CLICK-> 65 GTO Resto Craig George from the Indy GTO Association is in the process of restoring his 1965 GTO. Craig tells us more, "The engine is a '65 389 being bored .030 over with Crane roller rockers and a Crane cam with RA III specs. It is being done by Nye's Automotive in Muncie, Indiana. Phil Shaffer and my younger son David helped with the teardown and engine removal. The body and chassis are being stripped and primed by B & B sandblasting in Muncie. They are also painting the chassis and rear axle as well as floor and trunk panel replacements and left side 1/4 patch panel."

Says Tom Whirrett - "I work for an auto crushing company in Iowa. I see a lot of cars go to waste. It is good to see people restore them not crush them. Don't tell my boss I said that. Haha."
