Merry Christmas!December 23, 2010
Dear ,

First and foremost, we would like to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!  We are starting to look forward to the 2011 season as we are starting to get our game plan together ........... 


KRE is making progress on the new WARP 6 castings as I am writing you this letter.  They are currently working on the prototype motor which will hopefully hit the dyno in the next few weeks.  To say we are excited here at Tin Indian Performance is a complete UNDERSTATEMENT!

Some things are worth waiting for -- and that was the case with the new Mellott Racing '65 Pro Mod GTO. After more than 5 years of being under construction it finally hit the race track in mid 2010. The Mellotts are very happy with the build results and excited with the inaugural passes they were able to make even though they were never afforded the opportunity to make a full power 1/4 mile hit with the car. Having said that the Pontiac Gods smiled on the Mellott Racing Team, the car and the driver, as they all performed as well as could be expected for the first shake down passes. They were very pleased the car went straight and ran a 6.84 with an early shut off. The team is excited as they look forward to the 2011 season and the opportunity to continue the learning curve on the new combination.
For anyone who saw the GTO at the Summit Motorsports Park, Ames Tri-Power Pontiac Nationals in August it was evident that this is no stock bodied car. It has been chopped, lowered, stretched, laid back, narrowed and made slightly more aerodynamics. Dillinger Pro Cars of New York built the car, Kauffman Racing Equipment of Glenmont Ohio takes the credit for the Engine and Keens Body Shop of Columbus Ohio made the body look slick, like it was never cut. Jan-Cen of New York set up the fuel system and offered assistance with the clutch tune. Tin Indian Performance from Uniontown Ohio assisted with the at track work, parts supply and was very helpful with the data acquisition.

"We can't say enough about the people that have helped and continue to help with this project. It seems only fitting to recognize them, for with out their help and support we would not been able to finish and campaign the car. First my wife Barb who supports this whole racing adventure. The Kauffmans, Steve, Mark and Jeff, Kevin Swaney, Joe Hedrick, Tim Miles, Reggie Walters, Patrick Budd, Nick Carleton, Chris Panny, Mike Janis, Jeff Fowler, Jay Keen, Sam Gottier, Camp Stanley." ~ Bill Mellott
