Aquamarine 1964 GTO hardtop owned by Art Meadows from Derby, Kansas. Art had this story to share, "I found it on E-Bay in January 04. Picked it up in St. Louis and drove it home in a snow storm. It is a California car and had only arrived in St. Louis two months earlier. It has the 2-speed auto and 389 4-barrel. All the part numbers match the build paper except the replacement alloy wheels and Remington radials. It is a twin of the car I bought in Santa Maria California, new in 1964. It runs just as great as it looks!" CLICK->

Blue 1964 GTO hardtop spotted by a site visitor, Bill. It was up for auction at the Kruse Auto Auction in Indiana. I've been to the Kruse auction several times. There are outstanding cars there. It's a fun time, especially when I get to cover the event using free media passes through the radio stations where I work. There is a special section to sit in which is elevated. Members of the media can look down and see the auction taking place. This auction is attended by many spectators and tends to bring out some of the finest cars in the world for sale. One year (maybe 1991) I was particularly interested in a batch of '50s and '60s Cadillacs that were up for auction. It was a collector that was shedding several extra cars. Many of the Cadillacs were convertibles and several of those were eye-catching red and white. Each one was restored to perfection, sitting under a large red and white striped tent. I looked each Caddy over with interest. After examining a dozen of them, I saw no flaws on any. There were no signs of wear. There was no dust on them either. Until I saw this collection of outstanding Cadillacs, I didn't realize it was even possible to restore cars to such high standards. CLICK->
Alamo Beige 1964 LeMans sport coupe owned by Rich Rzepka from Erie, Pennsylvania. Rich tells us more, "I did a complete frame-off restoration. The body and interior restored to bone stock with the
exception of removing all exterior emblems. On the other hand, everything that makes it go, stop, and steer has been upgraded. It's got a Currie 9 inch rear, four wheel Baer disk brakes, Lee quick ratio steering, Global West front A-arms, P275/40R17's in the rear and P255/40R17's up front, and a 400 with Jim Butler heads backed up by a Muncie four speed. This is the first real 'frame-off' I've done. I wanted to practice before starting on my '66 GTO that's in great shape, but is starting to show it's age and just begging to be made perfect." CLICK->
1964 Pontiac Estes Award Plaque. It's got a Grand Prix and GTO on it. The plaque was given to Stamer Motors, in Chicago, in the last year that E.M. Estes was their General Manager. The wood, possibly solid walnut, measures about 13" tall by 19" long by 3/4" thick. It weighs about 8 1/2 pounds. The metal appears to be aluminum with a Bronze finish. CLICK->

owned by Don Salisbury. Don tells us more, "This is a PHSed and numbers correct 389 Tri-Power 4-speed. I have owned the car 28 years. I took the picture at the 1000 Islands Bolt Castle. I just recently did a freshen up on the car. It still retains most of the original parts but every thing was taken apart and cleaned, painted, or plated with the exception of the bumpers which were done in 1993." CLICK->
This picture of a red 1964 GTO hardtop was taken at the 2003 Cruisin OC car show in Maryland. Look at all those letters on that license plate - must not be a real government-issued one. A car this nice probably does not belong at a multi-make show like this. The cars are so close together. Straight to the Nats! I like the tangerine rod next to it as well. CLICK->
As of December, 2004 Bob is trying to locate his old 1964 GTO convertible. Bob says, "I started building it at the age of 14 and then had to sell it in 1980 to buy my 1st house. It was sold in Passiac, New Jersey and then went to Florida and traded for 2 Corvettes. I then heard it was seen on an Amtrack train going to California. Any help finding this car would be appreciated." CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Larry Parks (deuceguy.@city-net.com) - "I have not had a car in 15 years and would like to get back into the game. I can't tell you how many cars used to just follow me home. However I've been out of this for a long time and times have changed."
