The National Parts Depot (NPD) will soon be offering parts for 1964-1972 Pontiac GTO, Tempest and LeMans cars, according to their Website. NPD has been in business since 1976 and currently offers parts for Chevy Camaro, Chevelle and Pontiac Firebird as well as Ford Mustangs, T-Birds, Trucks and Broncos. This is great news for residents of Southern California because now there will be another option to Original Parts Group in Seal Beach, as NPD has a wharehouse and showroom in Ventura, CA.
OPGI, my personal favorite place to shop for GTO restoration parts, just recently updated their Website www.opgi.com (which was already pretty good). Here the details of what they did, according to an email they sent to their customers:

I've been hard at work trying to deliver more relevant content to this blog. I think I've found some really interesting content on eBay.com. Using their Finding API, I've integrated their search results for 1968 GTO cars for sale and 1968 GTO Parts for sale (this just it for now - more coming). The part results are from the Vintage Car Parts category, filtered by keyword 1968 GTO.
I'm going to continue to add more stuff for sale, including new classic parts from top suppliers. Enjoy!
The auction results are in for 2011 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. Muscle cars prices saw a bit of a lift at this year's Scottsdale and overall did fairly well. I've posted the results of Pontiac GTOs that were sold at this year's auction. All prices include the 10% buyer's commission. And like always, Barrett-Jackson sells everything and auctions most cars without a reserve price.
The top seller this year was lot #1010.1, a 1970 GTO Judge Convertible, which sold for $126,500.00. One interesting note, lot #1578, a 1968 GTO Hardtop, sold for $35,200.00. Not bad, but terrible if you consider that the same 1968 GTO hardtop car (lot #686) came across the auction block at Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas Sept 2010 and was sold for $49,500.00! Seems like the seller took a bath on this one. $49.5k was definitely not well bought. Only options like factory Ram Air (which this car did not have) could justify that price, but even that wouldn't make up the difference.
