R.J. Malec owns this awesome 1967 GTO hardtop. R.J. tells us more about his Goat, "I just finished complete frame-off restoration. It has a strong running 400 connected to the original 4-speed. Every bushing is new along with all the steering components. I converted from manual steering to power and changed front drums to power disc brakes. The car rides great and has 3.31 gear so it can be highway driven." That sounds like a very streetable ride.

Front end shot of this blue 1967 GTO hardtop. I see a lot of cars with the antenna gone. Maybe they are normally covered by car covers. There are two ways to tell the difference between a 1966 GTO and 1967 GTO from the front end. One, the grilles on a 1967 have chrome diagonal mesh while the 1966 has black squares. Two, the chrome trim over the grilles on a 1967 are continous from headlight to headlight with a little jog down to the bumper in the center. A the trim on the grilles on a 1966 are two separate pieces which do not connect in the center and go around each grille. Compare to this picture of a 1966 GTO. CLICK->

Garnet Red 1967 LeMans hardtop owned by Michael Nestleroad from Bluffton, Indiana. Michael explains, "This was my Dad's first car. He bought it from his half-brother's Mom who was original owner. The car was bought new in my hometown and has always been in Indiana. My Dad bought this when he was 16 and drove it daily until 1981. He decided then to park it and hopefully restore it when he had the money. Unfortunately, my Dad passed away in July of 2006 and his car never made it out of the barn that he stored it in. In memory of my Dad and his dream, my wife and I decided to make his dream a reality. The car came out of the barn in June of 2007 and sent to the shop for a 'New Look'! My Dad had put a GTO hood on this car and because of this I decided to clone this LeMans out when restoring it. Paint and body work was done by Bluffton Body & Paint which is owned by Kevin Johnson. He was a longtime friend of the family and seemed like a excellent choice for restoration. This car was converted over a period of about five months. The interior was done by Brenda's Interiors in Liberty Center Indiana who also happens to be my Mother-in-law! I guess you could call that planning ahead! Thanks to both for making this dream a reality!" CLICK->

Garnet Red 1967 LeMans hardtop, rear end view. Indiana has good lookin' blue license plates that say "In God We Trust". The majority of citizens accept the plates and display them proudly and without reservation. The Indiana state government likes to keep God by their side. The Indiana House of Representatives for many years has continued their tradition of opening their daily legislative sessions with a prayer, despite some whom might object. That practice was challenged. In 2005, a federal judge issued an injunction forbidding any pastor or priest to utter the name “Jesus” in statehouse prayers. The judge who outlawed saying Jesus in prayers in Indiana, Judge Hamilton, was appointed by President Clinton. Members of both political parties have vowed to fight the ruling, stating that the Federal Government has no right to censor the content of prayers. CLICK->
This looks cool. The interior is done in Garnet Red and white vinyl. The seat backs have "GTO" on them. CLICK->
This is what Michael started out with. Fresh out of the barn! CLICK->

Torch Red 1967 GTO, right side view. This car was recently repainted by Lapp's Paint Body in Bryan, Texas. Wondering where the familiar "GTO" emblem on the rear quarterpanel went? You cannot see it, but the GTO emblem has been replaced with "GHOST GTO" written into the paint. Those are Boyd 17 inch rims.

Signet Gold 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Michael Clarke from Plainfield, Illinois. Michael tells us more, "This car was passed down to me from my father. He owned it since 1991 and has put a lot of time and effort to make it a nice driving goat. I received it in Feb of '08. Ever since he picked it up I've been trying to talk him out of it. November of '07 he finally gave in and let me have it. I think that he's had his fun with it and was ready to let it go to the next generation." CLICK->
