1936 Auburn boattail speedster that won a Good Guys best car award. What a beautiful car. He picked pricey Vail CO over Northern CA. Wonder if that had something to do with the Petersen Museum decision. Not exactly classic car territory unless its a 69 Bronco and you like rock chips.

In the timeline of failed businesses from the 1929 stock market crash, it's amazing those luxo cars got produced.

It's also amazing that now failing companies DON'T fail, due to socialistic government policies using our money to "bail" them out. Alas, our Pontiac didn't suffer that fate.

I attended thr 2004 Chicago Auto Show. The contrast was night and day. Ford shot video in Detroit backstreets, racing original LeMans Cobra, Brand new GT, and a next gen. Mustang. The video was on a 70 foot screen behind these fabulous race cars. I can't freakin find Pontiac. Oh look, they hid it way back in the broom closet behind all the other GM brands. I find a person, adk where is the new GTO, just debuting? It's not even the first car, but they have one. The seats are awesome, the upholstery far better than my Firehawk, just 2 year earlier. It doesn't have the plastic everywhere. Sales can't tell me much. Pretty sad. Summary: GM was a trainwreck. Layers and layers of bloated leadership that needed a Covid virus to thin the herd. I ignored GM for my next several vehicles. Toyota produced durable long lasting cars with near zero cost of maintenance. That competition forced GM to build better. We chancdd a 2019 Volt. Great driver, love the handling. Its better than I expected out of GM. Technical is not perfect, but not forcing us to find a dealer or get towed, not once. The croed sround Ford was about 500. No room to get close to the 3 cars on rotatng turntables. GM, about 2 parties,checking over the GTO. Remainder of Pontiac was not worth mentioning. BUT the car- by Holden of Australia, was a phemonenal sleeper. You can't hit15,000 cars the debut year if you don't market!

Ford sold 150000 the same year. A Cobra in 2004 produced 390 Factory HP. The big thing was the ecotec engine debut with turbo. Ford halved a display engine for customer examination. Heads at Pontiac should have been canned for their token representation of a BMW challenger.

What did you claim about the ecotec engine?

corrrection. This is the SVT debut engine I saw the cutaway on. A V8 with supercharger.

2004 GTO offers 350 HP.. 2005 ups it to 400HP, the peak for the 3 year GTO. The weak factory rear is not improved upon. I have made it a point on my LS1 to not track thrash it, so as to maintain driveability. My one way is around 650 miles, no backup plan.

Ford began spending on real eye catching marketing. I am back in school, rather than suffer the great recession. Young classmates turn me onto gymkhana videos. Ken Block sells so many cars or at least dreams for the youth set. Still love this one, sunset ending.

While you're in school, get some learnin' about "confirmation bias". You'll find that people have a tendency to support their own conclusions by: ignoring contrary evidence and interpreting information to support that conclusion. That reminds me...whatchya think about all those videos that disprove your claims about the Rittenhouse shooting?? Why can't you see reality? That bias thing.....

Type "texas lawmakers on plane" into a Google search. Then, select "images". What do you see? I see.....HYPOCRITES. They are liars. They say they are Democrats, but they OPPOSE the rule of the majority. Mask-less on an airplane.

Oh, OK. That's great. What about commenting on your lies about me?

how about you get over yourself. MEMEME. so narcissistic. Dude, you picked a bad horse. Find a better one and quit your damn blaming.

Truth > liars. It's not about me, it's about lies. Why do you lie? Why do you do what you say Trump does? Lie, lie, lie.

The man you claim is "rational". The man who stumbled THREE times on one stair climb attempt. See this video....Biden is RETARDED.

The current retarded President nominated a man who says he's a woman, AND this person....who thinks children are....well, see the video. Trump wasn't THAT irrational.
