Phantom Black 2005 GTO owned by Michael Hall from Dracut, Massachusetts. Michael tells us more, "I ordered this car on 11/8/04 and received it on 5/4/05. It was worth the long wait! This is the 4th GTO I've owned. My first was a 1969 400/4bbl auto, 2nd was a 1972 400/4bbl auto, and the 3rd was a 1966 389/tri-power 4-speed. The 66 was a sweet car but I think this 05 has won me over! The car is awesome." CLICK->

Impulse Blue 2005 GTO owned by G Mason from Sparta, Wisconsin. Mr. Mason tells us, "I love racing, but being a young guy, I never got to feel the glory of the muscle era. I was kinda in a rut with cars. I could get an older model, late 60's or early 70's, and spend oodles of money restoring it. Or I could snag some lil Honda, Saab, etc with lil V-6's and 'supe them up, but still have a rinky dink lil import (which also sucked considering I'm 6'5'). So thank God for the resurgence of the muscles! Not like their forefathers, but they've come a long way! I love my new GTO. I took it downtown La Crosse (big college city) and trampled every lil foreign that wanted to drag! Egads, I dig this car!" CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Larry Parks (deuceguy.@city-net.com) - "I have not had a car in 15 years and would like to get back into the game. I can't tell you how many cars used to just follow me home. However I've been out of this for a long time and times have changed."
