April 6: GTO and a Cat

Happy Easter and a Good Friday! The CMC (Car Modeling Cat) has been at it again.......


Here she is resting after we finished this beautiful 1969 GTO hardtop in a gorgeous candy apple red. Sometimes we mix colours and cross our fingers about what we'll get, but this was definitely a winner as you can see from this other angle.......


This was a relatively simple build and we are very pleased with how it turned out.

One of my favorite GTO's is the 1969, almost identical to the '68, but without the vent windows, giving it a cleaner appearance. The whole car looks taut, like a real muscle car should. Even though it was about the same length as the '67, it looked much shorter. Check out this real one.......



A friend of my brother's had a 1970 GTO in a boring light green. Not as nice as the previous year, but just as quick, although this guy was ultra conservative when he drove it. Why did he bother, as a plain Jane Le Mans would have worked just as well and been a ton cheaper ("less expensive" is the diplomatic way we would describe it in the car business). Oh well, those were the days.

Have a Happy Easter weekend. First golf game of the season on Saturday. I wonder how much I improved over the winter (lol)?

Until next time.......

  1. Oooh… a boring green GTO, huh. I’ve been seeing oranges, reds and magentas. I think I was able to see one back in high school, but I can’t picture it that clearly. Anyway, being “ultra” conservative while driving is a great practice. Your brother probably loved that car so much.

  4. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but
    I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It is lovely price enough for me. In my view, if all website owners
    and bloggers made just right content material as
    you did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.
