Got a few more Tons-a-Fun pics. As many here know, Gary & Charlene Wood ran at least 2 different wagons. One had a regular Lemans front. The other had the GTO type front, which I think was called the T-41 option.

They ran both the round port & D-port 455 engines. The 7th pic shows one of 'em before the Tons-a-Fun lettering was added. The last pic shows one of 'em painted black, which I assume was after Gary sold it.

Maybe if I've provided any bad info, Charlene will chime in & correct it.

I loved these wagons !

Combing back thru some old threads here.

Found this thread, showing that Bryan Phillips won a race on Dec 1 of 2012, at Gainsville.

http://classracer.com/classforum/showthread.php?t=44617

Not listed as a nat event or Lucas Oil Series race. So, anybody have more details about this race, or a link to race results ?

Got a few more stocker pics.

(1) Another win for the E/SA '63 Cat.

(2) The Swiss Cheese frame, of a resto in progress.

(3) Don Himes, '77 GP.

(4) Big Pontiac heads a long line of Stockers, that appear to be parked in front of the grandstands, just so fans could get a closer look. I find that very interesting. Nowadays, most fans could care less about Stockers. But it wasn't always that way.

(5) Another S/SA win for Carol Cox.

(6) Ken Shawver '71 E/SA Lemans.

(7) Kyle Riley, "Who's Next" '77 Lemans.

[8) Kyle again. Assume it's the same car with different paint.

(9) Tin Tiger 2, 1967 GTO.

Here's some more pics I don't think I've posted.

(1) "MIMI" '66 GTO.

(2) Dunn & Young '66 GTO.

(3) Neill Pontiac '65 GTO.

(4) Ray Faro '69 Judge.

(5) Garber Pontiac '69 GTO.

(6) Silver '69 Judge. My '69 GTO looked like this, less the Judge wing, stripes & emblems. Many non-Pontiac guys probably still think all '69 Judges were orange. When they 1st came out, that was the only color available. This was the case, when I ordered mine in early '69. I wanted a Judge. But I told the salesman I wasn't about to drive around in an orange car.

(7) 2-car rig hauling the Knafel Pontiac '66 GTO's.

[8) Side view of Knafel rig.

(9) J/SA Wagon.

More:

(1) Mike McKinney's Blue E/S '68 Bird does a burnout.

(2) Mike @ US 131.

(3) Bryan Phillips @ Indy, when his '67 was still white.

(4) LMP '67 Bird. Don't know if it set the nat record, or just ran a pass equal to the nat record, that someone else held.

(5) I think this is an all-Pontiac round, tween the Garber Pontiac 2nd gen Bird & a '69 GTO. If I'm wrong about the GTO, someone correct me.

(6) Burgundy D/S Truman Fields '68 Bird. He ran 'em with several different paint jobs, and in several different classes.

(7) Green BPS. I assume this was run in B-Pure Stock.

[8) Here it is in C/S, with a multi-colored paint job. I just ASSUME all these are the same car. I suppose only he, & a few others, such as Todd Hoven, actually know, for sure.

(9) The last pic is from a few years earlier. Just assume this was the original HT, before it was sold to Roy & Mike McKinney.

Default Re: Best Pontiac Powered Stockers

After searching thru LOTS of pages in the Nostalgia Stock/SS section, I must say again how much damage Photobucket, & other pic hosting sites used for most of the pics in that section, have done to completely ruin entire pages of threads.

It sorta reminds me of walkin thru a former nice city or community, which has been totally destroyed by bombing, or some type of natural disaster.

I mean, many of the posts contain comments about the pics that WERE in a previous post, but are no longer visible. It makes many of the comments completely useless, since you don't know what was in the pic referred to.

I ASSUME that a VERY small number of those now defunct pics were of Pontiacs, which I could have used. It just makes the search that much longer & less fun. MUCH of the time I've spent searching that section has been totally useless, & not much fun. I really enjoy it when I can search thru a thread & am able to find just one or 2 Pontiac pics I didn't have. I suppose it's sorta like panning for gold. They only found a real nugget on rare occasions.

But, at least they could look & tell what was NOT gold. On most of those pages, I can't see any cars of any brand. I assume others besides me have had this unpleasant experience, with the old threads.

As they say, "rant over", at least for now.

Tom Kasch posted lots of pics & lists in the Nostalgia Stock/SS section. I may have already posted some of the lists. But, I'm not gonna comb back thru the entire thread to see.

This 1st list is of nat records in '82. Jack Matyas had the low ET record in O/SA, with his '74 Ventura. Larry Maxwell had the mph record, with his '74 GTO.

http://classracer.com/classforum/sho...48&postcount=1

In '83, Kevin Thomas held the low ET record in N/S, in a '74 Lemans. Only '74 stick Lemans Stocker I remember reading about.

In '79, Pontiacs held a few nat records.

Fred Moore & Bob Maxey held the SS/JA mph record in a '73 SD455 Bird.

Roy & Mike McKinney held the E/S nat record, in their '68 Bird.

Both M/S & N/S records were held by '74 Venturas.

Rock Running held the E/SA ET record, in his '71 455HO Lemans
