CLICK-> Jeff installs the arm rests, window cranks, and door handles. Funny story: Earlier in the show it started to rain. All Craig's windows were down. I arrived to see some people looking at the car wondering what to do. There were no window cranks in sight. At first we could only find one window crank. So to get all four windows up, you had to move the one crank around the car to all 4 positions to get all windows rolled up.
CLICK-> We didn't quite finish Craig's GTO interior installation, but we got closer. Here it is on display later in the week. Lookin' good!
CLICK-> A close-up of the engine. Craig and his wife Cindy made the display sign. It had an interesting story of where they got the car and how it was restored. In 2007, the Muncie Star Press newspaper did a story with photos of Craig's 1965 GTO restoration. Here is the newspaper story about Craig's resto.
CLICK-> Bright red 1966 GTO hardtop. The under side of the hood as well as most of the engine compartment was also painted red. The engine sported a lot of chrome.
CLICK-> Side view of this bright red 1965 GTO hardtop.
CLICK-> Right rear view of this bright red 1965 GTO hardtop. This car was on display around the rear of the building by the concours cars.
CLICK-> Lots of modifications in here: aftermarket gauges and custom dash panel, aftermarket steering wheel, custom center console with extra gauges.
CLICK-> This is an original W-W code Bluemist Slate 1965 GTO hardtop.
CLICK-> Bluemist Slate 1965 GTO hardtop, left rear view. It has TriPower license plates.
CLICK-> Cragars were a popular wheel back in the day.
CLICK-> Here is the dealer option window sticker. The base cost was $2556 and nearly $1000 worth of options were added. The GTO option on the LeMans cost $295. The Tri-Power engine cost an additional $115. That was quite a deal. Now, it costs more to just purchase a set of new reproduction air cleaners and filters for this engine.
CLICK-> Here is another Mayfair Maize 1965 GTO convertible. This one had the standard 4-bbl carb and wire wheels.
CLICK-> Shot of the stock 4bbl carb engine.
CLICK-> Walking past the cars in the concours judging area, we noticed this nice Teal Turquoise 1965 GTO sport coupe. At this convention, besides looking at cars, there were a lot of activities planned. There was a tour of the Churchill Downs Museum and a cruise to the Woodford Reserve Distillery. Or some people went to the nearby Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.
CLICK-> This car was in the shade most of the time I wanted to get a picture of it. It was nearly the last day of the show when I got these.
