    They're about the same price used

    Cobra: looks better, motor already built to handle boost, easily get it up to 600+ rwhp

    GTO: gas mileage

    If you have to drive it off the racetrack, GTO.

    check the insurance on both of them.

    and drive both of them to see which one you like better.

    personally, I'd go Cobra.

    I thought about buying a 06 GTO. After doing my research and thinking about it, I really would have a hard time spending 30k on a car that has some problems and kind of bland styling. :dunno:

    while I do like the LS2's ... i'd take a terminator over a GTO any day.

    Then don't buy one. Pretty simple.

    Thats tuff. I like both. More partial to the LSX models. But I've raced and driven both. Both excellent choices. Too hard for me to pick.
