CLICK-> Victory Red 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Jeff Bjorkman from Coeur d Alene, Idaho. Jeff tells us, "I bought the car in 2001 from a young man just getting out of the service that needed money. He obviously realized that he didn't have the resourses needed to restore the car. My sons and I spent three years frame-off restoring it. We were looking at various kinds of cars to restore, T-Birds, Mustangs, Chevelles, but when I saw the 1969 Goat I knew it was the right car even though my wife and sons saw a pile of junk. It is non-stock in; paint color (1989 GM 'Victory Red'), the 1968 Hurst shifter because the kid had it and it was cool, and the seat upholstery. We showed the car as much as we could in 2004 and got a lot of attention between the seats and the paint which I did myself. The other non-stock item is the 455H.O. which helps it haul a**, like a good goat should."
CLICK-> Jeff is behind the wheel of his Victory Red 1969 GTO hardtop. In this photo, you can see a collection of old gas station memorabilia. There is a sign from Conoco, Shell, Standard and Exxon. You can also spot an antique pedal car and an "Interstate 90" sign.
CLICK-> Jeff has a custom seat design. Jeff explains, "The upholstery guy I use for my work trucks has extensive experience with custom cars. He mentioned that, if I didn't care about stock, to use cloth instead of vinyl. He also suggested doing something to lighten up the inside. After thinking on this for a while, I enlisted my older son, who is a computer graphics geek. We took a digital picture of the old, beat up bucket and started playing with designs on the computer. We finally landed on using the original 69 stitching pattern 'Y', bringing in some light gray which helped the darkness inside, then added the body-matching red 'Y' which is the eye grabber."

CLICK-> Matador Red 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Rick Smith from Colleyville, Texas. Rick shares, "I had the car since 2000. It was originally a Pennsylvania car. It's a 4-speed with a fairly stock 400 now and has an 8.5 inch 3.42 Posi rear end. It was originally Verdaro Green but three owners ago it was media blasted and painted the current Matador Red."

CLICK-> Gold 1969 Custom S owned by Jimmy. Jimmy tells us about his purchase, "I just got this. I needed another car like I need a hole in the head but this was just too nice to pass up. I'm not even sure what to do with it at this point. I plan on leaving it stock. The A/C works and so does the original AM radio works. I have the Protecto plate, manuals, jack and spare tire. The interior is perfect."
CLICK-> A shot down the side of this gold 1969 Custom S. This car has either been stored forever or recently redone.
CLICK-> Gold 1969 Custom S hardtop, interior view. this interior is in remarkably good shape. I mighta bought this for no apparent reason too. I agree with that guy that it's one of those cars you spot and "gotta have" because of the exceptional condition.
