Ok...it's a cheezy play on American Werewolf in London, but I couldn't resist.

Hello from Worms, Germany. I am an American Soldier stationed in Germany for the moment. Just bought an A4 Black / Red interior GTO. Car is paid for, just awaiting shipment (April 5th?) from Indiana where the car is located now.

GTO will be used for my daily commuting (150km/day) on the Autobahn.

I am also the owner of 1991 GMC Syclone #0464.

Fire away questions.

Cool, let us know how it "commutes" and peoples reactions to it-

PS dont be suprised if somone asks if its a Opel Omega Coupe!

Oh I won't. I familiar with the history (Opel Omega / Cadilac Catera / Holden Monaro & now Pontiac GTO).

Can't wait to get it and have something nice to drive and replace my POS 4cyl Honda.

The recently retired Managing Director of Holden has had his "retirement present" sent to his home in Germany - A Holden Monaro with his wish list included in the build IIRC.

Where in Indiana is the car coming from? I am In Bloomington (south of Indianapolis)
and got my goat Jan 15th. The BMV said Mine was the first titled in the state. ( they were pretty confused and swore I had the VIN wrong as well)

From Horner Pontiac in Crawfordsville. You'd be more than welcome to cruise over there and take some dynamic Hi Res Digi pictures for me! They've got it in their "Car Museum" as they put it and it's waiting shipment after my next paycheck (1 Apr).

Let me know.

So what happens with the GTO and Syclone when you get relocated to a different base?
I pay $$$ to ship it back to the US.

I'm surprised you didn't get the six-speed... nice tall top gear for Autobahn cruising, all while getting 30 mpg! :)

I'll be interested to hear the reactions you get over there. I'm always told that fuel is $4 a gallon and that nobody can afford a V8 car over there.

Sigo, you've got to take some pictures of it in Germany, on the Autobahn, and maybe even show Dr. Woo from OT if you get the chance.

Yeah Dr Woo is a 21y/o from Ramstein just up the road from me. Didn't know that till the other night when I got banned. Gonna try and take him out to Switzerland this weekend if I get the chance and let him watch me rebuild 7 700R4's. haha

Sigo - once you get that car broken in - you have to tell us what it is like driving all out on the Autobahn - I am jealous just thinking about it. Enjoy

I thought Sigo was kidding. How do you get banned? How do they enforce it?
I said "in" which is really gay. They block your username.
