Pontiac GTO

The GTO was one of the sporty coupe models Pontiac built. It started life as a muscle car in 1964 and lasted only ten years, and was revived for three years (2004-2006), just before General Motors shut down their Pontiac division. The 2004 model year was equipped with a 5.7L LS1 engine, while the 2005 and 2006 models were equipped with a 6.0L LS2.
