new GTO owner's husband
Just picked up an '05 impulse blue/blue leather GTO with the 6 speed on Monday....wow, what a car! Believe it or not, it was my wife that really pushed to make it happen, she'd been driving a perfectly good (and boring) '04 Honda Accord for about a year, when she announced a couple of weeks ago that it's just too boring, and she wanted something a little more exciting, with 2 doors, but a decent sized back seat. I think her words were something along the lines of "driving the Accord is about exciting as operating the toaster"
Well, I didn't need to be told twice on that one, I've wanted something with a little more attitude for a while, so after doing some research and some shopping around, we pulled the trigger on Monday. I've got to say I was surprised (and pleased) when she insisted on the 6 speed, the grin on her face on that test drive was priceless! The fact that she picked my favorite color/interior combination was just icing on the cake.
Anyway, just wanted to say hey, I'm looking forward to participating in the forums and maybe meeting some of you, maybe she'll even let me take it to the Pavilions one of these weekends!
