    I pour my heart and soul into building at vetteXperts and it has shown. In cars like this 1969 Pontiac GTO. What I did to this GTO can be seen here:

    And in a bit more detail here:

    After it was built it sat in a consignment shop for a while before it was sold and then it was sold again. The new owner really likes going to car shows and so the GTO is finally gonna get the attention it deserves. He has been winning trophies..

    I wish that 67 roadster would go to a couple of shows.

    I dug up some old pictures of the GTO from before it was sold just as we were finishing it. Here is why this car keeps taking first place..

    We worked hard to make sure this car didn't have any bad angles. And I don't know why we don't see mirrors under the car as it sits at shows. We certainly gave attention to the undercarriage..

    This whole entire GTO was expertly built by the Automotive Wizard completely in-house at vetteXperts in South Florida..

    And the headlights. They were special and took effort, too. Here is off..

    Marker lights with amber COB LED halos..

    HID headlights(6000k)..

    And high beams are halogen so this car has a functional 'flash-to-pass' capability..

    that's surely a damn nice looking GTO most of us older guys would be thrilled to own and drive!

    If I had it to do over again I would have hunted down and used 45 degree fittings coming off the A/C compressor manifold instead of 90's. This would have put the a/c lines down low with the heater hoses and given an even cleaner appearance..
