I wondered some time ago where a certain GTO converted 328 was now....

and now I know, I saw it today :thumbsup:

It's really very nice. Superbly done, and being made even more superb at the moment.

and Carl told me all about it :thumbsup:

I asked ages ago if there was any more info on this car - but none was forthcoming.

Are there any contemporary articles about it?  Maybe we can get neon boy to write something about it - it's only after a lot of drinks that it's really come up... :p

Well, bodily, it looks about perfect. Currently, the engine is out, but looks ready to go back in.....

I think it will surface sooner rather than later....

Just back from holidays and going through the 7 pages of unread threads and came across this thread. It was my car, I have not been all that keen to talk about it, as some time back I made a post about it on Fchat and received some unkindly comments.

If there is interest to hear about it I may post some info and photos, I have an album of the whole conversion by Jim Carpenter in the US which took nearly 2 years.

Phil, who is doing the current work, I heard he was doing things to it, do you know what is being done.

Yeah - I uncovered some other stuff including some nice papparazzi shots of you - but it was all media crap and deleted it.

Would be good to hear the real story.
