Original Owners Club

This thought crossed my mind, so I thought I would start a thread to see who bought their 2004 - 2006 GTO new and still has it. Mine has 56k on it. So post up if you are in this group.

October 2006 Los Angeles. Didn’t test drive it.
I remember trying to decide between a phantom grey, torrid red and quick “find a tree or fence” silver metallic. I chose qsm because it would blend in with the other hundred million grey and silver cars when driving like an idiot.
Up to 78,000 miles. Been installing a clutch, driveshaft and some more bushings... for 2 years.

Still have mine 3 - 20- 2007 miles on it today are 7043.
I took my grandson to his 1st day of preschool in the GTO And he still remembers that day. He is 16 now and graduates in 2 years and he wants to drive himself to his last day of school. That's not going to happen!!
I let him drive it but I will be right next to him.

Yeah, but it is in the Lounge which is full of badda-bing types

Well anyway, Bought late Nov. 2004 during the fire sale. Had 28miles as it need to be driven from another dealer 54379 miles as of today.
Used to track it a bit in 2005, 2006, 2007 then work changed so minimal driving time. Mostly garage queen the previous ten years.
Done some work to it. Always doing a little this and that.
Relatively trouble free car. Loads of quirks though.
Oh I am 54. This is the only new car I have ever purchased.

Bought mine Sept 04 when there
was a big rebate. Just turned 40 that summer and completed my MBA, so I wanted to reward myself. Wanted a performance car to actually drive, instead of worrying about my 67 Firebird. Put 40k in 4 years, then took it easy. 78k now.
Just had the SAP grilles, fascia and Banshee hood installed.
Proudly shares the garage with the Firebird.

Am I qualified for this group?

Greetings guys; I hope I qualify for this group. I purchased mine December of 06 with 4000 miles on it as GM had titled it. So am I a first owner or not? At first I thought it had been in the train wreck? It was built in June of 05 & I have learned that the train wreck was prior to that date? Anyway it's got 41,000 on it now. And I plan to attend the "Slay the Dragon" this coming October. And hope to attend the Goat Run 2020 if the event is held again. I have a Holden nose arriving soon for a new look. A dream I've had ever since I purchased it. With a name like mine it just seems right? Ole' Bob.

Yeah, i'm in a similar boat.

Purchased my 05 from a Pontiac/Buick/GMC dealer as a used car, at 5995 miles on the ODO, but it came with the Certificate of Origin from GM, as it was never titled. It was explained to me that it was a "GM company car" and some GM exec farted in the seat for 6 months before returning it. Not sure how true that is.
