    The name has to do with the donor car for much of the parts, a 2006 GTO. I guess they won 1st in their class and also "outstanding custom"

    Battery mount is sorta on, still need to modify the original brace/splash shield then move on to deleting the spare tire dimple on that passenger rear fender as well as custom bumpers.

    As I recall, back in the day John Delorean said that GTO stood for "Gran Turismo Omologato" (Grand Touring Homologated), but the guys who bought them called BS and said it's Gas-Tires-And-Oil - "GOAT"! And it stuck!

    Beautiful wagon, and nice work on the '40 too!

    Instead of cutting up the original fender brace/splash shield my bro made a new one that mimics the original. Should do the job.

    Last year we was supposed to start getting my cousins truck out to some shows and that never happened cause of Covid, we helped him get it on the road in about 4 months, he got a good couple months of seat time in, Since he has since passed away my brother is taking it down to its first car show in southern Utah tomorrow. We will get it out to some more shows this year for sure. Such a beautiful truck.

    Sorry for your loss with your cousin's passing, but great that you've kept the truck in the family and can remember him through it's use. Beautiful truck!

    Thanks for the kind words, we'll get my cousins truck out some more this year. In the meantime I really hope we can at least get mine painted this summer, got some schedule changes that will mess up working in the shop but maybe we can figure something out. If I have to I'll take some days off work just to do nothing but body work.

    Man, what a sad deal about your cousin but at least he was able to fulfill that! That part is awesome!
