Final cut of the GTO video. Missed out on a few shots such as the big burnout due to weather constraints. I think it came out pretty well though. Enjoy! Be sure to comment.

Learn to Drive Stick in a Pontiac GTO
A friend asked me to demonstrate some manual transmission driving techniqes, so here it is! Again, I'm no professional. If there are other techniques that you would like me to demonstrate, feel free to list them in a comment below! Might have to make a part 2!! :)
The technique you use will only work in cars with lots of power, the GTO has that. Unfortunately people that learn this for the first time will learn with mini-vans and such. Driving manual is all about balance Pratice and find the place where your clutch bites and simultaniously push the gas. Not too much though , tires are expensive!

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.

Limit Pushing - Turbo LS2 GTO 0-60 Test
Just throwing up one last video before another two week hiatus.
This one definitely took the 0-60 record. The long awaited turbo LS2 GTO is here...and holy hell does it deliver. Thanks to a whole lot of help from Carl H at BlackBox Tuning.
The Pontiac GTO:
The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac Division of General Motors in the United States from 1964 to 1974, and by GM subsidiary Holden in Australia from 2004 to 2006 as the Holden Monaro. It is considered to be one of the most innovative classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The GTO came at a time when General Motors had banned the divisions from involvement in auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's marketing was heavily based on performance. This change in GM's policy forced Pontiac to turn its attention to street performance.
The GTO was born from a redesign of the Tempest which was to be called the "Super Tempest" with the larger 6.4 L Pontiac V8 engine from the full-sized Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville in place of the standard 5.3 L Tempest V8. The big-engine Tempest was badged the GTO for "Gran Turismo Omologato" after the Ferrari 250 GTO. The GTO escaped the violation of GM policy by becoming an option package for the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. The GTO package had sold 10,000 units before the beginning of 1964 followed by total sales of 32,450 GTOs. 75,342 were sold by 1965. This optional $ 296 package included a 6.4 L V8 that produced 348 hp with a single Carter AFB four-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, chromed valve covers and air cleaner, 7 blade clutch fan, a floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter, stiffer springs, larger diameter front sway bar, wider wheels with 7.50 x 14 redline tires, hood scoops, and GTO badges. The original GTO's was clocked about 5.6 seconds for the 0--60 test and a standing quarter mile time of 14.8 seconds.
As time went on, sales increased to almost 100,000 GTOs a year. Pontiac pushed for the GTO to be called the "GTO Tiger" in advertising, but it eventually became known in the youth market as the "Goat." The late 60's saw the creation of the ram air engines and the birth of the Judge. Power increased over the 60's from 348 hp to 375 hp in the best ram air applications. The best equipped GTOs could get from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds and perform a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds.
As the 70's rolled in, sales of the GTO plummeted. By 1973 GTO sales were down to 4,806 cars and the energy crisis was beginning to emerge. In 1974 Pontiac moved the GTO option to the compact Pontiac Ventura, also known as the Chevrolet Nova. This was done in an effort to become part of the compact muscle market which already included the Plymouth Duster 360, Ford Maverick Grabber and AMC Hornet X. The 1974 GTO was tested a with the four-speed transmission and achieved a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a quarter mile at 15.72 seconds. Sales improved in 74 to over 7,000 cars, but 1974 would be the last model year for the original GTO.
In 1999, the Detroit Auto Show beheld a GTO concept car. The 1999 concept was never produced but in 2004 Pontiac re-launched the GTO under the Holden Monoro platform. The new GTO was equipped with the Corvette's 350 hp LS1 engine in 2004 and the 400 hp LS2 engine for 2005 and 2006 with a choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The GTO was sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro and in the Middle East as a Chevrolet Lumina SS. The new GTO was never as popular in the U.S. due to the styling which was obviously not aimed towards GTO heritage or the car's performance (even with GM's frantic decision to add sporty hood scoops), and GM's failure to use a traditional American built car. The 2005 and 2006 models were virtually the same mechanically. Both made good use of the 400 hp LS2 engine and could go from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and could execute a standing quarter mile in 13 seconds. The 2006 model drew the GTO to a close once again with the end of GM's 3 year GTO revival plan.
