Why did you get your Pontiac?

At the mention of “Irma” I still shudder :lol: . Good to hear something positive came out of that time! We got lucky here in Naples for the most part. It could have been a lot worse. 

Great deal it sounds like and awesome Bird!

As lots of us hate to admit it I had just gotten married again (ugh) and my new wife and I got into a financial bind. I had a 1964 chevy step-side pickup. I had swapped the inline 6 with granny gear 4 speed for a hot 350, with a turbo 350, tilt wheel, 6 way power bucket seats both sides, and Ice chest type cooler console.. I  had to sell it to help with the situation.  My wife told me then that one day I would have my hot rod back... Approximately 5 years later we were able to start looking for me a car again... She found my 68 GTO Convertible on the internet in Destin, Fl.  It had been restored for this lady by her husband in 1983 and he had gotten killed in the military... She sold it to me in 1995, I think.  I was a nice auto then, but had some rust, a replaced used 400 with a 2 barrel carb. and was skipping.  Someone had ripped her husband off.. They were supposed to rebuild the one that was in it, so it would still be a matching #...I do hate to say it but I am glad she decided to sell it.. At the time I thought I almost stole it... I only gave $10,200 for it... Now I would almost get rid of my wife before I would get rid of my GOAT...
