    Another red 90 TGP

    I'll get to it eventually. I did get the fuel system all cleaned out and pump replaced on this car. Started right up and seems to run like new! The brakes seem to "work" somewhat, but I still don't trust them. I'm gonna grab a hydroboost setup today from the local u pull it. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    W-body.com Southern meetup 2019

    I'm definitely down for a Southern meet up of any kind. My TGP is nothing special to look at, but I still would enjoy meeting and seeing the other cars! Gatlinburg is always a fun place, and kinda central...

    Another red 90 TGP

    If I cannot find a decent black car, I will eventually repaint my daily but it will be the Gunmetal grey color from the 91 GTA Firebird. I think that with gold mesh wheels and the tan interior would look great. I've modified mine so much, that originality is long gone on this one...and it's unfortunate, but these cars just aren't worth a whole heck of a lot!

    Another red 90 TGP

    I've been driving my other TGP almost daily with no issues. The brakes are unreal with a very linear feel. The harder I press, the better they stop! (weird, right?!) I'll do the same procedure on this car, and possibly video it. I plan to make a full parts list as well. It's not a hard job, just takes a bit of welding on the hydroboost bracket from the astro van. Tallon mfg makes adj brake rods to fit, but I just cut and thread my original to make it adjustable. I have many pics of the last swap, just can't sit still long enough to type it all up!

    Another red 90 TGP

    I just picked this one up last weekend. I had it loaded and down the road when I stopped for fuel and then decided to look it over, lol. I was floored when I saw the mileage! The car had all the paperwork from its yearly inspections in the glovebox, confirming the mileage right up until 2008 when it was parked. I'm assuming it was the brakes that did it in. I originally purchased it for parts and the front valance and interior bits were what I was after, but now I believe she will be back on the road soon. Everything inside works like new, the switches feel crisp and positive as they should, all lights, sounds, gauges etc function. The car will fire and run for just a few seconds, so I've pulled the injectors and will drop the tank for a complete fuel system clean and put in a new pump and filter. I'll have my body shop guys pull and fix the quarter panel dent, buff her out as good as possible and see how well she looks. If it was a sunroof car, I would most likely keep it, but since it isn't, it'll be looking for a new home in a few months. Now, if I could only find a dang black car!!

    I own a 90 TGP....again

    Still here, mainly on the fb page however...I now have 3 TGPs, lol. Been driving the original car daily now for the last 7 months and the brakes work great! I picked up another 90 just a few days ago with only 48k on it. I'm gonna swap the brakes on it and put it back on the road as well.

    Old TGP owner, new member

    Turn signal switch is your smoke issue, mine had the same problem. Drop tank and clean it out. Buy a Walbro255 fuel pump and swap it while the tank is down. New filter and blow through the lines with air. Seafoam treatment when you get it all back together and itll be good. Just did this to my 90 which had sat since 2001.

    I used an Astro van set up as the accumulator is shorter and more compact. We use them on alot of pro-touring builds and they work great.

    I own a 90 TGP....again

    Hi all, I recently bought a 90 TGP that had been sitting since 2001. Time wasn't kind to it for sure. The seats are shot, the paint is baked but I still like the old thing. I spent a day buffing and cleaning it up , and generally seeing what I have here. The guy I got it from had swapped in a new fuel tank, new filter and had gotten it running. He had attempted a brake booster swap but that was where I picked it up. In the last week, I gathered the parts I needed and over this weekend I swapped in a hydroboost brake setup from scavenged junkyard parts. Even with the old pads and rotors, this thing stops amazingly! I plan to do a full write up as I took pics during the swap. I had a black 90 TGP many years ago and loved that car, and always vowed to have another. This one may be rough, but I'm still going to enjoy driving it!
