GTO: Pontiac's Great One

Darwin Holmstrom


 

In 1963 Pontiac's leader Engineer John DeLorean and his favourite employees engineers, invoice Collins and Russ Gee, got here up with an encouraged approach to hold Pontiac autos within the functionality limelight:  bolt a tremendous engine into Pontiac's upcoming Tempest intermediate body.  hence was once the GTO born. via crafty, resourcefulness, and outright trickery the minds of Pontiac controlled to get this rocket into dealerships and out onto America's highways, and to introduce that almost all iconic of yank autos, the muscle vehicle, to the nation’s such a lot discriminating drivers.
 
This is the tale of the GTO, of the folks who made it a truth and a revenues sensation, of these who owned and enjoyed the vehicles. With colour pictures, drawings, and specific stats, this ebook isn't quite a bit the tale of a historical vehicle as an illustrated biography of yank muscle.
