CLICK-> Imran's 1969 GTO can make some smoke!
CLICK-> Imran's black 1969 GTO hardtop has a 455ci engine under the hood. Imran tells us, "I have had this car since I was 17. Dad got me this car in 1987 and I have had it ever since. This is the first time it has been on display. I took it to Norwalk, Ohio for the Ames weekend and it ran its best there at 11.87 at 115 mph."
CLICK-> Dale Drinkard got this car from a guy who had it in a barn for many years. Dale says that this guy has got a convertible in that barn too that he'd like to get. Dale adds, "It's a bit rusty, doesn't run, interior shot, but the body is straight with no body filler. My plans are for a frame-off restoration. It's pretty well equipped with hideaway headlights, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, front disc brakes, and the original powerplant. It will probably be orange with black interior."
CLICK-> Looks like these pictures where taken the day Dale picked up his project 1969 GTO.
CLICK-> Yellow 1969 LeMans owned by Joshua Wickam from Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. We enjoy seeing cars like this during their "development" stage. Joshua had this to say, "This is my first project ever. Although not perfect, I am proud to say it was a learning experience. It only has the original 350, but I added a mild cam, intake, and carb; plus the little stuff like oil pan gasket, oil pump, and engine mounts. Inside I added new carpet, headliner, seat covers, stereo, and a B&M shifter. I also added Flow Master exhaust 40 series, and some gigantic springs! I didn't know that I would have such a high lift on those, but I plan to add some bigger meats. This car is far from done as you can see. It still needs body work and paint."
CLICK-> Cameo White 1969 Custom S sport coupe owned by T. O'Brien from Dryden, Michigan. The Pontiac Custom S was only built in 1969. It came in 6 body styles. There were only 7912 2-door sport coupes made. How many are left and in excellent condition is not known. The owner had this story to share, "It was 1978 and I needed money for college so I had to sell my first Pontiac Custom S 2-door sport coupe. Little did I know how rare of car I had. Well, after 22 years, with futile effort for the last 10 years, my wife finally found another Custom S 2-door sport coupe on the Internet. The sport coupe has the pillar/post. It was a Thursday night and immediately I knew I had to have that car. I called the number listed and after speaking with the seller I told him “Don’t Sell Her, I will be there Saturday morning.” The car was 550 miles away and I was so excited by the time we got there I had to control my emotions. After I thoroughly inspected the car, it was in better condition than I had dreamed. It had 45,000 original miles on it. The interior was perfect and the exterior had only a few minor flaws. Most importantly there was no rust anywhere and the car was all original with matching numbers. It was time for the test drive. When I pulled out and stepped on the gas I had goose bumps all over. There has only been one other time I had been affected that way, it was the time when my lovely wife walked down the aisle on our wedding day. Needless to say, we bought the car and the rest you can say has all been fun. I truly enjoy explaining to people what our car is. To this day we have not seen another 1969 Custom S at any car show. My wife and I joined the Pontiac Widetrackers in spring of 2002 and have attended a couple of meetings. What a great bunch of ponchos they are. They all enjoy their Pontiacs as much as my wife and I enjoy ours. We are really looking forward to the upcoming events the club has going. The moral of the story is “Don’t ever give up looking for your dream car because you never know when your dreams will come true.""
