    I have been kicking around the idea of replacing my 1998 Infiniti Q45t. Started looking at the GTO's and found a 2005 with only 3467 miles on it. It has the 6 spd and 18" wheels. It's Torrid red with black interior. I bought it!

    The car is located at a dealership in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. So I will book a flight with Southwest, and fly down on the 21st to pick it up and cruise back home.

    Looking forward to the road trip!

    Bought off EBAY from Mitchell Motors

    This is the third car I have bought off Ebay. First was the 98 Q from a dealer in Scottsdale, AZ. Then a 67 Camaro from a guy in N.C. And now the GTO. Really looking forward to the drive home.

    Congrats on your badass new engine. ;) :thumbup:

    Can't say the same for the special-ed inspired styling though. God, those things are silly-looking. :lol:

    Congrats on the new car. I actually live right around Ft. Lauderdale so I could've given it a little test drive for you ;) but that looks like a great car. I'm glad you got the black interior instead of the red, because I hate the red. And I love the style of the car, others don't seem to like it much but I think it looks great

    Sweet. Are you keeping it stock, or doing any mods to it?

    I would buy an HID kit, and install it at the dealership before i drive home :cool:
