The Ultimate Pontiac GTO Picture Site
Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick signs a Valve Cover Racer at the GTOAA 2004 International Convention. This racer was made with rollerblade wheels on it. Arnie commented on how heavy it was. The valve cover races were held while a 40th GTO birthday bash party was going on Saturday night.|
CLICK-> This is Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick's orange and white 1966 GTO race car. The front end comes off. This is a wicked racecar with some nice fabrication. Everything is shiny and clean.
CLICK-> The driver's seat in Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick's orange and white 1966 GTO race car is right in the middle of the car. The brake pedal is way off to the left and the accelerator pedal is way off to the right. Just two gauges on the dash - neither of which are speedometer or tach.
CLICK-> Arnie's got one beefy looking "Moon" accelerator pedal. Don't want to break this. This heavy duty apparatus has a large diameter accelerator cable attached to it.
CLICK-> Arnie's got a very basic (but padded) orange seat in his 66 GTO beast. This car is built for speed. The only luxury item in here is the little piece of carpeting!
CLICK-> Here's a shot of the underside of Arnie's 1966 GTO race car. Can anyone fill us in on the technical specs of this setup?
CLICK-> Purple 1967 GTO hardtop with a black vinyl top and redline tires mounted on Rally I wheels. This car was parked on the parkway that leads to the host hotel at the GTOAA International Meet. Was anybody confused by the fact that there were THREE Marriott hotels in the same place? There was the Marriott host hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott, and Residence Inn by Marriott. Some people got their reservations confused.
CLICK-> Black 1967 GTO convertible. This one has a Hurst emblem on the trunk lid. It's also got bullet hole stickers on the rear tail light panel. These stickers are great for covering little problems with the paint. This car, however, does not have any problems with its paint. The car is parked on the hill that separated the swap area from Centerpoint Parkway. Most of the show cars were lining the length of the parkway. It was closed to thru traffic. There was one lesson I learned at the show. DON'T EAT THE COLD HAMBURGERS that were served up by the hotel's sidewalk vendors. They were serving cold hamburgers and hotdogs on several days. These tasted like they were made up several days ahead of time. After a while, people learned to not buy them. But - at the fancy birthday party dinner on Saturday night, what do you think they served? More cold hamburgers and hot dogs! Bleah. At least the birthday cake was good.
CLICK-> Silverglaze 1967 GTO hardtop with Redline tires and Deluxe hub caps. The showcars were parked along the road which leads to the back of the GM truck assembly plant.
CLICK-> Silverglaze 1967 GTO hardtop, from the other side. That's the Pontiac Michigan GM Truck assembly plant in the background. While walking down the road to admire the cars, there would be the sound of an occasional train whistle. You could see flatbed traincars loaded with stacks of truck frames. They would roll down the tracks along the parkway.
CLICK-> Red 1967 GTO convertible Go-Cart. I've seen a beat up one on eBay a few years ago. I think that one was from an old Go-Cart track at an amusement park. This one has tiger striped seat and steering wheel covers.
CLICK-> This black 1967 GTO convertible was parked in the swap area during the 2004 GTOAA Internation Convention.
CLICK-> Black 1967 GTO convertible, right side view. This one has red pin stripes, redline tires, and Rally II rims. Is that the coolest tiger ever?
CLICK-> Here's the dash of this 1967 triple black GTO convertible. This car is protected with The Club. This one has a Dual Gate Hurst shifter, power windows, air conditioning, Rally guages, and a Custom Sport steering wheel.
CLICK-> Keith MacDonald took this picture of a Blue 1968 GTO hardtop with a black vinyl top and redline tires. It was sitting next to a nice looking 1967 GTO hardtop.
