I finally Pontiac GTO today....a 2006....I'm so F'n excited!!! Although it is a different generation of the small block than in my 04 GMC Sierra Denali, I think it is really cool that I have another 6.0L in the car hole (as Homer Simpson would call it).

I got it with the "Red Tag" sale, which was around $500 above invoice, so I gladly paid it (because it just came out) and peeled out of the lot. Well, I didn't exactly peel out of the lot.... It had 7 miles on it when I took it around the block to make sure that nothing was obviously messed up and I'm so glad some other punk didn't have a chance to....you know. I'm taking it easy until I get 500 or so miles on it to break it in properly, and then I'm going to leave rubber all over the county!!!

Congratulation but you gota give us more than that. Color Auto or 6sp Interior Color 17” or 18”? Most important does your car have the Door Lock/Unlock Switch in Console?
That sounds like good deal I can’t find 06 around here (Tampa bay area). Best deal on 05 Impulse Blue Auto Blue Int. 17’ around 30K and that ain’t low enough for second GTO for me anyway.

I always break my cars in by driving them hard! ALWAYS! Usually I do a nice smoky burnout leaving the dealership. Its a little trademark of mine......

Congratulations on the new car. Color.....transmission....come on man. don't leave us hanging.


Holden - Quick ride to jacksonville and you can see two of em. LOL!!!!


The 06's are nice. I sold one last night to a 23 year old. His first HP car. He drove an Avenger before this. Man oh man what a change for him. He was looking at the 05's but after I told him the benefits of the 06 and only at a 2000 more expensive version he decided to take my Cyclone Gray on home.

The lock and unlock button is really convenient. I know it sounds stupid, but I kinda want to trade because of that one thing.

Impluse blue, Auto, 17", and yes it has the console mounted door lock/unlock
Ideally, I wanted the blue interior, but I couldn't pass up the deal.
And the stock wheels will be changed out for 18"ers with summer only tires soon. The stock 17"ers will be powded coated black to run in the winter months or when the tires of the 18"ers need replacing.

Thanks! And by the welcome, I'm assuming that you're welcoming me to the GTO family and not to gtoforum.com ....because I've been here a while. I don't post a lot, but I read quite a bit.

And on the break-in business... I'm breaking it in somewhere in the middle of what the manufacturer recomends and what Xman posted. I just hit 200 miles. I haven't shoved the pedal all the way to the floor yet or gone past 5000 rpm, but I've given it a few kinda-hard launches. I've also let it slow from 80 mph to 30 or so without braking.
