Unless the floors and frame are shot it should be saved.

 LOL, thanks for the vote of confidence but more project than this retired parts man is interested in tackling. Besides, a friend brought me his GMC with a work list to keep me occupied for a while! So I better go get at it...

Regardless of Carl's plans this was a great save for the Pontiac community. I hope we all would do the same thing if something like this crops up in out neighbourhood. There will always be some Pontiac guy who will take this back to its former glory, but once its gone thats the end.

And I would add to this, regardless of whether this car is restored, or whether it donates parts to many other cars being restored, both outcomes are good! It's not just ending up at the shredder.

It was funny, when I was pulling it down the Trans Canada at my leisurely 100 km/h a semi with a load of crushed cars passed me. I scanned the load on his trailer as I'm sure we all do and my thoughts were not one car in the mess was recognizable as something that mattered whether it was stripped before it was crushed.

So far the future of this GTO is undecided.
