Wow! I just saw a GTO commercial!

I have never seen a commercial with a GTO in it before. I was watching the NASCAR Qualifying on the speed channel and I saw it! It still wasn't a commercial with JUST the GTO though, it also had the Grand Prix GTP. If I was Pontiac's ad department, I think I'd want that advertised.

Back in 04' when the first one came out there was a commercial for it. A few actually, they were just hype commercials, then one where it was waiting at a red light, idling, a couple talking about it's motor, RWD, and dual exhaust...

As far as the 05, yeah just that one.

I guess I don't remember the older ones. It's such a great car, it just seems to me that GM would want to get the word out there just how awesome they ARE!

I did a search a while back and have all the commercials. If you can't find them PM me and I'll send it to you.

I cant understand how GM took no initiative to advertise this car on a steady basis. Then it gets discontinued. What did they expect ? Why would production be continued when sales were in the toilet for this model compared to the other vehicles that are advertised.....sorry, I'm ranting again.

ssshhhh


it's a limited edition and I don't own mine yet!!!


gimme a couple months then we can complain.


I guess in a way it's good they didn't advertise it because now we own sleepers. Most people don't even know there is a new GTO out there and just think... hey, they made the grand am a 2 door...

LS1 forum has all of them including the Engine commercial, Car comm (building), Yellow GTO on salt flats and one or two more. All are narrated by Samual L. Jackson.
