Nunzi's 1963 4 Cylinder Super Duty Tempest-Part 2
Hungry for more, Nunzi, the crew, and his 4 Cylinder '63 Tempest headed
back to Atco Racetrack in hopes to break 11's. Success came early in the
day hitting 11.74. When the spectators asked Nunzi if he was satisfied with
the 11.74 run, he quickly replied "I'm not done yet."

than it looks? I think he needs a cage and chute.

63 Pontiac Tempest Lemans 326 Convertible GTO Rebuilt Rare
1963 Pontiac Tempest Lemans with Rebuilt 326 and Convertible Top. Mickey
Thompson won all sorts of awards and trophies with this car. It was ground
breaking putting a big block V8 in such a small chassis. This was the GTO
before the GTO. I have over 70 Trans Ams, also collected GTO's Camaro's, Oldsmobile. I also have
a big collection of Mercedes, Cadillacs, Ford you name it I probably have
it. My name is Nathan give me a call anytime at 406-544-6919 if you have
1965 Pontiac Tempest tripower two door sedan
What a great muscle car! Beautiful paint and interior...the bench seat
could seat 3 up front! 4 speed, tripower car. Nice to have the original
air conditoning. This is a sleeper...I'm sure many would figure it to be
a regular family car!
Knafel Tin Indian 1966 GTO vs. Running Bear 1963 Tempest Launch
This is at The Pontiac Nationals in Norwalk OH on August 8, 2010. Both
these cars were originally built/prepped and driven by "Akron" Arlen Vanke.
Arlen is riding in the Red Running Bear Car. The cars launch and go
through first gear. Both are the ACTUAL cars not clones. The '66 GTO is
built to stock specs with a .060 389 Tripower 4 spd and 4.33 gears.
Running bear is set up to do more aggressive track duty with a worked 455.
Back in the day Running Bear ran a Super Duty 421 to low 11's in the A/FX
factory experimental class. The Tin Indian DOMINATED B and C stock running
consistent mid 12's and to Arlen's recollection a best time of 12.22 at
112mph. The GTO won Stock Eliminator at the Nascar Winter Nationals in
Daytona and followed that up by going 27 rounds and winning the Spring
Nationals in Bristol, TN. The '66 GTO never lost a race in it's class. Norm
"Sonny" Tanner is riding shotgun in the GTO. Tanner drove for Knafel
Pontiac in the late 60's and early 70's. Running Bear is now owned and
driven by Tim Benko. The Tin Indian is now owned by Merle Green and his
son Mike Green is driving in the video.
