Letter: The ‘GTO’ in Pontiac GTO


I wish to clear up a name on your Driver’s Seat section of The Lima News on Sept. 23 involving a photo of a 1965 Pontiac GTO.

There was a question what GTO stands for. The answer is Grand Tourisimo Omlegato, which is or was a race in France.

I worked in a Pontiac Dealership in 1950 with my uncle. I became the dealer in 1963 before retiring in 1990 and selling the dealership.
