I thought I would make a separate post instead of continuing to pollute the post about a 421 in a '66 GTO from the factory. A little history of the "ringer". Jim Wangers specified how he wanted the car configured to get maximum marketing impact. The car not only had a 421 installed, but it got the Bob Cat treatment (and maybe more). Afterwards this was Jim's personal car for awhile. During the time it was Jim's, he had lunch with a copywriter he worked with. This copywriter was Phil Fairchild. Phil brought his 4 year-old son with him and Wangers took them all for a ride, giving it "a shot through the gears". That gave the son a life long "obsession with cars". After the boy established himself in his profession, he went looking for the "ringer". The son is Tenney Fairchild, the current owner of the car. He found it back East in 2005 needing a lot of TLC. But it wasn't in too bad a shape, it mostly had a lot of wrong parts. After driving it around LA for awhile, he sent it to Scott Tiemann to turn it into the car you see today. Needless to say this is his pride and joy, and I can't imagine a better caretaker for the car.
