Just Got My Goat

Just got a 1969 GTO. Only two problems.

One. The transmission is in the trunk. No brakes, no radiator, no starter, no alternator, Engine is neither original nor hooked up to anything; it's actually just chained in. Rust, other missing pieces.

Two. Don't know anything about cars.

On the good side. I love the car; don't care if it is original. Just want to be able to drive it. And I need a new hobby to occupy my life. Plus the car; even though it is a mess is beautiful.

I'll be the first to admit I know next to nothing about cars, but I'm pretty sure that is NOT a Pontiac engine in there

Um; not really sure. To be perfectly honest, the hood has not even been opened yet. I stuck the camera through the wheel well fender area to get these pictures. It is actually the most I have ever seen of under the hood
