Welcome, Goaters.

I have a GTO link in my automotive history, sort of. My first car was a '64 Catalina hard top sedan that I bought to restore (before I even had a licence). It had the 389 engine which GM took and stuffed into the Tempest that started the whole GTO thing. I didn't have the six pack though :P.

I'd imagine that the manual transmission with all that torque would permit some decent fuel economy numbers from a motivated driver.
