I'm not sure it would qualify for vintage but it would be a competitive car in NASA racing and I'm sure they are out there.
The cobra took a fair amount of bucks to get it to actually handle and be predictable on the track too!
I got the GTO before I started running road course tracks, and now I am sucked into doing that. So I figure I will be very unqiue with the 1967 GTO running some road tracks. Let's just say with the way its going to look, there will be nothing close to it on the track! It might not handle that great and have to go slower in the turns, and you might be risking you life going over 110mph with it.....but it will be fun, unqiue, and something else to pound on other than the Cobra.
I am looking at getting an actual race car (spec racer ford) for regular SCCA club racing.
Its all for fun though - and a few looks and laughs
Besides...how would you like be driving a BMW 3 series and see that 8 foot wide, 29 foot long, 6000 pound GTO coming down the straight away at you. Big ass "RAM AIR" painted on it, air dam, wing, cold air induction instead of headlights.... i think you'd point me by for the pass
