it was silver. not stock. sounded awesome! and manual. I don't know what was really going on with it but, in my opinion, it was a nice car. I've never liked the newer GTO's but whatever this guy did, he did it right... except try to race.

long, wide country road with a couple redundant stop lights before getting into town. we were at the first one... he revved! whaat? I look over, behind and all around. no one but us, haha, okay, i'll go...

he had me off the line for a split second and that was all... I could still see him pulling after I had two car lengths on him. needless to say, and surprisingly, he had a big thumbs-up for me when we stopped at the next light. I had a smile and nod for him... done.

I also chased a C5 Corvette on some back roads. The look on his face was priceless when he couldn't leave me :lol: he even waved me along for more after a stop sign and seeing my turn signal. through gesture, I respectfully declined.

Was it a 5.7 or 6.0? 50 hp difference so nothing too crazy. Those cars can be made fast really easily but they are big fat pigs!

If it had the hood scoops and the rear bumper that says GTO on it, then it was probably a 6.0.

^ ha, thanks man. yeah, I'd say 1/4 mile would be a safe bet. Honestly, I don't think he would have made much of a come back. I'd like to give him the benefit of doubt but he was giving it everything he had and I was still putting distance between us...
our cars with boost are insane!
