These are some Pictures when my Dad owned the car,
He is always telling me really cool stories about it but briefly he used to work in car design in Ford in Dagenham England. He was really into his Capri's (almost the european mustang of its day) he had a big boy 3L job with this massive black whale tail on the back! It was super cool!
He then went over to work for Volvo Trucks in Gothenburg in Sweden in the late seventys where he met this dude with the 69 gto.. My dad loved his car and he loved my dads Capri so they arranged a straight swap for it.
My dad then had it for a few years completely rebuilding the engine and lots of other parts.
He then came back to the uk, bought a house with my mum and this guy apparently kept knocking on his door asking to buy his car.
he kept turning him away until he proposed to my mum and he sold it to this guy.
Then when my dad was getting the bar ready for the reception for the wedding there was a classic american car show going on in the grounds and he saw it there!
he said the guy had turned it into the green demon and painted it two tone metallic green.
I have always had the pictures he had of this car when he swapped for it in sweden and cherished them as i thought it was so cool!
I uploaded these pictures on a website yesterday and a dude replyed back almost instantly saying ive seen that car on this webpage!!
1969 Pontiac Tempest, Lemans & GTO
scroll down to the 6th car i think... ERT 188 J
I have managed to get in touch with "Dangerous Bob"
He was a young friend of the guy that bought it off my dad and turned it into the green demon, Apparently he has a friend who had a vette in a similar colour scheme.
It now looks like it has been turned into a judge clone and the image was courtesy of Ebay so i am wondering and hoping that it was tee that bought it or advertised it (if it is the same car, there cant be too many 69 judge clones in the uk)
It says on the road tax information online that it hasnt been taxed since 2003?
i hope that this means it hasnt met its death!
Anyways apologies for the mega long thread, im just interested in sharing my story
