|A muscle car legend is reintroduced to the
media as General Motors' Vice Chairman Bob Lutz reveals the 2004 Pontiac
GTO at the Los Angeles Auto Show January 3, 2003
Los Angeles - Giving the public its first look at the re-birth of a legend, Pontiac, General Motors' "excitement division," introduced show car versions of the 2004 GTO to audiences at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The production version of the GTO will be available in Pontiac showrooms in late 2003.
"The public's interest in the GTO has been everything we hoped it would be, and more," said Bob Lutz, GM vice chairman of production development. "This car is a strong statement from both Pontiac and GM that we are determined to re-energize the car market with vehicles that command the customer's attention and excite their senses."
Pontiac plays an especially large role in that strategy in the 2004 model year with three new product launches. The new Grand Prix debuts in the spring and the V8-powered Bonneville GXP will bow in early 2004.

Says Jace T Venable (fickstigure.@militarynow.com) - "I'm 25 and was born well after the GTO days but when Dazed and Confused came out I fell in love with the 1970 Judge. There's something really neat about older Detroit Muscle that will always be immortal. I'm scoping for a Goat and hope to add one to our collection."
