Where were all these GTO guys in SoCal when I lived there? I was like the only non-Chevy/Ford guy winning street races... Okay, maybe not the ONLY guy, but damn few!

There's a Pontiac "hard core" in Chino! Vinny Madeya and his nostalgia funny car! He joined us in the "6 Second Club" a couple weeks ago at Pontiac Heaven (Steve Barcak's show in Phoenix). The"kicker" is he used a "stock" 400 block and crank! 6.99 @ 199!

Welcome aboard! And remember, when the Chevy boys tell you a Pontiac "don't run", remind THEM, GTO didn't get it's reputation from LOSING to SS396... (:-
