Chip Foose and the guys at Overhaulin' TLC show are at it again. This time they start with this tired gold 1968 LeMans 2-door hardtop. This "Overhaulin'" episode first aired the night of 10/18/05. Last season Overhaulin' did Lance Armstrong's 1970 GTO. Click here to see pictures of Lance's car using the Advanced Picture Searcher loaded with year=1970, model=GTO, and owner=Lance Armstrong.

The idea of the Overhaulin' show is to steal a car from its owner with the help of the owner's family and friends. Then the car gets a make over in seven days to the designs of Chip Foose. Here is the team taking the car apart. Unlike some other surprise car restoration TV shows, Overhaulin' usually does a frame-off. CLICK->
Here is the finished car. Chip designed special one-off wheels which have Pontiac emblems as the five spokes. This LeMans now has a GTO hood and a 350ci Chevy (ack!) under the hood. It retained the chrome front bumper. CLICK->

Solar Red 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Pete Stout from Laramie, Wyoming. Pete tells us more, "I had a choice to make - Keep my '98 Mustang convertible or buy a GTO. Needless to, say the Mustang was promptly sold and I went searching. About seven months ago I found my goat in Hemmings Motor News. It was located in Dallas, Texas. After my friends and I got out of class on a Friday (night students at Wyoming Tech), we drove down to pick her up. She is about 95% original; 119K miles, WT engine code, 4-speed, and the left fender was in bad shape due to someone backing into it back in '84. She has been sitting for about 20 years. The car didn't run when I got her, it only took a distributor and a fuel pump. She has the traditional rot-out at the base of the backlight, and the trunk is almost gone. Other than that she is gorgeous. The pictures are from a car show I entered and won the muscle car class due to its originality." CLICK->

This is a Mayfair Maize 1969 GTO hardtop. Josh Doret tells us about it, "My friends and I bought this as a parts car from a guy Connecticut. It was bought new by a Nom Vet when he got home from the war. It was driven daily until sometime in the mid 80's. It then sat under pine trees until 2004. The rear bumper and most of the rear frame was missing when we bought it. Options from the factory were: black vinyl top, Rally II wheels, Rally gauges w/tach, Custom sport wood wheel, remote mirror, HO 400, 4-speed, power steering, console, hidden headlights, and accent pin stripe."
