    I believe it is a 1966, not a 69. 66s had the vertical stack headlights and wore the 6.5 liter badges mid fender, 67s were nearly the same but wore the badges on the rocker panel. Good point though. The bare bones driving experience is what is fun about them - I had a 69 (judge) and still have my 68 convert

    That looks more like a '66 GTO than a '69...

    Not a 1969 Goat. Only seat belts are ok to have if the states would keep them optional to wear as there are little cities that have never, in one hundred years, had a vehicular death in their city limits. Air bags can go in the garbage along with the other electronic junk as air bags are more likely to hurt you in a fender bender than save your life in a head on collision. ABS brakes, on average, take more total feet to stop than non ABS brakes on pavement. These results on air bags and ABS brakes are from your beloved government that wants to mandate all the safety stuff but are honest enough to tell you the above truth. The electronic stuff is too hard and expensive to repair and just depreciates a vehicle as that junk quits eventually. I'll take a pre-1974 car any day over a so called newer "more reliable" car as I have been stranded more with newer hard to repair cars than older easy to fix cars. People worry about the reliability of old cars when, in fact, they rarely quit in the middle of nowhere and if they do are moving again in an hour or less with common tools. This has been true for me over fifty years in cars and motorcycles. Have a great day everyone!

    I loved the 64,& 65's more than the later models, and the 69's but, they were all more pleasing to look at and drive and ride in than anything on the road today! Real CARS! BEAUTIFUL CARS!

    What's ironic is these car are still being driven after many decades, without are the electronic junk that costs you a lot to fix. Plus, in a a lot of cases these cars get even better gas mileage than a new Toyota truck with all the tech and gets 12 mpg's if your lucky.

    I don't think the car featured in the 2003 Hagerty TV Commercial is a 69 Pontiac GTO.
