http://www.v8tvshow.com - This 1966 GTO has seen better days, and this intro video explains the project details from start to finish, including the crazy timeline. It kinda goes like this: Install GM 6.2 liter L92 V8 and 6-speed 6L80E tranmission, install Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge air suspension system, upgrade the wheels, tires, and brakes. Drive on Hot Rod Power Tour. Disassemble entire car, replace quarter panels, repair holes in trunk floor, window ledges, fenders, and doors, paint, reassemble, and take to SEMA 2008. Whew!
1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The GTO came to us in primer, but
we didn't want it to hit the streets on the Hot Rod Power Tour in boring
light gray. So the decision was made to shoot the car with a fun 2-tone
paint scheme of charcoal and Scarlet red in PPG basecoat to give the car an
aggressive, satin look. Other materials used include lots of 3M tape and
mask paper. Someday the car will receive some new bodywork and a more
complete paint job, but this is the deal for now.

chosen to get the job done. David Butler takes us through the parts and
explaines his choices.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The 1966 GTO was finally ready to
hit the road. We bled the Wilwood brakes, had all the fluids topped off,
the ride height set, and it was time to take to the streets. Our goal
was to build a car that handled flat in the corners, made lots of power,
and was comfortable to drive, and the '66 GTO scored in all departments.
