The 1968 Pontiac GTO was an engineering marvel at that time. Although the original GTO will always be known for creating the muscle car genre, no other car defines the muscle car era better than the 1968 Pontiac GTO, which won the Motor Trend Car of the Year that year. Pontiac had a difficult task to follow in 1968: to come up with a muscle car that can compete against their rivals. But Pontiac’s engineers rose to the challenge, and the 1968 Pontiac GTO came out as a brilliant mix of beauty and brawn. Even though it has undergone some styling changes from its earlier siblings, the car still manages to keep its aura intact.
