My baby is up for sale, a 2006 Impulse Blue Metallic GTO with black interior, 6 speed, factory 18" wheels, & less than 33k mostly highway miles. It's mostly stock & original, garage kept, & has led a pretty coddled life for a performance car. I haven't gotten around to taking it to the track, but I have confirmed that it's quite fast () & that it will exceed the tire's ability to maintain traction through the first couple of gears. Easy.
- GMM rip race shifter
- Pedders 0 drop rear springs
- Pedders bushings including
front radius rod
- poly swaybar endlink bushings
- full alignment to Pedders specs
- SLP (I think) skid plate
- K&N air intake
- Drag bags (I got them for the sagged stock springs, & kept them when I put the pedders springs in)
- skip shift eliminator
- The car is still on the original Bridgestone tires with decent tread still. That said, you should probably plan to replace them before 40K miles.
- Mechanical condition excellent. No issues at all or ever.
- Interior excellent. Rear seat stitching has been fixed.
- Exterior good. Here's why I don't say excellent:
There's a scratch & small dent in the left rear quarter. This happened when I first got the car, & I chose not to repair it.
The bottom of the front fascia has some parking curb scuffs. You can't see much from up top, but from underneath you'd think I'm a terrible parker (no comment).
Other than those issues, the paint is excellent with a couple small rock chips & scratches commensurate with 33k miles of easy use.
(see next post)
- owners manual, code card, original window sticker, & folder full of receipts & stuff included.
- 2 big keys & glovebox key included.
- Stock stuff (shifter, airbox, bushings, skidplate) included if you want it.
- New ignition cylinder included. Old one hasn't acted up yet, but new one is on hand.
- One floormat screw missing (it broke).
TERMS: $17,500 This is KBB trade in (wholesale!) value for good condition.
Title in hand, & I'm in SW GA. Come & get it!

Reason: sold it!
1. Replaced the sagged rear springs @ around 8K miles. Could already see inside of rear tires wearing more than outside edge.
2. Subframe alignment & full 4 wheel alignment (to Pedders specs) at same time.
3. Not too many burnouts.
4. Mostly highway miles.
Beautiful looking Goat at a great price. If I was a little closer to being home (deployed) I would definitely see about purchasing this one. If by some means it's still up for sale in a couple of months I'll give you a PM and come and take a look at it. If it is sold I hope it goes to an owner who will take care of her.
