1972 Pontiac GTO - Golden Opportunity

Mike Marx Jumped At The Chance To Preserve This Ultra-Rare Shadow Gold '72 WW5 455 H.O. GTO'S Rich HistoryOnce you've been bitten by the "car bug," there's little that can cure you. Thankfully, there are ways to help with the symptoms, one of which is buying Pontiacs. Mike Marx, of Port Orange, Florida, was afflicted as a young teenager. "I was just drawn to Pontiacs and I bought my first one when I was 18," he says. For the next 30 years, Mike continued to collect them. He's owned two '68 GTOs, two '69 GTOs, a '68 Firebird, and a '701/2 Trans Am, among others. When he had the opportunity to purchase this rare WW5-optioned Shadow Gold '72 GTO, he already knew its history and had to have it.
