The GTA's were the automatic equipped cars, not exactly rare just not as common because back in '66 automatics "were for girls". Of course we eventually figured out automatics could be fast too........ and girls could drive fast cars. An old girlfriend's older sister was married to a guy that raced back in the 70's, he bought her a '69 Shelby GT500 428/4 speed to play with at the track. She was not only a babe but she could cut a better light than 90% of the guys and she could drive a stick about 20 times better than him...... they got divorced. Go figure. Just saw her a few months ago after almost 25 years. She's still HOT! but....... I'm happily married.
