American Aston Martin? '66 Malibu: /BIG MUSCLE
• ENZO MORALES
A long wheelbase, v8 or v12 power, front engine/rear drive configuration,
and a sport-tuned suspension with four comfy seats inside. That ladies and
gentlemen is the recipe for any good grand touring car. Modern automobiles
like the Mercedes-Benz CL63, BMW M6 and the Bentley Continental GT are
perfect examples of this. How about a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu though
- what about that? When released in 1966, this 2nd generation Chevelle was
nothing more than a mid-priced, nicely appointed people mover with some
decent styling. However now, some 47 years later, owner Enzo Morales has
transformed this particular car into a jaw-dropping, hardcore styled road
burner that is just as happy running the super-slab at triple digits as it
is carving up your favorite back road.

JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.
2005 Pontiac GTO FUN
So my Dad bought a GoPro for Christmas.... Told him I'd make sure it works.
So I took it out for some fun and a little cruise around town, finished
with a little quarter mile run. Enjoy!
Pontiac GTO Supercharged
The 1969 model did not have the vent windows, had a slight grille and
taillight revision, moved the ignition key from the dashboard to the
steering column (which locked the steering wheel when the key was removed,
a Federal requirement installed one year ahead of schedule), and the gauge
faces changed from steel blue to black. In addition, the rear quarter-panel
mounted side marker lamps changed from a red lens shaped like the Pontiac
"V" crest to one shaped like the broad GTO badge. Front outboard headrests
were made standard equipment on all GTOs built after January 1, 1969.
The previous economy engine and standard 350 hp 400 CID V8 remained, while
the 360 hp (270 kW) 400HO was upgraded to the Ram Air III, rated at 366 hp
(273 kW) at 5,100 rpm. The top option was the 370 hp (280 kW) Ram Air IV,
which featured special header-like high-flow Exhaust manifolds, high-flow cylinder heads, a
specific high-rise aluminum intake manifold, larger Rochester QuadraJet
four-barrel carburetor, high-lift/long-duration camshaft, plus various
internal components capable of withstanding higher engine speeds and power
output. Unlike the highest rpm big-block Chevy and Hemi motors, the Ram Air
IV utilized hydraulic lifters.
By this time, the gross power ratings of both Ram Air engines were highly
suspect, bearing less relationship to developed power and more to an
internal GM policy limiting all cars except the Corvette to no more than
one advertised horsepower per 10 lb (4.5
kg) of curb weight. The higher-revving Ram Air IV's advertised power peak
was actually listed at 5,000 rpm—100 rpm lower than the less-powerful Ram
Air III. The straight stock Ram Air IV's were easily pushing 500 hp (370
kW) with a few tweaks to the carburetor and timing, and utilizing a careful
mix of high octane airplane fuel in the tank.
The Ram Air V was introduced in 1969 to professional racing, not for sale
to the general public or in showrooms, and was sold and delivered in a
crate. It was a special 400 block with newly designed high compression
tunnel port heads and a special high rise intake manifold. A prototype GTO
so equipped could go 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, and the quarter-mile time was
13.89at101.76 mph seconds at 123 mph (198 km/h). Ram Air Vs were not
installed in GTOs at the factory; it was available only as an
"over-the-counter" product for professional racing, and therefore most went
to Pontiac racers of the time.
The most significant event of 1969 for the GTO was the launch of a new
model called 'The Judge'. The Judge name came from a comedy routine, "Here
Come de Judge", used repeatedly on the Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In TV show.
The Judge routine, made popular by legendary showman Sammy Davis, Jr. was
borrowed from the act of long-time Burlesque entertainer Dewey "Pigmeat"
Markham. Advertisements used slogans like "All rise for The Judge" and "The
Judge can be bought." As originally conceived, the Judge was to be a
low-cost GTO, stripped of some gimmicks to make it competitive with the
Plymouth Road Runner. During its development, however, it was decided to
make it the ultimate in street performance and image. The resulting package
ended up being US$332 more expensive than a standard GTO, and included
the Ram Air III engine, Rally II wheels without trim rings, Hurst shifter
(with a unique T-shaped handle), wider tires, various decals, and a rear
spoiler. Pontiac claimed that the spoiler had some functional effect at
higher speeds, producing a small but measurable down force, but it was of
little value at legal speeds except for style. The Judge was initially
offered only in "Carousel Red," but midway into the model year a variety of
other colors became available. Of these other colors, a "Ram Air IV Judge
Hardtop" painted in Crystal Turquoise with a black interior is the most
rare with only two known to exist, one in Chicago IL, and one in Lenexa KS.
The GTO was surpassed in sales both by the Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 and the
Plymouth Road Runner, but 72,287 were sold during the 1969 model year, with
6,833 of them being The Judge. The rarest 1969 GTO, omitting color options,
was the Ram Air IV Judge Convertible - only five were built (Year One
