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.
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.

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.
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.
