Hey everyone. Just bought my new to me GTO today. '06 brazen orange M6 with 48k on the clock. Stock other than a magnaflow catback(which is funny because that's the one I wanted but didn't want to spend that much money on).
Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. Live in the bothell area. Don't see many around which is cool and not so cool at the same time. Hopefully there's a meet up around these parts at some point. Would be cool to see others around here.
Hey, welcome. There are a bunch of us around. Some daily drivers that you may see and some that only come out on special occasions. There is a local GTO club that is heavy with classic GTO's but quite a few (like me) new gen cars too (the web site shows 10 of 78 are new gen). Not much activity in the winter but a bunch of stuff in the summer. Keep an eye on this board and maybe the local club site too. http://www.northwestlegends.com
Keep an eye for the Muscle Car Meet at the Triple X drive in in Issaquah, WA in August 2013 and new this year will be a second muscle car event, both sponsored by the GTO club, and the new one will be at Griot's in Tacoma, WA in September 2013.
The other big event is the Tiger Run in Bend, OR in June 2013 put on by the Oregon GTO club, the Goat Herd. Jason of that club has the king of BOM's!
Seen here in Issaquah (in a photo that belongs to Jason - I love this shot).
Best E.T. to date 11.93@114MPH
Hoosier Quick Time ET Slicks and MT Skinnies
Special Thanks to Raygnicky for all his help to make these times possible and to all my Buddies in our group!!
Also thanks to ACE for loaning me his skinnies.
Thanks for the warm welcome. Ill definitely check out the local gto forum an look out for a m&g. I've been to XXX in issaquah so I'm familiar with the area, and there is always a cool group of cars, or so it seems.
I am in love with this color. Always have. It's the only one ive ever seen in person actually. So I'm thrilled to have it. Cant wait to see it in the sun now. With 48k on the clock, I'm hoping I finally found the car I will keep for a long time. I've always wanted one, so I'm here to stay, probably haha.
So y'all allow build/documentary threads here or is there a better place for it?
And welcome to the board. BOM is a very nice color. Seen a few in person and the color does pop.
And you will have to see Jason's in person. His build on his goat is top notch (same color).
On the hunt for an automatic goat....

-Sean Nelson to me in response to finding out how far I drove to recieve a copy of Harvey Danger's final album from him personally.
That's good to know. And thanks on the color compliments.
I saw a grey/blue(unsure of color name) on the way to work going south on 405. It's the only other one I ever see.
So this week I've ordered a new intake and a new Mgw-p shifter. Gonna get a dyno run Saturday with some autocross guys and see where my baseline is. Oh and I hopefully will be picking up a set of stock 18s tonight. That's the best news haha.
Looks like it has a sunroof? We will most likely meet you this summer, enjoy your car!
'05 Red/Red A4
122HH Maggie cooled by Active Interchiller, Lingefelter CAI, 1 7/8 Coated Kooks W/ Magnaflow Catback, SLP 160 thermostat, TR6 plugs, Mav. Man gauge surround W/color matched SCSS WB, CF Banshee hood, Spencers full Sap kit, Mav. Man Spoiler and rear insert. BC Racing Coilovers.
Thanks. I'm glad it has one. One more thing to worry about(leaks wind noise etc) but cool that its there. Wife hates orange, but likes the sunroof. So just remind her it is there when she says she doesn't like the color. Better say that than she's f'n looney for not liking the color.
