Chris has a 455ci engine with Edelbrock heads under the hood of his red 1969 GTO. It's got a Ram Air pan on the air filter. Look at what's written on the radiator shroud. It says "Daddy's Baby" CLICK->
Here's the invoice for Chris's 1969 GTO hardtop. It's got a 24237 which is a Pontiac GTO hardtop. RR is for Matador Red top and bottom exterior paint. 54 is for the Red interior. Very basic options except for the power steering and air conditioning. CLICK->
Crystal Turquoise 1969 GTO hardtop project car owned by Kevin Davidson from Kentucky. Kevin tells us, "Its matching numbers, all original and very little rust. It had spent about 25 years of its life in a garage. The interior is all original and nearly perfect. It just needs some paint and body work to be a real nice car." Is that a bullet hole in the windshield? CLICK->

This black 1969 GTO has vacuum operated hideaway headlights. This was an option that could be selected for the GTO in both 1968 and 1969. CLICK->
Green 1969 flip-front 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Cecil Barker from Dinwiddie, Virginia. Cecil's wife, Robin, tells us this story, "This is a 69 GTO Jury. My husband got into an accident and crunched the front end. He decided that he wanted to do something different with her. He designed the tilt front end in two months and began rebuilding her. He did all the body work himself. He and a friend painted her (for the second time). He named her the JURY. He bought her in Dayton, Ohio for $800 in 1993. She ran but that was about it. This is one gal that I don't mind sharing him with." CLICK->
Right rear view of this green 1969 GTO hardtop. Nice license plates. Can anyone tell what the saying is that's painted across the back of the car? CLICK->
Dan Carson originally purchased a GTO on February 13, 1978. Here is Dan's new wife, Lorie, holding what used to be a Verdoro Green 1969 GTO. Look closely, IT'S A WEDDING RING! At least they had a sense of humor about it. She is giving us a wink.
Here is young Dan posing beside his Verdoro Green GTO. He sold this car in March of 1992 to buy an engagement ring for the bride, Lorie, seen above.
After losing track of the GTO for over 10 years, Dan was able to track it down and rebuy it. Here is a newer photo of Dan with the same car taken in the same spot. The car was repainted. In this photo, you can see that Dan is older (and wiser). CLICK->
Yes, this story has a happy ending. Dan got his GTO back! CLICK->
Kev Staalesen (firstname.lastname@example.org) in Wilton, New York found this full-page ad in a fashion magazine. It appeared in INSTYLE magazine in March, 2004. Kev says: "This is THE ULTIMATE TAILGATE PARTY!! Now that's MY kind of '69.. and oh yeah, if you look close enough, you just might spot a GTO in there!!"
The ad comes from Giuseppe Zanotti, one of Italy's foremost contemporary shoe designers. Fashion conscious people say that Zanotti simply takes one's breath away with his exciting designs which come alive when placed on a foot. Dreamy shoes for women who love to be women. Since 1996, he has grown his company from 20 employees to 295 employees in San Mauro, Italy. Zanotti has a fine web page at http://www.giuseppe-zanotti-design.com PICTURE SET CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE ...
