This '68 GTO is located in the Czech Republic. Notice the primer and the Endura delete option. It originally had a 400 engine with a 4-speed transmission, no air conditioning, no power steering, no power nuthin'. Now she has mixed 68-69 equipment. CLICK->
Another shot of this foreign '68 goat. According to the present Czech owner (firstname.lastname@example.org") Petr, it has an add-on '69 Judge wing, '69 sport shifter, 350 Buick engine with TH350 transmission, 10-bolt rear end, Camaro seats, NO dash but Rally gauges cluster, and no hood tach. The body is quite rust-free. The car was offered as a "project car" for a low price. Petr bought it in San Diego in 1996. Then it went over the sea and after many hardships she made it into Petr's garage. People in the Czech Republic get excited when they see any US-made classic car, no matter what the condition.

Here is a recent shot of the bumper. He's still got the California front plate on this car. I bet that raises some eyebrows overseas! CLICK->
A great old magazine ad featuring a green 1968 GTO hardtop. The ad copy below this picture reads: "GET ONE, BEFORE YOU'RE TOO OLD TO UNDERSTAND". A nice big picture like this is featured on the cover of Paul Zazarine's book called GTO Recognition Guide. The picture Paul used is wide so it wraps around the front and back cover. CLICK->SOLD! The yearly Auburn, Indiana Kruse auction is huge. Here's an old photo from the early 1990's. My friend Scott (under the hat) and I pretending like WE just bought this car. Hmm, now it's 15 years later I still look the same. The Kruse Auto Auction is held every year, except now they're owned by ebay. Auburn is just off I-69 North of Fort Wayne, Indiana. If you go to the auction, plan a side trip to the Auburn Cord Duesenburg automotive museum in downtown Auburn. Bring a camera to capture all the cars and the building's unique art deco style. Looking at this photo just reminded me of how I started the website in the 1990's. Full page flatbed scanners were new at the time and relatively expensive. I used to take all my car pics down to Kinko's and have to rent computer time from them to scan. Expensive. It was difficult with their slow freaky (to me) Mac computers. And only a few images would fit on each floppy. Then when I'd get home I'd edit the scanned pics and in the end they'd look horrible...compared to today's standards. I'm amazed at the recent improvements in scanners and digital cameras. People are now uploading some of the largest and clearest pics I've ever seen on my monitors. CLICK->

I spotted this white 1968 GTO-lookin' station wagon. Non-factory car? Yes. It was parked in the parking lot of the GTOAA Nationals host hotel one year. I think I snapped this photo in the '80's. CLICK->
1968 GTO with a '69 bumper and grille on a tree-lined street. This car appeared on a calendar many years ago. I believe it resides in California. CLICK->

A '68 GTO with hideaway headlights. Looks gray. It belongs to Mason M. Wilkinson (email@example.com) who tells us this, "My car was given to me by my Grandmother, who used it as a daily driver in Connecticut until her doctor told her she was too old to drive. I restored it to Pontiac's and my own standards, eliminating the vinyl roof, rebuilding the motor, interior and then updating the suspension to polygraphite bushings all around, later model disc brakes and spindles and a negative roll (camber) upper A-arm conversion. It has 400 engine, M-21 close ratio four-speed, NO AC, AM radio with reverb rear speaker, teal interior and an updated two-stage paint that is only slightly darker than the Nordic Blue Pontiac listed from 1965. I went with BASF paints for the repaint, and had them match up Grandma's favorite shade. My plate reads "68 TOTEM",... in keeping with the Indian themes of Pontiac history and the cultural significance in tribal terms of the totem being the family identity, spiritually speaking. How much more spiritual can one get than the family automotive heirloom passed on intact from one generation to the next? I intend to carry on in that very vein." CLICK->
This '68 GTO is getting away! For a big heavy car, it still was fast. Do you have any pictures of a GTO at the drags? Email them to me at the bottom of this page. CLICK->
