So, I have a rather unbelievable story about the GTO which transpired yesterday. We are in the keys on det and one of our pilot's came up to me and asked if that was my GTO that he had been seeing parked at the base? I replied that it was and he proceeded to tell me that he had one just like it years ago (which I hear frequently). He said his was the same color and a convertible. We talked about my restoration for a while and he stated that his was also an automatic HO car. He said he painted it red, I still didnt think much of it until I said that I had just located the correct carb for the car and he said that he had replaced his with a Holley. That's when I got a bit curious and asked him where he had the car? He said California but I sold it to my Brother in law in North Carolina. I said that is getting closer to home, he said that his brother in law sold it to his father in Virginia and I was intrigued. Long story short he owned the car from around 1987 to 1997 and helped to explain a lot of things about the car. He explained that the passengers seat was stolen the day before he bought the car and thats why my headrest was black. Also that the right fender was blue under the paint from a fender bender which I had noticed. Anyway I sent him a picture of me shaking hands with the guy I bought it from and he said that was his brother in law and his son, He said he has a lot of old pictures of the car and may even have the original window sticker which he got from the previous owner. He also said his brother may still have the original carb, radio and 8 track player somewhere in storage!
