GTOAA Nationals in Columbus Ohio

The show was held July 3 - 7, 2000. The show cars were situated around the Worthington Holiday Inn, which is a convention hotel. The hosting organization was The GTO Association of Central Ohio chapter of GTOAA. Events included judging of Popular Vote cars and Concours cars. A swap / parts area was next door at the Sheraton hotel. There was a cruise to the drive-in movies on July 4th, a model car contest, an impromptu evening burnout contest, a poker run to the dragstrip, and awards ceremony at the end of the week.

All pictures were snapped by Sean & Mary Ann Mattingly. Thanks to Tracy Kirk for loaning us a Polaroid digital camera.

One night we took our cars over to the nearby Imax Cinema. The building is lit up with neon lights in every color. We got some spectacular photos!

I highly recommend that you join a local GTO club and do a convoy to the national shows. There's no better way to enjoy the GTO cars than with a group of enthusiasts. While traveling, club members can help each other with emergency car repairs. Like the one where my car was misfiring on the Interstate. We all stopped and found that my rear spark plug wire had pulled loose from the plug connector. The plug wire had wrapped around the steering shaft knuckle, ripping it out. All I had to do was re-crimp the plug wire's connector back on. Whew!

On drag day, a GTO owner had a faulty water pump that started leaking. Normally, this is a very bad car trouble to have far from home. But thanks to the GTO guys whom fixed it. They rushed to the auto parts store, then came back and replaced his faulty water pump on the spot. When a fellow GTO owner has a problem, others rush to the rescue...much like GTO paramedics!

Says Spencer - "I can't believe how extensive the information is on the color coding for interior and exterior and the decoding of the VIN numbers. It's great."
