President’s Message….
The weather has been incredible for us car enthusiasts and I am sure all of you have been enjoying your cars
by taking in a car show, cruise night or just cruising around town. Be sure to check out our cruise night and
upcoming show listings! The Long Island GTO Club is a part of two upcoming shows: Sun Auto GTO,
Camaro & G8 show in August and The Hagerman Fire Department show in September.
Speaking of car shows, our annual Car-B-Que was an amazing show! It was a full house again this year, with
the total show cars on the field maxing out at 275! Thank you to all that participated and volunteered their
time to put on the show! We have been asked by many of our show goers to change our location to accom-
modate more cars and spectators and we are reviewing our options. Our club feels that Crab Meadow Beach
is a great spot for the show and we would like to hear feedback from you on this issue. Another job well done
by the volunteers! A very special thank you to Janet and Bob Serrao on their hard work to make this show
happen. The show would not go on without these two very dedicated people! Thank you to Lori Kaiser, Jen
Vagnone, Joe Fucci and Jeanine Greaux for running our booth - Thank you Dennis “The Goatman” Kulak for
doing a grrr-eat job running the show from the stage as DJ and MC of the event and getting us in touch with
LCD (band #2) - to Chris Moss and BA for getting us in touch with Strange But Surf (Band #2) who were
amazing - thank you to LCD (band #1) and to Strange But Surf (band #2) for their great music - to Kevin
Lacinski for our flyer and web work - to our judges, Keith Wilnauer, Perry Kaiser, Mike Stillwagon, Sal Agusti-
nacia, and Bob Spinnachia who had the pleasure of judging some truly beautiful cars on our field - to Steve
Calabrese for running the 50/50 and taking care of our vendors, and to Carolyn Maiale for assisting Steve, to
our front gate workers, Kevin Lacinski, Mike Serrao, John Serrao, Dan Fiore, John Kappelman and to Perry
Kaiser for stepping in to help, and Denise Gallo and Mike Maiale for getting the goodie bags out and stepping
in to help wherever we needed it - to our photographer Jim Murray and his side kick Rob Heicklen - to our
parking staff Gary Heicklen, Rich Sidell, Sal Maiale, Bob Corazzini, to Charlie, Adrianna and Maryanne for
taking care of the breakfast booth and helping wherever we needed help - to Kevin Gelmin and Donna at
Crown Trophy for our beautiful trophies and plaques and for having patience with us - to Outback for their
amazing food and service and of course, the Town of Huntington and all those involved with making this show
happen! The show is a lot of work to put on but it is well worth it when you see how many people truly enjoy
the show and the best moment - when we donate the money to A Mother’s Kiss.

                         THE RAM AIR V

Undoubtedly the most mystical engine ever produced by Pontiac, or any other manufacturer for that matter,
was the Ram Air V. Its major misfortune was that it never had a chassis to call home, since it was never re-
leased from the factory in a production automobile. But as you will learn this hasn’t stopped the craze for the
Ram Air V and installing a factory “would have been” correct Ram Air V in an “appropriate for production” year
The Ram Air V actually came in several forms, and there were additional Ram Air engines beyond the Ran
Air V. The complete production engines that were created for sale, came in the 303,366 and 400 sizes. The
303 was designated for Trans Am racing in the F, or Firebird body. The 366 was designated for NASCAR
applications in the A body, or more commonly, the Tempest series body. The 400 was the originally devel-
oped Ram Air V engine, and was designated for production in the GTO.
In addition to these engines, others were developed but never sold as complete units in the crate. These are
the Ram Air VI and the Ram Air VII. They were both based upon the 428-CID engine. The Ram Air VI was the
same as the single four-barrel Ram Air V though in a 428-CID size.

A Mother's Kiss is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the families of childhood cancer patients. Since 1994
it has been our goal to help these very special families on both an emotional and financial level.
The initial diagnosis of pediatric cancer can set a young family into a tailspin. Aside from the fears associated with
the sickness, families are forced to make very difficult decisions. One parent will often need to leave their job to
care for the child in this very crucial time. Family finances and emotional strengths are tested to the limit.
Please tour our site to see what A Mother's Kiss is all about and how we help our special friends. And just as im-
portant, how you can help to make a difference in the lives of childhood cancer patients and their families.
