Beat the Tiger program at the 2011 Jim Wangers GTOAA Drags
One of the GR-RRReat joys I (Dave Anderson) get as being Chief Instigator for Jim Wangers is that of being the driver of the GeeTO Tiger. The "Tiger" is a 1966 GTO drag car that we reincarnated in 2001 to mimic the original Royal Pontiac GeeTO Tigers of 1966. We operate the "Beat the Tiger" program at Pontiac events around the country where I match race against other Pontiac enthusiasts. Here is our program at the 2011 Jim Wangers GTOAA Drags at the Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn, OR.





PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY 405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60 degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).





Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing. Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is outside-the-box styling at its best. Owner: • Mike Artman
