Is that one of the last GTOs? At 350 hp they were no slough for their era, but were too little too late for Pontiac.

GTO is a good guess, but it's a 4-door, so it's a G8.

Since it's GT, it has a 6.0L L-76 V8, all Aluminum.
361 bhp (269 kW) and 385 lb⋅ft (522 N⋅m)

The thing is a beast at almost 2 tons (
3,946 lb (1,790 kg)), but with the torque and the gearing, it's a jack rabbit, and sails up to 90 MPH before you know it.

Yes. Yes it is. It looks 'right'.

I remember when GM announced that they were going to put this GM-Holden on sale, I saw it on GM's internal web site. A black one in 3/4 profile, and right at that moment, just knew I had to get one. Then house, then kids, and the second house, ever got around to it, until now.

Shopped the web really hard for 2 years just collecting information as what mileage, options, and age were running at. The base modules were easy around $5K, but the GT's were between $15-20, for a 100K miles, 10 year old car if you can believe it.

I got lucky. This one was less and 100K miles, and I got it for $13.
