PRO TOURING '68 GTO: Project Payback

Project Payback is a 1968 Pontiac GTO saved from the crusher years ago, which will have new life as a cutting edge Pro Touring machine meant to carve corners and drive anywhere. It’s anemic, 2-barrel 400ci Pontiac V8 and Turbo 400 will give way to something befitting such a beast so it can compete in various autocross series, and be a reliable, fun combo for the road course. Can this archaic and hefty body-on-frame platform keep up with a modern Corvette? Follow along and find out!
