    Am I imagining things? I just saw a Pontiac commercial on SpeedChannel featuring the GTO. The tagline went something along the lines of:

    "4 years ago we released the most powerful GTO ever. Now with only 2,000 left, this may be your last chance to get one."

    Are they really having that much trouble moving the remaining '06s off the lots? It's freaking May 2007 :ugh:.

    Humm... I wonder what they are going for. I guess apparently too much.

    I might be interested in one if the price was right. Tough it would have to be one hell of a good deal. Something like $20K. I like the GTO but I am liking the G8 even better.

    28k, there's about $400 difference between transmissions with gas guzzler tax included.

    Is the auto worth looking at, or is it a typical American slushbox?

    I don't know what you mean by that but yes, it's worth looking at. It's faster than the manual and launches much easier.

    I thought GM's 100k was for 2007+ models only?
