5/26/2008:  Here is the new motor for the GTO...

Who would think this......

Could come out looking like this!!!!

The "who" is Rick Draman at Valley Engine Machine in Fountain Valley, CA.  Rick built the motor in my 62 'Vette and that's a great engine.  Rick is also working on his own Pontiac motor for his 64 GTO.  So, who best to build me a motor?


Now that the motor is back home, I will spend the time to put the various components back on (power steering  pump, alternator, etc.) and get ready to put the motor back into the car.

or this..........




and this!!!!

The motor was actually ready at Christmas time.  But I was not.  I still had lots of engine compartment clean-up work to do.  Rick let me leave it at his shop for 5 months, so long as I came and visited it regularly!
