This one was emailed in by Rick Miller of Kennewick, Washington. Rick tells us: "You have a great site! I love looking through it. Here is a picture of my '68. It's rough but at that time it ran 11.88 @ 114 mph all steel with full interior a 455 and 4:11 posi. It's apart now getting the matching numbers parts put back on as well as a major cosmetic overhaul. This is a two owner car with all the right pieces, just wish it was done. Keep up the great site because I'll definitely be back to look some more." CLICK->
The copy on this vintage 1968 magazine ad reads, "We've just received our 4th car of the year award. But with a car like this, what did you expect?" This ad is READABLE!
This '68 LeMans was sent in by Jstenklyft@sprynet.com who says it needs a lot of work. He paid $900 for it. It has almost perfect seats. Although it has a GTO emblem on the grille, it has holes in the rear quarters where the LeMans letters used to be. He says he will go ahead and put as much GTO stuff on the car as he can. CLICK->
Take a look at the front fender on this 1968 LeMans. Yep, it needs a little work. CLICK->

Corey Schmitz is now the owner of this 1969 LeMans hardtop. Corey explains, "Hey Sean! I must say I really love your site! It always keeps me dreaming of what to do to my LeMans. But it was really crazy because I was lookin through the other 68 GTOs - dreaming of what to do to mine, and I came across my car! I guess it was put on there by a previous owner. I just thought that it was really weird. So I submitted a picture of me and the car now." CLICK->

Bill Armstrong remembers cruising in his 1968 Alpine Blue GTO. This vintage picture shows his entry in an Auto Cross while he was in school at Ole Miss. Although the car was brand new, a few minor changes were made to it. He added a High Flow Edelbrock air filter in place of the factory unit - and changed the high beam lights to Cessna airplane landing lights! CLICK->
This is a small image . But if you look closely, you can see Bill's 2.5 inch exhaust pipes coming out the back - from the Hooker headers - connected to straight mufflers. Bill changed the tires and added Koni shocks. He says he could get rubber in all four gears with his Hurst Fist Grip close ratio shifter. CLICK->
Bill's ride was featured in the newspaper. This is an old clipping of his 1968 GTO. CLICK->
GTO email list member Mark Andreadis sent me this picture. It is a 1968 LeMans. Mark resides in Ohio behind the wheel of this car with a newly rebuilt 350 engine. It is done to factory specs with the exception of the 4bbl carb, dual exhaust, and TH350 transmission which replaces the original ST300 transmission. Most every LeMans came with a 350 V8 in it.

Mark Andreadis gives us a look at the engine compartment of his 1968 LeMans. If you look at the left side of the image, you can see that this car used to have air conditioning. The compressor bracket can be seen, but no compressor. Mark - give me your email address! CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Tom Norton (norton.@launch.net.au) -"I live in Brisbane Australia and had never even heard of a Pontiac GTO until your site... I am going to import a 1968 hardtop (my favorite along with 69 judges) and fix it up (I might need your help for that!)"
