Nightwatch Blue 1965 GTO convertible owned by Daren. I just noticed that this car doesn't have a rear-view mirror on the driver's side door. Daren tells us, "These are updated pictures of my '65 GTO convertible. I drove it for the first time on tax day '05. I entered it in its first show on June 5 at the Shriner's Show. It's strange to drive it and see it parked in places after having it in pieces for 20 years. The 389 runs well and I still am tinkering with the rocker arm adjustments and the AFB settings. It still runs well and should be dialed in soon. The 4-speed works well and the car drives easy even with manual steering & brakes. It's a little overdone with some parts painted in black Imron and some plated in nickle and various shades of zinc. All done in subtle good taste and for longevity." CLICK->

Here is Daren's Nightwatch Blue 1965 GTO convertible at the Midlands International Auto Show in Omaha. Daren tells us more, "It was a fun time, but the funnel cake stand located by the vintage cars emitted a greasy film on our cars. We were good sports about it. Cleanup was a cinch. It was interesting to see how visitors responded to our cars after they were examining the latest auto industry offerings. We were appreciated." CLICK->

Says Bob Branson (kbrat.@adelphia.net) - "I have a 67 GTO which I haven't driven for a month, I refuse to drive on salty roads. Your site is helping me break my cabin fever. Keep up the good work."
