CLICK-> Black 1969 Tempest Custom S owned by Michael Little from Ludlow, Massachusetts. Michael tells this story, "I found this car while looking for a 'donor' car for my 1968 LeMans. After I saw that the frame was in good shape, I decided to restore it. It has a 400 with an automatic on the floor, bucket seats, power top, power windows and power brakes. I added the spoiler as well as the Rally II rims. It took me three years to get it to look this way and I am sure I will never be finished, but that's part of the fun."

CLICK-> Warwick Blue 1969 GTO convertible owned by Asma Chaudary from Wainfleet Ontario Canada. Her husband, Imran, tells us "I have had the car since 1994. It was my second GTO purchase. I thought I could take on the world. But after removing the paint and interior all could be seen was a lot of rust and holes. I just needed to walk away. I got married five years later and, Asma, my wife enjoyed the cruises we did with my first GTO. She asked me later when I would buy or build her one. I then took her to a dark corner where I was storing the convertible. She did not belive that this mess is really a GTO. Well two years later and a lots of hard work, we are enjoying our new convertible. I have upgraded the GTO with a lot of options: power windows, power seat, reclining seat on the passenger side, power trunk, remote mirror, tilt column, under hood and trunk lamp, hood tach, Rally gauges, wood wheel, tint glass, power antenna, 3.55 posi rear, and a 200r4 tranny for the long distance and with classic auto air conditioning. The car is a dream to drive - when my wife lets me drive her car."
