Here's some advice for those of you out there using eBay Motors or any other online classified or auction site to sell your classic GTO muscle car. Insert a hot chick in a bathing suit into the main image of the listing. In the original listing, smokymountaintraders got 16352 page views for a nice, ordinary 1967 Pontiac GTO hardtop. This is about 20 times the amount of attention this listing should receive. Will it work? Follow the re-listing to see if it does the second time around. Apparently, the first time around $22,900 wasn't enough for the 67 goat.
I wrote back in October how NPD was planning to offer parts for Pontiac GTOs. I have an update from Derek Putnam, Project Manager for GM Car Catalogs for National Parts Depot:
We’re still adding new products to our arsenal before we release the GTO/Lemans/Tempest catalog. At this point we’re looking at a June 2012 publish date. If you are looking for anything in particular at this point, we already have about 2000 part numbers in stock, so feel free to ask!
So it seems that you can order GTO parts from them. Just give them a call and tell them what you need. I'll provide a more comprehensive review of my customer experience and of their GTO parts catalog next month.
Sold to Mr Ron Pratt, lot #1015.2, a 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible. These cars are rare (only 168 were made). But this one is super rare, as it is one of only 47 YZ coded RAM Air III built in 1970. Final price, including buyer's commission, was $158,400.00.
"Hey hey were the Monkees. And people say we monkey around. But we're too busy singin'. To put anybody down".
Remember that show from the sixties and seventies, The Monkees? If you were kid growing up in the seventies (like me), how could not have seen this show? It seems like it was run, and re-run, 24-7. The Monkees were groovy and had the wheels to prove it... a custom 1967 Pontiac GTO. Well, here's your chance to cruise around town and pick up chicks in your very own Monkeemobile.
