This is pictures of a 72 GTO that has been sitting for 17 years in Missouri. I have tried to buy this car a dozen times and finally got it bought 2 weeks ago. It's a 400, 4-speed, p-trac, factory tac all gauges with air, only 1519 made, it has brand new GM fenders still in the box, front valance, rear valance, front & rear bumpers, new chrome moldings, all GM in box's.

Here is a real 67 RS/SS 350 Car. It's in my relatives barn in the Midwest, being stored for the Son of the Original owner. It was only going to be there for a few weeks. Well, 7yrs later it is still there and as usual I cannot get the owner on the phone to talk about the car. The cruddy repaint and stripping effort makes it look worse than it is, it is still mostly there, what a shame.
I am one of the "guilty" folks that would not sell for years, and made all of the same claims about eventually restoring the car...since 1980!!! My dedication to the car never wavered, but my budget situation did not allow for much action until 2002. I drove the car "as was" until about 1989. Over the intermediate years I managed to handle some things, such as body mounts, springs, electrical repairs and purchasing many parts that ended up in the basement. However, the car sat pretty much disassembled from 1990 through 2002. I have completely re-fitted and re-finished the sub-frame and front suspension now. The car is due to go to our local school district's auto body class early in 2003 for completion of the body work. It will still be some time, But this car is no longer rotting! Duke
