Why so many haters?
So, whats everyone's problem with the new era GTO? I see so many people/kids trash talking the GTO because its made in Australia, and not a true PMD product, or that it doesn't look retro, or whatever BS line of thinking you can come up with.
IMHO, I think these trendy retro cars are for posers... guys who want the look, but not the hassle of a classic machine. Sure, the modern powerplants are superb, but wheres the craftsmanship? Why are some old names going retro, and others aren't? Wheres the retro Malibu, Impala, and, most especially, the Corvette (no Stingray?)? Nobody complains about them.
All of this negative talk, but nobody wants to step to the Goat on the streets. I've had the car for almost a month now, and drive it at least every other day - even though its not my DD - yet no one wants to challenge. I nail it, and people sit there, breathing through their mouths with a stupid look on their face. So are there actual valid points to everyone's complaints and pissing & moaning, or is everyone just a bunch of trash talking armchair racers?
