Bought my "Black Bird" in 1993,
brand new, and I'm still driving it !!
121,000 miles and still rolling.
Unlike a lot of other guys, I've had NO
serious problems. Original auto
transmission, but I've replaced the
radiator, the AC compressor
solenoid and front suspension toe
control links on both sides, replaced
brakes all the way around (fronts
twice) and I'm on my third set of
Goodyear GT+4's. The car still goes
like a scalded dog, and its only quirk
is that @#$% "Check Engine" lite,
(probably a bad O2 sensor). I'm
looking at replacing her with a new
GTO, though, (if I can sneak it in the
garage without my wife noticing...)
The awesome Yamaha 3.2L
V-6......can you imagine how much
power Yamaha could have milked
out of this dude TODAY ???
Bring it back with AWD, and the
Cobra supercharged V-8, and they'll
sell like pancakes !!!
I purchased the car from my company
where it was used as a fleet car. It
has been through two teenage drivers
and one front end accident. It had
about 65,000 miles on it when I got it
and I had no repairs on until the
started failed around 95,000 miles. I
had it tuned up about that time- first
one. I spent around $1100 on
transmission repairs at about 120000
miles. Still runs nice.
