New guy - Dream goat in the driveway finally

Hi All,

Can't wait to brag to someone, so excuse me for a minute while I do so...

I've had a lot of muscle cars growing up (too stupid to hang onto any of them). Now I'm retired from the Navy, 3 kids in college and in no way afford a muscle car, or so I thought! My dream car has always been a 70 Goat. I've been drooling over one for the last 3 years and somehow it never got sold. I have tried to come up with the money but just never was able to. In fact had finally given up a few months ago.

Last week was my 48th birthday, and in the bottom of the gift bag was a die cast model of a 70 GTO and a card that said, "Here's you're GTO". I thought Ha Ha, not funny. But at the bottom, a note said to turn the card over and there it was...."You got your real GTO, you can pick it up tomorrow." My wife has been working for the last couple of months at coming up with the money and now I have a 1970 455 Goat sitting in my driveway!

Its completely original except for the color was changed to GM Torch Red a few years ago, extremely clean black interior, numbers matching 455 auto. It needs a little work here and there, but not much. I live in SOCAL and will be ready to take it to "Cruising Grand" next summer.

I've been looking around the GTO Forum and am glad to join you guys...and gals.
