October 2006 Los Angeles. Didn’t test drive it.
I remember trying to decide between a phantom grey, torrid red and quick “find a tree or fence” silver metallic. I chose qsm because it would blend in with the other hundred million grey and silver cars when driving like an idiot.
Up to 78,000 miles. Been installing a clutch, driveshaft and some more bushings... for 2 years.
Still have mine 3 - 20- 2007 miles on it today are 7043.
I took my grandson to his 1st day of preschool in the GTO And he still remembers that day. He is 16 now and graduates in 2 years and he wants to drive himself to his last day of school. That's not going to happen!!
I let him drive it but I will be right next to him.
Yeah, but it is in the Lounge which is full of badda-bing types
Well anyway, Bought late Nov. 2004 during the fire sale. Had 28miles as it need to be driven from another dealer 54379 miles as of today.
Used to track it a bit in 2005, 2006, 2007 then work changed so minimal driving time. Mostly garage queen the previous ten years.
Done some work to it. Always doing a little this and that.
Relatively trouble free car. Loads of quirks though.
Oh I am 54. This is the only new car I have ever purchased.
I am 42, bought GTO new when I was 27. Growing up in Detroit my dad and all my uncles had old school chevelle's, nova's, impala, road runners, hemi cuda, camaros, old GTO's, etc. I always wanted muscle car and my GTO might of been new school to them, but they all still love my GTO.
To start, my alternator is fine, I just made an observation.
I've seen a few posts and questions here (no, not ALL of them) regarding people having to move a bunch of things out of the way to replace the alternator. Some even said that the radiator fans have to be moved.
I got home today from...
Hi All! Doing a heads and cam on my gto and I broke the dreaded line going into the ac drier. I’d like to avoid replacing the whole line if possible but I’m having issues locating the adapters I’ve seen mentioned in threads. I saw one post where a guy used a Russell an to hard line adapter...
2005 GTO just replaced headliner and spliced this wire harness and put in a Deutsch connector to make any future removal easier. Anyone have any idea what the additional 3 wire plug (Black, green, pink) part of this harness was intended to be used for? Power rear view mirror? Mine does not...
Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
Got the Reduced Power issue sorted and after numerous WOT pulls, started seeming plumes of smoke out the back of the car. It was intermittent though. Oil level is fine, almost no oil in my catch can. Really surprised me today when smoke started...
