    I have pics of it from Motor Trend a few months back, they were talking about Pontiac doing that and releasing a "The Judge" model.

    :eek3: Weren't joking about the scan. It still is kinda bland, but the scoops make it a little meaner. Def. a step in the right direction.

    looks good to me.

    And Rob Cohen? Oh, goodie. FnF's fantastic director whose acting is just as good as his directing.

    First we were told it's cool because it looks bland like a Cavalier. Now we're supposed to get excited over tacked on nostrils and body cladding. Uh yeah...

    they did the same thing with the Grand Am:

    Bob: Gee, people say the G/A is boring...looks like a Cavalier...what to do, what to do
    Frank: Well, Pontiac builds excitement
    Ted: I GOT IT!, MORE CLADDING AND NOSTRILS!!!! PEOPLE LOVE NOSTRILS!!!!!!

    All the losers online have been bemoaning the hood on the car, so they styled a new one, and there's no cladding on the GTO.

    Kind of like the last time the Camaro was redesigned. :dunno:

    This is sooo how I classify these people as well. Its like they expect GM to cater to whatever they want no matter how much the general populace loves this car. They are selling well so far and all the moaning and bitching online has doen nothing. This time GM has a winner and they do it outside the normal GM fuck-it-all-up-way. The nostrils were fugly on the TransAm and they'll be fugly on the GTO. Purists may love them but the TA was fugly which played a part in its demise.

    They did a good job styling the hood on this car, it flows very well and is nicely subdued. But the hood alone is not enough to set my heart on a 2005 over the current model yet.
