Well, i finally went to get my hair cut today and thought I'd take the ole goat out to stretch her legs a little being it was such a beautiful day.

General conversation with my hair dresser(female) about the GTO she said that another customer of hers has a black GTO. I asked her where was he from due to not seeing any goats in my area except for me and my mailman. She told me he was originally from pedricktown and now has moved to Pennsville NJ and that he was talking about having a new exhaust system put on his car which the hair dresser claimed was pretty loud. MMMM?

The other hairdresser then asked me if i was in Pennsville the day before today. i told her no and she said a GTO like mine was driving through town as well...MMMMMMMMMM?

So, after cutting the lawn and gettin cleaned up the wife came home with the kids from shopping. My mother came and picked up my daughter to go to a nursing home to visit my grandmother which left me, the wife, and in two days my 10 month old son. So she asked to go out to the local custard stand and grab some dinner. I told her to order it and i would throw the car seat, car seat protector in the GTO.

So, we head out Rt.#49 and My wife yells look!!! Turning off of Rt#45 onto Rt.#49 was an 05 or 06 Torrid Red GTO. From what I could tell from three cars ahead of me it did not have tinted window, nothing on the GTO rear fascia inserts, and it had regular Jersey plates. Never did catch up to it for it headed east on Rt.#49 towards Bridgeton Cumberland County. My local family kinda owned Pontiac dealership is on the same highway so I thought we'd put thru there while waiting for our food order and one of the salesman who knows me said. I thought I had blurred vision, did you see that red gto in front of you. That is how rare GTO's are seen in my area. The owner of the dealership saw me pull in and came out and asked me if I had any luck selling the GTO becasue he knew of my situation. My wife speaks up and says, "he is not selling this car!".

Sorry for the not so interesting story, but it was the high light of my day.

Actually once in my life time I thought about getting a ford. It was a 2004 Mach 1. I opted for the 2004 Grand Prix GTP instead for the gadgets, HUD, Supercharger, Tap Shift, Sun roof, four doors, etc. I agree, in the next town over Pennsville Twp. That is all you see young spoiled high school kids driving around in mustangs.. Ya ever see the movie " The OutSiders" ? " Mustangs are tough Pony boy"

Hmm.... hearing that I guess its not TOO rare to see them around here. I was on my way home from class yesterday, its a long stretch of straight road, and I knew in the area there is a QSM 05-06 GTO usually by a bar in the corner... but I havent seen him in over 2 weeks or so. So as I'm passing throught the bar.. no GTO parked there. I keep going and this 350z is trying to chase me down to race me, I slow down and he flies by (I hate that) so I dont even bother chasing him but I'm doing a little over 40 mph. THEN I see it! In the gas station to the right is the GTO with the owner filling it up. It was like slow motion I turned my head all the way to check for any kind of exterior mods.. and he gave me a thumbs up! ... I figure it would seem strange for me to turn back around and start conversation with the guy about his car, so I just kept going.

Ehhh? If the timing is right I'd probally stop. As long as the station was like really packed with cars... Heck I pulled over someone in a GTO in the cop car to ask him a question about something on his car..Now that is funny!!!!!!!!:lol: It turned out to be an employee of the local dealership who was taking it in for service for his dad who lives down by the sure in Cape May.:willy:

Question – What would you have done if he was intoxicated, or you suspected he was, or if you saw a firearm at his side. How would you justify the encounter based on the reason for the stop?

Not trying to bust you, just a ?

YA think? hmmmmmm I dunno... I heard on the news there was a Police Dept in New Jersey who admitted to duck taping a fellow officer to an overpass bridge for getting the whole department caught up in a betting scam over the selling of a performance car. :eek:

Could be an omen Chris....Either the guy upstairs is telling you to sell it because all the sudden GTO's are coming out of the woodwork or he's telling you to keep it cause you will be the only one who won't have one.

Personally, I think he wants you to unload your gauge pod.

This is all too, too funny...... You state there are NO other GTO's in the area.... you put yours up for sale and since then every color of GTO under the rainbow is blowing by you. ROFLMAOOOOO :confused:confused
