Aaron sends in more pictures of his Pepper Red 1968 GTO hardtop. Aaron tells us, "I restored the grilles one night sitting on the lounge room floor (the better half was thrilled!)." CLICK->

Here's a shot of the right-hand-drive interior in Aaron's 68 GTO. I notice that the console lid still opens toward the left. This guy uses his left foot for the brake pedal and his right for the gas. Just like me! How can I tell? Look at the wear pattern on the brake pedal. CLICK->
Aaron installed a new 3 inch stainless exhaust system. It's got an H pipe. This is a shot from the engine looking toward the rear of the car. The extra pipes in the front connect to the headers. CLICK->
Eric Rockwell owns this 1968 LeMans hardtop. Right now it is primer gray with a black painted top. Eric tells about his plans for this car, "I chased this car for four years. The owner finally sold it for $500. I flew from Jacksonville, North Carolina to San Diego and bought it. I drove all the way back across the country without a single problem. It has 164,000 miles and ran like a champ. It was the best week of my life! I plan on restoring it when I get home from Iraq." CLICK->
Blue 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Mike Schutz. He purchased in 1983. It has a 400ci 350hp engine with the Hurst His & Hers shifter. CLICK->
Blue 1968 GTO hardtop, left rear view. While in High School, I woulda KILLED to have a set of Cragars like that. They are the SST series. But here in the Midwest (they call it the rust belt states) these wheels tend to get too rusty. So these days I favor the Cragar SS wheel and a yearly coat of wax. And stay out of the rain and snow. And store the car indoors all the time. And still, you might need to steel wool the rust spots off. Indiana is so rusty, not kind to old cars! CLICK->

Solar Red 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Jeff Caldwell from Montgomery, Texas. Jeff tells us this story, "Growing up, our family car was a '69 Judge. It was one of the original 2000. It sold for $1200 in the gas crunch days. I would have given my left... well, you know. Needless to say I was hooked at an early age. This car started life as a Verdoro Green with Ivy Gold interior and Gold top. I have never seen one like it yet. I'm fairly sure it won't look like that while I own it. I think the '68 WT engine has never been gone into. I'm planning a sleeper rebuild - who would expect a red GTO to be fast?" CLICK->
Solar Red 1968 GTO hardtop, right rear view. Mmm, red and white. What a nice color combination. Now I'm envisioning what my white '68 car would look like if I repainted it red? It has Cragars and a '69 spoiler just like the red car. They even wear the same kind of tires. CLICK->

This is a flip-front 1968 GTO. I enjoy seeing tilt nose cars. In high school I always wanted a tilt nose GTO with this style of wheels. My tastes have changed a lot since then. CLICK->
