Pearl white 1974 GTO getting some more air at the Finals at Norwalk in 2002! I visited this modern facility in 2002 and enjoyed it very much. Norwalk, Ohio is home to the Tri-Power Nationals sponsored by Ames. This track has everything; stores, restaurants, camping, nice showers, and bigfat ice cream for a DOLLAR! They're practically giving away the ice cream, what a deal! I plan to attend this event every year. CLICK->
Vintage photo of a green 1974 LeMans that was owned by Mike Tidaback from New Jersey. Mike sold his 1967 GTO for this car in 1985. Mike describes the LeMans, "It was a 350 2-bbl car with factory 4-speed and a bench seat. I sold that car in 1991 or so. I never have seen another one like it. It was a plain LeMans with the 4-speed. Rare. It had AC, manual steering, AM-FM radio, and power disc brakes. It also had a tach and gauges in dash." A picture of Mike's 1967 GTO can be seen in our 1967 Parking Lot. CLICK->

Sunstorm Yellow 1974 GTO owned by Dion Longworth from Indiana. Dion tells us this story, "I purchased this car in 1997 from a used car lot for $400. All it took to get it running was to get the starter fixed for $100 and a new battery. It has run ever since, but is going to need a lot of body work. I recently replaced the leaf springs with new ones, next is the carburetor." CLICK->
Here's a peek inside Dion's Sunstorm Yellow 1974 GTO. It's got a manual transmission and a bench seat. CLICK->
Chad Edgeworth is working on this 1974 Ventura. Chad tells us, "I traded a friend for this car. It was my sister's boy friends car when she was in High School. I was in seventh grade. I've had it about three years, rebuilt the 350ci motor, and started taking off some chrome to do some body work. It runs great, but I just found a cracked head." CLICK->

Says Mike Whyte (bonvivant2000.@hotmail.com) -"How much time do you spend per week working on your site? It's like a frame-off GTO restoration, but you don't get all greasy."
