Racing Junk Find: A Bad Ass Poncho Powered Pontiac Drag Warrior


Racing Junk Find: A Bad Ass Poncho Powered Pontiac Drag Warrior

There are lots of Pontiac bodied drag race cars prowling strips across America, but few of them have actual Pontiac power. Nope, most of them are just a Pontiac body holding a Chevy motor. Not this one though. Packing a 1,000hp specialty Pontiac engine, this Firebird is just about one of a kind. 

The car spent it’s early life running NHRA index classes with a Pontiac engine, but the original owner’s son took the beast, had the bodied restored and painted back to a factory look. We dig the hell out of this car because it is a way fast Pontiac with a Pontiac based engine.

That motor is really something. The Kauffman Racing Equipment 540ci Pontiac engine features KRE raised port heads, a Wenzler custom tunnel ram intake, twin 1050 Holley Dominator carbs, and a raft of other heavy duty racing parts. The car currently sports a chassis certed to 8.50 and some bars would be needed to reach the 7.50 cert.

If you are a Pontiac performance fanatic, this is the bad ass car for you!
