Phantom Black 2005 GTO, engine view. This is the all-aluminum 6.0L Gen IV LS2 V8 engine with 400 hp and 400 lb-ft torque. The hood scoops are closed off similar to those of the 68-70 GTOs. They have a plastic piece that bolts from the underside. The plastic piece could be removed and replaced with an open version if it becomes available. The engine however, is still ducted to receive air from the front grille. See that aluminum block with all the tubes coming out of it on the far side of the engine behind the yellow dip stick handle. That is the 4-channel anti-lock brake valve. CLICK->
Here's Tom at the wheel of his Phantom Black 2005 GTO. Site helper, Jeff Klein, took this picture while riding in the back seat. Jeff commented, "Tom had told me he was coming over to show me his new GTO. I heard it coming down the street before seeing it. It sounds good when riding in it too. Tom let me drive it. I found it a bit hard to find all those gears. I didn't do too bad. Except for one downshift when I hit 2nd instead of 4th. The back seat was roomy - even with the two guys in the front being over 6 feet tall. The exhaust sounded real good from the back seat as well." CLICK->
