Hi @ all,

first of all please let me introduce myself.

My name is Florian, I'm German, 28 years old, and living in Wuerzburg, Germany.
I want to buy a 2005/06 GTO this summer because I really like this pure V8 power and the growling sound of his engine.
I discovered this forum awhile ago during my seek of informationís around the GTO and I was very surprised of the huge amount of knowledge and informationís and also about the nice and friendly relationship between the users in here.
Iím really looking forward to have a huge exchange of knowledge with you guys and that I can present my GTO this summer to you.
Have a nice day all.

Cya,

Flo

P.S.

I added a pic of my actual ride. It's an Opel (part of the GM group) Calibra Turbo, Keke Rosberg Edition in black.
He has a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder in-line engine with a turbocharger which produces 204 stock HP and delivers his power to all four wheels. I modded it a lil bit with a Downpipe and things like that and now he has around 240 HP. In my eyes it looks a lil bit like the GTO. Maybe that's the reason I want to buy the GTO as his successor.
I would really appreciate it if you would give me a short input how you like my ride.

Also, there's another member that bought his daughter a Spice Red GTO in Germany. I can't remember his screen name, but he had the GTO and a Cadillac CTS V I think.

Find his daughter, get married, instant GTO

Know it very well. I did try to join the site for the pictures, but even when I could talk my way into a club reading was still a challenge
