I was thinking about it today, and realized that it has been a full year since I ordered my GTO. I am not sure of the exact date, but I do know it was the last week of June last year. Pontiac sent me an e-mail about the (Now Infamous) pre-order program. I called my Dealer that day. Showed up at the dealer on 2-16-04, and I took it home 3-5-04.

Did you have to pay above invoice, having it ordered it so early?

That was not Tails! It was an impersonator, flexinator, whatever you call it.

I did not pay a penny more than MSRP. Did not put down a deposit either, dealer kissed my butthole french style the whole time, so to speak. He told me that I would probably not get the car until March or April, and when I found this site and the tracker, they were as excited about it showing up as much as I was.

Mine showed up at the dealer on 2-16, but I waited to pick it up for insurance cost reasons. Made it my birthday present to myself.

I can't believe some you guys were willing to wait so long....I quess it's a catch 22 because you want the car so bad that you'll wait for that particular one instead of getting something else. But 10 months is a damn long time! :eek:ff the a

I was thinking that it was the 28th, but I am not sure. I wanted to deal with My dealer because I know what kind of service I will get from him.

Back before the whole upload your own avatar option was availible, when I would reply to Tails, he sometimes got confused because I had Duff Man as my avatar... :drink: :drink: :drink:

Well I was originally told I would have my GTO by mid December. That would have been about a 5 month wait. Thanks to some dealer allocation B.S. my car wasn't even built until Feb. 20'th. I received it within the "60-90" post TPW..

Hey, Tails... Sorry about that. You both have the Duff Man... The price included the Gas Guzzler Tax. Which was a big suprise to me..($1000). 10 mo. is a long wait. I have always wanted a GTO. I missed the 60's by a few years. I did have older cousins who became my best BUDDIES w/ thier GTO's & 442's. Glad I waited.. Cos
