    Gto's have alot more room than Birds. But yeah it's tough to get back there on either car.

    It's not that easy to get in the back of Birds, but the GTO is damn hard to squeeze your but into. Once you're there it's an awsome ride; you even have side windows to look out of. Seats are like barcaloungers!

    Yes 2 people can. As anyone will tell you that has owned one I got more comments about the Goat having the nicest interior GM has ever built. Shit for that matter there are Many Vette owner's that put Goat seats in there cars as a up grade.

    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I'm a big guy and I can ride in the back. I don't have much head room back there but I can do it. Me and a buddy rode in the back together and we're both over 6'. Getting in and out is tricky...it's like the car gives birth to me on the way out. If you move the seat all the way forward and then tilt it forward it's much easier.

    bro it's going to go down like this, you will go to the dealership and you will look at the g8 or gto and somewhere down the road you'll lose her whatever, a couple minutes down the road she'll pop back up after test driving a used honda odyssey," Honey I know we came for the gto but look how roomy this is, and look it has so much space we can have 6 kids-I know it looks expensive but if we sell your car we can afford it"

    regarding kids. me and my g/f have a 4 year old daughter. i have a car seat(bucket type) that fits fine in the back of my z. its not really that bad, plus she is within arms reach if i need to reach back there to hand her a drink or what not.

    another plus is she calls it daddys race car. she is always telling me to race and says lets go faster! its cute lol

    haha, i would not let it go down this way, that would definetly be a case where id put my foot down, n plus my gf loves my bird, so i think she'd be into gettin a gto, but gets mad at me whenever she asks to drive it n i turn her down

    drivers' morale daily.
    Destroying Mustang-

    i like mark's suggestion...then again i work as a business manager for a GM dealership...the G8 is a four-door sports sedan, available in v6, but the GT has a 6.0L V8 that (according to our stickers) produces 360+ hp and 385 ftlbs of torque...it's actually fun to drive, and i have an '04 GTO...i prefer my goat, but for around $30k well equipped, you can have a car with more passenger room than alot of the competition, the comfort and luxury that your gf (future wife) will appreciate, and the power and potential that you want when a ricer pulls up next to you on the way back from gettin the groceries...it's just a suggestion, but you might wanna look at em
