Hi, I have been a fan of the early GTO's for a long time and finally in the financial shape to look at buying one.
I am currently looking at a 1965 and a 1967 but not sure either will work out.

I live in an area where I would be forced to buy in a different state and have shipped to me which is a bit scary.

I look forward to reading the forums more and hopefully be able to participate some in the future..

Regards, Larry

Welcome to the GTO forum !

I vote for a '65.

My 1st Pontiac was a new '69 RA3 4-speed GTO. So, '69's are my favorite year. But, I almost bought a used '65, instead. So '65 is my 2nd favorite.

Welcome Larry! I've just completed a ground up restoration on my 65 GTO so if you have any questions regarding 65 specifically, just let me know. The forum is a great place to learn and share information and has been a great asset to me, especially when I reached a stumbling block on my project. There are many very knowledgeable guys and gals on the forum and it's a great resource for information and tips. Glad to see you are joining the Pontiac nation, we all have to do what we can to keep our hobby alive and new people to the hobby is always a great place to start. Will this be your first muscle car?

AZ Tempest, thank you..I agree the 67 is awesome

big D, thank you

cij911, thanks !

ronayers1965, hey..I am an older guy and in the past did partial builds on a few 60's and early 70's cars. I am not a metal fab guy and no place nor skills to do a ground up. I am more of a hobbyist engine builder. I chose a '65 tri power and there are some things I will need to do to it but for the most part it is a decent driver. I thank you for the offer and will be hitting you up with questions for sure..
I am also a Corvette guy and as it is on the Corvette forums they say post pics or it didn't happen I will get a couple pics as soon as I can. LOL

Larry,
I am a former Corvette guy too, having owned five different Corvettes and completed a ground up on a 75 convertible. Hopefully your car is all there. it's the missing bits that can get really expensive> I too am older now (66), but still have the desire to build cars.

ronayers, we are near the same age. I still work and I am the caregiver for a parent so I have time to only do minor things to one now. The GTO is complete just will need some TLC.

tiretread, thank you. The only 67 I could find in my price range was missing so much I decided on the 65. I like them all though LOL

Be sure to go look at it and drive it before you buy it. I got took and promised a lot when I bought my 67. Forgot to mention but I have put a lot in the car and love it. Is my second 67 to have.
