Thanks, guys. This is all interesting stuff!
The folks I bought the GTO from were a young couple (to me, early 30's is young) from Salt Lake City. They bought the car in Idaho and had it shipped east when a job transfer brought them here. They told me they got the car in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, from a GTO restorer named Rod Hollen. I had some questions about the non-original engine with 6X heads and emailed him ages ago for info but think the email may be defunct as I haven't heard anything back.
Goat Roper, my Stude was a LA built car sold new in Redlands, CA by a dealer named A.C. Almind and they now sell Nissans under a different name. The Stude had the black tags when I got it and the guy I sold it to wanted them along with the license frame, etc. I can't believe I bought two CA cars in a row and have never been to CA.
I appreciate all the info.
