1987 Renault GTA

 The Renault GTA was a one-year sporty version of the AMC/Renault Alliance. Available as a coupe or convertible, the GTA was available in only a few colors, and was truly limited, with only 5,515 coupes made. From a performance standpoint, the 95 HP and 10 second 0-60 time are laughable today, but put the GTA at the same level as respected rivals like the GTI and CRX. Also included with the GTA package was lots of sweet styling cues, like the large alloys, bodykit, and interior modifications. This forgotten 80s pocket-rocket (much like the Chevy Sprint Turbo) is a little mossy, but still looks sharp with its body kit and bright red paint.

  1. I had one for 7 years put 150K on it, worse day of my life when I traded it in for a Saturn. I miss that car, not the repair bills which were few and far between, but expensive. What a trip down memory lane.
