The June 2014 issue of The Legend continues this very special year for the GTOAA, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original American factory muscle car, the 1964 Pontiac GTO. On the cover of this month’s issue is Robert Cupery’s Starlight Black (Code A) ’64 triple-black convertible, which Robert has owned since 1982. The GTO came into his possession in basically good shape—tri-power, four-speed, numbers-matching, and with many options, among them power windows. Robert set about fixing what was wrong (for example, replacing the 1965 seats), rebuilding the drivetrain, and outfitting the GTO with a new top. He credits the Southern California Gathering of Goats GTOAA chapter, and members Dave Anderson, Barry Troup, Carter Chee, and Heinrich Gerhardt, with encouragement and assistance to complete the restoration. Robert’s Goat has the distinction of being photographed by David Newhart for Darwin Holmstrom’s 2009 book, Pontiac’s Great One – GTO.
Also in the June issue: “Convention Corner 2014” with John Owoc of the Greater Pittsburgh GTOAA Chapter; “Cam Selection For Your High Performance Street Engine”) with Steve Schaeffer; “Outlaw Run, Beyond the Book Series, Part 2” with Jim Weicherding; “Memories of Hurst Performance, Part 12” with Dennis Kirban; “NextGen Tech: Happy Birthday” with GTOAA 2004-2006 Tech Advisor Jerry Klaus; and “Little GTOs” with Tim Sickle.
All this and more—and the new GTOAA Club Store, now operated by Custom Auto Apparel—in the June 2014 issue of The Legend, the only national automotive magazine devoted exclusively to Pontiac’s Great One! Happy 50th Anniversary, Pontiac GTO!
