So I had to leave work early yesterday...

...to deal with this. Minor damage to both of my 67 GTOs. Rough day for sure but glad I keep them in neutral as the damage would have been much worse.

YIKES. You were lucky indeed. Very nice looking garage, and nice looking cars, from what I can gather. Post some pics of your cars!!! Good luck with all the repairs....looks to be minimal. I never park mine with the e-brakes on, either. Owning a couple of classic GTO's can be a real pain. I feel for you.

Yeah, I let the 20 year old live. Still regretting that one... Thanks for the compliment. I inherited the blue one from my father and have owned the green one since 1999; when I was 17.

The blue one is nice, too. Very nice. It's just that you don't see very many Linden Green '67's.....they all got repainted Resale Red. Always liked the Linden Green on a GTO....understated and classy, IMO.

Sorry about what happened! You're a very strong person to have allowed the drive to escape while still breathing...

Oh I would have much rather they hit the 24 inch maple tree they missed by about five inches. But going to the clink would have been a bad call, too. But when I saw the minor damage and thought about how much worse it could have been I calmed down a little.

Glad everyone and everything (except that garage door) ended up Ok.

Opposite thing happened to me once in that my GTO rolled backwards into the garage door. Funny how you remember where every scratch came from. I've got a ding from my daughters bicycle to take care of this spring. I have an understood rule that everything stays five feet from the car but somehow it still happens.







I agree that you have a couple of beautiful GTO's there too!
