Well, a guy down the street bought a 65 black hardtop and it was just beautiful, but I was only 14 at the time and really didn't know what a GTO was. Later in 67, a guy bought a magnificent 67 (also black) to my father's service station and I fell in love with them. Later I got my own 64 and 72.

My brother's 74, silver with a red shaker. Had a Pontiac 350. Remember when each GM division had their own powerplants? God how I miss that. This was around 1990.

my gto cherry popped

when i was 12 years old, half asleep on my way to school, It was a black 65, when it pulled besides us it reved up and i was in love. Since that day i always dreamed of owning a GTO. I collected lill die cast GTOs and everything. Then for my 21st birthday back in april i bought a brand new 06 gto and my dream had come true

When I was growing up near Baltimore, a neighbor across the alley had a '67 GTO hardtop, blue with black vinyl top, 400 with a Powerglide. He owned it ever since I could remember.

Last time I was down there, he still had it. Has to have owned it for at least 30 years.

It was in Dundalk. Last time I saw it he had a "67 GOAT" license tag on it. That was roughly one year ago - I cruised down the alley in my '06 and saw it there. He wasn't around at the time.

I moved up to PA in the summer of 99, because I had taken a job up here in January of 99 and the commute was beginning to suck (82.5 miles each way), that was back when I had my CRX which got about 36 to 38 MPG on the highway. I don't get back to the Baltimore area very often, maybe been back 3 or 4 times since I've moved to PA.

It was 1981, I was 17 and my friend Doug just bought a green with a white vinyl top 1973 GTO and it sounded pretty good for a 73. I just remember looking at that cool hood and hearing that motor thinking man I want one of those bad ass cars and a year later I found and bought my first of three GTOs. A 1970 Atoll blue GTO with a black vinyl top and black interior with a 455 automatic! Man... what memories I had in that car. I guess that's why 20 plus years later I bought and I'm restoring me another 70.
