Hello, new to the Forum-not to GTO's!

Wanted to say hello as I am a new member. I have a few GTO's (all solid project cars) that I have acquired over the years (along with tons of parts). Now that the house is finished and the baby has come, I plan on pulling one out (probably the '65), going through the fuel system, ignition, and brakes and start driving it.

I started buying GTO's a a young age (proceeds from mowing lawns as a kid) and was able to get the following before prices skyrocketed. Remember the days if a running driving, rust free GTO for a thousand bucks?!? Now I just need to start restoring them!

A 65 4bbl 4-speed coupe (orig paint, I'm the secnod owner).
A 67 HO, 4-speed hardtop with 32 (I believe) factory options - also original paint and the second owner.
A 70 350HP 4-spd conv.
A 70 Judge (RAIII-auto).

My other cars include a 68 firebird convertible (Sprint-serious project) and a 96 Ram Air Trans Am (I am the original owner- 42k miles). My daily driver (in nice weather) is a '67 Corvette Roadster.

I wanted to join the forum as it has been years since I restored a car and the up-to-date info and experience is invaluable. I plan on asking alot of questions as well as well as helping others when the opportunity comes up.

I will try to get some photos up when I get a chance. Although two of them are original paint, they have lost all their shine. None of them are pretty like yours look. I dont think any of my GTO's have been in-doors when it mattered. My judge and the 70 conv are in-doors now.
