    Hope it works, sure looks sweet from the perspective a former '69 Judge owner. Timing to release to market; however, couldn't be worse

            save for the bigger nostrils, foglamps and wheel/tire combo, I see nothing new.

            With all due respect to Jim Wangers, I'm siding with Matt King on this one....where the hell was Wangers with the NEW GTO?!

              Chris, we can rule out toupee shopping for his whereabouts, I think he's been rocking his current piece of a decade or two.

              Matt...ex-frigging-actly.

                  Tired of these type of cars, the lamest was the Mr. Norms darts and after the big price tag you get a cars that others have.

                    I've seen the car, what's the problem with it? Big motor, big brakes, big rolling stock, bright orange paint. Someone here don't like Pontiacs? ???

                      I saw the car in person and if you look at the SEMA gallery, I mention that I dig it!

                      The car looks 150% better than the renderings. Way more tasteful and far less exaggerated with the wheels than I expected.

                      I grew up sitting in a car seat in the back of a 1964 GTO. Pontiacs are certainly not hated.

                        Gotta agree.

                        This is just about as lame as all the "Mr. Norm's" Crap that's been popping up lately.

                          I think I'm over the whole "make my car perform like a new car" pro-touring movement..... Last summer, the goodguys held an event where the best of the best old stuff would have really been 4th overall (64 Pontiac) compared to some mostly stock new stuff seems like a huge wasted effort..... IMO working 10x as hard to build an old car, spending 4x the money and getting blasted by some second hand c4 vette just takes the wind out of the pro-touring sails. and to foresee an argument - the 32 fiberglass florida roadster featured in Hot rod is a new car.

                              So if you don't want one don't buy one. Rich guys will if it gets them revved up about the good ol' days. What is wrong with that?
