    John Z Delorean and a few Pontiac officals one afternoon back in 1963 took a basic Pontiac tempest and put it on the lift and talked about what they could do to make this car a real muscle car a car with a lot of horsepower and torue a car that could be ran at the drag strip and pull in some fast times and give other car manufactures some competition in the showrooms and on the streets plus have a reputation that everyone knows well on that afternoon they decided to drop in a 389 V 8 and a 4 spd manual transmission with a posi traction rearend and call the basic tempest a new name a name that would get around fast and that name was GTO a car that would soon dominate the drag strips and the drive ins and streets like many other muscle cars its about muscle and the capability to go fast Pontiac didn't stop there with every generation of the GTO the car just kept getting powerful as body styles changed and engines were re engineered and customer preferred packages improved with every car however the pricing would also increase on every new GTO that Pontiac would sell although Pontiac management was against selling a factory hotrod John Z Delorean and Jim Wangers seen to it that the Pontiac GTO in the earlie stages was built behind closed doors in an unknown studio they had to be very careful of taking the car out so that other GM employees didn't see the car on a test track but when Pontiac finally gave in the GTO was a popular car not just in everyday life but on the big screen a GTO appeared in the Movie Two Lane Black Top and the Daytonas sang a song about the GTO called Hey Little GTO the car like many muscle cars had there ups and downs but the GTO was an icon a car that will get Pontiac fans and enthuists talking for hours reminecing about the good ol days when they saw the first 1964 GTO in the Pontiac dealers though there were drag racing teams from Pontiac dealers that sponsored cars on the strip and when those GTOs won it was good for Pontiac sales I love the history of GM and the company that builds the best cars and trucks and the GTO is one of those sought after muscle cars that every GM diehard fan wants in there collection or for a weekend cruiser or for that matter a drag racer for the weekends at the local drag strip though the GTO went from a 389 V 8 to a 400 V 8 with ram air in later years but it was still the best muscle car amoung the other muscle cars of its generation

    A very worthwhile read for any gearheadAn encyclopedic look at the ultimate American two door muscle car during its 14 production model years this book is full of facts opinions and gorgeous pictures There's even a bit if drama with good guys bad guys and fools It leans toward enthusiasm but with a healthy vein of journalism and some uestionable economic analysis but that's not what you'll be reading forI grew up mostly Mopar and have almost always lusted after plain wrapper B bodied four door bench seated sedans and wagons with large powerful engines than for showy A body muscle and pony cars But even I could never completely miss the allure of mid 60's GTO's and reading 'The complete book of Pontiac GTO' deepened my appreciation of this fine automobile
