This Goat runs on LP! It is interesting how everything is hooked up on this car which resides in The Netherlands. Richard explains the Liquid Propane gas setup on his Pontiac, "The engine bay is a bit of a mess, but I will sort it out. That big hose on top of the air cleaner and that strange drum on the right are for LPG, which is a lot cheaper to run than gasoline over here. I'm working to remove it. I want to experience those 350 horses!" CLICK->
Let's peek at the interior. It looks basically stock, except for the steering wheel which the owner mentioned. CLICK->
This is Sheldon Hamilton standing in front of his Endura Delete 1968 GTO hardtop. Richard Rossin Jr. took the picture and commented, "I snapped this photo of Sheldon Hamilton at the Wisconsin Dells car show that's called Automotion in May of 2005. Sheldon is holding the then current June 2005 issue of High Performance Pontiac Magazine. He's holding it open to the four page feature article about is car, a chrome nosed 1968 GTO he's owned since 1976. The article is named 'Chrome-Nosed Confidant'. His car is one of 2,108 GTOs made that year with the optional chrome nose." We have a few other pictures of Sheldon's car on the site.

Aleutian Blue 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Paul Kurrasch from Webster, New York. Paul tells us more, "My Dad had a 69 convertible when I was eight. I had to have one! I picked it up last year. This car was just what I was looking for: Aleutian Blue, white cordova top, white interior, automatic transmission (with Hurst shifter), AM Radio, 8 Track Player, Hide-a-Way headlights, LH Remote Mirror, Rally II wheels, Clock, power steering, power brakes, tinted glass, air conditioning, ride and handling
package. The paperwork was amazing. For some reason the original owner from Lakeland, Florida ordered this car and had it delivered to Jack Haupt Pontiac in Clarkston, Michigan. From there it was shipped to its new home in Florida for the next 30 years. With routine maintenance performed at K-Mart (tires and exhaust systems) it looks like the car was well taken care of until about 1988 or so. From there the paperwork and maintenance is less clear until the gentleman I bought it from picked it up. From what I read, I believe I am the fourth owner." CLICK->

Mike Smith just picked up this Carousel Red 1968 GTO hardtop. The body and paint needs some work, but the interior is flawless. Mike adds, "It runs great, fun to drive, its my first GTO, and I'm hooked. I have lots of plans for the drivetrain, plus a repaint." CLICK->

Click on this thumbnail image to get the full effect of this paint! This is a metalflake black 1968 GTO clone hardtop owned by Jeff Reichel from Palmer, Alaska! Jeff tells this story, "My older brother had built back it in the mid 90s in upstate New York. The car was extensively redone but now it's showing some signs of neglect and wear. Believe it or not, it was painted OUTSIDE in an open barn! It does have most all of the correct GTO parts on it, except the tail lights. I just found out that the LeMans tails were different than the GTOs. I'm surprised they weren't changed out during the build. He even put a 69 Judge wing on it for good measure. It needs a couple interior pieces but overall it's in pretty decent shape. The metal flake clear coat is still amazing after 10 years. We get comments every time it's driven. The car was transported to my younger brother down in Arizona during the summer of 2004 after our older brother passed away in his sleep at 42. My younger brother is not much of a car guy but still appreciated having it in our brother's memory. Over the last few years has paid WAY TOO MUCH $$$ getting some things fixed on it. He has driven it way too much for a 40 year old classic. He even commuted from Maricopa to Scottsdale for about 6 months in it, screaming down I-10 at 80 MPH every day. His company recently moved him to Madrid Spain for a few years and the car has set in his garage since August. We've decided that instead of having the car set MORE and deteriorate further, we will have it shipped up to me in Alaska. It should be here in May and I will be able to start giving it some MUCH NEEDED TLC." CLICK->
