    gto or 350z

    Hi, Members! I've recently watched fast and the furious tokyo drift and I was thinking of buying a 2004 poniac gto but I liked the nissan 350z in the tokyo drift movie. Can the gto do what the 350z did in the fast and the furious tokyo drift movie? I mean drifting and horse power. You thought will help me decide on which car to get this year.

    Get a 350Z. This shouldn't be a tough decision for you. One is cool, the other is not. Had they made the GTO with the style and purpose of the old ones, then there'd probably be some competition. Other than the fact that the GTO accelerates pretty decently, its got nothing going for it imo.

    Unless you're buying a 1965 Pontiac GTO, then get the 350Z.

    Welcome to UCP
    1500kg is not 'light'.
    i'd go the 350Z with an APS kit.
    or, i'd go the GTO and talk to one of the aftermarket shops in the US that fit OEM holden parts onto it, so it doesn't look like ass. GTO is more practical and faster, but ugly.

    The GTO isn't a saloon.

    2004 GTO, Is it the one with 400 horsepower, or less?

    It counts as a "2-door-sedan", for some reason. It's based on the Commodore, IIRC.

    Well yes, but the Monaro is a coupe, isn't it? Well at least so I tought. Anyway saloon or coupe it still is a muscle car.

    In 2004 the 6-litre (400bhp) GTO was introduced, altough apparently the 5.7-litre (340bhp) was still produced in 2004, which was its last year.

    Well then if its the 400bhp one, I'd go for that.

    Z's are evrywhere.. you dont see that many GTO's, maybe thats partly because they blend in so well.
