I gotta tell you - the '04 GTO was THE sleeper hot rod - that was a GOOD car.

I actually would consider getting one as a toy...I still have a great pic of one that I drool over and use as a wallpaper from time to time.

It's worth stepping up the '05-'06 though. The brakes were better, and the LS2 got another 50Hp right out of the box.

I still miss mine, especially on long trips. They really are a great GT car. Big comfy seats that you can live with for hours and hours, the engine is just loping along at highway speeds, and the instruments were great for a car in that price range. The lighting was easy on the eyes, and everything was very clear and easy to read. The trip computer had multiple trip counters, or you could set it up with miles to destination, and it had this cool little rest reminder that would pop up every two hours (you could set it for whatever you wanted) with a picinic table under a shade tree.

Not that I regret the 135i or anything, but I wish I could have both.
