CLICK-> Here is a close-up of the Ram Air components that Jack installed on his 1969 GTO.
CLICK-> Another shot of Jack's Ram Air engine.
CLICK-> Jack shows that one end of the Ram Air pan isn't connected. There should be a warm air duct hose that goes down to the engine.
CLICK-> Warwick Blue 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Barry Buchinski from Boston, Massachusetts. Barry tells us how he got it, "After having one of two children graduate from college, I proceeded to look for my dream car. A '69 GTO hardtop in Warwick Blue, parchment interior, 400, and a 4-speed. I joined our local GTO club, the Poineer Valley GTO Association, in an attempt to find it. I eventually Googled the car spec and found one for sale in Michigan. In January 2007, I flew out to see it and bought it a day later. I then had it shipped to Massachusetts then in March started the frame-off restoration. The car won 1st place at the fall Hemmings Musclepalooza last year. "
CLICK-> Warwick Blue 1969 GTO hardtop, right front view. Barry has rolled down both the front and rear side glass to form one large opening. Hardtops are built this way. Pillar/Posts which were not available on the 1969 GTO, have a vertical post separating the two glass panels.
CLICK-> Warwick Blue 1969 GTO hardtop, right rear view. Barry has installed a set of stock 1969 GTO chrome exhaust tips. He even turned then in the correct direction. Many people turn them to point down at an angle which is incorrect (as far as the way Pontiac installed them).
CLICK-> Nice clean 400ci engine under the hood.
CLICK-> The door is open. Let's go for a ride. There is a debate whether that blue GM sticker on the door edge is factory correct or not. Looks good on this car since it matches the paint.
CLICK-> A shot in from the passenger side looking at the nice clean Parchment seats.
CLICK-> The trunk is bare.
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans owned by Chris Rhodes frmo New Lenox, Illinois. Chris explains, :I restored this car in 2003 and raced it for a few years. I wanted a real GTO so I traded it for a number matching 67." Here is the 1967 GTO he got in trade.
CLICK-> Another shot of Chris's red 1969 LeMans. I want that garage!
CLICK-> Henry Rhodes owns this 1969 GTO hardtop. Henry tells us, "This was one of my many eBay buys that looked decent in the pictures, but not so good when I drove 800 miles to get it. This was a highly optioned car that I sold to the owner of The Parts Place who parted it out."
CLICK-> This car is dented all over.
CLICK-> There appears to be a spare tire under the hood. By the way, that hood doesn't look too bad.
