    Few New Pics of the GTO







    The only mods I have done so far other then wheels/tires is replaced the license plate lights with leds, like what you see on the new Lexus/Infiniti's. Like this (not my car, but you get the idea):



    I think it just looks much better than the dull yellow lights every other car has, and with the blacked out tail lights it looks really good.

    Gorgeous car! Absolutely gorgeous, I love the taillights, they really make the car. What size tires do you got on it, they look massive?!

    It's a sweet combo, I love the fat tire look. Your Sonoma looks awesome too. Is it lowered? I'm looking to lower my S10 with a 2/3" drop, is there alot involved? I heard you just need to change the front spindles and use blocks out back. Any first hand experience (assuming your truck is lowered) you could give would be awesome. Again, nice rides.

    Very nice ride. Now how about some SilverStar turn signal bulbs to get rid of that fried egg look up front. It's such a nice clean car, there's only a few minor touches that one needs to do to clean it up a bit more.

    Yes!! I am trying to find the "stealth" bulbs though. They are actually chrome and blink amber, so you dont see them at all. The silverstars are kind blueish and look good as well.

    Fried Egg look, haha.

    Yes Very Nice Car..

    I have only ever seen one up here in Canada, and that was this year at a car show that GM threw at thier St. Catherines powertrain plant. It had quite the crowd around it.

    I just love the fact at how much of a sleeper car this seems. You just glance at it and it doesnt look like anything special, but this will kill all of those ricers off the line. Good luck with your car.

    Sweet ride shadams. I didn't know it was black! I bet that thing is a pain in the ass to keep clean.

    Hey, BTW- step 2 is putting the Goat up on your avatar. Time to move on from the GMC......

    NEVER!!! Hehe, I do need to get a pic of the whole crew though, that would be cool. And yes, it is a PITA to clean. But it stays inside when its nasty so I have really only slaved over it the day I bought it. Since then a dust off or a spot free rinse takes care of it.

    No kidding. Actually its not my house. I wish it were though. We drove out about 30 miles from where we currently live to go check it out and it is AWESOME, but the property next door is a welder's shop/junkyard so we will probably pass. Not good for resale and we are looking to invest in something that will appreciate. Nice place out in the country though. We took some shots of the property and the Goat was lookin good, so.............

    shadams, is there something you're not telling us? You buy new trucks like I but socks, got a GTO, went on vacation, and now looking for a new house?? I guess the upcoming recession isn't affecting some in TX......
