Driving the 1971 Ford Maverick From Fast Five

remembered at all, as the car that replaced Ford's original compact, the
Falcon, back in 1970.

1963 Pontiac Tempest/ Cold Start
April 10th, 2011
Per Request of e-Bay bidders, I took video of my Tempest (Auction number
280654362489) running from cold start 3 minutes in to warm up so bidders
could get a feel for what condition the motor is in. Also see other video
of footage from under the hood with motor running.
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.

Porsche 911 RSR
1974 Porsche 911 RSR - 1 of 37 factory built 911 race cars. All mechanical
work performed by the world renowned RPA - Riggin's Performance Automotive.
RPA has a history of bringing high end Porsche race cars to OST for testing
This car has been in storage for some time and we had fuel delivery issues.
The 1st pull in the video was 1/2 throttle and the second was 3/4 throttle.
Opening the slides 100% yielded too lean fuel conditions. Mechanical
injection mods were unsuccessful. We're thinking fuel pumps. This car
should be back in the Spring.
