Finally get to see part of the book. Nice coverage of your car. Duncan stayed at my house twice while researching the book. Probably put on 100 miles driving him around Chicago. Still waiting for my free promo copy of the book.

I would like to see your 65 GTO sometime in person,Keith. I liked the 65 year the best. Maybe I'm crazy but some days I feel I could turnaround and be back in the 60s or 50s.

Got a "new" Grand Prix yesterday -

This has been a long time coming. I've put about 10,000 miles on it since I've owned it (got it in Sept of '07).

Congrats Keith. Did it once with a '67 GTO beater I had. Put 100k on other vehicles but they had the million mile odometers so they just kept counting.

Birthday today!

September 18, 1964 = 56 years young.

The GTO and I are roughly the same age (I'm just a tad older). We are both getting a bit "crinkly" but still hanging in there.

Getting close to the last drive of the year; drove the GP over to my brother-in-law's house yesterday and thought his home made a good 1960's ish backdrop.

New to the thread and I just read the chronicles of your family's racing history with Pontiac. What a great story - thank you for sharing!

Black '65 GTO's are my favorite. I owned this one through most of the '80's out in dusty West Texas:

Baby's home.

I got a call from the Gilmore a couple weeks ago that they were done using it for their Muscle Car display.

I went and retrieved it Tuesday of this week, which was a beautiful fall day to do it.

All told it was there from June of 2018 to almost November of 2021. That is the first time the car had ever been out of my family's direct control since September of 1964.
