From GTO’s To Corvettes: The Muscle Cars I’ve Owned By Frank Golino

By  | 

It’s not unusual for us to get examples of readers rides, but it’s more unusual for us to get the full rundown of somebody’s complete muscle car history.

This is the case from one of our readers Frank Golino who shows us the various muscle cars he has owned and worked on through his muscle car life.
The thing is, he’s given us a task to do as all the images were taken of the cars from the 60s to the 80s and in the good old days of film photography, as some of us can remember, in many cases when it was click and hope for the best!
So, we had a touchup job to do on each of the images and the results you can see below.

These images are ‘warts and all’, as you see them. They are not part of a photo shoot, but people’s memories, shot as enthusiasts at the time, rather than photographers.
Just remember these images are over 40 years old!

My first car, 1968 GTO. 400, turbo 400 trans, 390 rear. Photo taken 1973.


My 1967 GTO. I bought it with no engine. I dropped in a 1966 389 three duces, I picked up from a friend of mine. Turbo 400 trans & factory 433 rear. Photo taken 1975.
