@ the '21 Pomona Finals race:

The bad news is that Randi Lyn left too soon, in the semi-final.

But, the good news is that she was running a slower class car, which left too soon, before she did.

So, she made it to the final.

But she cut a bad light & lost the final.

"...But, are you sure which combo Arnie Toftland ran?.."

I think we covered this in another thread.

Arnie Toftland ran the "Viking" cars. One was a '70 GTO.

The other was apparently run as a '71 Bird, in H/SA. The pic I have of it & most every other '71 Bird Stocker I have a pic of, ran H/S or H/SA. BUT, as we've discovered, SOME years the class weight breaks were different, sometimes changing the class a car would run, from one season to the next. Also, it could have run a 400 engine, a D-port 455, or a 455HO round port engine. Therefore, it wouldn't surprise me a bit to find out this car also ran I/SA or G/SA, in certain years.

Found a few pics in the last couple of days, which I don't think I've posted. Some are just different pics of cars I've mentioned earlier in the thread.

The 1st is another pic of the "Lil 2 Speed" '64 GTO.

Then there are a couple of '65's.

Pic 4 is one of the Royal '66 PR cars. I just posted it because I think it looks cool from the front.

#5 is a pic of the Nemesis '69 Judge I don't think I've posted.

#6 is a pic of the "Big Iron" '69 Judge, in the staging lanes.

#7 is the "Big Iron" '70 Judge, at the same track, plus another '70 Judge behind it.

#8 is a Grand Prix Stocker which I've never seen before.

#9 is another pic of the '60 "Big Iron", in the pits.

Here's a few more pics I got recently.

The 1st 3 are '69 Birds.

#1 is the Royal "Test Car". Don't know what all they tested with it.

#2 is a Towne Pontiac '69 Bird, running C/S.

#3 is the Royal 350 powered '69 Bird. I assume they only ran one of these. Don't know.

#4 appears to be a '73 Ventura, driven by Jack Matyas, running Q/S. He later ran a '74 Ventura & a '74 GTO. All 3 MAY have been the same car, with different body parts/trim. Running in Q/S, it may have had a 2-barrel. Not sure. I know that in '74, the 4-barrel 350 ran O class.

The next 4 pics are of 3 '58 models.

The last pic is of a '62, running E/S. Michael is one of the names on the car. I assume that is Bob Michael, & the car is one of the MANY Pontiacs he had a hand in.

A guy on another site is asking for info on the Ray Hunt Pontiacs. This pic of a '72 A-body is all I can find. It may have been a Super Stocker, at the time. Can't tell, for sure. I think Ray was connected to Mid-America Speed Centers. May have owned it. Don't know.

Anybody have more info on Ray Hunt Pontiacs ?

Don't know if this is the same Ray Hunt.

"... A consistent NHRA winner plus two-time IHRA Northern National Championship wins with racing photos included..."

Would love to see those pics & links to the race win results.

"...Don't know if this is the same Ray Hunt..."

I don't know either.

Note: Ray is connected to the "Warrior" intakes, which were supposedly copies of the original "Nash" intake. May have even had a business called "Warrior Racing Products". He gets real bad reviews on some Pontiac sites. Here's one of the "nice" threads about him.

https://forums.maxperformanceinc.com...d.php?t=422060

But, I'm not interested in that. I'm only interested in the Pontiac powered cars he may have either driven or sponsored, in Stock or Super Stock.

Assume the '67 linked may have looked similar to this F/SA '67, but a bit more red.

I thought this was a "Feel Good" racing story.

Lindy Lindholm raced a '74 Firebird Formula. A few years back, somebody stole the car & trailer.

Today, Leo Glasbrenner told me that, with police help, he found the Lindy Lindholm '74 Formula Stocker.

The thieves had messed up some stuff. So Leo fixed/freshened everything, got it race ready, & then surprised Lindy with it ! Ain't that cool ?

Lindy raced it at Vegas, & somehow I just didn't see it.

It ran .736 under.

I had the warrior performance catalogue/pamphlet. I bought some parts from them in circa 1988. Ram Air IV cam lifters springs and a chain and assorted goodies. I built up a budget backyard 455 I picked up. I would dream looking at that intake and other equipment. Still have my Pontiac performance books on numbers and mods. Forget the names now.
Cool thread.
Having a GTO stocker must’ve been awesome. Ram Air IV cars are still my fav cars of all time. Especially the 1969s.

Since you live in New York, I assume you are familiar with Pontiac guys Richie Hoffman & Nunzi Romano.

For any reading this who don't know these guys, Richie is well known for his Pontiac powered bracket racing & Pontiac engine building.

http://forums.maxperformanceinc.com/...3884&p=3898670

Nunzi has done it all. I suppose he was the biggest name in Pontiac performance & racing, for decades. I'm quite sure I've posted pics of some Stockers he either owned or sponsored. I'll look 'em up & post 'em here.

Pics 2-4 are of a '62 Cat which ran C/S. Pics 5-7 are what I assume is either the same car, restored, or a re-creation of it, which ran D/S.

Pics 8 & 9 are of a '69 Judge which says on the rear quarter "Prepared by Nunzi's Automotive".

https://www.yenko.net/forum/showpost...93&postcount=1

I'm sure he did work on, & probably built engines for other Stockers, back in the old days. If you guys know of any, please post info and/or pics.
