CLICK-> Let's look at the dealer window sticker. An extra $79 got you the optional 400HO engine. This was a $3565 car when new.
CLICK-> A silver 1967 GTO hardtop with a black vinyl top.
CLICK-> Under the hood was 4bbl engine with air conditioning and tiger topped air cleaner.
CLICK-> A white 1967 GTO hardtop with extra custom pinstripes.
CLICK-> The front end of this white 1967 GTO hardtop had scrolly pinstripes.
CLICK-> Side view of this white 1967 GTO hardtop.
CLICK-> Dual Quad 1967 GTO convertible with a white interior and white top.
CLICK-> Red 1967 GTO convertible, right rear view. You can see Bill Bolin's dual blower 1970 GTO in the background. See that rectangle white box in front of Bill's car? I thought it was a computer graphics glitch - a white box I accidentally made on the picture. After close examination of the original, I found out it is a back of a sign marking one of the popular voting classes. All national shows should have these signs. They guide the public when they're making their popular voting choices. Seeing them, the cars get parked by category, and it is easier to tell which cars to write down on the voting forms.
CLICK-> This white 1967 GTO hardtop had a Ram Air engine under the hood.
CLICK-> Right rear view of this white 1967 GTO hardtop.
CLICK-> Sean in a pedal car demonstrating his new method for doing a burnout. First you block off the front wheels so the pedal car won't accelerate wildly through the crowd. Then you fake it by drawing on very fake smoke with Photoshop computer program.
CLICK-> This is a brightly painted 1968 GTO convertible. It is yellow with a parchment interior and white convertible top.
CLICK-> Yellow 1968 GTO convertible, right front view. This one has hideaway headlights and the optional passenger side mirror.
CLICK-> Yellow 1968 GTO convertible, right rear view. Instead of the normal exhaust exiting under the rear bumper, this owner decided to use splitters coming out behind the rear wheels.
CLICK-> Sean Mattingly sits inside his Cameo Ivory 1968 GTO hardtop. This car got several improvements since the last national show. It now has a different passenger side fender, a non-rusty trunk lid, repainted spoiler, Flowmaster mufflers, and ceramic coated Ram Air exhaust manifolds from R.A.R.E. (Ram Air Restoration Enterprises), a new Pro-Tork mini starter, and a passenger-side mirror. See the dashboard tiger? It has a lot of miles on it. Then, in the Spring of 2007 the car got another improvement. Here's what Sean wrote to the members of the GTO Email List:
Whaa-hoo! I finished up the installation of the Hurst Line/Loc tonight. It's fun being able to lock up the front brakes and do burnouts anytime! During the install of the Hurst Line/Loc I learned this stuff:
(1) No wife will get up and help you bleed brakes at 1:30am.
(2) Don't pump the brake pedal with the master cylinder cover OFF unless you want a brake fluid fountain spraying all over the engine compartment.
(3) Don't forget and tap the brake pedal when a brake line is off the side of the master cylinder. Geyser-time!
(4) If a crusty old brake line requires more than two adaptors on the end, throw it out and get a new piece of line that's already made with the right fittings on each end.
(5) A Mity-Vac vacuum tester is also a great one-man brake line bleeder.
(6) While working around and under a car, I can find at least six different ways to accidentally spill a tall bottle of brake fluid. Hit it while reaching for a wrench, drag the trouble light cord over it, smacked into it with the corner of the creeper, kick it to the other side of the driveway while getting dirt out of my eye, etc.
(7) A car with hideaway headlights has the perfect way to get a power wire from the engine compartment to under the dash. Run the Line/Loc power wire through the bigfat hideaway vacuum hose grommet in the firewall. Easy.
On a good day, I fix more things than I break.
