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 be nice!

1964 Pontiac GTO 455 V8 Pro Street - Extremely Nice - Gateway Classic Cars
I thought you'd like a look at his awesome Pro Street 1964 Pontiac GTO.
This car was painted back in the early 90's, but still looks nearly
perfect. It has been really meticulously maintained over the years. It's
powered by a very stout 455 Pontiac V8, that has been bored .030 over to a
461. It's topped by a polished Edelbrock intake and a Holley 4 BBL carb.
As you can hear in the video, it's plenty healthy too. All that power is
sent through a turbo 400 automatic, with
a 3500 rpm stall converter, to a narrowed Dana 60 rear with 3.73 gears and
Moser axles. The attention to detail on this car is really amazing. This
one really is about as clean as they come. I hope you find it interesting,
thanks for taking a look!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

GTO 2004 part 1 - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
A presentation about the controversial 04 GTO! -
http://www.cool-cars-video.com - GTO 2004 part 1 - Cool Cars, Hot Cars,
This video review was made when the 2004 GTO first hit the streets.
You would think all the modern technology used to develop and bring a car
to market would inspire forward-thinking ideas. But in the the beginning of
the 21st century "retro" was the buzzword in automotive circles and GM was
looking backward to it's days of glory with the GTO.
One of the biggest controversies about the GTO was it's bland styling.
The original GTO, making it's debut in 1964, was the first over-powered
midsized automobile marketed as a street car for young buyers. There was
nothing especially flashy about it. The 2004 GTO properly commemorates the
simplicity of a fast car without dramatic styling cues. But Pontiac was
clearly targeting older buyers this time around. All the more reason for
the new GTO to demonstrate a conservative profile.
To describe the 2004 GTO as fast would almost be an insult.
The new GTO is a no apologies performance car suitable for daily driving.
Almost a decade later, the GTO still holds it's own against the modern
muscle that's hitting the streets.
Perhaps the 21st Century GTO will earn legendary status after all.
Maybe it already has.
General Motor's F-body design have been a staple of Pontiac and Chevrolet
since 1967. Originally intended to compete against the Ford Mustang as an affordable sports car
for young buyers.
The F-body platforms were introduced during the muscle car boom, they
continued for thirty five years as monikers for exciting style and raw
But sales began slipping during the mid-nineties as sticker prices spiraled
out of reach of the intended market. The F-body had become an expensive
automobile, obtainable by a predominately older demographic.
Rather than cut cost to regain the intended market, General Motors decided
to re-envision a car more appealing to mature buyers.
In 2003 the F-body was gone and no low end performance cars were offered by
But the buzz was already on about a different kind of sports coupe for
General Motors was about to embark on the retro wave with the return of the
69 GTO Judge Drag Car Pictures & Video
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.
