My name is Rex & I'm new here & I drive a 73 GTO & I bought it new, well it was a left over as it was a demo because I ordered an SD455 car & it of course never came in.  Here's a few pics of my car. Hope you like it. It will have later this year my new engine in it which is a 469. It is a 4spd. & has posi, with 3:73 rear gears. I run alum E-heads round port RA exhaust to. I have a thing for the Crane RA IV blueprint cam as I've used in in my last 4 engine & just like the way they act.  I put the rear spoiler on it back in 1981 & it's a 70-71 rear spoiler that I had to re-angle to get it to sit right & build up the  stantions to get it to sit level to. The hood tach you see I had put on when the car was new & it has the defroster vent tube that came with the hood tach as it is one that has the vent tube in the bottom of the tach. I epainted the car in 97 in the garage you can see in the background by myself. It is a CC paint & it shines very good even though it is now almost 20 years old. The 4spd. in the car is an M-22 now. The car came with an auto , but as I'm a retired GM service mgr. & I was working in a Pontiac dealer in 89-92 I bought all the parts I needed to put it in correctly. Looking at the car you can't tell it didn't come from the factory that way.  But I wanted a stick in the car & I made it happen. Maybe I'll go back to an auto but I don't think  it will happen.  The car runs & drives as nice as it looks.  Thanks for looking. Rex.
