    Are there any 250 GTEs here in the Valley? I've always loved 'em, but never seen one in person... if there are any, do the owners ever bring 'em out?

    Good question. I think the only GTE I recall seeing was for sale about 30yrs ago for around $7k, and looked very tired. At the time, even that seemed way too much for a 4-passenger car that looked so dated. Of course, now I see them as having a LOT of vintage appeal. Actually, I wish I had picked up a 330 America... basically the same car with upgraded drivetrain :) Not many of those made, though. I'd an America to a 330GT 2+2.

    There is a local one in Mesa, and another in Sedona.

    Really? Do you happen to know the color combos?

    Are there any particular events that you know those owners attend every year? Or do they just stay as "garage art"?

    Like I said, I've always loved 'em but never gotten the chance to see one in person, so I was hoping that one of 'em gets out to events at least every once in a while!
