Car show that is. I participated in a local car show today celebrating our cities 125th b-day and out of 40 cars my baby won THE PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD. :thumbs: The only award given out. I got a ton of compliments on my Cosmos Purple Metallic. :cool: Within about 10 min of showing up my car was surrounded by virtually every entered car owner praising its color, performance, and style. :D So now I'm 1 for 1 and the next show is May 1st sponsered by Sparkle Auto.

DJ,

I was going to ask you how it went. Stupid work. I got ahold of the GTO club in Wichita, and they have a cruise set up for May 1st, with a car show in McPhearson. Thing is I have to work that weekend too. :mad: Is that the show you are going to?

Nice story. :) I have to agree, the '04 GTO gets a lot of attention and I've heard nothing but positive feedback. I've only seen one pic of the Cosmos Purple in this forum and it did look GREAT. Keep her clean and between the ditches. ;)

:D Congrats, 40 GTO. I have a Cosmo and the feed back is great. The purple leather real knocks them dead. It seems the purple paint has a pearl tint or a metal flake?? in it.

No. Actually a local detail shop that sells alot of products online is sponsering this event in Garden City along with a cruise in at Sonic Drive In. When I registered my car I was asked if I put the right year on the form as they didn't realize there was actually an 04 in GC.

Huh? That is typical. I did get an e-mail from you tonight though.
It is too bad that you cannot make the meetup this weekend in Baldwin City. We might have had the opportunity to have the first 2-purple picture.

Here are the rest of DJ's Show Winning Pics:
