Read the article, they cancelled the GTO because they are discontinuing the Monaro platform.

Imported cars into the US have to be at least 25 years old. It'* only 15 in Canada, but obviously we are both screwed when it comes to the Monaro.

Depends...Its expensive but some people have successfully imported things like skylines.

I bet you could get one here. It may have to be in a few pieces but I bet you could do it.

I love GM and and the Bonneville and the Buick Grand National

but i never liked that new GTO and im glad its going, the new Camaro i dont like either, GM just cant bring back the Muscle look in the new cars there makeing, i think they need to watch what Ford and Dodge are doing and try to do the same type of Retro muscle car looks.

Like this new car i really want

Come to think of it all they said was that the monaro was being discontinued and I rerember reading that the camaro was sposidly going to share a platform with the gto which could mean that even though the "current" platform the gto is being based on is getting the ax doesn't mean the gto is also geting cut but rather moving to a new platform

Doesn't bother me one bit that the GTO is being ended. I have never liked it. Same goes for the 09 Camaro. Hideous attempts at trying to revitalize the yesteryear of sportscars.

Nothing worse than looking at a Cobolt with an LS2.
