Written by Dennis Parus on July 3, 2019 I have owned my 1967 GTO convertible for almost 35 years now. It is an all numbers-matching car and highly optioned, with power steering, power brakes, factory air conditioning, power windows, a Dual-Gate automatic, an AM/FM/eight-track player, a posi, an N.O.S. wood steering wheel (found in a box in the trunk), a tilt wheel, Rally gauges, trunk release, buckets with headrests and passenger recliner, and even a lighted ignition switch.

Written by Patrick G. Nichols on December 1, 2017 Jeff Etchison was a senior in high school in 1974 living in Elwood, Indiana and working part-time pouring concrete. No stranger to the street racing scene, Jeff was currently driving a bone-stock, 325 hp 1968 Chevelle SS396.
