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.

Road Race Ready Pro-Touring 1966 Corvette Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Brent Jarvis is one of those people who really likes playing with cars. By day, he owns and operates Performance Restoration in Mundelein, IL., a shop that does everything from bodywork on everyday cars to frame-off restoration to construction of custom resto-mod pro-touring g-machines. But in his spare time, he builds killer creations like this modernized '66 Corvette.
1970 Pontiac GTO VOE "The Humbler"
A new and short-lived option for 1970 was the Vacuum Operated Exhaust (VOE), which was vacuum actuated via an underdash lever marked "Exhaust." The VOE was designed to reduce Exhaust backpressure to increase horsepower and performance, but it also substantially increased Exhaust noise. The VOE option was offered from November 1969 to January 1970. Pontiac management was ordered to cancel the VOE option by GM's upper management following a TV commercial for the GTO that aired during Super Bowl IV on CBS January 11, 1970. In that commercial, entitled "The Humbler," which was broadcast only that one time, a young man pulled up in a new GTO to a drive-in restaurant with dramatic music and Exhaust noise in the background, pulling the "Exhaust" button to activate the VOE and then left the drive-in to do some street racing. That particular commercial was also cancelled by order of GM management. Approximately 230 1970 GTOs were factory built with this rare option. A few mufflers have been "Hand-made" for the remaining cars; this occurred in 2006 and 2007.
1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The GTO came to us in primer, but we didn't want it to hit the streets on the Hot Rod Power Tour in boring light gray. So the decision was made to shoot the car with a fun 2-tone paint scheme of charcoal and Scarlet red in PPG basecoat to give the car an aggressive, satin look. Other materials used include lots of 3M tape and mask paper. Someday the car will receive some new bodywork and a more complete paint job, but this is the deal for now.
