April Gold 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Warren Dale Bickford from Caldwell, Idaho. Warren tells us, "I traded a nice '72 Cutlass for a really rough '68 GTO. No interior, no trans, and a burned out '73 350. The car had been painted flat white and had an Olds rear with 3.08 open gears. I installed a '75 400 turbo 400 with headers, a Summit cam, and an old pb4 intake with a 600 Edelbrock. I built a 3.55 posi. The car ran a 13.99 @ 98 mph at Firebird last year. The entire car was done on a budget - I don't have $8,000 in whole car " CLICK->

Alpine Blue 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Mike Smith. Mike says, "I bought my baby off eBay in June of 2009. I'm 59 and recently retired and this was my retirement present to myself. I've loved GTOs since 1964 and promised myself one someday. I didn't know I would have to wait so long, but kids and college came first. I found her in Michigan and had it shipped down to me in SC. The shipper damaged roof quite severely during shipment and it was really a hassle trying to get them to pay for damages, but they finally did. She has a numbers matching 400/4-speed with 3.55 rear. I love the power and torque. Just going thru the gears puts me in a 1960s kind of mood." CLICK->
