Yep. GM killed it long before it stopped breathing, unfortunately.


We'll be doiing a coffee table book on the C/D GTO in 2013, the pics are just stunning and this will tell the whole history of the car at a point near its 50th birthday. Till then, check out www.GeeToTiger.com, Jim Wangers' website. Jim has been the standard bearer for the Pontiac hobby for decades, and was the original owner of the C/D GTO...

Recent announcements promise wide whites.


Consider that this kit tooling will soon be fifty years old, first announced in early 1963!


The original AMT engoneers were wizards!

A friend's mom when I was in high school had a surf green '57 BA Vert, so rusty you could look through the windshield and see the ground behind the car. That might be a neat one to do...

Just a great kit, one of the foundations of Monogram's re-emergence as a force in the hobby starting in the early '80s.

I did the cover article in Muscle Car Review magazine (August '07) on the Car & Driver magazine GTO v. GTO road test '64 GTO, probably the most significant Pontiac on the planet, and this kit is spot on for every element of a replica of that specific car.

One of the best kits the hobby has ever seen, period.
