White 1964 GTO hardtop owned by GtoDon from North Carolina. This was our Picture Of The Week for 12/21/03. This was his first car. GtoDon comments, "I bought it in 1985. I finished it in 2001. It's got a Tripower and an automatic. I figured it didn't blow up and stayed on the road when it shouldn't have, so it deserved a few bucks and some elbow grease."|

Gulfstream Aqua 1964 GTO hardtop owned by Tom Razzagone from Manalapan, New Jersey. This was our Picture Of The Week for 9/5/04. Thomas tells us, "After a 4 year restoration, I'm proud to show my gorgeous 64 GTO. It has 15x8 Edelbrock 409 rims, 389 Tri-power, 4-speed, 3.23 Posi-track rear, Hooker headers, Flowmaster mufflers, and front disc brakes with all stainless lines. We just returned from a 4000 mile drive with the Hot Rod Power Tour. She didn't have one mechanical breakdown. Not even a flat tire. Next week she'll be shown at The GTOAA East Coast Regionals. I recieved a 1st place trophy at The Pontiac Fall Nationals last year."

Grenadier Red 1964 GTO hardtop owned by Jeff Lovich from Flagstaff, Arizona. Jeff tells us more about his goat, "It has relatively few options including AM pushbutton radio, reverb, two speed windshield wipers and washer, backup lights, spinners and a four speed. The original 389 still sports factory fresh fuel pump and alternator. This car keeps me motivated to finish my Yorktown Blue 1964 GTO coupe."

Wow. Take a look at this red interior in Jeff Lovich's Grenadier Red 1964 GTO hardtop.
This two tone 1964 GTO hardtop is owned by Cynthia Mitchell from Penfield, New York. It is painted Alamo Beige on the bottom and its top is painted Ivory white. This was our Picture Of The Week for 2/25/07. Cynthia's husband, Derek, tells us more, "This is my wife's 64 GTO. It was a gift from me for our 8th anniversary. She loves GTOs and this year was her favorite. I found this gem on eBay in 2002. It was an all original survivor: 389, 4 barrel, 2-speed auto, non-Posi 3.23 rear. It was located about seven hours from us. I drove down to take a look at her and bought it on the spot. I got a great deal as the value of these has gone up since then. Ok all you purists look away at this point! I removed the original powertrain and stored for good keeping. I replaced it with a built 455 and 400 trans, installed a posi unit from Auburn keeping the 3.23 gears, front power disc conversion, rechromed the bumpers, replaced entire exhaust with Ram Air manifold and Pypes 2-1/2 inch crossflow, replaced rug, and added new rubber with 15" Rally ones. The paint hasn't been touched yet."
