CLICK-> Blue 1967 GTO Sport Coupe, engine view.
CLICK-> Here is a sad story for this 1967 GTO convertible. It resides in Enon, Ohio behind the Post Office. It has been sitting here for years rotting and decaying. The anonymous site visitor who sent the pictures says, "This guy is very mean and I think he gets his jollies from people trying to buy it off him. The body is very straight but the frame is probably rotten from sitting on the ground. Signed - Broken Hearted GTO Lover." The first person to buy this car gets a reward. I dunno what, but there has got to be an honest way to extract this car from the present owner.
CLICK-> Front end shot of this neglected 1967 GTO convertible parked behind the post office behind some fences. Notice that the "GTO" emblem is on the wrong side? It just adds to the mystique of this mysterious untouchable car in Enon, Ohio.
CLICK-> Tyrol Blue 1967 LeMans hardtop owned by Brian Plummer from Greensboro, North Carolina. Brian has this story to share, "I owned this 1967 LeMans seven years ago when I had my 1968 GTO. I did not have a daily driver so I flipped a coin to decide which car to keep. I needed a car to commute with. The 1968 GTO won the coin toss, so the LeMans was sold, regrettably. After purchasing my house, the goat had to go as well to free up some funds. The LeMans stayed local and I hounded its owner to sell it back at every car show and cruise event it went to. Finally his taste in cars changed and we negotiated a price. It wasn't cheap, but I wasn't about to let it get away again.. It now resides in my garage."

CLICK-> Tyrol Blue 1967 LeMans hardtop, interior view. It's got bucket seats, a floor shifted automatic transmission with a console, air conditioning, and power windows.
CLICK-> Take a look under the hood!. Brian tells us, "It has a 1968 GTO YS 400 engine. It replaced the tired 1969 400 from when I owned it the first time. The engine has an Offenhauser intake with two Edelbrock four barrel carbs connected to a 350 automatic transmission. The car has all the power you could expect from a GTO and more and drives like a dream."
CLICK-> Red 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Gregg Ridge from Somerset, Massachusetts. Gregg tells us that it's been totally modified with a cloth custom interior, Corvette Flame Red paint, rear speaker headrest, and custom wheels.
CLICK-> A peek under the hood of Gregg's 1967 GTO hardtop.
CLICK-> Montreaux Blue 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Matt DiMinico from Massachusetts. Matt lists some features, "Matching numbers, 78,000 miles, factory AC, all original except the paint, and purchased in 2003. I have the Protect-O-Plate and the original jack and trunk mat. It was originally purchased in New Jersey and built in Framingham, Massachusetts. I'm currently working on a restoration."
CLICK-> Patrick sends in these pictues of a junked 1966 or 1967 GTO. Patrick comments, "Here are some of the pictures I took at a local junkyard. There are many more old ponchos that I did not get pictures of yet. There are wagons, 2+2 Catalinas, GTO, Tempest, LeMans, Custom-S and The Judge all resting together as they rust into the earth."
CLICK-> That's a GTO hood. The fender is folded over pretty good.
CLICK-> 1967 GTO hardtop awaiting restoration. It's owned by Al and Brett Deutsch from Philadlephia, Pennsylvania. Brett tells this story, "My Father bought this beast brand new off the showroom floor of Block Pontiac on Bustleton Ave in Philadelphia back in 66/67. Block Pontiac has since been long gone, but the goat is still here. This car has some major history. After many false attempts and unfortunate events, the car is currently being restored from the frame up. The body is currently being dipped and we have begun the suspension work. My father gave her to me a few years ago."
