For me, my '68 GTO had to have hideaways. When I started looking about 10 years ago my preference was for a '68 (would consider '69) GTO, with hideaways, and prefereably with an automatic with the Hurst dual gate shifter, and factory AC since I live in Houston. I wanted factory disk brakes, and didn't really want a vinyl top, but would live with or without those.
So when I found my '68 GTO last February and it had hideaways, Hurst, no vinyl top, factory AC, and power windows at a good price I finally jumped.
If it hadn't had the hideaways I may not have been so quick to look, and I'm definitely glad I did.
