Dave made a negative of his last picture. Looks scary! The cemetery can be seen in the background. This reminds me of the car in "The Punisher" movie. CLICK->

Primered 1968 LeMans hardtop owned by Christopher Lang from Shady Cove, Oregon. Christopher tells us, "I purchased this car for $500 in not running condition two years ago. Since then, it's been a project just to put it on the road. With lots of money, work and help I've been able to get it on the road and enjoy this Pontiac as a daily driver. And, on top of all of this - I'm on crutches, permanently." CLICK->
Christopher's 1968 LeMans with an old Duster in the background. It looks like a 1983 scene from my old driveway in Marion, Indiana. I had a LeMans with a Duster in the background. ...except my Duster was up on blocks. CLICK->
Troy Smith doing some body work on his blue 1968 GTO hardtop back in 1986. See the drill and vise-grips on the ground? Troy tells us more, "This 68 GTO was my first car, and one of 7 GTO's. This was back in 1986, as you can probably tell from the poor quality photo. It had the original 400, 4-speed (converted to an automatic transmission, but still with the 4-speed shifter!), and 3.90 Posi." CLICK->
Fender repair is complete. Troy continues, "The pictures don't do
the car justice. Aside from the pounds of bondo my Dad and I put in
the driver's side quarter, the car was pretty clean." CLICK->
After Troy sold his blue 1968 GTO in 1987, he purchased this one. It was gray when he purchased it. Troy adds, "It went through several changes over 4 1/2 years. I did some digging and found out that it was originally white with a black vinyl top, and had the rare 2-barrel option on the 400. It was an automatic with a Hurst Dual-Gate shifter. It was gray when I bought it, but I always wanted a red GTO. So after I saved enough cash, I took it to the bodyshop. They stripped it to bare metal, ground out any rust, installed two new full quarters, fiberglass valance, hood tach, and applied the 1970 Cardinal Red paint." CLICK->

This is a look at a 1968 6-cylinder Tempest. This one appears to be in excellent condition with the owner stating that the car had 12,312 miles on it. The car has an automatic transmission. It was offered on ebay in 2005 by a narcotics enforcement team as the result of a drug forfeiture. An Auto Theft team inspected it and it has concluded that the numbers match on the engine but they could not read the numbers on the transmission. The engine does not appear to burn or leak anything. The paint is solid and the bumpers and chrome are solid as well. The interior is very nice, with the AM radio working fine. The rear deck does have some typical sun damage. The car has four all season Motomaster AW+ tires, size P214/75R14 98s that appear to have 90% remaining on the tread. This car sold at an online auction in 2005 with no reserve, and a starting bid of one dollar. CLICK->

Says Steve Lazanas (ls6m22.@att.net) - "I find the site very useful. I have been a Chevy guy for a long time, and now I am interested in learning about Pontiacs."
