Nice....nameplate issues aside I think it's a cool car. If that was simply called the next Grand Prix GTP everyone would have loved it.

How's that 6 liter on gas though?

The GTO isnt a domestic. Its an import from Australia. Probably a few tinnies of Tooheys tucked behind the rear kicks.

Plus the original front end looks ALOT better than the pontiac BMW-ish grille.

Anyway, nice car, Jim. I bet it's a blast to drive. I read the GTO got some good reviews compared to the other sporty domestic cars this year.

Jim - That is a BADASS car!! I have really been thinking about trading in the SUV for another car, and the goat is definitely on my list!

But then I think what would I do when snowmobiles, wave runners, bikes, and dirt bikes are in need of being towed....I wish I had enough money to have 2 vehicles....

You'll need to keep us updated as to how it treats ya!

Nice ride James!

If Colin was making noise in the last car...I imagine he's started full on swearing in this one.

Instead of "Zoooom Zoooooom" you get "Holy Shit!"

...now stop kicking up gravel in the LITH route.

Jim, did you opt for a manual transmission?

I like the body style, remincent of the '97-02 Grand Prix GTP coupes (damn, I wish I had a manual transmission option for my GTP). I love the sound of those V8s.
