Any new GTO owners out there who live in Minnesota?

Yes. I bought a new '05 about a month and a half ago. I live SW of the twin cities, but work in Eden Prairie.

How do you like it so far?

I've got a 2004 and it is by far the best car I've ever had, and at 55 I've had a few. My firt car was a 64 GTO bought in 1968 while in High School

So far, I love it! I haven't driven it too much, since I try to only drive it on nicer days, and I was also out of the country for a couple of weeks.
The only thing I don't like is the mileage... It costs me as much to drive it to work one day as it costs me to drive my other car to work all week, (VW TDI, 50mpg!). Oh well, that is what I expected though when I bought it. I didn't buy it to commute 90 miles each day.
What part of the twin cities are you from?

Crystal, a little NW of downtown Mpls. Ninety miles is a LONG commute. Where do you live and how come so far away. At least with the GTO it's a fun 90 miles. I can see the gas would be a killer and I'm sure the VW would be my daily work vehicle. I was actually pleasantly surrised at the mileage, about 21 on the highway and since I'm only 18 miles away it's no big deal.
