Yes yes, we test drove the poorly reviewed GTO.
I know a lot of you are wondering, why the hell would you do that? Well, a few reasons.
First, 98monte is looking for a new car, he wants to trade his POS Monte Carlo for something better. Secondly, a Pontiac AD on TV brought up a few good points about why a GTO would be better than a Charger. And 98Monte has been looking at getting a Hemi-Charger. The Charger is more expensive, and slower than a GTO. The GTOs have 400hp/400tq and they are cheaper.
So I told this to him and he's like "Well, might as well check them out"
So we went to the dealership and asked the guy working there about the GTO's and if they had the same or more trunk space as the Charger. He gave me a frown and said "Well, you're going to be disappointed.." he opened the trunk, and Oh Good LORD there's like no room back there!
So that was a let down.. we were thinking about leaving, but I asked the guy if we could go for a test drive, he was more than happy to get us the keys.
He even told us to punch it once we got out of the dealership.
Let me just say. Holy ****
This thing roars when you rev it, it snarls and leaps forward when you punch it, and it sits comfortably!
Except for maybe tall people in the back seats, but short people will find it kinda nice back there. The front seats were perfect, they fit me like a glove. I was quite surprised with the GTO, I won't be thinking it's such a horrible car anymore.
