 ;D Used to be heavy into drag racing in my Pontiac Trans Am 400 cu inch  v8. Just loved the competition from "the judge" (you can google that one.lol) 440 hemi I think. Still have a few old photo`s of the corvettes and an Opel with a 454 chevy  engine which did the 1/4 mile in 7-8 seconds. But then these modern pontiacs  lack the muscle of the good old days.
cheers

the 06 GTO is nice with 400hp as opposed to the 05 with only 350. however the styling is very controversial and as you may know they already discontinued this new generation.

I am a huge fan of the 2008 G8 that is coming out end in a few months. It has a 6.1 liter LS1 with close to 400hp.
pics of the beautiful G8:

The Grand Prix GXP is also kinda cool with a supercharged V6 with 300hp. I only drive manual though.

Nice one Syn, but does it have individual headers/collection box, traction bars,double Holly carb and a driver with a helmet on?(not that kind of helmet.lol) Be interesting to see specs on top speed and 1/4 mile. Me auld Trans Am hit off the clock on the Delaware turnpike(over the 160mph). Changed the rear end out (Zoom) to increase speed from A to B dropping top speed to 135mph. It had an automatic transmission with certain ball bearings missing lol. and would chirp the tyres in all gears under full throttle. Best on 1/4 was abt 13.0secs.
cheers

That sounds like a fast car. Although I do appreciate old muscle it's not really my style being a younger person.

I mostly like newer cars. My favorite generation of cars are the Japanese from the 90's before they started making only fuel efficient vehicles. The Mazda RX7, twin turbo Supra, and twin turbo 3000GT VR4 are just some of my favorites.

 ;D Dont forget I was also young once the 240-360ZX. Will see retirement soon and probably would enjoy being the owner of one of the old "Morgan sports cars" Nostalgic.

                                                                                                                                                                   But still prefer the older versions.
cheers

I always dreamed of buying a pontiac gto and recently found an inexpensive offer to sell this car. This is the first time I'm planning to buy a used car, I wouldn't give up tips that will help me avoid problems with buying a used car.

If you buy a used car in Western Australia, then I can advise you a good and inexpensive VIN checker in order to check the history of the car and not get into scam. With the help of such a check, you can find out how many owners this car had, whether there are any financial debts on this car and whether the police are looking for it. Here https://www.revscheckreport.com.au/services/revs-check-wa you can read more about this. I know that it's better to spend 2 minutes of time and get this information before buying than to hope for good luck and then have problems with the car or the police. I wish you good luck and hope you will be happy with your purchase!
