So, safe to say you're not a rabid bunch of GM fans, huh?<br>That new Monaro/PontiacGTO is the biz! Around 30k in US dollars I believe. The drive of a beamer, with the power of a Porsche at a fraction of the money. How can it miss?<br><br>No, I don't get commission. <br><br>I wish. (sigh)<br><br>
Personal prefs I guess and what you are used to. The old GTOs were awesome, had some friends with those and they were sure fast. I saw a Pontiac concept car that I guess they may start building which really looked cool. It's called the Pontiac Solstice. Very sporty looking! It was in a recent issue of Car and Driver, in fact it was on the cover. Maybe check out CD online for pics?<br><br>
Saw the Monaro > GTO story in AutoWeek just recently, sounds like a cool idea and a good move for GM. Must admit to not being a GM fan in general after a few less than scintillating experiences with a couple of their cars years ago. Bob Lutz is doing some interesting things with GM though and a few of their cars are kinda cool...<br><br>Chris<br><br>Thunder is good, thunder is impressive, but it is lightning that does the work.<br>-Mark Twain
Was it '62 0r '63? I remember one of my highschool chums got a yellow GTO ragtop. Two 4-barrel Hollies, Hurst 4-spd shifter... major babe magnet. I had a black '61 Dodge Dart ragtop (remember the reversed fins?)with a push-button automatic (so your main squeeze could sit right next to you). Them were the days. *sigh*<br><br>

well, owned an Iroc in my younger days. It was a fun vehicle with the T-roof, V8, red and black paint job.<br><br>Getting really boring in my old age, drive a Subaru and looking forward to moving into a Jag X type next vehicle, then a volvo, and perhaps I'll retire with a Cadillac. So I'll start my driving life with a GM and end it with a GM.<br><br>looks like a cool car<br><br>[color:red]live free or die</font color=red>
I'm embarrassed to admit them. I'm a sucker for the likes of this[/b]</font color=blue>.<br><br>Small but versatile.

Excellent! Now pick a rhumba and sit down.. GM

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Maybe check out CD online for pics?<p><hr></blockquote><p>I'll do that. Haven't been there for months.<br><br>I'm not a GM fan, but the Monaro/Pontiac GTO is a highly competent performer, by all accounts. I've driven it's Commodore 4-door sibling and it's a heck of a car. The two door has the advantage of looking good as well.<br><br>
