SNO GTO

Recommended Posts

My snow bound GTO.  I didn't get her stored before the first snow of the season, but I love the way the snow highlights the grill and the fenders.

Thanks!  I just moved up here this summer.  I almost, ALMOST, sold it before moving but I had spent so long looking for this one I knew I would never find it again, (blue on blue with a manual).  So finally I loaded her on a trailer and hauled her up the Alaskan Highway.  By the time I got here she was a very dirty girl, and I still find dirt in various nooks and crannies, but it has been worth it!  Luckily I get a good 9 months of good weather each year so life is good!

That's great to hear! Great decision to not get rid of her then. Know how hard to find that combination is as I have been looking since 2010 for a good one :lol:

What part of Alaska did you moved to? I've spent some time in the Anchorage / Seward area. I am glad you decided to keep your dream GTO too.

I moved to Wasilla near Anchorage.  So far I'm loving it!

Ok so you are north of town and Elemendorf AFB then...heading towards Denali National Park. You are in Sarah Palin country my friend....woo hoo!!!

I spent most of my time south east of Anchorage, around Girdwood, Alyeska, Portage, and Seward.

I highly recommend you take a charter boat tour of Resurrection Bay some time out of Seward. The wildlife is incredible. Orca whales and porpoises, puffins, sea otters, sea lions, and even bald eagles were all on display when I was there. Beluga whales come into Cook Inlet to feed on the salmon that are spawning in the spring too, so you can often see them at various look out poiints along the Seward Highway.

Trivia fact - the opening scene in the movie "The Hunt for Red October" where the Red October submarine is being towed out to sea was filmed in Resurrection Bay.

That's cool!  I have been down to Girdwood for the summer Hippy craft fair in the woods.  That is some beautiful country, but then again I point out something almost daily to my wife and exclaim "look how beautiful that (mountain/river/valley/forest/random animal) is!"

Thanks for the warm welcome to the group everyone.  I've lurked around the forums for awhile now, but once I had a picture of my goat with snow on her, I knew I had to share. lol

      Hi there,
      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.

      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.

      Hey!
      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!
