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. 

Feel free to email me with any questions and more specific pics.  Is priced to sell. A deposit of $500.00 is required 24 hours after the final 
bid is received. Seller is responsible for all shipping charges and fees, licences, etc.. required by their state of residence

the Mainland is very simple and moving a car form PR to the Continental US is the same as moving a vehicle form state to state. There is no charge of fee for

GM doing fine at retaining Pontiac owners

Fri, 28 Oct 2011 09:29:00 EST

This isn't the first time we've reported positive news about General Motors retaining former Pontiac owners. Get a few more stories like this latest report from Edmund's Auto Observer, and it will mark an ongoing positive trend for GM. Edmunds.com crunched the numbers to see how well the General is hanging on to customers after shutting out the lights at Pontiac, and it found that nearly 40 percent of Pontiac owners stayed with a vehicle from a General Motors brand.
The numbers are a little lower than an earlier R.L. Polk & Company study, but Edmunds says General Motors is keeping more former Pontiac buyers than it has since 2007. Most are turning to vehicles from Chevrolet, especially during January and February of 2011, when GM incentivized Pontiac owners to stay under the umbrella. Those moves seem to have worked, and 28.1 percent of Pontiac owners trading up made the jump into a Bowtie.
Buyers that have gone elsewhere have largely stayed loyal to Domestic automakers, with Ford picking up the most conquests from Pontiac, with 9.4 percent switching. Toyota and Honda picked up 7.4 percent of the pool of former Pontiac drivers. The numbers are defying any predictions that Pontiac buyers would completely exit the General Motors fold, and have climbed up closer to parity with the retention figures of other GM brands from a 2009 low of only 16 percent retention.

2008-2009 Pontiac G8 recalled over airbag concern

Mon, 07 Nov 2011 13:30:00 EST

General Motors is recalling around 38,000 Pontiac G8 sedans from its 2008 and 2009 model years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the cars may have a passenger-side airbag flaw that might prevent proper deployment in certain scenarios.
According to NHTSA, the airbag might not adequately protect a fifth percentile woman - that is, a woman around four-foot, 11-inches weighing 108 pounds. The New York Times indicates that the anomaly was found during a crash test conducted by GM's Australian branch, Holden, which was testing the G8's twin (read: Commodore) for head injuries. According to that report, the test in question is specifically tailored to simulate injuries to females, so the results do not apply to men or children.
The issue has been blamed on a seat position sensor that governs airbag deployment rates. NHTSA indicates that when the front passenger seat is moved all the way forward, the faulty sensor may inappropriately trigger a 30-millisecond delay between airbag stages, potentially leading to greater injuries.

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 13:59:00 EST

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.
