... PICTURE SET CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE CLICK->NEW POST Interior photos are no problem. I can jump real high with a camera in my hands. Sometimes I just stand still, close my eyes, concentrate hard, and then levitate to the appropriate height. If you've ever observed me levitating with a camera in my hands at a car show, it's quite a thrill to see. CLICK->NEW POST For this year's coverage of the Ames Tri-Power Pontiac Nationals, we have some videos to enjoy. This 1966 "GTO" wagon was seen in the newly-paved pits. CLICK->NEW POST Racing video. The 1966 "Tin Indian Performance" GTO wins. It had a run of 9.45 seconds. The wheelie bars, spoiler, and parachute are a necessity.
CLICK->NEW POST Another video. A 1967 LeMans race car as seen in the pit area. Let's walk around the C&M Homebuilders car. The sign in the back window says "This Win's For You, Dad". Since 1985, award winning C & M Home Builders has created homes of distinction throughout the Bucks and Montgomery County suburbs of Philadelphia and throughout the gorgeous Pocono Mountains. CLICK->NEW POST A cherry '68 convertible GTO with a rollcage and all the go-fast equipment installed. Who knows how fast this car can rip down the track? CLICK->NEW POST Have a look at the engine in this 1968 GTO. It is wearing several different brands of performance equipment. It appears to have a K&N air cleaner, Edelbrock intake manifold, Moroso valve covers, and an Auto Meter fuel gauge sender unit. CLICK->NEW POST Here you can see some interior details and the rollbars. The sidebar has a lever release for easier exit. I just noticed that there is a "For Sale" sign in the front window. CLICK->NEW POST Look through the passenger side window. There have been many modifications to prepare this car for race duty. However, they spared the radio from changes. It looks like the original AM radio. CLICK->NEW POST The New York streets are mean, so drive a mean car. This is the back end of the 1968 GTO, showing off that large chrome bumper. CLICK->NEW POST It's not everyday that you get to see a 1968 draggin' wagon. It wears a smooth hood and some serious Hoosier tires, ready to go. The car is waiting in the staging lane. CLICK->NEW POST Rear view of the station wagon. Up ahead you can see the large sign near the starting line for Summit Motorsports Park, formerly called Norwalk Raceway Park. Some people just call the place "Norwalk". Whatever you call it, it's worth the trip to Ohio to see this excellently-maintained facility with all modern equipment and nice people running it. CLICK->NEW POST See the front grilles? See the shiny silver hoses on each side? That 455 may have a little home-made Ram Air action going on. CLICK->NEW POST One of the great things about the Ames Tri-Power Nats is the selection of cars for sale. You can buy everything from finished show cars to project cars already loaded on a trailer. Don't let the primer fool you. In a year from now, this could be a concours car, showing at the 2008 GTOAA meet in New York. Hey, it could happen! CLICK->NEW POST Nice black 1968 Tempest racer in the pits. CLICK->NEW POST 1968 Tempest racer rear view. Dude was watching me walk around his car and take photos. Hi dude!

Says Dain Wilson (gr8dain.@netzero.com) - "Congrats on being officially noted in AutoWeek as THE site to visit to see GTO's. Don't let it go to your head. And please don't start charging admission, I would go broke."
