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.

1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Drag Car Racing @ Memphis, In Car Video
Some old school VHS camcorder in car footage of 1/8 mile passes I made at
Memphis Motorsports Park back in 1990. Stock bore and stroke 455, 850
Holley, all motor, 5000 TCI Stall, TH400, 9" Ford with 4:10 gears. Car is
setup to run the 1/4 mile. On the second time trial I'm running the
dragster you see in the still picture before the video. I tried to tree
him but was a little early, note how easily he drives away from me. We've
probably got about the same power but he's at least 1200 lbs lighter, must

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
1970 PONTIAC GTO JUDGE RAM AIR IV BUILT AND READY TO RACE!
http://www.MMBrokers.com This is a real GTO Judge per the PHS
Documentation. Not only is it a Judge but it is an original triple black
car (black exterior, black vinyl top, and black interior). It also was an
original Hertz car! This car redone back to factory specifications would
easily command 200k! Today, it is a powerful and extremely mean quarter
mile car that could easily be made street legal. The car has had over 50k
worth of work done to it. We are asking 32k. Please check out
