What are your plans for your GTO?

Ok, now that they are almost here, I'm curious to see what everbody has planned for their GTO. And the 'Spinal Tap' answer would imply you were going to museum piece your car - trailer it to shows - that kind of nonsense;)

Forgot - mine will be my summer daily driver.

I will commute to work every day just styling and profiling. If anybody picks on me then I will just run away from them. :D When I really want to open it up I will take it to the local track and run it in circles for a while.

Mine will be a daily driver (except when it rains!). I plan on keeping my 98 GTP for at least a few months. I need it to teach my 15 year old daughter to drive. I don't think I'll turn her loose in my new GTO just yet!:p
Mine definitely won't be a daily driver. That title will stay with the Saturn. However, it will be used more often then not, and I can see it coming out to play 2 or 3 times a week for both local and long hauls.
Mine really doesn't fit any of those. It will be a street/drag strip toy that will see summer driving duty (NOT DAILY mind you)
Daily Driver for me.
Street toy for mine! My 98 GTP that right now has 10,500 actual miles and is in storage will go to the daily driver for summer months. My Astro van gets winter duty.
My car will be driven anytime the roads are good. My '96 Monte stays on for winter duty, it's still a good car. It's had all highway miles (I didn't put my first set of brake pads on until almost 94,000 miles were on it, and the rears are half worn at 115k), it gets good mileage, and the factory stereo system still sounds excellent. It's never troubled me mechanically, just the routine scheduled maintenance. Plus, it's not worth anything anymore, so why sell it. It has Bridgestone Blizzaks for winter so unless you're an idiot it's unstoppable in the snow. But any clear day regardless of season the Goat will be out. I think I'm going to get FM modulators installed in both cars and get a Delphi SkyFi to use for both cars so I can have XM for road trips no matter which car I use. Anyone else doing this?? What do you think of it??
My Monaro turns 1 year old this week. So far I have afforded to spend about $10k on it with some performance and some cosmetic changes. These include GTS front bar with SSteel mesh and flake paint insert, 2 piece engine cover color matched, 19" GTS wheels, Extractors and full stainless exhaust, window tinting and several series 2/3 upgrades.
My next mod is 3.91 diff gears and then LS1 Edit then followed by fitting some good brakes.:bubbrub
