Personal Favorite GTO review

http://videos.streetfire.net/search/...a400b22471.htm

Left hand drive version

One interesting fact is that in aus. the car made 382 BHP its first year.. only went up 12 in the second gen... Our restrictions must be crazy compaired to everyone else.

wouldnt all the sand kick up in the engine bay and screw up some of the insides? I cant imagine that sand on a fan belt, etc could be too good...Or sand in the struts, brake calipers, etc.

Yeah, testing on sand really brings out the great handling attributes........

Even though that was a favorable review of a car we love, I can't take Top Gear very seriously. But that's just me.

I take the show seriously, only a few times have I really disagreed with clarkson.. example the CTS-V he said it felt "cheap" which is totally wrong after being in 1 myself its the only car I'd rather have then a GTO.

Well, maybe I'm being a little bit too critical, but how important is a vehicle's ability to hang the tail out in sand? They tested the Monaro against the 300C and S-Type Jag.......? If you haven't seen it, check out the review of the C6 Vette. They do seem to love the Viper and Ford GT though.
