Default My Other Pontiac: 2005 GTO

When the GTO'* were reintroduced in 2004 they instantly became my dream car but @ $33K-$34K the price was out of reach. Finally, 2 years ago I was able to purchase a perfect 4,800 mile 2005 model.

At four years old now, it currently has 8,400 miles on the 400 horsepower LS2 6-speed. It is 1 of 680 Midnight Blue Metallic 6-speeds produced for the entire three year production run.

The mod list is very mild because I wanted it to be easily converted back into factory stock condition:

*K&N CAI
*160 Deg Thermostat
*H-pipe & Flowmasters
*GMM (Australia) billet shifter
*Lou'* short shifter stick
*Team Voodoo Pearl Powdercoat Billet Shift ****
*Lovells (Australia) Bushings, Diff Inserts, Struts, Shocks
*Lovells 3/4" drop springs
*Work Meister 2 piece custom order staggered wheels 18 X 8 and 18 X 9.5 WORK WHEELS : 877-361-0296
*Toyo Proxes T1R 245/45-18 and 265/35-18
*Venture Shield Clear Bra
*15% Tint







I'll have more pics of this and my other stuff soon, but unfortunately I've had the double whammy of losing 8 years worth of pics from my hard drive PLUS my Villagephotos.com photo hosting site going down the tubes with hardware failures/viruses, and possibly just crooks...having to start over

I wanted one too, but I live in Canada and not only could you not buy one here, you could not buy one from the States and import it. I believe that has changed in the last year or so, and we can now import one, but by that time I had my eye on the G8 GXP.

Very nice car. Let'* get a supercharger in there.

Thanks guys!

The best news is that Villagephotos.com came up (at least for a while yesterday) & I was able to get some pics back on my computer.

Here'* a pic from last September right before we ran "the Tail of the Dragon" US129 on the Tennessee/North Carolina border:



My a$$ end along with a fellow Goat owner in front of Brushy Mountain State Prison, which housed Martin Luther King assassin James Earl Ray until his death:

Great car. A coworker had a 04 GTO and dropped a supercharger on it. He was putting down 500+hp.

Very nice ride. Too bad the new GTO had such a short run but hopefully that will end up being good for those that were able to get one. Thanks for sharing.
