gtos at barratt-jackson scottsdale....

i try to watch the action as much as i can, but for some reason i dont see too many gtos on the block. last night i did see 2 '65 high optioned automatic 4bbl. convertables on the block. 1 went for 50, the other 60. wheres all the tri-power 4-speed hardtops n coupes? dont they get any air time or am i just missing them? tired of seeing mustang after mustang.

Could be either way (no air time or missing them). I watched it for a little while last night and didn't see any Pontiacs either. Many times around here when I take mine to the smaller shows, I'm the only Pontiac there. I've had people come up to me and ask me what it is because they don't know, and they've never heard of the GTO. The only thing worse is having people ask me "what year Chevelle is that?" or "does it have a big-block?". Gets depressing sometimes...

Speaking of shows, I finally sat down and made myself learn enough Photoshop to be able to make my own show poster to use this coming season. Saved as a large format .png file, Office Depot printed it for me on a large format 24 X 36 printer. It's framed, and all that's left is to make a display stand. It turned out pretty decent I think.

If it weren't for Corvettes and Mustangs, there would be be no B.J. or Mecum.

I didn't watch any of it. I believe it was a rerun. I think the problem is 2 fold. Not getting much air time and not many GTOs to begin with. Many times they go to a commercial and I hear in the background that a GTO is on the block. For whatever reason, they don't seem to get any respect. Which is sad since the GTO was basically the first muscle car. I too get tired of all the Mustangs and Camaros. How many times have you seen a Firebird? Apparently, there isn't a big following of Pontiacs.

You can go to Barrett's website and search for all the GTOs.

very cool Bear!

Question about Barret Jackson....... if a buyer buys a car for $50,000... does the buyer owe barret another 5% , or is that 5% taken out of the $50,000 ? I'm just curiou how that works.

I went to a show at the JC Whitney warehouse last year 300+ cars 1 other GTO. Its what I like about it, something different, people like to look and talk to you about it. Before I got this 68 Goat I had a pristine 62 Electra convertible with Crager wire wheels, Wildcat interior with power bucket seats, center console with floor shifter and knee-knocker tach and a souped up Nailhead with lots of chrome. That car got LOTS of attention at shows. Mustangs, Chevelles, Road Runners, Corvettes - you can have 'em. (Well maybe I'd take a vette!)

I like the fact that i rarely see another Tempest Custom, think i can count on one hand, how many nice ones i have seen in the last 5 years that were not cloned into a GTO. At The Dreamcruise this year I parked right on Widetrack drive with the Widetrackers Pontiac Car Club and the guys and ladies loved seeing a restored Tempest for a change. These days it seems that every other vehicle on the block is a pickup truck.

It does seem that pickups are hot right now. A nice change of pace, IMO. Something different to look at. Sure beats another Mustang or Camaro......lol
