The Story
This car has been "in the family" since new. In 1977 the LeMans became my graduation gift. It ran a blinding 17.1 at 85 mph. Best time to date 10.77 at 127.7 on motor. No time with nitrous oxide use yet  
Kim Reed
This 73 Formula 455 is one of the 553 original Ram Air cars manufactured in 1973 before the WU3 ram air option was discontinued. It has been restored as a frame off. Original 455 is rebuilt and in the car. The car was repainted its original Burma Brown metallic color using all BASF refinish products. If you can believe it, the original owner was an older lady ( although I guess she was much younger when she bought the car new over 30 years ago) !  
Kim Reed
My intention had been to find a low optioned unmolested rust free 1969 Grand Prix with the expectation I would find it in the South. This car actually turned up in Sudbury Ontario ( oil sprayed and garage stored) . Although a tune up and fresh coat of paint would have made it nice, I took it all apart and restored it. I replaced the 400 engine with a built 428 and installed factory tach and gauges all from a wrecked 69 SJ, added 3 inch exhaust and finally a 12 bolt posi from a 72 SJ. Other than that it is very stock. A little loud and a best ET of 12.50 @ 108mph

This 68 firebird 400 convertible autumn bronze is a stunning Car! And it see's the track too.  
Ron Meyers The car is a '66 GTO that's been modified. I found this Indiana car on EBay in 2003 and had the opportunity to carefully look it over before handing the previous owner a check. It had 32 K original miles and a numbers matching 389 Engine. It has been repainted once but will need to be properly done in the near future. I installed a Butler Performance stroked 400 (467 cu.in.) with a reworked TH400. A Coan converter compliments the trans. I found a 12 bolt and added a Richmond 3:55 gear set with an Eaton Posi. Doug's Headers and Dynomax mufflers help the ported heads with expelling the exhaust gases. I raced the car with the new motor at the Ames Performance Tri-Power Nationals in Norwalk August 2005 and ran a best 12.71 @110 mph on street tires. With some good tires and a little tuning, the Goat is now in the 11's, with a best of 11.93 @112.5 mph. My thanks to all the Royal Pontiac Club members that helped me with this project.
