Downshifting like you're describing is usually for controlling descent speed on a steep hill or mountain, negating an automatic's tendency to "coast" downhill.

If you're wanting to kick down a...

I've never been lucky with "almost" getting a ticket. My last ticket was in 98, 95 in a 55. 6 points, $400. At the time I was 23, young, dumb and full of lead foot. Fortunately, it was a company car...

It took about 10 months total. One of my co-workers does paint and bodywork at his house and my Dad hired him to do the entire car.

The color is 1966 Pontiac Barrier Blue Metallic. The engine...

20-30rwhp with shorties?

Is this typical? If you can bolt on 20-30rwhp for around $900 that has to be the cheapest hp you can buy. The graph is for 04, I wonder if the gains are comparable for the 05/06.

The most recent classic GTO I've seen on the road is my Dad's freshly restored 66. I love my 06 but I get chills up my back when I drive the 66. Of course, that could just be from the whole car...

05 GTO, I like the staggered wheel/tire combo on your car. What size wheels are you using and what is the offset? Do you have any rubbing/fitment issues with that setup?

I installed the Holden Bluetooth in my 05 in about 30 minutes. For me personally, it was worth the price to not have to cut/splice any wires. It was even more worth it when I traded the 05 for a 06,...

The only problem I would have with these is they wouldn't match the hood scoops on 05/06 cars. Other than that, I think they look good, somewhat reminiscent of the '67 grilles.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but that looks like a photo shop edit to me. Why would they put a kill button on the left side of the wheel behind the turn signal, especially on a stick shift? There are...

Personally for me, there is not a Viper that I would own, no matter what the price, performance, etc. I have never liked them from the beginning, and IMO the new front end is uglier than before.

Agreed. NASCAR race engines only turn a little over 9K, right?

As for the car question, a 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO, IMO the most beautiful car ever made.

My girlfriend has an 05 330ci, it only has 225 hp. The 06's use an aluminum/magnesium alloy for the block to save weight. A GTO would have no problem with either of them in a straight line, but on a...

Umm, don't you mean 1964? Although I am a fan of the C.I.D. numbering, remember the 1964 GTO had 6.5 litre badges on the front fenders, as did 65 - 68. So, if the 7.0 were to appear in a GTO, the...
