04 GTO - almost!
so i was at the car wash washing my bird, noticed a red o4 vette come in, slammed to the ground with blacked out wheels and a ghost flame hood, checked it out then finished washing my ride, when i fired the bird up those guys came around the corner with big grins and thumbs up wanting to scope it out, so we talked and they listened to it and i went my way, nice guys, got on the on ramp just cruising going through the gears - no big deal when i see a GTO in the mirror hauling up on me, i see he has a ram air hood and i think this guy wants to run, so i shift into 4th and lay off it just waiting on him, he never would pass just got up to my rear tire and stayed there, i think i am going to bust an LS2, just as i was gonna nail it he pulls up to the window and starts talking to me at 65 mph, i cant hear him so we pull over at the next exit, turns out to be an 04, he said my car sounded amazing and he wanted to look it over, so we talk fo 20 minutes or so and leave opposite directions, both of us sideways, lol made my day to have a car load of guys in a vette take notice and a gto chase me down just to look at it!!!

Nice! Get a good polishing on her and take some for COTM..
NBM is an amazing color under a high polish.. IMHO

yea, gotta get rid of the gold stripe, if the car was black i would leave the gold theme but i dont think it goes with the blue to well, the PO thought so, he was going for the hurst look. it has rained every day for over a month here, seems like its hot as hell while im at work and soon as i get home and start to do something with the bird it gets black and starts thundering then come s the rain, lots of hail lately too, keep it under the carport all the time.

Your car is nice.
I keep having this older guy in an 2010 Challenger pull up to me on the way home. Always wanting to race. His car is gorgeous.
What did you do with the first set of wheels with the gold on them? Those are cool.

i sold em, wasnt feeling the gold man, changing to chrome accents to match the wheels.
