    Default Greetings - My 69 Pontiac GTO

    Howdy,

    My first post here. Introducing my 69 Pontiac GTO. I've owned this car since 1974 when I was attending college. It was my daily driver then. In about 1985 I undertook a complete frame-off restoration. Well, part way through the project "life had other plans" so into storage it went, where it sat untouched for the next 20+ years. Finally in the summer of 2008, I got started on it again. It moved under its own power on October 31, 2011 for the first time since 1985. I did 100% of the work on this car myself, top to bottom, front to rear, inside and out. It's a numbers matching car. I love driving it, which I do every chance I get. It's going on the 2013 Hot Rod Power Tour, start to finish. Best quarter mile to date: 11.86 @ 113 mph.

    Thanks for looking,

    Bear

    Luckily things worked out for you. Good thinking on your part that you kept the car for another day when life slowed a bit. I know the scenario all too well ... I have more than a couple of "projects" myself. Welcome

    Thanks for the kind words...

    If you need an insomnia cure, have some hours to waste, etc. There's a reasonably complete photo record of the project on my web site at

    Default Video Story

    For a club meeting recently, I put together a 15 minute "or so" video that sort of tells the story of the project, and of my history with the car.

    If you're interested, here it is:
