CLICK-> Cardinal Red 1072 GTO owned by Robert Reynard from Jacksonville, Florida. Robert tells this story, "This car was originally purchased by my Grandfather. He gave it to my Dad to drive to school. My Dad gave it to me when I turned 16. Now I drive it to high school."

CLICK-> Adriatic Blue 1972 LeMans Sport convertible owned by Tony. Tony tells us, "I have cloned my LeMans into a GTO. I have always loved the 71-72 GTO because of it's Endura front end. While traveling through Los Angeles California, we picked up a local newspaper and saw an ad for this car. One week later we went back to L.A., fell in love with the car and bought it. It was exactly what I wanted. It has great options which include a 400 4 bbl, automatic, console, bucket seats, power top, power windows, A/C, disc brakes, tilt wheel, trunk light, dual exhaust, and Rally gauges. I get a lot of "thumbs up" as I drive around."

CLICK-> Black 1972 GTO hardtop owned by Wally Wersching from Shelby, North Carolina. This car has some cool looking silver stripes on the hood and paint accents on the front fender vents. Wally has this story to tell, "I bought this car in 1991. I drove to the GTO Nationals in 1992 and won 3rd place in my class. It's always been a driver. It has the original 400 with an Edelbrock 4-bbl and K&N air filter. It gets 17 mpg on the road and with the KYB gas shocks, big sway bars and 15" wheels with 235-60R15 T/As. It loves the curves in the mountain roads. It's fun to drive and I always get a 'thumbs-up' whereever I go. It needs a paint job now but I'll wait till it really needs one. I like driving it too much and with a new paint job, I'll be paranoid about getting scratches on it."
CLICK-> Black 1972 GTO hardtop, left front view. Wally's GTO has a black vinyl top, vinyl body side moldings, Rally II wheels, and chrome exhaust splitters.
CLICK-> Black 1972 GTO hardtop, interior view. This car has a bench seat, column shift automatic, and the three spoke Custom Cushion Steering Wheel (Code 461 - UPC N30). Those are some cool floor mats. Wally tells us more about them, "I found them about 10 years ago in a local junkyard. They were buried under old parts in a '70 GTO parts car and caked with red clay. The white was stained with the clay. It took many hours to get them looking as good as they do now. They were not GM but an aftermarket item from the late 60's early 70's - when GTO was a strong mark and a lot were on the road."
CLICK-> Black 1972 GTO hardtop, engine view. This one has an MSD electronic ignition.

CLICK-> A close-up of the Rally II wheel on Wally's black 1972 GTO. Reproduction trim rings are shiny, while original ones are brushed. This one is a reproduction.
CLICK-> Cardinal Red 1972 GTO project car owned by Keith Rudolf. Keith comments, "Here are some pictures of my Goat from the last time that I was home. It has been sitting on my farm back home since I've been in the Marines. I am planning on moving it down to were I am currently stationed to get it back on the track and rebuild it. Being away from her for so long is starting to break my heart. It has been sitting far too long for such a die-hard Pontiac fan."
CLICK-> Right side view of Keith's project 1972 GTO. This side looks pretty good from here. Looks like a 55-56 Chevy behind it.
