Restored 1968 Pontiac GTO Best Present Dad Could Ask For
A lot of the classics that are cherished and collected today are the same cars we or our parents used to drive daily. It's that nostalgia factor that drives the market for classic cars and, at times, inspires some of the most thoughtful gifts we can think of. In this case, it's a son surprising his father with a restored 1968 Pontiac GTO for his 60th birthday. Apparently, the patriarch of this family bought a green '68 GTO when he was just 16. He and his wife would come to use it as their daily driver. After seeing some old photos of the car, their son decided to track down and restore one for his father.

The green 400/350 horsepower GTO, complete with a black vinyl roof, is the result. The birthday boy is clearly and understandably blown away by what must be the best present he's ever gotten.
Now, this lucky 60 year old has a fresh connection to those fond memories of his first car as well as a gorgeous, sorted classic muscle car to have fun with. The only problem is, every birthday from here on out will be a major letdown.
