1999 GTO CONCEPT CAR. We've got a whole Lot
dedicated to this car.
Kev Staalesen sends in these scans of original "factory press kit photos" of the new
1975 GTO that never was. It strongly resembles a '75 Buick Apollo, but with GTO badging..
You say there is no such thing as a 1976 GTO? You are right. But the owner of this
car decided to create one out of a 1976 Ventura.
1980/81 dealership created Grand Prix GTO? This picture was taken in the New York area
by Eliezer Perez. I believe this car was created by Napoli Motors
in Milford, Connecticut. They are a Pontiac new car dealer that also carries a
selection of classic cars. They have a web page at http://www.napolimotors.com
A website viewer Drew Bickford has a little more information
about these unusual dealer-created "GTO"s. He says; "I was looking at the wrecks
section and saw you had a couple pictures of a 1980 something Grand Prix that had a
GTO makeover by a Connecticut dealer. I grew up in Connecticut and became a die hard
GTO fan in the '80's and remember seeing one of those cars at all the local shows.
I looked back and found a picture I took of one at a big local car show we had. I
then found an old copy of Cruisin' News from the Connecticut Cruisers Car Club that
had a story on one such car. It has a good picture but it's black and white. The text
says 'Back in 1985 and 1986 a Southern Connecticut Pontiac dealer was adding some GTO
decals, a Firebird rear spoiler, dual exit muffler and blacking out the grills on Grand
Prixs. All the cars were equipped with two tone paint, 305 4 barrel engine and rally
suspension, they called it a GT Option.' I'll try to send you the pics I have when I
can get them scanned." CLICK->
This might be a 1980/81 Dealership created Grand Prix GTO. Take a look at the words next
to the GTO emblem - "by Napoli". Eliezer Perez says that Napoli Motors in Connecticut may
have been the one to "custom" make this car.
Stephen built this 1975 Judge just for fun.
Take a look at this concept model car! It was done by Steve Derezinski back in 1957. Stephen tells us more,
"As a teenager I was entered the General Motors Fisher Body Craftsmans Guild competition for car design
in 1957. The car I entered had the distinctive split grille of the Pontiac line that was introduced about
1959. I did receive an honorable mention for my design, and I would like to think that it was, at least in
part, inspiration for the split grille that has been the Pontiac symbol ever since 1959. The Fisher Body
Contest for car designs was a source of many of the "looks" that GM produced (Corvette Stingray, for
example, was a Guild winner.) After all, it was a survey of the "car buying population" that was due to mature
in 5 to 10 years. Who better to query about what look of car they wanted? It was a clever marketing
technique, I think. Top prizes were college scholarships." CLICK->
John McMahan shares with us some old concept drawings that were displayed in a Pontiac
dealership. He thinks they were drawn in the 1960's, but I think they were more likely
drawn in the 1970's. John tells us this, "They were displayed in a Pontiac Dealership
in South Florida. There are nine drawings total. They are all originals. The measurement
of all the drawings are the same 27-1/2 X 19 inches. They are all framed, but two have
no glass anymore. They are drawn on a very fine paper, almost like tracing paper."

How about a set of GTO water skis? Ahh - these are made by Gladding Hedlund. They made water
skis and kneeboards, among many other watersports/recreation items. The B.F. Gladding Company
is a New York company in the village of South Otselic. They are the oldest and largest fishing
line manufacturer in the United States. At one time they expanded into the International Gladding
Corporation. They made many other sporting goods items such as rods, reels, lures, outdoor
clothing, toboggans, water skis, travel trailers, mini motor homes, truck campers, inflatable
boats and canoes.
I bet you didn't think you could get your own GTO skateboard. It's even got
white lettered tires.
I bet you didn't know Firestone built a GTO bike! Here is a gold one. It has the banana seat and
long handlebars. See how the rear fender is cut and flared up high? The fender is designed for
wheelies! Close-up of the Firestone emblem on this bike. Firestone also made a "Miss GTO" bike
for the girls. I spotted one at the 2004 GTOAA meet.

These bikes came with Firestone tires!
1975 Grand Am with Can-Am type stripes. It's got rear side window louvers and
white painted Rally II wheels.
1977 Can Am advertisement says "Created in the Trans Am tradition".
This is a white 1977 Can Am hardtop. It has square headlights and is one of
1,362 produced. This 1997 photo was emailed in by Anthony Paccione. Anthony
tells us, "I GAVE the car away to a local mechanic in Brick, NJ after
trying to sell it at Raceway Park, in Englishtown, NJ. It was not running
and no one bought it. I even had the price down to $700, still no bites." CLICK->
