I have introduced myself previously but for those who missed it, my name is Scott and I have been a long time GTO lover and multiple GTO owner. I was introduced to the perfect car by a friend, he had a 70 Judge RAIII .... wow what a car. I got my first GTO when I was 17, a green 68. She was rough and had no motor or tranny which I quickly remedied with a 1975 police interceptor 400 out of a junked grand prix. I drove her daily up to the college years and then sadly parted ways with her due to the high cost of maintenance. Next up was my white 1969 GTO GOD I loved that car, I only had her for a little over a year when she was destroyed by a hail storm. I was unable at that stage in my life to bring a car back from that kind of devastation, so she too was sold. By 22 I felt it was time to try again so I bought a 1972 numbers matching GTO that had been partially restored, poorly. When I got married at 25 my wife made me get rid of her as it was not a responsible vehicle. I should have known that marriage was doomed from the start
That brings us to now, some 19 years later, a new wife, a new life and....my new baby. Marilyn. Rachel, my new wife, decided we needed a "project car" and she loved the 1969 GTO Judge in Carousel Red. We are not independently wealthy so we found the next best thing, a 1969 Tempest Custom S .... in Minnesota. Here she is the day we picked her up.
LOTS A JUNK IN THIS TRUNK!
Here she is on the way to her new home.
So Now finally at this stage of my life I don't need my classic GTO for a daily driver because I have a 2005 GTO for a daily driver WOOT! So, dis-assembly begins...and the restoration is ON!
