YES. GTAs are hard to come by. I would pay that price myself.

The 305'* aren't really that powerful but that car is BEAUTIFUL.

For that reason alone and for others previously mentioned, yes.

Actually, '89 was a good year for the LB9 (305 TPI). It made 230hp/300tq.

Ah, I was thinking of the 170 hp version.

In that case, double reason to go for it!
