Yea, it was hit in rear pretty hard. so it was either junk yard and parted out or what I am doing with it.
And some of you are already getting some cheap parts that you needed... :-)
The 70 was pretty far gone too..
So I see it as Win/Win

i always have mixed feelings about these builds. a GTO has to die to bring another back to life.
In the third picture, the 70 is a LeMans Sport...not a GTO. So it's not as bad as you thought. A modern GTO get's to live again disguised as a 1970! This just so happens to be my favorite year for the GTO.
If it was my build, I would do something like this (notice the hot chick...even hot chicks dig this GTO):
SLP Underdrive Crank Pulley ~ JBA Shorty's (titanium)
Drive Shaft Shop 1000 D/S ~ Hinson Short Throw ~ Drilled/Slotted rotors ~ Ported LS6 intake ~ Ported T/B
Lovell's 1" drop F/R ~ Whiteline 10mm spring pad ~ KYB shocks/strut
Shaking/vibrating/rattling more is actually a bonus to me. I enjoy the Parkinsons effect at a stop light while the car belches out fumes of unburnt fuel from its monster lopey overlap. To me, thats muscle car.
This part of the build it is lower the body, see where it is hitting, raise it up, trim metal off and REPEAT....over and over again..
I actually think I have the body about where I want it on the 2006 chassis. It looks like I need to cut 7 inches out of back to move the rearend up and add 8 1/2 inches to the front to move front tires forward...
