"Even though it'* a Grand Prix, calling this Vette-powered 350-hp Poncho a GTO wouldn't have been a misapplication of the label"

Was written under that picture you took from the article.

So the picture is of the GP and a fiberglass hood like that can be bought for the gp shown in the picture below.Not an exact replica but very nice the same.



I can have one made exactly like this one


for anyone who wants one on there Bonneville or any other car they want. Like I have been saying all along the v8 is a real solution. A few mods and a fwd or rwd v8 in your Bonneville and Ka Pow you have something that just cannot be bought or compared too. Even if the Rwd Bonneville comes out in 2005 they will not be vettes. a vette under a Bonneville would be very styling. I wish I had the cash right now I would do it myself. The cheapest way is to buy a camaro drive train and then the rest is custom fab mounts.

So, is it a GP with GTO badging, or is it the proposed GTO? Thanks for the clarification.

Ummmm...maybe my eyes are a little sharper than the rest of you old farts, but isn't that little bulge on the hood in front of the driver a tach bulge? Or did somebody point this out already. Look closely.

Dude stop and smell the roses. It is a 2001 debut of a one off 350hp vette powered Rwd GP with a few goodies added. They used a GP body too. Read the article I posted it covers the whole thing. I knew it could be done it was just a matter of time before it happened. So for the big cats willing to spend money right now I can have one made.

Read??? I'm a guy, I don't need to read the instructions, I have pictures (he said as he tried putting the seat post in the stearing yoke...3:00 am Christmas eve).

I'm a duphus! I didn't read the entire article.
