A Beast — My GTO is a rare vehicle with the endura bumper delete option which was only offered during the first half of the model run. The car has factory front disc brakes which make it driveable as opposed to the four wheel drums which were common at the time. I purchased it from the original owner and have done a slow but methodical rehab of the car. Mechanicals have all been rebuilt and the body has it's first ever repaint. This vehicle is definitely a driver not a show queen which generates interest due to it's uncommon appearance among other GTOs.

Awsome Car — this is an unbeleivable car I bought when I was 16. I have had for 32 years and it has been very dependable. I think the styling has great lines as it was motor trends car of the year in 1968. the great one or gto gass tires and oil was what i refered to it most of the time is a classic. 400ho engine has plently of zip with 383 gear ratio plenty of off the line zip and top end with a lil lag inbetween. I would buy all the 60's cars if i had the means but i would never trade my baby. when i was 16 i had guys my age not come by and say i had one of those but sold it when i got married i vowed to never do the same

Great Car For Fun And Eye Catching.... — Love driving Missy and getting all the compliments....She garners lots of attention from everyone who sees her and hears her go by. Missy growls as a GTO should with her 455 under the hood and dual exhaust system. Still have a few minor bugs to work out but in all after six years she is a joy to drive.

Three Deuces And A Four Speed, With A 389 — Massive amounts of tire shredding torque, and good amounts of horsepower and GTO's are just beautiful cars that have all the power to go along with the styling. Any year GTO 64' to 06' will tear any car on the road today up.

Fast and mean looking.

Gas hungry, and sometimes a Mopar could take me in the 1/4 mile!

Mean Muscle Car — I loved this car, and wish I still had it. Very fast off the line, good cruising, and easy to work on.
