Black Cherry 1965 GTO clone convertible owned by Tony Mirrione from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Tony tells us, "I purchased this car on January 2, 1997, in Shawnee, Oklahoma. The car came originally out of Mcloud, Oklahoma from the original owner. It was a Tempest Custom convertible with a 326CI engine and no other frills. The car had great floorboards and the body was almost rust free, except for some minor dents. I had to bring this car back to the future as a GTO because that was my dream car. I couldn't afford to buy a real one so I built this one. It took six years but was well worth it. A lot of friends helped with their talents and time to get this car where it is now. It now has power steering, power brakes, a dual gate shifter, and a 400 ci engine with a turbo 400 behind it. A 3.23 Posi unit and a Ram Air 65 Tri-power setup." CLICK->

Says Peter Rank - "It's awesome, I can't get it out of my head. I tried getting off the computer for a while but I just went right back. I'm 17 and this is great education for someone who wants to get into cars like I do."
