Sale of the GTO will help fund the great programs for young men at Rawhide Boy’s Ranch
By Darrel Burnett, Executive Director of The Automobile Gallery
This past Saturday’s running of the 147th Kentucky Derby is evidence that the month of May is off to a very fast start with the promise of getting neck snapping fast as the month tapers to a close.
As much as I love and admire horsepower in the four-legged form as beautifully demonstrated by winner Medina Spirit in the Derby, I’m an even bigger fan of the horsepower that launches four wheels.
With the weather getting nicer and nicer with each passing day, those horses are itching to get out and run too!
One of those thoroughbreds left the barn this past Saturday morning at 9 AM when the 609-horsepower 1965 Pontiac GTO, owned by our friends at Rawhide Boys Ranch, was loaded on the transporter headed for the Mecum Auction in Indianapolis May 14th – 22nd.
Though we’re sad to see it go, we’re happy that the proceeds from the sale of the GTO will help fund the great programs for young men at Rawhide. I’ll be watching right along with a national television audience that day and rooting for the GTO to attract a huge number before the auctioneer drops the gavel.
