Already have a copy, Lynn, thanks. Know where it is but my decimal system isn't as handy as Dewey's. Bit of a pack rat, I guess. Thanks for the link, though. Good to give it another read.

Some cool notes from old Goat/Pontiac tests here:

Congratulations Tenney! That is a great GTO!

I am too young to remember that car back in '64, but I was there when Bill Sherman and Milt brought the car out in the late 80's and when these photos were shot (my husband Bill owns the turquoise and white '69 ).

I wonder if thats the GTO that Wangers used to sucker guys with...they would tool around to the cruise spots or hang outs and sucker guys into races...what they would do (Wangers) was get them to bet against a bone stock GTO and pull the "HOTTER" one out after they made their wagers...this story was told by Wangers himself....

I was not around back then, but have heard that story several times. I seem to remember the cars being "white" and a later model ('66 or '67), but I'm not sure. I'll ask my husband tomorrow

Thanks, Rita. That RAV is one of my all-time favs - have a cool scale replica of it. Cars look okay side-by-side, don't they?

Yes, they do

Bill has them next to each other in his display case (these are models he built years ago)

That was a pair of white (with black vinyl top) '67 GTO's that they did that with.

No doubt this '64 GTO is one of the most significant cars of the Musclecar Era. Not only was the GTO the original American musclecar (some Mopar guys may argue), this '64 GTO put a young magazine, Car &amp; Driver on the map.

Tenney,

That is a 1:24th scale model that he built.
