Brians current ride (And that just turned 11.40 at Lebanon,on 7 cylinders) is a match to his dad’s original Ride. . . Heres his Mom back then at the old homestead with Dad’s car AND Brian recently positioned HIS Pontiac in the same place, for a NOW shot….pretty cool huh. Whats that saying? …”the Nut doesn’t fall far from the tree” Oh…a 2nd cylinder went bad Too,but out being fixed now.
Brian reports the GTO suffered a blown driveshaft last Wed at the Valley …Major damage! floorboards wiped out -exhaust system dumped…shaft in 3 pieces.But 😯 still coasted threw the lights at 120 and beat the chevy.
That’s some ‘BAD’ news,sorry to hear about that Brian.It sounds like alot of ($$$$) damage to your G.T.O.I’m sure your already working on the repairs,and hopefully be back running in the near future;hang in there my friend!
Hey, Dino post a pic of the Goat getting it at Island !!!!
New driveshaft is in 1350 yokes bullet proof floors are next!
Brian, glad you’re getting the repairs under way. That must have really surprised the heck out of you. Did you ever determine exactly what started the “explosion”? ……………..Mikey 😆
Mikey,I talked to Brian a few weeks ago at the ‘Valley’,the ‘weak’ link was the ‘stock’ driveshaft,the only thing that wasn’t replaced in the drivetrain.All in all,he had a positive attitude towards it all,and is very impressed with it’s surprising performance,and power! He’s motivated,and as the saying goes,”I’ll be back” !!!!
Brian, you could line the floor with sand bags to protect yourself from those IED’s!!Might drop you down a couple of classes!!!
Get a “Dover Dude ” deal on the floor panels at M&M …Rich beats the others on price
Hey, i am still at it the exhaust is being done now and i was going to get the floors from Rich but i’ve been real busy plus i may get a set local from a guy that has new never used for a little trade !. Dino were is the pics from Island i need to see some smoke!! Brian.
Who can identify the car in the backgeound of Brian’s earlier picture…?
💡 ❓ 😀
Maso…..Which car in the background the Packard or the Chevy.
Either way… you answered it. 😉
I thought that might have been a Hudson Terraplane but you called it out as a Packerd.
keep guessing your both wrong ! That was my grandfathers
I think it’s a Plymouth
