2024 New York International Auto Show Celebrates 60 Years of Pontiac GTO with Special Display

NEW YORK (WABC) — This year, the 2024 New York International Auto Show is set to give visitors a little history lesson in the coolest way possible.

A total of 12 Pontiac GTOs will be featured, from the first to the latest, and many more in between.

Eyewitness News took a deep dive into the GTO showcase.

The display at this year’s auto show is a unique experience for any enthusiast.

“He got hooked on something: the baby boomers, you know, people my age, they came, they were in college, they were in the war, they went to Vietnam, they came home and they bought these cars,” Gary Heicklen said. “They fixed them and that’s how the whole culture began.”

The GTO exhibit offers car lovers the opportunity to see a piece of history up close.

“The GTO is the first performance car, the first muscle car, and over the years this was the body style I fell in love with,” Heicklen added. “Everyone seems to like it.”

The GTO exhibit will be on display April 5-7.

Join Eyewitness News meteorologists Lee Goldberg and Brittany Bell and sports anchor Ryan Field to get an inside look at the New York International Auto Show in our special, In the Fast Lane, on Saturday, March 30 at 7 p.m.
