"2004 Pontiac GTO Coupe�
The Pontiac GTO became known as ""The Goat"" due to an interpretation of the letters that make up its name.� Figuratively speaking, the car's ""defiant, stripped-to-the-basics personality"" also had a hand in cementing the moniker, according to Edmunds.com.� It is speculated that the acronym GTO, which stands for Gran Turismo Omologato, was taken from the Ferrari 250 GTO.� American consumers have a history of shortening the names of cars with multiple syllables, and this likely influenced the nickname of this Pontiac brand.� ""The Goat"" is catchy, easy to remember and was essentially born out of convenience.
This version 2 reboot of the GTO is powered by GM's LS1 V8 making 350hp. �Any newer Pontiac GTO will simply embarrass nearly any old Goat you could name.� Ahhhh technology.
This new version styling, (called Holden/ Euro), means that each unit from every company essentially takes on the same traits, and this ubiquitous example plays along exactly with the game.� With no reference to the past conquests, we can see integrated headlights, front bumper and lower fog lights are aerodynamically inserted and smoothed over.� A slight reference to Pontiac in form, is the split front drilled hole grille in black with the arrowhead badge.� �All panels are bathed in Barbados Blue Metallic and it's electric, (on the visual, it's actually an internal combustion engine!).� A flared rocker panel moves rearward to a greenhouse long sloping rear glass that ends with a rear spoiler.� More integrated tail lights rear bumper and finally a body matching neoprene rounded rear bumper and� small roll pan with a GTO logo flanked by dual zoom tube chrome tipped exhaust that exit on the driver's side.� 18-inch black anodized Enkei wheels on all 4 corners and all black trimmings around lightly tinted windows keep it simple.
Fashioned from curved charcoal gray molded vinyl and a strip of gray suede, the door panels are as aerodynamic as the exterior.� High back extra bolster support buckets in charcoal gray, have an embroidered GTO in their uppers.� These seats are power adjustable. The driver's seat bolster shows some folding and creases in the leather.� �In back is a 2 plus 2 bench setup, stretching from B pillar to B pillar.� In the center is a curved molded console that makes its way gracefully upward and melting into the dash.� On its way is an aftermarket AM/FM/CD radio, in full living color screen readout for information, and bluetooth capabilities. �The fan and temp knobs are just above this display.� The dash borrows styling directly from Porsche with the overlapping circle gauges, steel blue faced with white numbers and letters and satin bezels in a black field.� This is all on display under a curved dash top visor.� Black carpet dances with embroidered GTO floor mats and molded panels covered with slightly fuzzy gray colored material for the headliner.
Stuffed under the solid curved hood is a living breathing 5.7 Liter LS1 V8 engine.� It is in very good condition as is the entire engine bay with no corrosion or rust, all original.� EFI feeds it.� 4L60E 4-speed automatic and a 3.46 limited slip rear finish up the drivetrain.� Did I mention it puts out a serious 350 horses?
Up on the lift some slight dusting of road dirt and overspray from the factory is all that I could find wrong, and is that really wrong??!� Totally structurally sound with the unibody construction.� All independent suspension, and all power disc brakes, all around for this car.� A shiny SLP� with electric cutout exhaust is now installed and snaking its way rearward..lets make some noise!
As expected this car fired right up, and performed like a 350hp car should on the test track.� Seat pushing acceleration, rail like handling, and quick stopping were the norm.� All functions were performing as they should, and it is a smooth highway cruiser with low noise factor.
A nice fairly low actual mileage, (41,466), example of the new version of the GTO even though someone would have to tell me it's a GTO if the badges were not there.� Holden/Euro styling has taken over, and now we have an aero car with a big mill.� Which in the entire picture is not too bad!� And it's a little throwback to the early GTO muscle that roamed the streets of the past.
