Make your payments for the next year and then, if you really want, pick-up
a leftover '05 GTO for less. There will be some out there.
One dealer close to me finally sold their leftover '04 recently, for under
$20k. This same dealership transferred their allotted '05s to a partnered
dealer down in Florida. The only way this dealer will sell one, is by
customer order. These cars simply won't attract buyers, and the additional
HP isn't reeling in the public, as was hoped. I'm sure the appearance of the
Dodge Charger isn't helping GTO sales either. Given the choice between those
two, I'd snag a Charger, 4 doors and all.
