    They should have a couple Noble's in stock and the 250 GTO should be on the main floor. Please take lots of pictures if you go!! :)

    it doesnt matter where you register your car. My sister lived in Utah then moved back to CT and never got new CT plates.

    MA gets real upset if it finds you driving a car registered to you in another state & your driver's license says you live in MA.

    YUP, it's the same car. Here's a link to KTR's info about it:

    http://www.ktrmotorsports.com/html/racecars10_1.html

    Believe I heard that the GTO's owner has a residence in Maine, but KTR stores & maintains it for him.

    It is indeed a beautiful car. It's also believed to be the last unrestored GTO. The paint is a bit tired, some mild checking. The owner vintage races it & often takes it for a weekend. It's been at the Museum of Transportation's Corso Italiano a couple of times.

    Car is not the GTO here. Ours has NY tags and does not attend Concours for the most part. The car pictured was probably registered in Maine for tax purposes. The Bush family lives in Maine, maybe its theirs?

    And owned by a woman who actually races it at Limerock Park. I saw her last race at the Vintage Festival Weekend in September, she was such a pro dicing it up with the Aston Martin. It was the highlight of the whole weekend for me. I have some pics of her pulling into the paddock after that race.Ill try to post them tonight.

    Hi Guys,

    The car in the pictures from Concorso Arizona is 250GTO s/n 3607GT. This is Rob Walton's GTO (of Wal-Mart fame). He does not live in Maine, although he may have a residence there, but that is not where the car is kept.

    The GTO which is being associated with KTR and raced by 'a lady' is 250GTO s/n 3647GT. This car is owned by James and Sandra McNeil and is often raced by Sandra. The car is completely original, unrestored, and has been owned by McNeil since 1967, the second longest GTO ownership ever. This car is registered in New York (since that is where the McNeils live) and is not the car in the picture. So two different cars, but both are original GTOs. BTW, the McNeil car s/n 3647GT was also at Tutto Italiano in 2004 and the Castle Hill Concours in Ipswich in 2002.

    The McNeil's car is RHD as it was originally sold to Maranello Concessionaires in England. In 1962 it was raced fairly extensively by soon-to-be world Champion John Surtees.

    You'll notice that the car in the Concorso Arizona pictures is LHD. That is because this car was originally sold to Ferdinando Pagliarini in Italy who raced it extensively. It was also later raced under the Ecurie Francorchamps banner in Belgium and France.

    I swear I saw this car driving down 1A on long sands beach in York, Maine last summer. I heard something coming down the road so I turned and my jaw almost hit the ground. I’ve been telling people about it ever since... I actually think some of them don’t believe me.
