After sitting completely dormant for 3.5 years, this is the initial fire up with oil fogged cylinders, fresh fuel, old spark plugs. I intend on installing a new full 2.5" Exhaust system. Car has run a best of 11.83 @ 114 open Exhaust, 11.97 @ 110 thru mufflers...
73 GTO New Exhaust
My new Jeg's Exhaust system. Sounds
decent but not throaty like a Flowmaster system. Engine is a 473ci, 11:1
compression, ported iron d-port heads, Edelbrock T2 manifold, Holley 950cfm
Pro Series, Lunati cam .534" lift 245 deg dur, Dynamax Headers
1973 PONTIAC LEMANS ON CHASSIS DYNO
HERE ARE A COUPLE OF PULLS ON THE CHASSIS Dyno. IT WAS LATER DISCOVERED
THAT WHEN THE CAR JUMPED THE ROLLERS IT BENT THE DRIVESHAFT. JUST ANOTHER
PART BROKEN TO ADD TO THE SCRAP PILE.
American Aston Martin? '66 Malibu: /BIG MUSCLE
• ENZO MORALES
A long wheelbase, v8 or v12 power, front engine/rear drive configuration,
and a sport-tuned suspension with four comfy seats inside. That ladies and
gentlemen is the recipe for any good grand touring car. Modern automobiles
like the Mercedes-Benz CL63, BMW M6 and the Bentley Continental GT are
perfect examples of this. How about a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu though
- what about that? When released in 1966, this 2nd generation Chevelle was
nothing more than a mid-priced, nicely appointed people mover with some
decent styling. However now, some 47 years later, owner Enzo Morales has
transformed this particular car into a jaw-dropping, hardcore styled road
burner that is just as happy running the super-slab at triple digits as it
is carving up your favorite back road.
2005 Pontiac GTO FUN
So my Dad bought a GoPro for Christmas.... Told him I'd make sure it works.
So I took it out for some fun and a little cruise around town, finished
with a little quarter mile run. Enjoy!
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.
132674 / 1973 Pontiac Grand Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6pccq85
This restored to original 1973 Pontiac Grand Am has won multiple national
awards and been featured on the cover of High Performance Pontiac magazine.
It is probably the best 1973 Grand Am in the world and is one of the most
unique and interesting Pontiacs in the classic car hobby.
Recently frame-off restored, this solid and surprisingly complete first
year Grand Am was originally delivered to Friend Pontiac in Beaver
Pennsylvania. Its European inspired design translates well in correct GM
code 74 Florentine Red on top of bodywork that displays no signs of major
repairs and was undoubtedly very straight before the restoration started.
If you check out the photos closely, you can sight down the cars curvy
flanks and see that there are no ripples in the sheetmetal and panel
alignment is spot-on thanks to factory correct gaps and the 100% original
Pop this cars beaked hood and you'll find an original 400 cubic inch L65
engine that hasn't been torn apart since it left GM's Pontiac Michigan
plant almost 40 years ago. It's an extremely strong running engine which
idles so smoothly and drives so well that the previous owner decided to err
on the side of authenticity and leave it untouched. At the top of the
engine, a satin black air cleaner displays a correct "400-2" decal and
sends air into a correct 2 barrel carburetor that is fed through a correct
AC fuel filter. Below the carburetor, Pontiac's tried and true 400 wears
correct blue paint from its valve covers to its oil pan and displays
correct reproduction decals and chalk marks. On the right side of the
engine, the cars custom Harrison air conditioning system has been restored
to its proper state and includes a correct Frigidaire compressor, and on
the left side of the engine you'll find a fresh brake Booster and master cylinder.
Behind the big 6.5 liter engine you'll find an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed transmission that
sends power to a Safe-T-Track Posi-traction rear end with comfortable 3.23
gears. Holding that smooth drivetrain off the ground is an optional special
suspension with the firm ride option which includes computer selected
springs, firmer shocks, taller front spindles that were borrowed from the
F-body, and 1.125 front and .94 rear stabilizer bars. On top of that
serious handling hardware is a variable ratio power steering system that
has good feel and GM's standard power front disc and rear drum braking
system. The cars passive stock Exhaust
has been upgraded to a welded aluminized true dual system that features an
H-pipe and two chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The suspension, steering and
brakes have all been properly maintained and the chassis looks
exceptionally clean given the age and authenticity of the car. At the
corners, great looking 15 inch Pontiac snow flake wheels wear 225/70
Goodyear Eagle GT IIs. However, if you're more of a traditionalist, the
cars original finned hubcaps are included with the sale.
Inside this Pontiac, high style is the name of the game. The original
Oxblood vinyl interior is 100% intact and in spectacular condition with
rich looking Morrokide buckets that include both reclining backs and twist
adjustable lumbar support. The beautifully detailed dashboard houses a
great looking African Crossfire Mahogany gauge pod that contrasts well
against the cars highly detailed gauges and chrome trimmed air vents. At
the center of the dash, controls for the cars custom HVAC system and an
original Stereo Eight 8-track player sit above a pristine console that is
slightly canted toward the driver. At the sides of the seats, the nicely
preserved padded door panels include chrome handles for the doors and
windows next to upscale angled pull straps. The steering wheel is the cars
original optional sport wheel that features bight satin aluminum spokes and
a factory fresh Pontiac branded horn button. The original nylon blend loop
carpet looks great under heavy duty rubber floor mats, and the burgundy
headliner is exceptionally nice with no glaring issues or signs of age.
With the luxury and flair of a European sports sedan and the style and
grunt of a fire breathing American muscle car, this is one old Pontiac that
has personality by the buckets.
