That's a lotta black!

When are the Virgo's due for their Rustoleum treatment?

:-P


FYI, I've got a perfect pair of early style single round headlamp surrounds.

Would compliment that early style flathood grill much better than the ones you've got on there now.

Holy cow! According to legend, there were only 20 black GT's, so you've owned 10% of them!

I seriously doubt that. He's had 2. Jordan had one. I know of at least 2 in Calgary. There is/was one for sale in Kelowna. That's 6 and we've touched about 1% of the country...

Yeah, and I've seen 2 more for sale in the past year up in BC. Definitely not as rare as once purported, but still cool.

sorry boys and girls if i sounded a little snotty on that last post just pisses me off when im thought of of some noob who just picked up this car and lie about everything ive owned doubtful yes that ive owned two original black gts well yes i have one was gtjordans which he painted white altho due to out of province inspections i couldnt get it to pass due to rust so it got gutted and sent the the crusher. i then bought this gt which is another original black gt but has a 5.0 plunked into it best of both worlds for me. i have a full on gt interior out of jordans car if anyone wants it let me know as well as a gt grill one good one bad due to i swapped to normal flat hood grill they both have fog lights and one has fog light switch

79 did not have butt cheeks as well. The 80s were the strip down version. Stock springs, smaller sways, no chassis braces ect.

Depends on your definition of a '1979', the changeover was about halfway through the year.
The spare wheel wells arrived with the 15" Virgo's & angled front spoiler lip. Wouldn't have said the Virgo-shod cars were "stripped down" per se, 5 alloys instead of 4 for example, but the suspension does seem to have been set-up to be a bit more idiotproof.

Don't know a lot about them, but I'm pretty sure I've read that the black OEM GT's were at or near the end of the run of GT's. Possibly like the quad-squares being put onto "1981" GT's sold in Australia.
