The March 2015 issue of The Legend features the late Gerald Wrohan’s “Tale of Two Goats”—his 1968 Solar Red GTOs, a hardtop and a convertible. Both these beauties were frame-off restorations in 1988. Jack hailed from Canada’s British Columbia Province, and back in the day, Canadians had to special-order a GTO An interesting aspect of one of these restorations is how Jack duplicated the factory’s method of installing the Endura front bumper for a good fit: “With the front clip and driveline installed, they jacked the front of the car up with the jacks positioned on the frame behind the front wheels. This forced the nose to ‘droop’ so the bumper could be snugged up to the fenders, and when the car was lowered, the bumper was fully tightened in location. We painted the bumper off the car and used this technique. It worked great.”
Also in the March issue: “Convention Corner 2015” with Paul Freese, representing the Pontiacs of Southeastern Indiana, which with the Indy GTO Association is co-hosting the 2015 GTOAA Nationals in Columbus, Indiana; “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Popular Vote But Didn’t Think to Ask,” with GTOAA Convention Popular Vote Coordinators Bob Alexander and Tom Szymczyk; “What Might Have Been,” with Roger Lachele; “Outlaw Run Beyond the Book Series, Part 9,” with Jim Weicherdling; “Still More Memories of Hurst Performance,” with Dennis Kirban; “Little GTOs” with Tim Sickle; and “Muncie Trans Oddities,” with Steve Schaeffer.
