Raceway in Maryland.
65 foot wheelie! @ Pontiac Nationals '04
Another run of the 1966 GTO from Muncie Indiana does appx. 65 ft. long
wheelie (To first timer light beams are 60 feet I think and wheels came
down well after that) and runs his exact dial in time. He did this numerous
times and kept on winning at the 2004 Ames Performance Pontiac Nationals.
Also a bad ass maroon '62 Catalina.
Pontiacs for 1964
John DeLorean replaced Pete Estes as general manager, and he continued the
same emphasis on performance that Bunkie Knudsen and Estes had begun.
The big news for 1964 For 1964, the Tempest and LeMans' transaxle design
was dropped and the cars were redesigned under GM's new A body platform;
frame cars with a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The
most important of these is the GTO, short for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the
Italian for "Grand Touring, Homologated" used by Ferrari as a badge to
announce a car's official qualification for racing. In spite of a GM
unwritten edict against engines larger than 330 ci in intermediate cars,
DeLorean (with support from Jim Wangers from Pontiac's ad agency), came up
with the idea to offer the GTO as a dealer option package that included a
389 ci engine rated at 325 or 348 horsepower (260 kW).
