As long as this post has been here I never noticed the spelling. WTF is a "Mutsnag"? 8O

I believe the s and t are transposed, mustnag= significant other ( female )

I think the same thing

I think the samething. All they did was take a Grand Am put the Corvette engine in it change the body a little bit and slap on the GTO name. Personaly it makes GTO look bad.

Heres a real GTO

Please read this post about 12 up. The same goes for you.

No, wait a minute. It's not a Grand Am at all, it's a repackaged Holden Monaro from our friends in Australia.

In the future please ensure you are at least close to the facts before hitting submit.

Yes its a aluminum 5.7 liter V8 because they put Corvette's LS1 engine in it.
And ok its Rwd as the Grand Am is Fwd ok so they put a new drive train in it still I bet you there are a lot of parts from the Grand AM and Grand Prix in the new GTO. Pluse I bet you they put other parts from the Corvette in it aswell all just to save money.

You have to kidding, right? Nobody is really that thickheaded.

Oh, that really hurts. Instead of talking about me, why don't you stick to the subject which is... The Grand Am and GTO have essentially nothing in common except the name Pontiac.

no its simply him telling the facts....and if you actually read the facts you would know how dead wrong you are. almost all the GTO parts are original, not copied from the Corvette or anything. that's why the interior is so unique.

Dude, what do you think the original GTO was? It was a grocery-getting family car, with a big engine. The original GTO was never meant to be a performance car and even C&D proved that. Infact, C&D hated the car because GM just used the basic Monaro platform. I'm sorry, but vwhobo does know what he's talking about. The GTO was NEVER about performance, but people eventually turned them into performance cars because they had a strong engine.

Damn, I'm sorry I know what I'm talking about too. From reading your few posts so far, I'm gonna say you look like you've done more than read "Import Tuner" magazine to learn about cars.

I do have to correct you on one point. When the GTO first came out it was all about performance. That's exactly why they took a stripper grocery getter and put a monster (for the time) engine in it.

What was it based off of when they first came out? Le Mans or the Catalina? There might've been something else too.

You know, the main magazines I read are Import Tuner and C&D.

I don't know where I got that the GTO wasn't performance. I might have read something about the Tempest and stuck it with the GTO. The Tempest was the grocery-getter, the GTO was a Tempest with a bigger engine. Damn, I don't know where I got that from.
