CLICK-> White 1967 hardtop GTO owned by Bob Horne from Tucson, Arizona. Here's what Bob had to say about his car:
I purchased the car nearly 10 years ago for $1500.00 and drove the car for 2 weeks. It had a burned valve in the original 400 engine. It sat for years until I decided to restore it like I would have when I was in High School and had some money. Since it had virtually no rust, it was a body-on resto.
I had a 455 built with 9-1 TRW forged pistons, forged rods, Crane cam and head work on a pair of 4X 400 heads. A Performer intake topped with a Braswell 1000 CFM Holley (Nascar style) carb together with an HEI ignition handles the combustion. I rebuilt the T 400 and decided to keep the 2.92 rear as I wanted to drive the car on long trips and eventually run the Pony Express 100 in the 140mph class. The car will go 150+ and I have driven it several times that fast. It turned a 14 flat 106mph in the quarter mile shifting into drive through the lights! (Not enough tire for a drag launch).
I was able to purchase one of the last suspension kits from HO Performance just before they closed the doors several years ago. Believe me, with the F-body spindles, 1-1/8" sway bars - front and rear, disc brakes in the front, Monte Carlo Steering box and ZR rated 255/50 ZR16 Comp. TAs this car handles like a Corvette. In fact, I call it "my family man's Corvette".
It is painted the original Code White for 1977, with a red Re-pop interior. Centerline Drag Stars specially made with the suggested offset from HO finishes off the stance.
I have driven the car literally all over the State of Arizona, racking up nearly 10,000 miles in the process. Highway gears make the gas mileage a little more reasonable, 8 - 10 MPG is average if I keep my foot out of it. Last year I entered it in a local SCCA cone race and much to the surprise of the local members, beat several sports cars including 2 Boxters. The Porsche owners left immediately afterward.

CLICK-> Red 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Steven Stinson from Buckingham, Virginia. Steven had this to say about his car, "This car has been in the family for over 20 years. My grandfather was a used car dealer and one day he came across this beauty and had to have it. When I was little and saw it, I would always say "My Goat." When my 18th birthday came around, the 'Goat' was handed to me."
