My brothers both had respectively a '67 GTO and "69 GTO Judge. Nice cars. I had the "Family Truckster" A 1967 Ford Country Squire station wagon with a few modifications. 390 Cleveland V8, 4 barrel Rochester Carburetor, Straight pipe exhaust with straight Thrush mufflers, Hurst inline shifter, Keystone mag wheels and blacked out glass. It moved but I had to keep 4 bags of sand in the back in order to get the right amount of traction.
You could also carry eight people in it or have a place to crash if you couldn't make it home on certain nights.
Ah yes: The good old days of real premium gas and a 14 second quarter mile.
