Drove a '05 GTO

Okay, so the other day a buddy from work called me and asked if I could work him for a day, I wasn't working so I thought alright, what else to do. He was really thankful and said what can I give you, some quick cash or something? Now he just got a 2005 GTO a couple months ago, and I said why don't you just let me drive that, he was like alright we could do that sometime. So tonight after work I took her out for a spin. I wasnt too fond of the outside looks of them, but the interior was really nice, and you can't forget the uhh, 400hp LS2 engine. So he let me get on it, and all I can say is wow... it really impressed me, 'cause I really haven't driven too many V8s so it was nice for a change. Now it makes me want to get a V8 instead of a turbo for the focus... so we'll have to see what happens..

They really are a sweet driving car, too bad they're so bland looking (in my opinion). It's awfully tough to beat good old V8 torque.

There's one for sale at a local dealer, it's an '04 and they're asking 28k, I believe...yeah, I agree on the sorta bland looks, but you can't get away from that 400ponies...wowsers.

Hey haven't drove a new GTO, but my dad lets me take out his old one from time to time. Its a '66 with a Hurst 4 speed, he bought it new in 1965. It may not be as fast as the new ones...but looks and sounds twice as good

Hey my car may be really green, but dont make fun
because when your losing your mind and pushing the panic button,
because you cant find your conservative color car in the parking lot. Im going to laugh at you.
