Car’s make and model: 1970 Pontiac GTO

“I love my car because … my father acquired this car in 1996. It was basically a junk car, and having never restored a car before, he thought the challenge would be a fun project. He spent a few years and many hours searching all over for original parts and completely restored it to stock from the frame up. I worked side by side with him whenever I could. My father passed away in 2007, and since this car was his ‘baby,’ I am taking care of it in his honor and memory, forever.”
