After all this the car was sold on Ebay to a gentleman in Puerto Rico and was imported to the island on 2008.
The gentleman a retired business man only used the car for sunday drives and was stored on his garage.

One day I was washing my car on a local Car Wash and this powerful sounding sleeper GTO caught my eye, I walked to the guy 
and started talking to him about the car, one thing led to another and I ended up buying the car form him.

After I purchased I have done just basic maintenance and some upgrades such as:

----- Backup sensors ----------

----- New window switch --------

----- Power Lock retrofit kit from a Holden (no power lock on 2004) ----

----- Installed a 3-12volt power supply under the radio ------

----- Installed an AC cabin filter (no cabin filter on the GTO, just an air inlet) -------

----- New rear cross drilled rotors and pads (painted calliper red to match the Baer 14" fronts) -----

---- 4 brand new VMR 19" Wheels custom powder coated -------

---- New 245/40-19 Nitto INVO front tires ------

---- New 285/30-19 Nitto INVO rear tires ------

---- Gorila security lugnuts -----------

---- Swaped the Peddler front coils to a set 1/2" taller -------

---- Installed new front strunt mounts -------

Now how it drives? Having owned my share of performance and modified cars, this GTO is a GT on steroids.
The hydraulic clutch is not stiff like mustangs or pre 2005 Carreras. But is not as soft as a 2005+ Carrera. After
owning this GTO I will install a hydraulic clutch to my 93 cobra. The seats are very very comfortable and the rear
seats are the real surprise, they are as comfortable as the front and they accommodate a full size adult with no problem.

The car will spin the tires and smoke them out if you turn off the traction control, with the traction control on the computer
will keep it in control. If you punch the gas, the power is insane.

As modified as the car is the reason I ended up buying it is that under normal driving it is no different than driving any other
non modified car, and is the most comfortable modified car I have ever owned (Mustangs, Porsches, Evo, STI, Miata and Corvette).

The stereo has automatic volume level adjustment and sounds really good (for a 44 year old guy) also under acceleration the car is
really loud and powerful, but once you reach cruising speed there is no drone and the cabin is as quiet at stock.  

It is really a unique and very well built car, the interior finish is only comparable to current US automaker offerings. Superb materials for the time
and even today.

So why sell it? No reason, Time for something new (I only have space for 3 toys) and this one has all modifications done and I need
my to do list of projects.

David Hasselhoff's own KITT replica up for auction

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 16:03:00 EST

Depending on when and where you grew up, the name David Hasselhoff likely conjures up images of Knight Rider, Baywatch, pop singer, or possibly a washed-up TV actor, but one thing that can never be taken away from The Hoff is his connection to one of the greatest automotive icons in pop culture. The Knight Industries Two Thousand, usually shortened to simply KITT, was the real star of Knight Rider for many fans. Based on a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the car combined snarky quips for comedy relief and stunts to provide much of the show's actions. Now, Julien's Auctions is selling Hasselhoff's own replica as part of a larger sale of the actor's personal memorabilia collection.
This recreation is based on a 1986 Firebird and comes with all of the tech on the inside that now seems hilariously outdated, like the yoke steering wheel and plethora of buttons. The interior also thoughtfully includes a voice box with over 4,000 sound clips from the show. With a 5.0-liter V8 and an automatic transmission, performance is likely adequate and period correct. According to the listing, this car was created by fans and given to the Hoff. Sadly, the replica doesn't convert to Super Pursuit Mode like KITT could in later seasons, and we most associate KITT with conventional front-hinged doors to go with the power t-tops and ejector seats.
Bidding currently sits $27,500 with eight bids, since starting at $15,000. Julien's predicts it will sell for between $30,000 and $50,000. If there is some nostalgia for KITT in your heart, there is still plenty of time to bid.

Howard Stern latest in Seinfeld's passenger seat for CiCGC

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 19:58:00 EST

We'll be honest: the actual cars in Jerry Seinfeld's hit internet series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, typically take a back seat to the celebrities in the front row. Seinfeld usually throws in a few lines about his classic wheels in the first minute or so, and then moves on to the important business of sprightly conversation and pithy one-liners. It's great.
This time around, with legendary motormouth Howard Stern riding shotgun, the 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge that might have been a co-star, gets forgotten about almost completely. Instead, Stern spends a tremendous amount of screen time extolling the virtues of his therapy sessions, attempts to dive into Seinfeld's prowess as a lover and generally makes a nuisance of himself. Pretty much to plan, then.
Scroll below to hear Howard accuse Jerry of acting like Jesus, just before declaring himself the greatest radio personality in the history of the business.

Automakers tussle over owners of 'orphan' makes

Thu, 10 May 2012 08:29:00 EST

When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln. research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.
