43 years ago TODAY! (12/14/72)

It was 43 years ago today that I purchased my beloved 66 GTO from the original owners that ordered it new.

Since then, it has been.....

Driven daily for 4 years,

Driven on weekends only for 3 years,

Stored in clean, dry and safe storage for 34 years,

Undergone a full off-frame rotisserie restoration for 16 months

AND been to various Car Shows and Cruise-Ins for 12 months.

It has won each time it has been entered!

Here is a photo taken shortly after I purchased it 43 years ago.

Yes, that's me in the picture.
