neo1973_gta01 was added to the database in October 2006.  Five months
later, neo1973_gta02 was registered by the same person (Harald Welte),
and gta02 has been merged.

Therefore, I suggest that the GTA01 will never be submitted now, moreover
I suggest that neo1973_gta01 was probably a prototype and neo1973_gta02
was probably the production platform.

So I suggest these references should be removed.  If the platform is not
going to be merged its pointless carrying the baggage around in drivers.
Maybe Harald can confirm?
