I'll fire the first shot in this section I am a fan of the old school pontiacs and would love to hear from the "older" crowd!
My first goat was a 1965 GTO ( I really miss that car) and I'm going to build up a drag car based on the old school , just dont know what car just yet.

From one Old-Goat to another........

I love the classics. 1966, 389 tri-power coupled to (if my memory serves me correctly) a Borf Warner T-10.

If I'm not mistaken they had muncie 4 speeds (close ratio).
close and wide ratio

I would love a '65, but I don't have the $$$ just yet.

My list of cars I want is too large that I'll probably just stick with what I already have.

I am a big fan of the 1970 cars. I have had several, and would love to get another one, but I can't comprehend the prices, I guess I had better stick with the corvettes for now.

New Member, Love the Classics

What a cool site to stumble upon! :cheers I currently own two 65 GOATs. One is a nice 389 tri-power in Mayfair Maize with a 4 speed. The other is a "I'm never gonna get it done" drag car project that has moved with me to 3 new houses! Was looking at the '04 GTO but local dealers wouldn't budge on price. They are wacked and will be sitting on cars this fall! I got frustrated and spent some money on some go-fast goodies to my '02 GTP instead. :D

GoToIt maybe its something about the 67's and younger people.. I'm 19 and just got a 67 about 3 months ago. Though mine doesn't drive like a dream (yet!) I got it for a steal and couldn't resist. Okay so this is going to sound stupid, but personally I think its better to buy them cheap and restore them.. It makes you love the car 20x more.

BrownEyes, I agree there is something to be said about restoring your own. There is the pride of "Yep, I did that" but that depends a great deal on your own personal abilities and your bank roll. It can be very costly even if you do all the work yourself. Having others do it for you can be wildly expensive. Good luck with your new old car. I am partial to the the 66 but the 67 is a fine car as well. You don't see too many of the old ones around, at least not here, and they sure turn heads. And putting the pedal down is GREAT!

Way back when...

In early 1969, my buddy bought a scratch-free '67 Goat, black with an immaculate white interior. About 22,000 or so miles. He paid $1,500 cash to the parents of a guy serving in Viet Nam.

To keep up with him, in August 1971 I bought a silver 1970 Judge from dealer in Arlington Heights, Illinois, and paid $2,990. 32,000 miles, silver exterior, black interior, no hood tach and a missing rear Judge decal. Lent it to my brother on his last day of high school and he spun a rod bearing, which cost some 450 bucks to fix because the dealer reneged on the warranty. Sold it in 1972 to a private party for $2,000 cash. I wept as it drove away.

There is always AMES from Mass. They produce parts the same as Year One but are a fraction of the cost. Performance Years is another good spot to look. They will sometimes have NOS parts. Then the other two as discussed is OPG and Year One. I have a hard time buying repo parts when I can find the originals, cheaper than repos, on EBAY.
