Default GTO

Hot damn!!!!! I just drove a new guy at work'* 2005 GTO and that thing flys!!!! 400 HP and a 6 speed manual transmission. This is the fastest car I've ever driven!!! Him and I are the two Pontiac guys at work and he told me that I had to drive the GTO cuz he knew I'd appreciate it....and hell I do! I want one...BAD!!!!!! This is just classic American muscle with a modern day look. The suspension is tighter than the BMW'* I've driven and I guess it has an electronically charged rear suspension that lowers when you get ready to accelerate!

.......And people say Pontiacs suck......Bull ****!!!!!

You need to experience it man! 400 HP is just unbelievable. It'* like the car just is telling you to go fast. When I drove 30mph and the car rev'd like it was idoling.

Was the GTO experiance similar to this Viper video on UTube? I saw this last week and even though I'm not a Dodge guy, my jaw hit the floor. Check it out Haro, You'll like it!

Very similar! The G-Force was incredible!!! I guess the car has a Corvette engine and runs about a 13 second 1/4 mile. That'* gotta be a ton of money put in the Viper to get it to 9 Seconds!!!!
