Trust me - standing next to a GTO (or at least something that looks like one), and chewing gum does NOT get any nice-looking blonds to either a) be attracted to you, or b) make them scared of you (even just a little). ☹️
Trust me my buddy skipped the Gum but had a 64 Goat and back in 1981 got the blond and is still married today and still owned the numbers matching 64 GTO Tri power 4 speed.
At the time they met she had a 455 HO Grand Am of her own.
What gets me now is we had a teacher who had a 911 RS light weight. We used to feel bad for her as she had a 911 that was so cheap it had no carpet! Lol. She and another teacher she dated autocross back in the late 70’s. He had a Fiat X19. We had no idea how special that 911 was. I wonder today where it is.
Seriously they were made for each other. They were both car crazy.
Her father had loud pipes on her GranAm. One night she took off and about a Half mile away we could hear her open it up.
Her father said boys that is why I put those pipes on. It tells me how she is driving. He chewed here out when she got back and wondered how he knew.
Those were good times.
