I was over a friend of mines house today to rummage thru his garage for 70 GTO parts that he no longer wanted and GTO buddy was kind enough to let me hold this very special magazine. This magazine issue is what started the whole muscle car era rolling. To Pontiac car guys, this might as well be the bible. An American car laying the smack down on a top of the line Ferrari? What a ringer this car was and the article put the names of John Delorean and Jim Wangers on the lips of every red blooded American in the 60's. I was truly honored to hold this orignal piece of Pontiac and muscle car history in my hands today.

Looking well read ;)  

Truly one of best "races" that never happened. 

Could you imagine attempting to write an imaginary comparison test/race between two cars that never met at a track in today's electronic society.

I have always wondered what if they did indeed get the chance to run side by side, likely be a whole different story.

None the less Legendary stuff for sure.  

We were honored with an invitation to be in the GTO display at the 2014 GM Nat's with the '65. We did not know the '64 was going to be there. It came in right after we had been parked. Scott fired her up, backed her into place and man did she sound good.

What a Great weekend we had!

Great legendary stuff here... thanks 360Rocket and SPRINT6 for posting!

It was a loose/loose situation for Ferrari, probably why they wouldn't supply a GTO to C&D.

Thanks for sharing guys. I have been fortunate to be invited to Scott's shop before, in Portland MI. I was there when the Stan Ancoler '63 SD Lemans was just brought to his shop before it was restored. So I got to see it in all of its rough glory. I've posted on the Stan Ancoler car before.

Scott does fantastic work, and he has an idea for the smallest detail.
