Used Car of the Day: 2004 Pontiac GTO
The mid-Aughts Pontiac GTO was a pretty fun car even in stock form -- I drove more than a few during my time as a front-desk service grunt at a BPG dealer -- and today we feature a modified 2004 Pontiac GTO that's presumably even more fun, thanks to modifications.
The mods include a Whitehall strut tower brace, upgraded bushings, Lovell springs, Pedders shocks and struts, 3.91 Aussie gears with Eaton Truetrac LSD, black racing wheels, window tint, Halo headlights, NGK spark plugs, and racing ignition coils.
Oh, and a K&N cold-air intake and ported throttle body, "Cheatr" camshaft, and a new built transmission, among other things.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

- Kwik_Shift Love the boxy exterior. To me this is a real SUV. Adventure calls.
- SCE to AUX "We'll get ahead of that recall thing next year. Or the year after."
- Dukeisduke This would make sense, given a five-year product cycle.
- Fred Dart is a block used for racing. Very expensive, even a small bock Chevy iron is about $2000
- Dukeisduke Is this Ford Recall Number 51 (in 2023)?Keep up the great work Farley! 👍️
