1968 GTO project car, rear end view. It's got LeMans tail lights. This view reminds me of my first car, a 1968 LeMans. It was the same color, and had bumper dents in approximately the same places. I'm sure its not the same car though. Did you see the little "BRIAN" license plate on the car? CLICK->

Here's a close-up of the engine that's been rebuilt. Brian says it pumps out 400hp. This car has MSD ignition and a chrome alternator. CLICK->
Looks like Brian is going with that Punisher theme for his 1968 GTO. This is probably a new reproduction hood. Many of the originals get damaged through the years. They often will rust at the front edge due to water collecting under them at the front lip. I've seen them rust from the inside-out, leaving a hole clear through in the front lip. It is great that the reproduction industry has created a replacement for rusted original hoods. CLICK->

The stock radio is gone, but we have a modern radio mounted below the dash along with a vintage CB radio. There is also a three gauge cluster. CLICK->
Meridian Turquoise 1968 GTO hardtop with a black painted top. The owner, D Medberry, tells this story, "The original owner, my Dad, special ordered it from Godfrey Pontiac in Mercer, Pennsylvania in October 1967. It's got a 400 HO 4 speed with dealer add-on Ram Air, factory two tone paint, Rally I wheels, and redline tires. When I was born, I was brought home from the hospital in this car. So you can see it's been a lifelong friend, and will never sell it." CLICK->
Another shot of this sharp looking Meridian Turquoise 1968 GTO hardtop. Notice how the hood scoop inserts have been painted black to match the painted black top. CLICK->
Flambeau Burgundy 1968 GTO hardtop owned by John Caterino. John tells us, "After having the car for four years my buddy and I finally painted it. We did all the body work ourselves. We put 82 hours into it." CLICK->

Lets's take a look down the side of John's GTO. Looks pretty straight to me.
Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Michael Santana in the Navy - "I'm being deployed to IRAQ in July and should (Good Lord Willing) have the funds to get a 2005 GTO when I come home. Anyway, thanks to you, the Mrs., your staff, etc. for putting on the GREATEST HOMAGE TO THE FINEST CARS EVER BUILT BY AMERICAN HANDS!"
