How Does Sean Find So Many GTO Pictures? by Sean Mattingly, who has nothing better to do
Most of the pictures on this website were sent in by website visitors. I don't really have to search out pictures like I did in the early days of the Internet.
But if you want to look for some GTO pictures on the world wide web,
here is how: The best way is to use search engines wisely. Start
by visiting one of the better search engines such as google, yahoo, hotbot,
or mamma. In their little search box - enter a couple words such as "pontiac
gto". It also helps narrow the search to more relevant results if you include
the quotes around "pontiac gto". That way you'll only see web pages that
contain that exact wording in exact order. You're sure to retrieve a few
hundred thousand matches on those words. But to find the really neat stuff,
keep sifting through the search results they give you. Yes, that means
you'll have to keep hitting their "next ten" button a lot. Most people
don't bother to look at their second or third page of results that the
search engine gives them. But that's where the really good cars are found!
This is exactly like looking for muscle cars hidden in the bushes behind
an old barn. After you've exhausted all possibilities searching "pontiac
gto", try some variations!
Try them with AND without quotes. Here are some I like to use:
gto picture / gto image / my gto / gto photo / gto car / gto paint / lemans ss / tempest / car show gto / gto racing / jim wangers / 68 gto / 1968 gto / 69 gto / 1969 gto / nice gto / wrecked gto / gto judge / custom s / g.t.o. / ram air / gto museum / muscle car / ram air
Good luck searching the web. Or you can use the search options
within this web site. We have thousands upon thousands of photos,
all organized and categorized. We have the Advanced
Picture Searcher which looks like this:
|The UltimateGTO.com Advanced
Picture Searcher is the smartest car photo search engine in the
Use it to comb through over 10,000 pics of GTO's, LeMans, Tempests, Judges, T-37, GT-37 and others. It shows thousands of photos based on the parameters you give it. You can search by owner name, VIN number, year, view, etc.
Another way to search through photos here is with the Dream Car Picker. It allows you to find only the nice shiny car pictures. The Dream Car Picker leads you through the search process one step at a time. First you pick the year, then pick the model, then the pick the bodystyle, then pick the car color.

Says Charles W. Michel (chariemike7.@hotmail.com) - "I am looking for a hobby car to restore although I have never done this before. This is a great site. I just spent about two hours looking at all the great GTO's. My son and I decided to try and restore one."
