I had a '66 that was strange: I had it for about 11 years, and had 3 motors in it, etc., no matter what motor was in it at the time, it was always waay faster than my oter 4 GTO's (at that time I had 5!!). I started with a 400, then a '65 389, then a '66 389, etc. The car got the nickname "The Bomb", but this was early 80's, before the phrase became popular again (My dad called his '49 Olds 88 a Bomb back in '50). So, it was like the car was haunted. It ALWAYS won races, even when outmatched. It was a razor-straight Montero Red Hardtop with a black interior and a 4 speed. 355 gears. When I sold the car in 1991, It had a failrly mild '66 389 with a carter AFB on it. I swear it would still stomp my '65 with a hotter 389 and tripower. My current '67 convertible that I've had for 25 years also has it's own personality (Likes to vapor lock when waaaay out of town, or out of state), and My current '65, which I've had for 27 years, is stone reliable EXCEPT when it was my only running car, back in 1982, and I had a long commute to work: I almost broke up with my girlfriend because EVERY weekend I was rebuilding something on the car. They're all different, and they DO have personalities. One thing learned over many years: threat them with RESPECT and they'll respect you!!!

I'm not sure if the car has a personality or if it's the 35 years or so taken off my age every time I drive my '67 goat. It's probably the latter according to my girl friend, who tries, but still doesn't "get it" with these classics.

okay okay guys, I know I'm pretty new to this GTO thing although I've been into them for years, but I definitely agree that they have personality. I "bonded" with my car as soon as I drove it. Now, it seems that it's just sitting there saying, "thank you, thank you!"

I know mine has a personality....
When ever I get in and start her up..... she purrrrrrrrs.
When I want her to move she screams.
She lets me know when she's thirsty.
She lets me know when she wants cleaned.
If I neglect to donate her life's blood for recycling, she will let me know when to do a transfusion.
When she's feeling weak she will let me know she needs a charge.
She lets me drive her but she calls the shots....

Mine ironically has the same personality as my wife.
1. If I treat them bad, they treat me "REALLY BAD" in return, so I learn my lesson.
2. They both seem to deprive my wallet of any extra $$$ on practically a daily basis.
