I WAS SITTIN IN THE PARKING LOT OF THIS CARPET STORE TONIGHT WHEN A MARAUDER WENT BY, SLIPED IT INTO N AND REVED IT UP. BOY, HE'S CALLIN ME OUT I THOUGHT. :punch: FEEDIN TIME FOR THE GOAT. :) I SLIP IT INTO GEAR AND TOOK OFF TO CATCH HIM. I PULLED UP ALONG SIDE AND HE LOOKED THE GOAT OVER, WAVED AND NODDED HIS HEAD, SLAMED ON THE BRAKES, PULLED IN THE CENTER TURN LANE AND TURNED. WTF :banghead: IT'S AS THOUGH HE DIDN'T REALIZE WHAT THE GTO WAS, AND WHEN HE FOUND OUT, WAS TOO CHICKEN SH*T :banghead: ITS GETTING VERY BORING. NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY. :barf: EVEN RICERS, WHEN THEY PULL UP LOOK OVER AND SEE THAT ITS A GTO, WAVE AND THATS IT. LAST NIGHT A KID IN AND IROC SAID, AND I QUOTE "I DON'T WANT A PEICE OF THAT, NO WAY". :banghead: :banghead: THE GOAT IS GETTIN A REP.

Unless he had some serious mods, it would have been ugly. The Marauder is under-powered to be such a big car. I saw one @ the track running 16's.

I couldn't goad a 2004 Crossfire into playing on the I-5 south bound at the 118 either. He just looked over at me and moved to the right into the slow lanes. :gr_jest:

The 'WORD' is getting out, and Goats are selling....just took a while. I may have to 'shave' the badges... :D
Leave the badges on. Otherwise you'll cause an accident! That's why there's "GTO" on my windshield so these morons on the freeway KNOW what they're lookin at! :hail: :hail:

I don't know why. It's really not that fast. Most people only look at the hp numbers and 0-60 only to overlook the GTO's weight. Only few look at the 1/4 mile and trap speed. When first timers ask me what do I think of the car I tell them It's a heavy Vette made in Austrailia :patriot:

hey Old Goat
You ever heard of an evo 8 or sti? That car outperforms your gto in every category and for $30k. I guess the evo 8 and sti are not in your category because you have 2 doors compared to their 4 doors. I was just going on price. A 350Z isn't far behind you guys really only 2 door car competition you have for the 30k price range that is new.

Not every performance area. Top end acceleration goes to the GTO...The EVO and STI are near equals to the GTO in the 1/4 also and a beyatch to launch properly to get those times...

First as said above, they are rice...lol Second they are uncomfortable soap box ricers, I mean racers... So yes they are in a different class. Third, the 350Z would get spanked by a GTO every step of the 1/4 mile and then far worse up top...

yes I know the 350z run high 13's. Have you been in those cars. My buddy has an evo and I like the seats not as cool as my seats. I don't find them uncomfortable and the evo and sti will spank a gto in every category except doors, hp, and cylinders. I guess if you figure half a second is close in the 1/4 mile. Yeah who races from 100 to whatever. Usually people race from a dig or 30 mph roll. The evo and sti have good speed under 100. Zero to 100 or 30-100 I will put money on a stock evo or sti winning above that then I would pick the gto. Launching awd is harder than launching rwd but it is easy with practice.
