TTA # 1416_ - Turbo Buick Forum
I wanted to get this out to the local turbo v6 community first. I am selling my 89 TTA – some of you may have
seen it at Bates, Fontana or local car shows. Car was purchased new by my father from Gibson Pontiac (was on
MiraMar Rd) on 6/10/89 and I’m technically the second owner. It’s basically a bolt on car, engine has never
been gone through (heads have never been off) and can be taken back to virtually stock as I have most every
stock part sans the MAF sensor and flex MAF pipe. I also have some memorabilia for the car as well, including
the owner’s kit, Indy jacket, lithograph, magazine articles, etc.

everything that has been done in its history. Has ran a best of 11.6 @ 117 on drag radials. Since this car is not a
low mile garage queen – buyers may have different intentions, as such I’ll offer it with different prices.
