Yeah I recently looked at getting a 2005 Black GTO and told the dealer my grilles would need to be put in the car and they said okay. ....untill i saw the monthly payments.

On the list is some suspension, headers(coming sooner than I originally expected..) and a cam.

Been 2 months with the headers and catless mid pipes and it NOW throws the code haha.

Possibly trading in the GTO on a Corvette, if I can get the payments down to what I am doing now.

Pontiac GTO is an awesome Aussie ride converted to be an American. I don't like the yellow color though. I would prefer red or black. The G8 is nice too, but does it add any costs expenses because they're imported into the U.S.A from Australia? Pontiac is an American brand though even some of the cars are Australian made.

GTR

But the engine is American. I'd assume they're built in America as well. So probably the only thing about GTO that is Australian is it's incredible design.

Honestly, no idea.

I need to get rid of this, and some other debt before I can do anything.

Looking at 03 GTIs.

Although if I had a job still, and the trade in value of these cars was still High...I found an E46 M3 in Leguna Seca Blue for 19k.

Would you consider selling the LS1 on its own? Or do you want to sell the car as a whole only?

GTR
12-23-2008, 01:16 AM
Make sure you check KBB before selling it. Sad to see it going, but after all, you're the one who gave it its true value. And of course I'm not talking about the trade-in value.

As for your next ride, a small V8 or a big V6 will be the least to expect.

Lost my job 2 months ago, no longer can afford this.

The car has to go as a whole.

Trade in value tanked on everything recently so I can no longer trade it in on anything without having to put a huge amount down. Need to give it a go at private Party.

Driv3r, I'd rather put money into the jeep right now, tired of going fast. Talk to the bank, see what they can do for you ;) We can work something out.

I am fine, just have a stiff neck right now from when I hit the roof/mirror.

I'll just copy/paste what Ive told others:


Wrecked my car at 240am today.

Coming back from dropping off a package in Dover I hit an overpass filled with ice at around 50...car floated around a little..couldnt save it.

Hit the gaurdrail at like 40-50mph. Airbags didnt go off (wtf?) i hit the rearview mirror/roof (seatbelt always on)

I've got a horrible headache right now but need to get the hell to sleep (been up since yesterday afternoon)

Only lights that work still on the car:

Brake lights.
Low beams
Passenger side High beam
Hazards.

I'm going to the yard later today once I wake up, it's off of 72..so I'll grab some pictures."

"No idea if it is totaled, adjuster is going to look at it Friday.

Yard is closed for the hoiidays (untill friday morning) so I cant get any pictures until then.

From my conversation with chris:

WaNAbESKaTER1588: i pulled my bumper off while i was on the side of the road and looked at the damage
WaNAbESKaTER1588: there is a lot
WaNAbESKaTER1588: pass side headlight is pushed back a few inches
WaNAbESKaTER1588: crash bar is shoved up and in
WaNAbESKaTER1588: pass side frame rail is bent towards the drivers side and up
WaNAbESKaTER1588: theres a weird noise coming from whenever the car is in the on position by the battery

when you have the headlights on, the only lights that work are the ebay HIDs. No tail lights or ambers. Brake lights work, and Hazards work but thats it.

doesnt a bent frame usually mean it'll be written off?

Dr.DooM
12-25-2008, 12:16 PM
@sin
Chassis damage can be repaired, but only if its a small ammount of damage. The car can be put in a jig which has hydraulic rams to push and pull and twist the chassis. As i said tho, this is only worthwhile if theres not much damage.

@Kracka
I know how you feel, a sheep ran out infront of me and i swerved to miss it and hit a rock, rolled my car on the plus side Marr90 has the engine out of it cos it still runs.

If it can be totalled/written off then I am not 100% sure yet. If I had a great job like before, I'd probably look at getting a 2008 G8 GT. Found one with 12k miles on it for $19.7k.

But realistically if the car is written off, and they dont give me what I owe on it, I will just pay the remainder off and then get another MK2 VW or an E30.

That's too bad. Looks like it was a nice car. If they write it off, I would try to buy it from them and repair it on my own. Would be a shame to see a GTO go to waste. I guess it all depends on how much you like your car.

That's cool Linkin but I think he said he's not doing that good financially. Not too long ago I was stuck in a similar situation. Can't put it into words how shitty I felt.

No worries though. Just think of all the Z28s you can get for let's say 3 grand. 50hp isn't much of a downgrade, I suppose.

I've had the car back for quite some time.

I've also been organizing a big GM LSx Meet/Dyno Day that went on 3/7/09 (this past saturday) I haven't seen any pictures yet but I put my car on the dyno, got some decent numbers and tweaked the tune a little bit afterwards.

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n263/3rdgenfan/AllLSxMeet/dirkandgeoff.jpg

I am the green line on the graph, and my numbers are on the top right. The red line is my friends 04 GTO. Same exact setup basically, just his is an auto and he has a Flowmaster Catback, where I have SLP Loudmouth.

As I said, we messed with the tune (added timing + fuel) I should be at 340-345whp right now.

Went to the track last Friday, wasn't really prepped to great so I couldnt get a good E/T but I did get my best MPH...

13.1@111MPH

If I can actually get traction, I should be at 12.7-12.5 judging by MPH with the weight of the car, thats if I can just match my best launch...if I can get my 60ft time down to 1.8 its even lower than a 12.5 :)

For example, the fastest bolt on only LS1 GTO ran 11.98@112MPH. I am 1mph off from being the fastest MPH bolt on car..

I was the 4th fastest stock and 4th fastest header only GTO on the East coast for some time ;)
