Red 1974 GTO owned by Reggie Horning from Traverse City, Michigan. Reggie adds, "I bought my car in the Fall of 2004 and had it painted and running by the Spring of 2005. The motor and front end had been rebuilt when I bought the car. I installed a set of #62 heads and installed a Comp Cams into the stock 350, and she really ran great. Unfortunately, the rebuild was not all that good and the crankshaft broke destroying the numbers matching block. I have since built a 455 engine (450 HP 550 TQ)using those same heads and Pontiac Long Branch headers and a little stouter cam. I have made subtle Pontiac only mods to the car including, early style PMD center caps and black dot lug nuts, 1968 hood tach, 1969 wood steering wheel and shifter knob, and blacked out the rear tailight panel. The hood scoop is functional when you hit 3/4 throttle and plans are to update to 15-inch Rally wheels and drive her to some shows this summer." CLICK->

The red paint goes on. CLICK->NEW POST Reggie sends us some update information on his Red 1974 GTO. He says, "The rebuild was done by the previous owner on the original engine ended up breaking a crank. So I built a 1974 455, using #48 428HO heads, Comp Cam, Edelbrock Performer, Ram Air Restoration Long Branch Manifolds and a restified Quadrajet to dial it all in. The hood scoop is fully functional using a B&M detent switch kit, and the cool air exits out of 2.5 Pypes Exhaust. It is very distracting to drive with the early hood tach revving and the hood scoop flapping open! I upgraded to 15x7 Rally II wheels 255/65/R15 up front and 275/60/R15 out back with PMD center caps and early lug nuts. Inside I replaced the worn out red interior with all black, installed a '69 wood steering wheel and shifter knob." Reggie now has a Red 1965 GTO as well.
