As one of the "renegade GM engineers" (Russ Gee was the other one) who put the 389-cubic-inch V-8 in a Pontiac LeMans, which John (DeLorean) called the GTO, I would like to comment on the 2004 GTO.
It is too bad the new one does not have hood scoops and dual exhausts. And why not red-line tires?
The car in the photo you showed in some editions of the April 7 issue has NO real identification. It is vanilla and does not make any visual statement. We can only hope that its overall performance will be more than outstanding.
