CLICK-> After two years of harassing the previous owner, site visitor Jeff has finally purchased this Burgundy 1970 GTO hardtop in August of 2006. The car only had 28K miles. Jeff adds, "The entire car is original and unmolested. This car was only two blocks from the house I grew up in and I never knew it! It's a dream come true! The owner basically drove it on and off the first 10 years and then put it away. I now have it apart and it's getting the lov'in it deserves. This is my second 70 GTO. The first one came and went when I was young and foolish. Not this time!" What do we have hiding in the background? I'm guessing that is a Buick Riviera with hideaways.
