Three years ago my son and I drove to Nebraska to buy my first GTO. I was specifically looking for a 70-72, green project that wasn’t going to break the bank. We had a great time. The car turned out to be more work than I anticipated but it’s getting closer to paint and may see the road this year. When I get done more time I’ll start a build thread. I have tons of pictures on my Instagram page also. I use the same name on Instagram.
Just introducing myself as a new member. I have attached a picture of my 1967 GTO just after picking it up from the paint and body shop where I had the new paint done. I bought this car when I was 16 off the showroom floor. I wanted something different than the Mustangs and Chevelles that everyone else had. This GTO was it. Still love to get out and drive it although I don't drive it as much as I did in the early years.
That's the short story. Look forward to hearing from others.
Good morning! Im restoring my grandfathers 1966 Catalina and needed some advice from the people down around Phoenix AZ. There are a couple of rust spots right behind the front wheels that I need corrected, headliner, rear window rust spots and id like to get the whole thing re-painted in the original Reef Turquoise. I was looking for shop recommendations. This car is my baby so I obviously value trustworthy places down here that will treat my car with the same level of care that I do. Being relatively new to the area I appreciate any advice you can give on places to avoid and places to seek out! Thank you!
Hi I’m new here, I’ve been sitting parking on a 1974 Pontiac GTO for about a year. I got it running for the first time in about six months yesterday after I rebuilt my carbs. I have two Holley 600 on a tunnel ram intake. I also replaced my point distributor with an HEI. The engine I have in the car is a 1975 firebird 400. The issue I’m running into is the car idles great but when I give it about half throttle it bogs down and stumbles like it’s gonna die but when I take my foot off the gas it reeves back up to the proper RPM and idles fine. Any advise? I assume it’s something amiss with my ignition system or my carbs.

I just noticed this loose-feeling wire and electrical connector on my 71 Lemans, and I don't know what component it goes to. It's on the passenger side under the hood, right in front of the wipers.
My windshield washer isn't working atm, so I'm thinking this could have something to do with that.
Thanks for any help!
