Do you even know the history behind the GTO.... when it was first produced it was a "Grocery Getter" with a huge engine. It was not a sports car. It was a plain jane no thrills go fast in a straight line. not a sports car. AKA "Muscle Car" The mustang was a "Pony Car" Carol Shelby made it a "Muscle Car" With the GT series. Ya know GT350, Gt500, GT500KR. So Ford Cashed in on Carols idea. The BOSS mustang was FORD, as was The Mach1 Mustang. The mustang was a cheap piece of garbage to compete with chevy's corvete. By putting in a 289 cid in a light weight F-Body. then came the pontic firebird and camero to chalenge the cheap mustang. mustang had nothing to do with muscle cars till after the GREAT CAROL SHELBY. and the Dodge Charger was created AFTER the GTO. I Really Love the GTO 1: its stylish, not to flashy, like the original GTO. 2: it kicks BMW's rear for the fact its 20g's cheaper then the M3 series or M5. It was produced to go after the Eropean models NOT ford or Dodge. it was produced for BMW, Mercedz, Volvo, even the low end Ferrais. The Charger is a Sell out. 1: its a FOUR DOOR. a REAL Charger is a 2 door. The GTO is Perfect get in sit down shut up and hang ON!.
