“G.T.O.” — Ronny and the Daytonas
Pontiac introduced the vaunted GTO in 1964, the same year that Ronny & the Daytonas released the eponymous song “G.T.O.” Ronny (stage name for John “Bucky” Wilkin) reportedly wrote this song in his high-school physics class. An ode to this ‘60s muscle car, the song and its high vocal harmonies praises the GTO: “You oughta see her on a road course or a quarter mile / This little modified Pon-Pon has got plenty of style.”
