Re-uniting a 1967 GTO body with frame
A two man crew drops a GTO body back onto it's frame after refurbishment
work. This is a "hobby" restoration.
The video is a time lapse comprised of a series of pictures taken with a
"hacked" low end Canon A460 camera. The camera has "CHDK" updated firmware
which allows scripts, such as the time lapse feature.
The video was put together with Pinnacle Studio 10 which allowed for audio
enhancements as well as intro page and credits. An fun exercise in video

pure american muscle.

70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
Freebie motor I just picked up this weekend! 69 Pontiac 400. Ran but
overheated. Timing cover is junk and water pump rusted solid. It has the
wrong intake but, Hopefully I can build her. My wife really wants a 67 GTO
and I am going get her one if I have to put it together one part at a time!

1965 Pontiac GTO
The Pontiac GTO is an American automobile built by Pontiac Division of
General Motors from 1964 to 1974. It was a muscle car classic of the 1960s
In early 1963, General Motors' management issued a ban on involvement in
auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's advertising and marketing approach was
heavily based on performance, and racing was an important component of that
strategy. With GM's ban on factory-sponsored racing, Pontiac's young and
visionary management turned its attention to emphasizing street
performance. The GTO was basically a violation of GM policy, but since the
GTO was an option package and not standard equipment, it fell into a
loophole in the policy.
The GTO was restyled for the 1965 model year. It had Pontiac's
characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights. The restyled GTO had a
new simulated hood scoop. Another cosmetic change was the black "egg-crate"
The previous owner of this black beauty owned the car since the early
1980's. She bought it out of Ohio. It has had a complete frame off
