Arrow Knomadd's '65 GTO (Royal Goat)

I thought you guys might like to see my first love... My 1965 Pontiac GTO. I've had her since 1998 and have done most of the work myself. She used to be white and had a LeMans 326 c.i.d. 2bbl and 2 speed "Super Turbine 300" paper weight. Power now comes from a 1968 Pontiac 400/TH400 combo out of a Bonneville. I had the trans rebuilt since there are thousands of little parts to lose and I wasn't comfortable attempting it myself. Did the engine while I was in college and swapped it out in my parents garage. here she is now...

Nice GTO. 65's are my favorite year Goat. But then I'm biased towards the old Pontiacs anyway.

Re: Knomadd's '65 GTO (Royal Goat)

forgot to post some pics from the show last fall
2 night shots,a student volunteer keepin an eye on it
and the next day ,of the show

I laughingly told a few guys it only took him an hour and a half to drive it down from Toronto
cause he had to slow down to turn on the 416 after the 401
a couple gave me strange looks and smiled,some said man it must fly

(normally 4-5 hours at speed limit) lol

got a clip on my phone i'll try to post.....

I know that car! Very nice! I've seen it at Tiger Run in Bend, Oregon on Memorial weekend back in about 2000??? I was (still am) a member of the Goat Herd, GTO club of Oregon and went to that show every year since then until I moved to Texas. I was born and raised in Oregon and moved to Texas in 2007 (my wife is from here). I have a pic of it because I love those wheels and wanted something like that before I bought what's on there now.

Re: Knomadd's '65 GTO (Royal Goat)

If you're ever in the mood to take a trip to Bend Oregon on Memorial Day weekend (always the same time every year) you should check out Tiger Run. They have a few events from Friday evening cruise-in, show on Saturday, and drag races on Sunday. Check out http://www.goatherd.com for more info if you're interested.

Re: Knomadd's '65 GTO (Royal Goat)

The A/C low pressure port worked its way loose from the compressor 2 Saturdays ago. Took it in to get it vacuum tested for leaks and to pull the humidity out, then recharge the system. Hopefully there isn't anything else wrong with it.

Re: Knomadd's '65 GTO (Royal Goat)

Nice car, knomadd!

I LOVE the '60s Pontiacs, and I've had quite a few of them. I owned a '65 GTO (389, 4-spd, 3.55s, "K" code paint (Reef Turquoise), blk interior) and even had a '65 LeMans (326, 2-spd, "w" paint code (Bluemist Slate). I bought the LeMans as a parts car for the GTO, but it was too nice to part out so I drove it while I was building the GTO.

I wound selling them both as a package. Great cars, and I still think about those two all the time.

It's called Dark Cloisonné Blue. It's off of a 94 Corvette Grand Sport.

Went to a car show in Damon, TX today. Here are a couple of shots from the show. The GTO won best 60's. Not bad for a small show.
