NHRA National Time Trials Phoenix 1-28-07. Doug Kalitta warming up his Top
Fuel Nitromethan powered car at the Firebird raceway in Phoenix, AZ during
the National time trials. I had to go to get my fix of Nitro cars. Check
out the sound on this one, lol.
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.
Motes and Williams Twin Engine Dragster KABOOM
Here is the final video clip. This is the last time the car ran in 2006.
Pretty much destoyed the front engine. Back two cylinders, gone. Rods,
pistons, valves, heads, crank, can we say toast. RC is behind the car on
New Dragster Exhaust
OJZ Engineering have custom fabricated some new headers for the dragster,
so it would have been rude not to let Lance from OJZ have a sit in the car
to test the Exhausts..
Lions Drag Strip Wilmington (Long Beach), California
Lions Drag Strip, Wilmington, California Late 50's, early 60's
I was born and grew up in Long Beach during this same time, my Dad and
uncles would take me there. I can still remember the smell of bleach,
burning rubber, and nitro methane. I Miss You Dad.
