GTO Take Two

Well, here are the pics of my new (used) GTO. It is not flawless like I like my cars (has a bunch of road chips on the front), but the price was certainly right and it is very clean and straight otherwise. I may swap the 18's from my wrecked one on here if I can get them to clean up, we'll see.

Hey man. How'd you manage to ROLL it? It's not an SUV dude.

It was actually pretty easy apparently. Hit the embankment sideways at about 45 or so and that'll do the job .

One of the vehicles with the highest percentage of rollovers per 1000 units on the road is the Chevrolet Corvette. People drive them hard and accidents happen. When you get off the road into the soft stuff it is a matter of physics, you are going to roll. SUV's are suprisingly low on the rollover per 1000. Most people don't push them too hard so they tend to stay on the road.

Joe,
Hoping you didn't get hurt. The new GTO looks great.

Thanks bud, I am fine- not even a scratch. Just a couple minor surface "nicks" on my right arm from the flying glass. I am very lucky!

Yeah, I liked the car too much. I was torn because I wasn't sure if I should get a Vette or GTO last time around and now I had the chance to get a Vette again, but I think the GTO has the best bang for the buck I could find- especially for $20k for an 05. Also started thinking what could have happened if I wrecked a Vette instead of the GTO and the fact that this car held up so well was reason enough for me to feel confident in buying another one! I kicked around other cars also- 99-01 911 was my favorite, but not the most practical, test drove a new Stang also. I like the looks, the car had "ok" power, but I know what they are capable of, so stock performance wasn't an issue for me. The thing that doomed the Stang for me though was the door panels- couldn't get any cheaper looking and the fact that a stripper 07 GT was $26-$27k- not bad, but I know Fords resale and it just wasn't worth it compared to this car. Next year, it would be a one out of one billion mustang that is worth $14k. Screw that .

I joked about that a few times already. Funny though, I am such a fanatic with keeping my cars flawless, that I catch myself doing a double take like "what the hell is that, oh nevermind" when I see one of the scratches while walking through the garage hahah.
