I wanted to start a thread where we post our best childhood gto memories. I have a few. one that comes to mind is when my dad had a 66 gto, tyrol blue 4 speed. It was not a daily driver but was also not a show car by any means. One day my dad was at work and my moms car would not start. My baby sister was sick and mom needed to take her to the doctor. My mom had never driven the beast before and actually hated the car. She loaded all 4 kids in the car and headed towards the doctor office. There was very little gas so she stopped at the gas station. She was not doing well with the 4 speed as far as my 10 yr old opinion percieved. that was back in the day when gas stations had guys come to pump the gas for you. The guy pumping the gas told my mom: Nice car, if you ever want to get rid of it please let me know. Mom said you have a better chance of him selling you one of these kids. I was ok with that as long as i wasnt the kid being sold.. As she pulled out of the gas station she reved the motor a popped the clutch and lit the tires up...by accident cuz she could not drive the 4 speed for nothing. when she did that i got goose bumps and looked back at the guy that filled the tank and he was pumping his arm. Moms exact words when it happened were " I hate this fu$%*ing car..My other memory was when my dad loaned the same car to my uncle and it came back 3 days later....completely totaled on the back of a tow truck. That was the end of the 66 and the start of my gto addiction.
