After the prototype is complete Milt will be touring with it to shows
 and will be taking orders for new cars to transform.

 The 66 Royal race car 1:24 die cast models are in. 
The detail is second to none. Makes a great gift to that Pontiac Enthusiast.
Check out some of the reviews from proud owners of  the die cast model.
Jim, I received my car and I love it.  The detail is unmatched by any others I have and I have a collection of over 1,000 cars (99% Pontiacs) of all size and price range.  I have a couple dozen very special limited editions in a mirrored and lighted display case...that the 66 Royal race car proudly "fits in" like family.  The personalization on the box, decklid, certificate, and note from Milt displayed along side the car and Milt's book lets the "uniformed" Chevy guys quickly understand the significant race history behind the car.  I will enjoy it for years to come. 
Thanks again and thank Milt also.  Jerry

Another writes,

Spent the last month or so dialin in the 70 locally.  I am happy to say we now have 10.49 @ 129 mph.
We have spent the last month experimenting with the torque converter, rear sway bar, adjusting the air bags and fattening up the carb.  The next thing we are going to try is a set of new tires.  If the weather cooperates up here we should be able to get another month of testing in.

   WIth this link I get more storage for more pictures. 
I am going to start updating the entire site to this format to save myself a ton work.

Going to the dyno next week with the engine.  Interior getting started.
E-mail us with any questions or concerns related to Milt.  jschornack1@comcast.net

Reservations for the 08 season are filling up. Hurry to reserve Milt to visit your Pontiac event.
Going to the dyno next week with the engine.  Interior getting started.

Lately, we have had many people inquire about where to find Pontiac cars and parts.  If you are looking for a Pontiac part or have some parts to sell, drop us a line  via e-mail. 
We are always looking for classic Pontiacs to buy.
We also have a bunch of connections in the Pontiac family that deal in hard to find parts.

Milt also has sold the 74 SD Trans Am. 
Thanks TA Troy!  I know that you will bring her back up to perfect condition.
The body is in real bad shape but the engine is numbers matching.
The plan was to restore and re-manufacture the engine but time constraints are making it impossible.

Update on the 70 Royal Automotive GTO Judge Race car. 
FAST automotive in Batesville Indiana is doing a fantastic job.  We plan on running this car down the 1/4 mile.   It just had a roll bar installed.   Motor City Muscle has been working on many combinations of Ram Air IV cylinder heads.  The final product is not going to have Edelbrock aluminum heads or Holley carbs.  We plan on using the Ram Air IV heads and doing some crazy porting.  The engine will be carbed by a extremely modified Q-Jet for ultimate performance.  The dyno will be waiting and we will get you the numbers on this one as soon as they become available!  021507

With the car show season coming to a close I would like to take this opportunity to thank some people for their contributions to my latest restoration, the 66 Royal Race Car.  Perhaps some of you have followed its progress here the past year.  This GTO turned out better than I could have ever expected.  
First, and foremost  thanks goes out to Steve Wittiker of  Lake  Area Collision.   It was his idea and vision that made this car possible.  Everywhere I go with this car I could not feel more proud of  the job Steve and his crew did!   The compliments that I receive  wherever I go do not stop coming!  This car really stands out at  any show.  My answer to all the praise is and always will be  directed towards Steve and his crew at Lake Area Collision.  Steve you are the best, thank you.
Next I would like to sincerely thank Performance Years restoration parts and "PYPES" the company who specializes in exhaust systems for several brands of cars.  All of the part fit with ease and were made of high quality.  Contact Chris or Mike 1-800-542-PART for any of your restoration of exhaust needs.
I would also like to thank Mike Henderson at Motor City Muscle for the assembly of the engine.  They really came through with exactly what I wanted on this replica engine build.  This engine is putting out nearly 500 HP!  The guys at Motor City followed the modifications that I wanted to a tee.  For example the flow on a normal set of 093 heads is about 195 CFM's.  These modified heads are flowing about 25-30% better than stock. 
No classic restoration would be complete without a classic interior.  I would like to thank Legendary Auto Interiors  for this magnificent job on the interior.  It looks just like new.
My thanks would not be complete with out a giant thank you to Walt Holifield.  Walt, your support, friendship and contributions are greatly appreciated! 
Many others need to be mentioned here are a few, Mike Kester for his great paint job, Gary Peters, Phil Whittiker, Dave Matthew's, and last but not least Bill Merrick.

The original intention of this car was to make a few exhibition runs at some meets through the year.  After witnessing the time and effort that was put in by so many the thought to run it down the track and risk any sort of damage.

I have already started working on my next project from he past, my 1970 GTO Judge race car.  You might remember that I ran this car in F/Stock Automatic.  With any luck we will have it done for Pontiac's in the Park next year. It will be powered by a Ram Air IV.  I would like to see a combination that can run in the mid 10's.  Check back for its progress.

Do not miss January's edition of Hemmings Magazine.  The 66 race car will be featured.

GENERAL INFORMATION  The reason for the sale of this extremely rare car is because of Milt's desire to retire.  Milt is also involved with his latest project, a replica of the 66 Royal race car.  The reserve price will be kept confidential.   We do reserve the right to end the auction early for a local sale. We expect any serious bidder to contact us and make arrangements to view this car. This car is available anytime to any bidder for inspection.  Please call or write for an appointment. We will assist in delivery at the cost of the winning bidder.  We would like to add that we are also open to a partial trade with another classic GTO.
  • HISTORY  When Schornack Racing was founded in 2001, one of the first things we did was purchase this car. Since we have owned it we have put countless hours and care into it to bring it to its current condition.  We have logged about 1300 miles.  The mileage has been documented authentic by the previous owner who purchased this car from Jim Wangers.  This car originally had a  400 Ram Air IV.  In 1970 Milt worked for himself at Royal Automotive, just after Royal Pontiac was sold. Milt was under contract to help Pontiac Motor Division in the development and drag racing efforts with the new Ram Air V. Milt's job was to help to get this Ram Air V Pontiac classified properly in N.H.R.A. drag racing.  Since vehicles were in short supply at engineering he borrowed a GTO from one of his friends. Royal Automotive fitted this GTO with a Ram Air V tunnel port engine and modified it strictly for drag racing. This car was set up to convince Pontiac product planning to build a limited production.  The Ram Air V engine was factory rated at 380 HP.  N.H.R.A. would refractor this rating to 420 - 425 hp.   In 1970, this car had many modifications to make it more competitive, such as mounting the battery in the trunk for weight transfer,  installing larger front tires for better rollout on the starting line, a blueprinted solid lifter cam, rear axle changed from 3:90 to 4:11,  Hurst high performance shock absorbers, electric fuel pump, and the center console and power steering were removed to save weight.  We still possess the old shocks, and power steering pump. This car in street trim turned a best time of  12.66 at over 110 mph with closed exhaust and street tires. After Pontiac dropped all funding and development for the Ram Air V engine, Milt and his friend continued to street race the car independently.  In 1971 this car was put into storage after a faulty wrist pin walked out and scored one of the cylinder walls destroying the engine block . The car was  disassembled and the parts were left in the trunk until we purchased it in 2001.
  • BODY The body and frame is un-restored original from the factory. The paint is original espresso brown with the Royal Bobcat paint treatment in Hurst gold. (Hurst Gold is not a GM color, the car was painted Hurst gold for Royal Automotive) The doors, hood and deck lid close like they are new. They are free of rust.  Since 2001 Schornack Racing has showcased this Ram Air V around the country. Many people have commented on the excellent condition of the entire body.  The most popular question about the body has been about the type of restoration.  Some would like to see a complete body off reservation.  About 65% say it is best just the way it sits.  The debate to restore it continues. The link is on the bottom of the home page.  The car did suffer a fender bender after the engine was originally installed in 1970. Because of this the rear bumper and passenger quarter panel had to be replaced. Every other panel on the car is the original. The glass is in fantastic shape with only light scratches on the drivers side quarter window. 
  • INTERIOR  The interior is free of any rips or tears.  Not to repeat myself too often but it was stored for over 30 years inside a garage!  Therefore it did not receive any sun damage nor was it abused in any way.  The clock, fuel gauge, speedometer, tach, am radio, heater, fan motor, interior courtesy lights,cigarette lighter, and turn signal indicators all work great.
  • ENGINE    Pontiac 440 Cubic Inch power plant, (this engine bore, instead of the 400, is a direct result of testing by myself and the Royal race team at Hollywood Florida in 1969), Ram Air V heads and intake,   Holley carb,  Custom built headers with 2.5 inch exhaust and X pipe,   General Knetics special grind camshaft,  Comp cam roller tip rockers,  Turbo 400 transmission w/2000 stall. 
  • ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT  Aluminum Hustler 5 spoke custom wheels, Oil pressure and temp gauge, Hust dual gate shifter.
