NW indiana roll call

allright this has probably been asked before but how many of us live in northwest indiana? i have seen a ton of goats lately, namely this one '06 IBM that runs through my town (hobart) all the time, a torrid red '04 and another '05 that looks EXACTLY like mine running around my town, and lastly i've seen a PBM 05' parked by the autozone on 61st and merrillville, and another silver 04 running around the same town.

fess up!

anyone who lives in northwest indiana, lake, porter, newton, jasper, laporte counties...

Lake, I am all over the place.
The BOM has been put away for the winter though.
Most everyone I see in Lake never wave or anything. I wave at them and they look at me like I am crazy!
There is a silver one I see in the Schererville area once-in-awhile that waves back.

Thumbs up

Lake county here as well.
DD Torrid Red '05 A4. I'm usually all over the place, Merrillville, Schererville, Crown Point, Valpo etc. I am constantly on the look out for other GTOs and wave whenever I see them. Just last week a PBM either '05 or '06 and I prowled the streets of Griffith while headed to work one morning. Haven't seen him before and not sure who it might be on here. There are quiet a few of us in the area.

Looks like there's going to be a nice size gathering in the making this year. There is a long post on Indiana sittings on here previously but I think it's on page two by now. As soon as the weather clears and warms up, we all need to schedule a get together.

BTW, just to let all those of you know might be looking for a GTO, or have friends who are looking, Schepel Buick, Pontiac, GMC in Merrillville currently has 6 GTOs on the lot.

- IBM '06 A4, Blue interior, 18's, 4330 miles, $26995
- Torrid Red '06 A4 Black interior, 17's, 4095 miles, $26995
- Spice Red '06, M6, Black interior, 17's, 2784 miles, $27995
- Torrid Red '06, A4 Red interior, 17's, 863 miles, $27995
- Spice Red '06, A4 Black interior, 17's, 1528 miles, $27995
- PBM '06, M6, Black interior, 18's, 8803 miles, $27995

Here's the link.

http://www.schepelbuickpontiacgmc.com/

All of them look to be recent trades and in very good condition. And I'm sure they won't last long once the words gets out about them. And nope, I don't have any affiliation with them, just spreading the word.

Also, there is an '04 Yellow Jacket at the Chevy dealership in Crown Point on Taft Rd.

Highland here. PBM M6 05, but i decided to put mine in the garage for the winter so you wont be seein mine around for a month or two

I think that is the guy I talked to when i was lookin for a car. I was merely shopping around and wasnt sure what i wanted yet. I was actually lookin at some older stuff 300 zx tt, 3000gt vr4, supra, etc. I went there just lookin to test drive the gto and he came out treating me poorly. He was sayin how they dont let those cars go for test drives, then sayin he needed to run my credit and i could buy it and return it if i didnt want it. It took about a half hour of arguing with this guy before he finally let me drive it. Maybe cause I'm young (25) but the way he treated me i wouldnt have bought a car from him. That test drive did however seal the deal on me buyin a gto. It was all i thought about for the week or two i was looking for the right color combo, price, mileage etc.

Dennis is who i bought my car from! bought a G6 from him too... great guy...

i walked in and asked about the GTO, and he immediatly started working with me on price. He was eager to give me a testdrive too. i dunno if it was the same guy you talked to, dadler, it doesn't sound like him.

oh and schepel does seem to move a lot of GTO's. they always seem to get low-mileage ones, too...

don't ever bother going to paul sur. they tried to sell me an 04 GTO with piston slap.

thats odd. my salesmans name was Rich and i had no problem taking mine for a test drive. he was driving a c5 so he was sorta knowledgable on the gto.

I am from highland too my friend, I live near the HS. If anyone has seen an IBM '05 driving around NWI, its me. I have a girlfriend that lives in Valpo and every once in a blue moon I will take the goat out there. What color is yours dadler02? I have seen a silver and a black one that I think live in Highland.

No, I surfed this forum for a long time without signing up. I bought it in June. I felt the same way about waiting, but I totally fell for the IBM car they had, and I was already waiting for like a month before they got that car. The only major reason I wish I had an '06 is for the tail lights but I figured I would have already bought the '06 OEM ones by now, but I haven't. I really like the car I have though, beautiful color and it run fantastically. I bought it with 8,900 miles on it and got a decent price on it. I know I can find a bunch of OEM parts on here, but if you know anyone nearby off the top of your head that wants to part with some '06 tail lights, definitely let me know.

Thanks man I am definitely going to look into these. We will have to get everyone from the area together for a cruise one day, maybe meet at the mall in merrillville. Definitely in the spring after I shake the cold out of my car.

There have been a few other people commenting on this thread that are from around here. It would be sweet to cruise up onto US12 and cruise next to the beach in beverly shores. Maybe we can get like 5 or 6 people from here.
