The June 2016 issue of The Legend features “Black Beauty,” Dave Saneman’s 1965 sport coupe, which he ordered new from Scott Pontiac in Bel Air, Maryland. “I reckoned it had to be light and fast, without a lot of options—my budget was tight,” he says. Dave’s GTO retains its as-built 389 4-barrel, close-ratio four-speed and Safe-T-Track 3:55 rear, light package and sport dash with full instrumentation. Dave performed a frame-off restoration following retirement from the local police department. It was finished in time to enter it into Concours-judged class at the 2013 GTOAA/POCI Co-Vention in Dayton, Ohio, where it earned a Bronze Concours award and an Original Owner award—and survived the infamous storm-caused outdoor tent collapse with nothing more than a bent radio antenna!
Also in the June issue: “Convention Corner 2016” with Milt Vine; “Quarter Mile With The Judge” with Frank Fregiato; and “Super T-10 Transmission” with Steve Schaeffer.
All this and more in the June 2016 issue of The Legend, the only national automotive magazine devoted exclusively to Pontiac’s Great One!
