I've been up in Oklahoma City for this week completing my last tour of USAF Reserve Duty. I've seen more GTOs in any given day than I've seen in Fort Worth since the GTO was introduced. I'm finding I'm parking next to them, I pull up next to them at stop lights. The least I've seen is 3 and that was today. They have all been 05s but one. I haven't seen any on the dealer lots. Parked next to a 60+ year old today with a Red GTO with the temp tag still on it. He loved his new Goat and traded in his Cadillac for it - Wow! I also found a salvage yard with 8 of the GTOs damaged in that train derailment a couple of months ago. That's another story that I tell when I get home and can post some pictures.

Where exactly do you live in Ft. Worth?

Personally if you guys want your goats to seem unique, move here to Orlando. It's an extremely rare occasion if I even see one other GTO in a month's time. The only other time I do see a GTO on the road is if I'm near my friend who recently got a used 04, otherwise they're few and far between.

Yer...I'm seeing more and more on my commute.

Saw a guy on the 210 the other day iin an '04 Cosmos Purple...I came along his right side for a wave...nothin.' The bozo just stared straight ahead. So, I fell behind for a few minutes, and, thinking he just didn't see an obnoxious-yellow GTO alongside, tried on the left side. Nothin'. He just stared straight ahead.

Too good to wave or give thumbs up? Screw you. Some people don't deserve these cars.

I blinked my headlights at a guy in a black 04 yesterday and he gave me a thumbs up. Its like when I used to ride motorcycles.

Same thing happened to me, except when I came up the second time he tried to race me and I got in it and stomped the living hell out of his car!! Now, not only is he an ass he also has a slower car..... some people :rolleyes:

I thought they only made v6 mustangs :rofl:

Well...they are technically eight-cylinder engines, but only six are actually working to power the car.

The other two cylinders have hoses running to the cabin and up the driver's seat to keep the driver's ego from deflating.

Fact.

You are exactly right. I have had the car for almost 4 months and I have only seen 2 others.
