This is the GTO I built and raced between 1984 and 1992. Anyone know where it is? I sold it to a guy in Memphis TN when it got to the point that you couldn't be competitive without a trans break and delay box.
The picture of the baby blue 68 Tempest is how it was when I bought it from a guy named Lowel in central FL. The Dorn Brothers in Sanford did the body work and awesome Orbit Orange paint. Ken Wells built the TH400. I built the engine and rear end etc. The car weighed 3500 lbs with driver. Best ET/Speed: 1/4 mile 10.36/132mph, 1/8 mile (set up for the 1/4) 6.55/103mph, 1.48 sec. 60 foot. This is the first and only Pontiac I ever built. It was a stock bore and stroke 455 with cast rods and crank. "62" D-port heads, measured 11.2:1 compression ratio using TRW forged flat top pistions. Torquer intake, 850 Holley. Crower mechanical cam. TCI 5000 stall 8" converter. 9" Ford with 4.10 gears, Strange spool and axels. Shifts were at 5500 rpms and it went through the 1/4 mile traps at 6200 rpms. The rear tires were 14 x 33 MT (I hated the MT's, Firestones and Goodyears hooked better). I fabricated the headers from a Headman Hustler (flat collector) kit and they were worth .2 sec off the ET.
The first time out, I had $5000 in the car and ran in the 10's off the trailer with a Quadrajet. By the time I sold it, I had better than twice the money in it and had tuned 6/10th off the ET. I raced it all over FL, GA and TN and had only good times with great friends. Like they say, a bad day at the track is better than a good day at work. Hopefully I'll find some of the in car videos from Memphis where it carried the front tires 3" in the air, 6 feet out, remember, this was old school, foot breaking it.

F.A.S.T. 69 Ram Air IV GTO running 12's on G70's
This was my best run last year at Pittsburgh raceway, it ran a 12.82 with
1.80 60 foot time on G70's. This was my first year running this car and I
only had time to get used to launching the car correctly and shifting
differently. This run was done without using the clutch to shift, I also
tried speed shifting(not letting off the gas and bumping the clutch) and
did not pick up any time. The engine is a 69 428 built to RAIV specs with
an M-20 and 4.11 rear. I am going through the entire car and looking to
pick up more time this year.
