There's no set answer for your question, look at the various years, poke around on the forums, go to some car shows and then decide which year or years you are interested in.

Learn first...then buy.

Just my 2 cents.

New era (2004-2006) are quite different machines in appearance and performance. As koppster said, look around on the internet and at shows to see what you like.

Good advice..........decide which year you are most attracted to and then concentrate on finding the best deal for your buck. Now is a very good time to find deals with more people needing to sell toys to eat. There are many nice drivers in the price range you posted.....

I have to give some representation to the 1968. I feel the love, I think you should too!

Good advice from the guys before me, spend some time deciding what you want, then buy. Or get a couple of lemans clones and you can have one of each style at your price point

Purists like me prefer the old, 389 tri-power 4 speed cars. They're light, a little rough around the edges, and have brutal accelleration. The fact is, the later cars are better road cars, 'cuz they're newer and more advanced. The '67-up 400 engine has much better heads than the old 389, and the 455 is a torque monster that's hard to beat. I've always owned '65, '66, '67 GTO's....I've never had a newer one. I have driven '68-ups, though, when I was a mechanic for a large company. The '68-'72 GTO's are excellent road cars...tight, quiet, well constructed, and they have great brakes and road manners. They are an improvement over the earlier cars. They scream "SIXTIES PERFORMANCE!" I may get one someday.....But I still like the style of the '67-on- back ones.......
