Here's something I haven't seen yet. The backseats have adjustable head rests. Now I'm wondering what that little yellow tag (pull) is under the head rest. CLICK->
The trunk is only 9 cubic feet in size. One cubic foot has been placed in the trunk. Eight more will fit. The trunk is small because the gas tank for the USA market had to be moved from where the Australian Monaro version had it. CLICK->
This is an interesting option on the 2004 GTO. It's a trunk escape release. This allows you to get out of the trunk in case you accidentally lock yourself in. It glows in the dark so you can find it. With only 9 cubic feet, I'm not sure if someone could actually fit inside the trunk. CLICK->
The rear decklid spoiler is bolted through the decklid with four bolts. I've heard that some owners perfer the look of them removed. I don't understand what they do with these holes - since they are installed before they hit the dealerships. CLICK->
The vehicle dataplate is located under the hood on the radiator support in the driver's side front corner on a 2004 GTO. The last letter in the Model number is D which is for the black interior. The PAINT K025 is for the Phantom Black paint. The TRANS M30 is for the automatic transmission. This car was built in September of 2003. You can see more information in our 2004 GTO Data Plate Decoder. CLICK->
The Tire and Loading Information sticker is located on the rear of the driver's side door jamb. It tells you how many people you can fit in the car and how much air to put in the tires. Not surprisingly, it leaves off the part about the guy who likes to ride in the trunk. CLICK->
The vehicle axle weight sticker is located on the rear of the driver's side door. As you can see, the weight is pretty evenly distributed between the front and rear axles. CLICK->
Cosmos Purple 2004 GTO owned by Richard Lopez from Dallas, Texas. Richard tells us, "It was ordered by the dealer last year. I bought the car while it was on the boat. It went from San Fransisco to Virginia, then by carrier the rest of the way to Dallas. I put over 200 miles on it over the weekend and it is sweeeet. I'm being patient with the car for now. I can feel the power - it's been over
25 years since my last one." CLICK->

Front tire of Richard's Cosmos Purple 2004 GTO. Those are 17 inch wheels. With this lighting, the paint is mostly black with purple highlights. CLICK->
The Texas inspection sticker is purple too! The long silver plate in the lower left corner of this picture is the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) plate. You can just make out the 6G2 part. CLICK->
Purple leather is the only interior color you can get with the Cosmos Purple paint. CLICK->
Besides the purple leather seats, there are purple accent panels in the doors and around the center console. Richard selected the automatic transmission for his ride. PICTURE SET CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE ...
Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Greg Gile (ggile.@bendcable.com) - "A huge thank you for all the information in GTO Text Topics! Have been looking for a 68 or 69 convertible (first GTO purchase). I now know things to look for I otherwise wouldn't have."
