Default Latest GTO scoop. Literally.

'05 GTO will get a new hood design with scoops. Dealers are being provided these hoods to swap onto the '04 GTO'* still sitting at dealerships to boost lanquishing sales.

I guess the word is out that they aren't that hot on the track?

Now with the LS2 engine, the 400 horses should increase sales.

BTW, twin-scoop hoods are an option on the '05. Not standard.

You said last month the dealerships are getting the 05 hoods to slap on the 04? How'd you know before they did?

na more along your lines Will, I mentioned last moth that the GTO was getting the scoops, new tail pipes and a newer front fascia. These are optioned (I don't know about the front fascia)
and the dealership isn't a place where I gather info, No need to go up thier unless I'm purchasing something for the Green guy or going brand newish.

My info didn't come from the dealer

This time it was a rather public source. But I can't reveal it until the Trivia in Gen Chat runs out.

I bet i've been at that site now that i think about it. But i'll let the trivia go on.

Slouch at the track? Car is fine at the track, it'* made to do more then go straight anyways. Don't make me dig out the Top Gear Review.
