In 1962, Ferrari built a limited run of forty international racing cars that they called GTO's, which stood for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the english translation of which is "Grand Touring Homologated." In 1964, Pontiac came out with a car they called a GTO. Controversy over the name theft continues today. Jokesters of the time claimed that GTO stood for "Gas, Tires, and Oil," which both models used a lot of. Fans and owners of the Pontiac GTO proudly call their favorite car a "Goat" and label their meetings as a "Gathering of the Goats."

This painting is made of oil and acrylic paint on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes varnished and wired to hang.
