1964 Pontian GTO

One of my high school buds had a GTO, that his mom let him buy when he got a job working a hospital as on orderly. We all piled into his car an went cruising on the weekends. His car seemed fast... he street raced against anything out there that would want to race!

It had the single 4-bbl, positraction, and a 4-speed. The only mod he made was to add some glass packs for more vroom sound.

Wednesday nite was "Run what ya brung nite" at Lion's Drag strip in So Cal, so we drove there to get a timeslip. The cool part was him being too chicken to run it and allowing me to have the first honor!!

I remember wheel hop, smoking tires and a high 13 quarter mile. He later wrecked the car on a curve. It as a pretty nice ride at the time.
