Owner Bio: Doug MesmanDoug, a 54-year-old lawyer, certainly has a few emotional attachments to this '67 GTO. First, it's "identical to the car I inherited, while I was in high school, from my older brother who passed away in 1968 at age 19," Doug told HPP. Second, this GTO was built on his birthday. He purchased it in 1999 and it retains its original sheetmetal and interior. Doug's been racing for 9 years and he says one of his favorite moments was, "My first pass down the track at the Pure Stock races." He enjoys the fact that "my GTO brings back memories of my brother and high school whenever I drive it." It also didn't hurt that the GTO made quite an impression on Doug's son the first time he saw it. Being a prosecutor for 28 years does have its strange moments. Doug said, "My job includes prosecuting street racers [as well as other crimes], which always makes me feel awkward."
