CLICK-> The gold pinstripes helped set off an otherwise plain-colored car.
CLICK-> This bumper shines in the sun. The white 1964 GTO hardtop, trunk view. Backup lamps were standard on the GTO in 1964, unlike the Mustang for that year.
CLICK-> White 1960-something Bonneville hardtop. Look behind the car. There's a little pedal car following behind. It matches.
CLICK-> And it's little Bonneville twin pedal car. This toy is in remarkable shape.
CLICK-> The big stylish Bonneville, right rear view.
CLICK-> And the little matching Bonneville, right rear view.
CLICK-> While randomly snapping photos of cars I liked, this one could NOT be passed up! Purple 1965 GTO hardtop owned by Jerry Gardella. This car is purpler than purple. There is also purple-fication under the hood. That a tri-purplified carb setup.
CLICK-> Purplicious! This purple 1965 GTO hardtop has purple accents under the hood. This one has a double spring on the throttle. One is the main spring for the throttle return. The other is a backup spring in case the main spring breaks. This arrangement is good for saving an engine from getting blown due to a busted spring.
CLICK-> Even the exhaust splitters are purple. Purple-riffic!
CLICK-> This is some sweet eye candy. A gold tiger tail is streteched across the back window of this purple 1965 GTO hardtop. He's even got vintage purple 1965 license plates. I wonder if they were really purple in 1965?
CLICK-> Over at the "drag" side of the grounds, I spotted this blue 1965 GTO hardtop drag car. It had all the typical makings of a nice drag car. The tall hoodscoop, the fat tires in back, a rollcage, and a screaming paint job.
CLICK-> This must be the most eye-pleasing shade of blue there is. Look at this 1965 GTO hardtop, engine view. This one has a tripower with a ram air pan so that it can breathe through the hood. The hoses have a braided covering. To save on weight, there are no hood hinges on the fiberglass hood. The hood is held up for inspection by a simple prop rod.
CLICK-> Blue 1965 GTO hardtop, interior view. That's a serious looking shifter. It's got the stock Deluxe steering wheel. There are no windshield wipers on this car; don't need 'em.
CLICK-> It's fun to walk around and look at the drag cars and equipment. That looks like a Firebird painted on the side of this car hauler. It has the typical checkered flag-style floor. People came from all over the country to race their Pontiacs here at Norwalk, Ohio. Even though their cars are different, they all have some equipment in common; a red can of racing gas, a good battery charger, and floor jacks.
CLICK-> Silver 1965 GTO sport coupe owned by Brumo Beltrame from Canada. There was a long lineup of Canada cars in attendance. It's fun to drive to a show in a convoy of cars from a local club.
