It’s Throwback Thursday Highlighting a 1967 GTO
Remember John DeLorean? He designed the GTO for Pontiac (he also had his own DMC made out of ??? – Post Your Comment on the Colorado Springs Over 50 Facebook page).
Most automotive enthusiasts would agree, the 1967 Pontiac GTO is possibly one of the most famous muscle cars ever built. It may just be worthy of the title, “best old school muscle car” ever.
Ask any true automotive historian which classic muscle car is tops and there is little doubt the Pontiac GTO will come up somewhere in the discussion.
The target buyer for the GTO was the single, all-American male in the 18-25 age group.
What better way to grab his attention than with a bombardment of print, radio, and television advertisements depicting the GTO in its tire-smoking, fish-tailing glory? Remember those ads?
This muscle car is a classic and very popular today with restorers.
It will no doubt remain popular for years to come!

Few muscle cars have been cloned and copied as many times as the GTO.
Fortunately, 1966-1971 GTOs all display a VIN that starts with 242.
Anything else is a clone.
