400 hp Pontiac musclecar. The last GTO was a fantastic car, but sales were dismal. Three factors
sited for poor sales. (1) It's from Australia, not the USA. I think that
would be a stupid reason not to buy the car, but, many people are stupid! (2) Looks. It looked
good enough to me, but, many complained that
it didn't resemble any previous GTOs. (3) Cost. Maybe there should have been a less expensive Tempest V6 (the old GTO was based
on the Tempest/LeMans), a 300 hp GTO, and a 400 horse GTO JUDGE (historical name for extra potent GTO).
In street lingo, the Pontiac GTO is known as "GOAT", and a GTO owner, a "Goater".
