back in the mid 80's i was spending a lot of time in topeka ks and met a guy with a 71 gt37 455HO and a rear spoiler. it was a black car. tried everything i could to get him to part with it but no luck.

Original owner was a huge NASCAR Richard Petty supporter. Loved a light blue winged car….


Hence the Blue winged GT-37 because he worked for GM in Saginaw.

This is what I like the most. Drives and handles like a 12,000 mile car. With power to wake things up! Cruising with the wife around town.

That's a real beauty, Mike. Looks fantastic with the Rally IIs and Wide Ovals.

You still have that Canyon Copper HO? I remember admiring it closely at the Co-Vention in Dayton.
