Blue 1964 GTO hardtop owned by Jess Townend from Arlington, Texas. Here's Jess's story, "While stationed at Carswell AFB in Ft. Worth, I bought the car from a fellow airman who couldn't afford to get the car repaired. He had taken it to the Pontiac house and was told it would cost over $500 to fix an upper valve train rattle. On my suggestion, he took the car to a local mechanic who offered to fix the car for $180. That was also too much and the car sat for several months. I offered to buy the car from him for what he still owed on it and he accepted. He still owed $785. Best buy I ever made. The car ran well until I decided to put it in storage because I couldn't afford (on a college budget) to pay 35 cents a gallon for premium gas in 1972! The car is still in storage." CLICK->

Steve Wimmer sent in these old pictures of his 1964 GTO. Steve commented, "This is a '64 Goat that I bought in 1983 or so. Unfortunately, at the time, I didn't know much about early GTO's. The car was rusty and some friends and I parted it out. It had an ugly add-on hood scoop with pop rivets sticking up. I recently got some of the parts out of my parent's attic. I still have the fenders, grille, passenger seat, back seat, dash (with some gauges), and a box of miscellaneous small parts. If any '64 owner needs them, I'll sell cheap. Everything is in fair to decent condition. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org" CLICK->

You might think it would take a lot of green to own this one, but you'd be wrong. (Being wrong was never so pleasant.) The floor is durable vinyl, which makes it nice for families. Like, maybe, yours?" This was sent in by Brian Hoback. CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Jeffrey N. Meyer (Jefflerna.@ucd.net) - "I'm out here in the middle of the Pacific on the Island of Guam. I'm a GTO/Pontiac fan! Ever since my Dad owned a Green '68 GTO when I was young. There are 2 GTO's on this Island of 150 thousand people, I've seen or heard of a black '69 convertible, and heard of a (story) of a '64 stashed away somewhere. So maybe if I get rich someday (hee,hee) or if I go back to the states. I'll certainly buy a '68 or a '69 GTO!"
