Here they are putting Al's fresh Tri-power engine back in his red 1965 GTO hardtop. Gotta like those action shots. We rarely get pictures of people actually working on their cars. They are wearing Rosell's Citgo shirts. Rosell's is in Rivervale, New Jersey. CLICK->
Looks good Al. Al goes on to say, "I took my wife for a ride. Thank God it has a grab bar. She had white knuckles the whole time." CLICK->

This is a great looking building loaded with nostalgic signs. Seen here are Mobilgas Socony-Vacuum, Quaker State, Firestone, Sinclair, Iso-Vis Motor Oil and Kendall. This has got to be the biggest "LUBE" sign I've ever seen. Oh, yeah, and there's a car in the photo too. CLICK->
Montero Red 1965 GTO convertible owned by Mike Moore from Calgary, Canada. This was our Picture Of The Week for 1/23/05. Mike also has a Nightshade Green 1968 GTO that was Picture Of The Week last week. Mike tells us about his Goat, "I bought this car from the second owner in 1998. It still had the original paint and no rust. It took four years to restore. It is an original Montero Red, parchment, white top car. It has a numbers matching 389, added Trips, an M20 4-speed and 3.23 Posi, Rally gauges, Rally I wheels, lamp & mirror group, exhaust splitters, tilt and wood wheel. Nothin better than cruisin through the mountains with the top down!" CLICK->

Red 1965 GTO 'Zombie' Drag Car pictures sent in by Steve Roden. This was our Picture Of The Week for 2/13/05. Steve comments, "My Dad's close friend now owns it. I have worked on this car. It had a Lenco in it but the previous owner took it out so we put a turbo 400 in it at our shop. The car is now running in the Midwest Gasser Association, but it might become a street car this year. At the track it goes 10.13@134 mph. It should have gone faster but the steering went crazy." The car was seen on eBay on 2/9/05. Here is part of the description, "World of Wheels 2005 1st place trophy winner. This is what has to be the wildest GTO. Nothing compares to it in person. Before there was the 'Fast and the Furious', they had cars that were just furiously fast. The Zombie with 950hp under the hood pushing this car into the low 9s in the 1/4 mile at the strip just blew everyone's mind and shut up and shut down those who were not ready. This car has been in magazines, won at many shows, and draws attention wherever it is seen. An all steel body car with a blown and injected 468ci Chevy V8 with aluminum heads. All the Good Guys expensive parts were used to build this car. It has been chromed, powder coated, and polished everywhere." CLICK->
This red 1965 GTO Drag Car has a serious no-nonsense racing interior. CLICK->

The grille says, "Pontiac from Hell." CLICK->
