Default WICKED COOL OR WICKED FAKE????

Ok guys. check out this ride. It says its a "Mustang GTA"..........but what exactly is that? Does that even exist? I havent heard of it so I am pretty skeptical.

Dont get me wrong, it looks awesome......but 535 HP???? lets be realistic here. I know the steeda rear racing wing adds some HP , but not that much!!!!! There's no mention of a SC or Turbo????? i dont get it

Actually I think the GTA was just his bit of customization. Im sure hes got some sc or turbo but as far as the car im sure it is real. I think it looks pretty pimp **** if i do say so myself. That steeda wing is sexy.

The funny thing is that it's not a real GT though. When it shows the back, on thw part that covers the key thing (sorry , i'm drawing a blank on the word here!) to open the durnk - instead of the horse like we have on our V6's, it should say GT. So that's a fake for one thing. But it looks too different in all the pictures. It's nice but maybe his or her name starts with an A so they added that haha. It's nice though. That color is growing on me the more i see it!

yeah i noticed the "TRUNK BADGE" too........lol

and you would think that if its SCed, then you would at least have some sweet pics of the engine!!!!! I would love to see the engine that puts out 535 HP. And yes, i also like the look, but i just wanted to know what the deal was with the "GTA" and 535 HP.

Well, first of all, this guy is full of ****. A "GTA" was a model back in the 60's or 70's, meaning GT Automatic. Second of all, he mentions a lot of parts but no power adder. He would definitely talk it up if he had one. The HP is rediculous, all he has done besides suspension work is added cosmetic crap that weighs the car down.

Some people...

BTW, he could have easily changed the rear decklid emblem out, who knows. For all we know it could be a v6, odd that with so many pics posted there are none of the engine bay...

TRUNK BADGE! Haha, at least you knew what I was referring to! And like someone else said, he did add a lot of crap that would weigh the car down. Strange how he says he has 500 somethin hp but doesn't say if there is a turbo charger or anything in it. There is SO much I want to do to my car it's ridiculous. Unfortunately, between my car payment & insurance I can't afford to do much haha. I'm getting my new exhaust put in most likely today though WOO HOO!

I thought "GTA" was a designation for the Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am. Much like Cobra was a designation for a Mustang GT.
