Ascot Silver 1973 GTO sport coupe owned by John Foland from Ravenna, Michigan. John tells us more, "This is an original 30,000 mile GTO. It has a 400 cid engine with a TH400 tranny. The car is a low option model. The beauty rings were the only add on. It has a bench seat and an auto on the 'tree'. I purchased the car from an individual in Connecticut. I left Michigan on Friday night the 2nd of December and arived Saturday around 6 pm. I loaded car up into enclosed trailer
and headed back to Michigan around 10 pm. I came into a snow storm in Pennsylvania when we were on I-84 heading to I-80. We were in a snowstorm all night. I finally arrived back at garage 8 pm Sunday night to unload the car. Once back, the car was repainted the original Ascot Silver as the original paint was dull and scratched around the nose. Installed a 1966 tri power and #16 heads on the original engine. The car had 255-15 tires on the front and 275-15s on the rear. Other than that, the car is original. It is believed that this car spent its time running street races in N.Y. where the car was originally purchased. I have most all documentation on this low mile car. I am the 4th owner."

Florentine Red 1973 LeMans Sport Coupe owned by Greg Carter from Lower Cape N.B. Canada. The LeMans is pictured next to a small bridge that must have been built the same year as his car. Greg tells us, "We saw the car on the web six years ago . It was in Greenville, South Carolina. My wife and I jumped on a bus and went down South. We bought the car and drove it back." CLICK->
Greg Carter also has a black 1973 LeMans. Greg tells us about this car, "I bought this one 11 years ago  from my wife's uncle's boss, from Belleville, Ontario. It was a plain jane Ascot Silver 6 cylinder. I changed some body parts, added the Nasa hood, Rally II wheels, buckets, a console, swapped the motor for a 307 Olds, did some patching to the floor and trunk, and made patch panels for the lower quarter panels."

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Gene Bragalone (gbragalone.@yahoo.com) - "You seem to need to addresss three diferent main reader types and you do it well. The "original" fans, the "Just get by" group, and my favorite, the folks who like to look almost original but like to have it perform well so will do things like scrap the junk ignition and ... install different distributors."
