Default Warpath66

Hey Folks,

My name is Bill & I'm into TriPower 4-speed GTOs- got two '65s and a '66.

One of my '65s rolled out of the factory doors in Pontiac, MI on the day I was born.

The 66 GTO plate is WARPATH, hence my username. It is a new build I'm finishing of a factory two-tone car- Barrier Blue with a painted Starlight Black top. 464CI, maxed out E-heads, ported tripower and a big roller. Should make somewhere north of 600HP. It's currently red, but I was gonna paint it black this fall, but I'm still on the fence about going back to original colors.

I'm an SFI certified Technical Inspector at New England Dragway in Epping NH so if you race up there with a Pontiac you probably know me.

Met John Holmes today- he was up with Arnie's '66 GTO racing at the Hot Rod Reunion. Hung out with & got a pic with Jungle Pam, breathed in some killer Nitro fumes and got some awesome videos of some Nostalgia Funny Cars and even caught a cool '69 Camaro jet car that blew the body off at the end of the run. I'll post some pics and videos.
Cya,
Bill
