Just kidding. We all have different tastes and thats fine. Personally I prefer the safety and modibility of the later gen Bonnies, but I like all of them (even the old battle tanks of the 70s and 80s).

[quote="BonneMeMN"] Sorry if you don't like it, but get over it! Why does it matter what I like? quote]

There is no need to get bent out of shape. i was just wondering why you did not like the newer cars.

It matters what you like because you made a post stating you didn't like something. i am a reason guy, i like to hear the reasons behind the opinions.

There are a lot of cars i don't like because the styling is not my cup o' tea but i still respect the fact that these people take care of them.

No hostility from my end :P , just a freindly (hence the use of "besmirtched" - its not like we are in the middle ages where this word carries any serious insult today - does it? ) banter in the forum.

I think the GTO is one of the better things to come out of GM in recent memory.

Nice car, wrong name. It just doesn't say "GTO" to me...

I agree, I like the idea but the sheet metal could be sportier/ don't name it GTO, I think of it as a Holden which it IS, just americanized.

The back end is growing on me, the front still needs some work.

love the car and Have got the honor of driving one! Very fast for stock ( and they are so light). Still not a GTO! Shold have named that one the vibe and threw the vibe in the trash!

someone photoshop a big *** hood scoop on the front for ram air.. i wonder how much that'd change the appearance. I think GM wanted it to be a sleeper.. some of 'em even have dual exhaust that "appears" as a dual outlet single exhaust.. what a bad idea.. I'd maybe pay 20k for a used one in the future.. maybe..
