  • Bob, there is one, just finished, within 20 miles of me. Reputable shop, beautiful work, just happens to be an Iris Mist 3x2s 4 speed Parchment Interior White top car but too rich for my blood or intended purpose. Owner of shop is related to one of the GTO Association of North Texas folks. Attached are pics of it the last time I was over there snapping pics of a friend's 65 GTO 2dr post car he was having work done on. We can go offline if you want or if we need to so I/we don't get into trouble 'advertising', I don't know if this is taboo or not, just saying there is one available.

    Oh, the hospital ride, I can relate. I have had my 69 GTO since 1976 and brought my youngest daughter home from the hospital in it. Small world. Hank

        • Bob, that Nightwatch Blue is a sharp color and not really that common. I think I have seen only 2 examples of it around these parts.

          Phil/Omaha, Thanks on the Comments. Omaha? I was born/raised in Nebraska, Geneva, about 20 miles South of York off Interstate 80. Our nearest dragstrip was Hiway 41 towards Milligan where our measured lines were painted across the road. About 110 miles away in Kearney was our closest legal strip. Power Tour in Texas? What could possibly go wrong? Between Baytown, Austin and Grand Prairie on HRPT 2016, about 1/2 of it was in Texas. We could figure out a fairly straight shot, about 1500 miles or so and still be within the state, no problem.

            Sure do Bruce. It doesn't go on PT anymore because we take the Cutlass so we take it on the Northeast Rod Run. Click image for larger version

            • Be careful Bob, for some reason classic cars will populate your garage after retirement, so much so a new and bigger shop will have to be built!

                Tell me about it, Dave. We're just about there now. The Z28 isn't even in this pic.

                    I’m in trouble then because the shed was already full before retirement!

                          • Talked to Big Dave last night. We are rendezvousing in Ocala Florida on Friday afternoon April 30 to head out to Allens on Saturday for the BBQ if anybody else is wanting to ride with us.
