Spotted on a snowy salty road

Can only hope this is some kind of reproduction and not the real thing. This was taken, (not by me) on one of Ontario's, busiest, saltiest expressways. Why anyone who could afford this car would have it transported on an open trailer is beyond me.

Doubt it's the real thing.

I remember kits that transformed early Z cars into GTO replicas. The rear spoiler looks pretty aggressive compared to the real thing. The door and window frame also look really close to the shape of early Z car doors. The wheels look off too.

Just my observations. No harm or hurt feelings intended. If I'm wrong, I'll stand corrected.

i've never seen a GTO with halibrand-style mags. the picture is blurry but they even look kind of like the campagnolo alloys from an early lambo miura/espada/islero/jarama. unlikely to be a real mccoy on the 400-series freeways

That's funny, Golf73...we must have grown up reading the same R&T's, etc, as I thought both Halibrand and Miura....
