How many GTOs are still on the streets today ? I feel like I'm seeing them get totaled left and right. I occasionally see another one maybe once a month. I'm located in socal btw. I own a SRM I've seen one other torrid red on the i-5 in the past month.

this is a good question.

i know slammin86 (supposedly) did the research years ago, but even if his numbers were correct, numbers have definitely dwindled since then.

There’s no way to know how many are actually still on the road and driveable. Never has been and never will be.

Not too many people like daily driving 10+ year old cars, so it’s not shocking.

Rarely see 5th gens driving around anymore either, yet over 600k of those were made.

Nice! Very low miles. Garage queen. I would like to get my 2004 at the same HP/TQ as yours. How do you like it compared to stock?

Fantastic now. Heads/cam/fast 102lsxr, 3200 stall, 1 piece carbon fiber driveshaft, etc. Blast to drive, I have also replaced almost all bushings with polyurethane ones, new shocks, springs,etc is handles much better now. I have also removed a few hundred pounds from car too. But still love it, only drive it in summer and never in rain for last 12 years or so, so yes garage queen, but I drive it 3 to 4 days a week all summer.

Mine has 136,000 miles but it was my daily for eight years. Now it is a straight up project car. Looking at your cam specs that is where I want mine to be. Fast intake, upgraded heads, and new cam. 👍

I wouldnt be surprised if only 15k were left. We started with roughly 41k. These get totalled and parted out a ton.

You really think? 15k... I guess that could be... I emailed Grundy a little bit ago asking if they would be able to get any data on this. Im curious.
