    The POS 2004 version from Holden (JMO) probably killed this car ... and the future for Pontiac. I would have loved to see a new model more closely based on the original styling.

    The movie was funny as hell imo, but the car was the best part.

    Sweet car for sure. As a warning about the movie though, if you are thinking about seeing it, watch the regular version first. The unrated version tells you that watching it first will ruin the movie and they are very correct. The regular one is very funny though.

    When I was in high school I took VO ED Machine Shop. 3 of us had big block muscle cars, I had a 70 Chevelle SS 454, another guy had The Judge and the other one had a 69 SS Camero 427.

    We were the kings a short time.

    Thanks for the post that brought back memories.

    I'm driving a 2005 6.0 GTO and while I'd rather own a vintage one, the Holden will hold it's own with any stock classic GTO. I doubt very seriously that car brought GM to it's knees.

    You may very well be right, Noel, at least from a mechanical and performance point of view, but for me, the Holden GTO styling is bland and nondescript, whereas the original GTO styling is a classic in every sense of the word IMO, and exciting too.

    Then again, even though I love the original styling from these cars, and a few others from the same generation, I would never actually go out and buy one. We just don't have the need. The three vehicles we own already each serve their purpose admirably, and none would ever be swapped for a vehicle such as the GTO, improved modern day styling or not. Maybe there really was no way to save brands such as Pontiac. The damage may have been done during the last three decades of the twentieth century when American automobile brands seem to loose their identity, but it's JMO. They've been attempting revivals lately, but it may well prove to be too little, too late for many. Who knows what history will record concerning the decline of the American automobile, but that the last GTO had to be an Australian creation surely says a lot.

    The thing is though, the original GTO's were just that. A bland dime a dozen family car, at least appearance wise. They're associated as being a muscle car, because they built a reputation for themselves. The original GTO's were created from employees stuffing the biggest engine they could squeeze into the Tempest(?) body.

    Personally, I love the styling of the new GTO's. It's refreshing in todays world of having 40 non-functional air intakes all over the body, 18 non-functional scoops on the hood and a non-functional 3 foot tall wing. The new GTO's don't stick out like a sore thumb, which isn't always a bad thing.

    Also, they're faster than hell.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Katarina Bowden was the best part of Sex Drive by a mile.

    I owned about 7 GTO's back in the 80's. At one point I had 3 in the driveway.... a 1971 with a 455 HO with a blower, a 1971 with a 400 and a 1972 with a 455. I also owned a 1970 Judge. Yes, I am kicking my ass for having sold them.

    The GTO is considered to be THE FIRST muscle car when you talk a "muscle car purist".

    Ie: Strict Definition of a Muscle Car: A muscle car, by the strictest definition, is an intermediate sized, performance oriented model, powered by a large V8 engine, at an affordable price.

    Before the GTO, big block engines were only available in full size bodies. The reason it is in a plain intermediate body was to get it past the GM "no racing" decree from 1963. Chief engineer John Z. DeLorean, general manager Eliot M. “Pete” Estes, engineer Russ Gee, engineer William Collins, marketing manager Jim Wangers and the previous general manager Semon E.“Bunkie” Knudsen are best known as the individuals responsible for the Pontiac GTO. They decided that they could basically create a "factory hot rod" that could be purchased by any individual and take directly to the track. They would get the racing pub without factory sponsorship. They could not make a big deal out of it without making the GM bosses mad, so they quietly made it an option package for the 1964 Tempest. In fact there was little or no advertising about the package, just a box that could be check on the order form. The GTO package wasn't mentioned in the 1964 Pontiac full-line catalog. There wasn't a GTO brochure until the middle of the model year. It sold by word of mouth and by props from the auto mags like the famous Car and Driver March 1964 Pontiac GTO vs Ferrari GTO duel.

    It was still just a Tempest option in 1965 and became a stand alone model in 1966.

    I would say that it should reamin unchanged. It is not like they just stopped making this engine.
