Check out this vintage photo of Nathan Wallace's Dad's Fontaine Blue 1966 GTO hardtop. Nathan adds, "The photo of the '66 and my parents was taken around 1970. Unfortunately, my Dad sold the '66 to my uncle just before I was born in 1973. The car was hit by train - uncle was not injured but sadly the GTO was totaled." Here is Nathan's 1965 hardtop. CLICK->
This is the only 1966 Pontiac GTO to run in Competition on the NASCAR Grand Circuit from 1966 to 1969. This car was originally built by Bobby Allison and Associates. It was raced only twice by Bobby bearing the number 12 and painted this gold and red with the Coca-Cola sponsorship. The car was then sold to HB Bailey of Houston, Texas. He painted the car gold and black and changed the number to 36. It was crashed at Darlington and sold to Roy Tyner of Red Springs, North Carolina. Roy converted the car to a 1967 by changing the rear clip and the front grilles. He painted the car white with red numbers 9 (and sometimes 09). After engine failure the GTO was retired after a total of 33 Grand National Races and 6,576 laps of competition. The car never won a Grand National Race and the highest it finished was 4th. The car was then sold to Herb Houston of Rapseburg, Mayland in 1971. The car was put back together with the help of Smokey Yunick. Its number was changed to 24 and competed in NASCAR late Model Sportsman races at Beltsville Speedway from 1971 until the track closed in 1979. The car made occasional trips to Manassas, VA and Langley Field, VA, two trips to Concord, NC and one trip to Martinsville, VA, but Beltsville was 'home track'. CLICK->

The car in its native setting. The Track! It is seen here on "The Magic Mile" at New Hampshire International Speedway, New England's largest sports facility and home of professional motorsports in the Northeast. The track is located on Route 106 in Loudon, NH, ten miles northeast of Concord; the state capital. One of the more unique features at NHIS are the 4 helipads located in the infield area adjacent to pit road. The helipads facilitate corporate executives visiting NHIS with helicopter service connecting area general aviation facilities and the speedway. CLICK->
The engine compartment has some of the typical items seen on a race car of the era. Notice the routing of the heater hose. It does not go to a car heater! No need for that. CLICK->
