"This '04 GTO was built on 29 September 2003 -- #243 produced!! I have provenance from GM so recognizing, and I've had her in my "stable" since about 9,000 miles. She's presently 46,000 miles old.
All told, I own seven (7) distinctly different rides from "Muscle Cars" like the '64 GTO and '70 Dodge Challenger to late model speed like a 2006 Dodge Charger now sporting a 6-speed Keisler manual transmission. I've bought and sold dozens of other rides along the way to today's "Magnificent Seven". While I'm sure someone out there has a ride that beats it, nothing stock I've ever owned compares to this '04 GTO, a.k.a., "little black rocket".
Come out and see her run sometime at the Muncie Dragway!!"
"A Cadillac quality built car with a 350 hp fully Corvette tuned LS1, the 1st time a Corvette motor has been used in anything else.
Add a 6 spd manual trans and and independant rear suspension like a Vette or Jaguar uses, 4 wheel discs. The car is as docile as any other car in normal day driving, however step into the throttle and a beast unleashes and every car around you falls back , the sounds are intoxicating still, the power is addictive! I love getting on the freeway and flooring it through the 1st 2 gears and into 3rd before I cruise and set to 6th at 80 and at 2k rpms! getting 27 mpg!
Or turn off the traction control and drive it like you stole it and get 9 mpg!
I get compliments every day on it."
"As far as reliability goes, these cars have a few well known issues that are common among them and parts are not cheap. I would not recommend this as a daily driver car. However, it is a very fun car to drive and it is fast. The the horsepower per dollar value of this car is definitely among the best, if not the best, of any other car."
"Currently own a 2006. Previously owned a 2004. These cars are fun to drive and have lots of power. The interior is great. If you take good care of them, these cars will treat you well. The LS engines are amazing."
