Question Clank sound on Start up

Hi Everyone..just came back from a short 50 mile run and turned off the GT. Decided to move it out of the sun. I went to start it and it turned over but there was a metal"clank" sound as I turned the engine over. Engine seemed to run fine. I repeated and each time I get this initial metal sound right at the point of engine turn over.

Any ideas on what I should check out?

Thanks Dave

Unhappy Re: Clank sound on Start up

Hey Bob
The car runs fine . Only additional oddity is if I park it and say rev to 2000 rpm or so I get this "tinny" sound??

On the highway everything seems fine. mind you i am chicken to rev it up while I am moving.
Any Ideas??

Thanks Dave
