Jamie Whims from Simpsonville, South Carolina snapped pictures of this 1968 GTO hardtop in a junkyard. Jamie explains, "I'm just starting to get back into GTOs after selling my '69 Judge about five years ago. Now I'm looking for another GTO as a "father/son" project. Since you say there's a desire for "junkyard" pictures, I thought I'd send you these snapshots of a '68 GTO I found yesterday. It's too far gone to think about restoring it. Everything that makes it a GTO (besides the front bumper and the side emblems) was gone." CLICK->
Orange 1968 GTO hardtop sitting in a junkyard. The body doesn't look too bad from this distance. It appears to be up on top of an old Cadillac. CLICK->
The GTO fender emblem is still on this orange 1968 GTO hardtop. CLICK->
It still has the Endura front bumper which appears to be damaged on this end. Hey, that's a pretty good looking tire in the foreground. CLICK->
Red 1968 GTO hardtop that was owned by Jim Hoard. Jim asks, "Have you seen this car on the west coast, or anywhere? I want it back.
When I got it, the engine was a bit tired. I killed it on the way home, so I could tweak the crap out of it. I had the block bored 60 over, on top of the 30 over bore it had previously. I had it fitted with 72cc Edelbrock aluminum racing heads, matching intake, ceramic coated Hookers matched to Edelbrock turbo mufflers and 2.5 inch pipes, MSD ignition & distibutor, Griffin aluminum 4 row radiator, 2004R OD tranny mated to a B&M Hurst shifter, full race suspension with 1" sway bars. The OD was helpful, but not as much as a 7004R would have been. I got it up to 167MPH on the 110 S., but the freeway ended. Seriously, the car was fast as hell. Not just a claim. The wheels are Ultras, and the tires are Goodyear 175MPH+ speed rated. Those tires are sweet, I never had to replace one." CLICK->

Black 1968 GTO hardtop, front end view. This car has hideaway headlights. They are open. CLICK->
Black 1968 GTO hardtop, rear end view. This car appears to have a 1969 trunk lid. Notice how the bottom curves of the trunk lid don't match the topline of the bumper. Erik won't have a hard time fixing this, as this is the easiest body panel to replace. Just 4 bolts hold a trunk lid in place. CLICK->
Black 1968 GTO hardtop, engine view. Nice. CLICK->
Pepper Red 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Aaron Reynolds from Brisbane Queensland Australia. Notice anything strange about this GTO. No, the picture is not reversed. This is a right-hand-drive 1968 GTO. Aaron must be a big Pontiac fan. He's got a 1979 Trans Am too. CLICK->

Says Mike Jagusch (mjagusch.@juno.com) - "Awesome. I have on my computer "desktop" a picture that I downloaded from your site a year ago. It's a blue hardtop that was voted Picture of the Week 12/26/99."
