    Re: GTO v. LM. The LM is extremely hot, very noisy, and has a gearbox that's hard to master. My buyer of 5909, Sonny Bono, destroyed the gearbox inside of a month. The GTO,imho, is considerably more pleasant to drive. Just my 2c.

    Ed is exactly correct. The LM is very much pure race car, considerably quicker than the GTO (8 seconds at Laguna Seca), much less comfortable, and more difficult to live with. The GTO is one of those rare cars that is everything it is "cracked up" to be. GTO's make any driver look great, easy to drive in all conditions, no problems with controls, never surprise you. I have been lucky enough to spend lots of time in both on public roads over the years. VERY DIFFERENT cars.

    letting someone take photos of your car can be dangerous to its' health and security

    digital photos may contain GPS coordinates ( if not disabled )…. if posted to the internet... allowing anyone in the world to look up the exact location of the car at the time the photo was taken... especially anyone looking for anything of value to steal
