Poppa was stationed in San Francisco 64 -65. San Diego 65 - 66. He got the GTO in 65 from uncle Jerry's dealership up in Oroville. I remember him always telling the gas pump attendant, "fill her up with Ethel".
She was a 4-2-2 car. 389 V-8, 4 barrel carb, dual exhausts, 2 speed powerglide transmission.
Most likely one of the first GM COPA builds. He specifically ordered this car with custom paint and stripes. The paint was an exclusive color for Corvettes called "Classic White".

He didn’t say exactly where in down town Los Angeles it was…..I lived in California when Ronald Regan was the Governor….Hubby stationed at Travis AFB….It was the most beautiful state… Clean, safe, no drugs or homeless on the streets…It was incredible…You couldn’t pay me to live there now…It has been destroyed by the Governor…..Taxes are horrendous, water shortage, rolling black out, hills are on fire….Orange county multi million dollar homes burned to the ground yesterday…Homeless under every overpass, snatch and grab, drugs…It is awful…
