Highlights, April 2021 Issue, The Legend

Marvin Rettle’s stunning 1967 resto-mod—black with a red interior, took 23 years to retore, including a few false start. But combining his son Jesse’s mechanical expertise with the skills of three excellent shops—Sampson Restoration, Elite Performance, Gear Guys, Frank’s Upholstery and Hot Rod Garage, all near Marvin’s home in the Texas Hill Country just north of San Antonio—this GTO is a show-winner, and a comfortable, reliable driver equipped with four-wheel disc brakes, 17-inch wheels, air conditioning, serpentine belt system, aluminum radiator and electric cooling fan, powered by a balanced and blueprinted Pontiac 400 with a TH400 automatic transmission and a 2.93 limited-slip rear.

Also in the April issue: “Convention Corner 2021” with Joe Morgan and Morgan McArthur; “Cruisin’ With the Crusher (M22)” with Jeff Lovich; “Little GTOs: Poncho Perfection Buildoff Challenge” with Tim Sickle; and “Goats on the Block” with Chuck Catalano. All this and more—classified ads, the GTOAA Club Store, etc.—in the April 2021 issue of The Legend, the only national automotive magazine devoted exclusively to Pontiac’s Great One!
