Blue 1967 Tempest Sport Coupe owned by Ryan Treadway's Dad. Ryan tells us, "This is a very clean looking car - so clean the interior smells just like it rolled of the showroom floor. It's all original - no aftermarket interior items. It has been garage kept all its life. I finally got him to drive it when we took these pictures. That's why it has wheels, DAD, so they can roll!"

Montreaux Blue 1967 GTO hardtop that used to be owned by Matt Blank from Wisconsin. It has a white painted top. Matt tells this story, "At 14 years old and after cutting the entire world's lawn, I had enough money and a Dad willing to fly from Wisconsin to Colorado just to look for a muscle car. At the time a Chevelle, Charger, Trans Am, or Goat would do. After looking in Colorado for three days for a rust free car - a 67 hardtop GTO was found and we snagged it up. The year was 1984 and what a trip driving a rust free fixer upper back to Wisconsin. The body was awesome and dent free - it was a really good find. The frame had no rust only dusty bare metal. The car was purchased from the original owner but the 400 had blown, so a 350 was put in. After while that 350 couldn't hold off the other cars at high school. Built Novas, Chargers, and Camaro's could on occasion take me. I found a 360hp HO '68 motor running in a rusty goat in Wisconsin. The motor was purchased and installed after a cam and re-ring. It ran strong - 14.2 ET times on street tires with an open rear end. It now held off the other so-called muscle cars. A few years later, out the motor came, and rebuilt concentrating on block and crank work for power and reliability. The heads and cam were worked on by Whitmore Engines and the carb and distributor were worked on by Leader Automotive. With a Posi rear and the fresh motor, Ram Air exhaust and Ram Air pan it ran 13.10 to 13.4 sec ETs. It was strong on the street! I had the car for 15 years. I sold her to buy a house - Boo! I cried like a spanked two year old when it was hauled away. Now a new era begins. I bought a 68 GTO. I picked it up from Oklahoma. It is pretty much rust free but has dents and needs the entire interior."
