ALL CARS WELCOME!
If you can drive it....YOU CAN RACE IT!!!
King of the Track WALLY will be up for grabs this Saturday!
Winner of King of the Track will also receive FREE tech cards for the
ENTIRE 2013 Race Season at Barona 1/8 Mile Drags! The 1969 Caprice and
other full-sized Chevrolets were restyled with crisper body lines and front
bumpers that wrapped around the grille (again with optional concealed
headlights, for which headlight washers could be added as a new "one year
only" option) along with ventless front windows on all models. The 119-inch
(3,023 mm) wheelbase, inner bodyshell and framework were carried over from
the 1965 model -- along with the rooflines of pillared four-door sedans
(which were offered in lesser Impala, Bel Air and Biscayne series, but not
on Caprices, which continued only in two- and four-door hardtop choices
only). The station wagon was renamed the Kingswood Estate, but continued to
use exterior wood grain trim along with exterior and interior trim shared
with Caprice sedans and coupes. Inside, front seat headrests were now
standard equipment due to a federal safety mandate and the ignition switch
moved from the dashboard to the steering column and doubled as a lock for
the steering wheel when the key was removed, a Federal mandate that took
effect with the 1970 models but introduced a year earlier on all General
Motors cars except the Corvair.
The 1969 Caprice also offered a new GM-designed variable-ratio power
steering unit as optional equipment along with a seldom-ordered "Liquid
Tire Chain" option, which was a vacuum activated button that would spray
ice melt on the rear tires (UPC option code is "V75"). The standard engine
was enlarged to a 235 hp (175 kW) 327 cu in (5.4 L) V8 with optional engine
choices including a new 350 cu in (5.7 L) turbo Fire V8 rated at 255 and 300 hp (220 kW), a
265 hp (198 kW) 396 cu in (6.5 L) cubic-inch turbo Jet V8, and 427 cu in (7.0 L) cubic-inch turbo Jet V8s rated at 335 and 390 hp (291
kW). All V8 engines were now available with the three-speed turbo Hydramatic transmission for the first time
though the two-speed Powerglide was still offered with the 327 and 350 V8s.
The 1970 Caprice received a minor facelift featuring a more conventional
under the grille bumper replacing the wrap-around unit used in 1969 along
with new triple vertical taillights in the rear bumper. Power front disc
brakes and fiberglass-belted tires on 15-inch (380 mm) wheels were made
standard equipment along with a larger 250 hp (186 kW) 350 cubic-inch turbo Fire V8. Optional V8s included a 300
hp (220 kW) 350 and a new 265 hp (198 kW) 400 cu in (6.6 L) turbo Fire V8. At the top of the engine roster,
the big block 427 was replaced by a new (longer stroke) 454 cu in (7.4 L)
turbo Jet V8 offered in power ratings of
345 hp (257 kW) and 390 hp (290 kW). Both the 250- and 265 hp (198 kW) turbo Fire engines were designed to use
regular gasoline while the 300 hp (220 kW) 350 turbo Fire and both 454 turbo Jet engines required premium fuel. A
three-speed manual transmission with column shift was standard equipment as
in previous years but the floor-mounted four-speed manual with Hurst
shifter was dropped from the option list for 1970 as were the Strato bucket
seats and center console previously offered on coupes. Automatic
transmission options included the two-speed Powerglide on 350 V8s and turbo Hydramatic with all engines.

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.
