I watch all the Mecums on the Velocity channel. (Love that channel and so does my wife!). Usually only the first day or two of Mecum is interesting to me. I am more into American muscle that I can drive than 100k trailer queens which is the last day's menu. Mecum gets you coming and going. Pay a fee for the privilege of being there, a sellers fee, AND 6 percent buyers premium. I also have a 'm Pontiac Safari and have NEVER seen one of those on there. A few Nomads but no Safaris. Nice poster Bear. Might make a road trip if I can enlarge it big enuf to see the details.

car show

Saw an original tri-powered '61 Catalina on Barrett-Jackson last night. They said it was the predecessor of the muscle car. Pretty sweet.

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...Bear

You mean the late model cars aren't the only GTOs that people have no idea what they are? That's refreshing. It's amusing how many people say they're not "real" GTOs, but similarites seem to abound.

Bear I feel sorry for you, lol. Everytime people see my car they ask if its a GTO... Lol...

BUT since my cars purple a lot of people have asked me if it was a challenger, gtx, charger etc... Doh. Sometimes chevelle. Usaully GTO though which is crazy. Your car IS a GTO, with badges everywhere, lol.

As far as BJ goes, I love the majority of cars that cross the block. I know you see a lot of camaro's, mustangs, chevelle's and mopars but I like seeing them. If I were rich I'd have 1 of each, lol.

I'm with Hot Rod, I like 'em all, just have a favorite brand- Pontiac. Have a great appreciation for the frame-off restored muscle cars, but really have a liking for original survivor cars.

I watched a little Barrett-Jackson today. A 70 GTO RAIII convertible went for $200k. I didn't get to here how it was optioned. I think it had a pretty thorough resto with all the correct stickers and paint markings. I like to watch till I get tired of seeing one LS crate motor after another in just about every type of vehicle.

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.

Nice poster, Bear!

, Pontiacs, including GTOs, are treated like Rodney Dangerfield used to be treated. That is, they don't get any RESPECT at these auctions. I am so sick of the overabundance of Corvettes and Chevelles. By the way, Mopars don't get much respect either. The auction you watched was a rerun. Cheers.

I think the BJ auction you wr were watching was a rerun of last year's event. Like many of you have stated, how many Camaros and Mustangs do we have to see? I have had may muscle cars through the years and I must say that I enjoy taking the GTO to a local show. Before I purhased my '66 tri power hardtop I had spent a ot of time looking for a good '66 Chevelle SS 396. Saw an ad for the GTO and bought it instead. Glad I did. Lots of Chevelles around. Very few GTOs. My car consistently draws more attention than the Chevys.
