Identify Giant HOLE in 05 GTO??

Can anyone tell me the reason for the giant hole in the trunklid behind the lic plate area?

Looks like its begging to collect water.

Example:



Any idea why its there? Is there a stock plug or cover for it?

Yeah, its on mine too. I talked to a guy named Jeff who had the same thing on his. I'm sure its on all of em. I've been without a tag (temp) for 2 weeks now, no water in it so far.

That part of the trunklid is just a filler plate,,some of the Holdens have the lights running all the way across instead of having the painted center section.

I'm not worried about the hole. What bugged me on my car is that those little foam pads to cushion the license plate were missing. I figure they must've stuck to the dealer plate at some point and gotten torn away. Now I finally see what the little pads look like.

I'am kinda glad it's there, I had to drill thru the inner portion of the trunk to run the wires for the ZR3 sensor. It may be a vent for the trunk.
