True, but for what a person pays for a GTO, you would expect that car to put out more ponies than what it does. GM lost a big share of the market when they did away with the Firebird/TransAm and the Camaro/Z28 models. They left a wide open market to Ford and when Ford redesigned the Mustang, I'm sure a lot of former GM pony car owners went to Ford because GM had nothing to offer other than the GTO and the Corvette.
One of the other things I noticed about GM was how overpriced they are on their trucks. I looked at one of their 4-door Canyon models in 4x4 and that vehicle, with only a 5-cylinder engine, was running around $29,000. I looked at the Dodge Dakota in similar styling but with a 4.7L V-8 and ended up swiping one of those for $22,500 OTD. Granted, I got the Dakota while Dodge was going through a redesign of the Dakota and I'm sure that helped quite a bit.
