Official NC GTO Sightings Thread

I had just fininshed having lunch with a customer and had told him how, in a year of ownership, I had only seen a few other GTO's on the road and in parking lots, but that I had never seen one on the road and going the same direction.

Twenty minutes later, I was cruising down I-40 in Raleigh, dialing a number. I glanced in the review and there was another Quicksilver. Wow!

I couldn't really see her through her window tint but we both waved as she went by. She was in an '05 with red "GTO" lettering on the rear bumper cover.

Cool.

Earl, Check here as well: http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35126 (post #75 in particular)
There is a pontiac car club in Raleigh with a web site, but I couldn't dig up the link in the few min. I have.
Even though I live in SC, I try to keep up with the Raleigh area goings on since I'm up there about every other week on average.

My wife saw a red, possibly '05, yesterday in Zebulon. She said it had twin pipe side exhaust on it below the doors and GTO lettering across the top of the windshield. Anyone on this forum?

Checking in!!! 04', QS, M6, Garner, NC. Planning on attending CAM in December, hopefully nice weather. NO WAY, Woodies has the best wings here in the Triangle, Hooters are too greasy.

No one spots my car cause it's STEALTH. Almost had a paving truck take me out in the parking lot here at work last Thursday eve., he did not see me until 6" from my car, then locked em' up. NO damage. Whew!!!!!!!

Can't wait to meet everybody.

I wasn't actually talking about bicyclists in general, I was trying to make a joke, an old joke that my grandpaw used to tell me. Sorry. It's not that funny anyways.

Saw a black 04 on S. Saunders in Raleigh today. Think it lives near me, as I saw it near the house about a week ago. Lady driving it, and didn't even give a wave back oh well.
