1964 Pontiac GTO Car and Driver Test Car, March 1964 Issue

This is the car that many auto enthusiasts peg as the start of the muscle car era, the 1964 Pontiac GTO. But this is not just any 1964 Pontiac GTO, this is THE 1964 Pontiac GTO that Jim Wangers sent Car and Driver for its famous cover story comparing it to the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO and firmly established Car and Driver as one of the top US car buff books of the era, a place it still occupies to this day.

Thanks go to film maker and owner Tenny Fairchild for allowing me the opportunity to shoot this piece of automotive history and add it to my portfolio. It will be the subject of an upcoming book that I am collaborating on with automotive writer Rick Rothermel.
