GTO Nationals in Atlanta in 1997
My Cousin Brian Potter and I attended the GTO Nationals here in Atlanta in 1997. He had a 1970 GTO that was in the copper color GM used in the early 70s. It had what I would call a bone white interior with maybe gold colored carpet.
I remember we went to the I-285 drive-in with a bunch of other GTOs on the Saturday night of that weekend. The movie Men in Black was premiering / opening weekend. Either a professional photographer, or maybe a club member, set up a very tall step ladder in front of the screen before the movie started. He took a panoramic photo of all the GTOs that were there.
There were quite a few. I'd guess at least 100 or so attended.
The reason I'm asking is my Cousin Brian passed away of a heart attack at 44 years old on 8/22/08.
We were right near the front standing in front of his GTO. I really wish I could find a copy of that picture. Or maybe if somebody has pictures from the show or from the hotel parking lot.
He had a body shop at one point and restored one or two GTOs for guys that lived here in the Atlanta area.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
