Junk? YMMV, I suppose. I love my GTO. I had the leaking strut problem and the rear wheel sag. Warranty took care of the first and Lovells took care of the second. So far no other problems that I didn't induce.
OP, GTOs had issues for sure, but that's new off the lot. Its a good bet that buying used many of those issues have been addressed. Make a list of the problems you've found and make sure they've been addressed. If not, consider if you want to put in the money, time and effort to correct them as they come along. And because this car was made in Australia and Pontiac is dead parts are not cheap off the shelf. You can come across good deals if you're patient though. IMHO, if you buy from a car from one of the board members at any GTO forum I'd do a search against the user name in the tech sections to gather history. If buying outside the boards, the closer to stock the better.
FYI. You can't post in the For Sale sections, but you can PM the sellers.
