That's a real good point. I'd like to know, too. Don't know how many she's won.

So, what Pontiac powered Stocker has won the most national events ?

Loved those Tons-a-Fun wagons ! At least one of 'em was a record holder.

I suppose they were famous for raising the left front, at launch. They were real "torque twisters". They ran both the round port & D-port 455 engines.

Knafel Pontiac had quite a few quick Pontiacs.

They had a '65 GTO record holder.

And this '66 GTO apparently won lots of trophies.

https://www.google.com/search?q=knaf...hrome&ie=UTF-8

Bill Knafel bought Anderson Pontiac, & kept the Anderson name for several years. So, there were some pretty quick Pontiacs with Anderson Pontiac wrote on 'em.

http://www.pontiacpreservationassoci...ll-knafel.html

Many of those 421SD cars were more like factory stock race cars. They used Pontiac factory engines, but the car may not have come from the factory with those engines. In some years, the 421SD parts were available over the counter, but could not be ordered in a new car. Pontiac also installed some of these engines into '63 Tempest bodies, & gave them to selected Pontiac racers.

The Herslow & Morlock '73 SD455 Bird was an E/SA nat record holder. It made a mag cover in '76.

And, here's a '74 SD455 E/SA Bird. I have it listed as Bill Foder. But it has Tony Reiter on the door. Anybody know this car ?

Pontiacs were winning LOTS of races, several years before the GTO & Firebird came along.

The 421SD cars won lots of 'em. One of those was the A/S car driven by Don Gay. It won A/S at the '62 US Nats.

Don & Gay Pontiac got some good ink in this article.

I believe George Cureton raced a 58 Pontiac, after the 56 "Tokyo Rose"delivery. Jack Cassidy's GTO, 60 hard top "Arapaho", 60 wagon "Big Bruiser".
