Cruisin’ The Coast In A 67′ GTO

GulfCoastWeekend.com

Ricky McCool of Pascagoula, Miss. has always had a love for classic cars. He built his 1967 Pontiac GTO from the frame up after Hurricane Katrina put it under several feet of water. Now, he spends his time at Cruisin’ the Coast each year talking to people like us about what makes this GTO so special.
