Win a Badass, 700 HP 1964 Pontiac GTO-R from Raybestos


You’ve seen them – “Win a BRAND NEW CAR!” contests only to find out the “big prize” is a 2011 Toyota Yaris or Chevy Aveo. Screw that…

Luckily, Raybestos gets it. They (and Chicago’s Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle) have souped up a 1964 Pontiac GTO to 700 HP then ran it down the quarter-mile at an incredible 128 mph.

This Goat is stocked with a 7.4-liter engine, a Tremec six-speed manual transmission, Moser 9-inch rear-end, custom fabbed body and suspension, around $20,000 worth of Raybestos NASCAR brakes and a reverse-sweep 180-mph speedometer. Niiiice.

To enter, just head over to and click the red picture of the GTO on the right. Contest ends on September 15th.

Check out the first video for the build and more pictures below, and make sure to look at the other build videos at

Hi! I founded in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
