    Drove the GTO first. (both were manual transmissions)

    It had >7K miles on it. It was blue with blue and black leather interior... really liked it in person. The back seats looked big enough for small adults. The LS1 was nice, and it felt like it had great power. They were asking 22K for it :eek3:


    (no pics of the vette, they must have sold it last night)

    The vette was black and had 50K miles on it. The first corner I took slow, and when I shifted into second I almost went sideways :bowdown: Sick power, great looks... they wanted 34K for it.

    I liked both cars :bigthumb:

    I know, I was soooo tempted to buy it, but the looks just kinda turned me off (that and the weight).

    how much more than 7k miles?
     
  8. the 05 hood helped the gto a lot. but it's still a cavalier with a v8.

    For pure fun, the vette blew the GTO away. I really, really liked the interior of the GTO though, so for an everyday car the GTO would probably be better.

    34K is wayyyy too much.


    I also like those GTO's too. They go for High teens here.
