Awesome it worked. Thanks

The GTO 2000GS, as a teenager it was on the short list of cars my mates and I wanted. One of the 'cool dudes' in the neighbourhood had one in blue with the rego GS2000. Curiously that rego is linked to a 2000 Land Cruiser today.

Agree a cool car, even today

Forgot, my old '61 Pontiac - looked like this* but rather rougher, tan over chocolate colour and 8x15 American Racing wheels with 255/60-15 Goodyear Wingfoot (later NCT) tyres. Repowered it with a mild Chev' 350 and, IIRC, blew the clutch twice, broke the gearbox six times, the diff twice and split the rear axle once, and it had huge drum brakes that faded badly under even mild (ab)use. For all that, loved the old banger.

These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

ALL of THEM .....

A few mostly for the blast around the park,   >:D

but all the rest would have pride of place in my mates backyard, till I found a factory for storage ...   8)

Love/loved every single one of my cars (30 +) and miss my STUDEBAKER truck (Charlie) even more ...  :'(
Beating up parking wardens ain't a crime.
