Had Jim Wangers sign my car yesterday!

Thought I would share a couple pictures from the A.E. Golden Pontiac show in Reading Pa. on Sunday. They had Jim Wangers & Dave Anderson there as guest .
Jim had a great presentation on the history of how the name "Wide-track Pontiac" came about.
Afterwards Jim was nice enough to sign a couple of our cars !
Here are a few pics of Jim signing my car & one with a few members of The SVGTOTigers club with Jim.
I was a pretty neat day for sure!

Brent!!!

For the man who was responsible for the Judge to sign it, it's is the icing on the cake.

I wish everyone could see this car, you'd be hard pressed to find many others as done as well as this one. It's a crowd pleaser and multiple award winning car.
AWESOME!!

In the fourth picture if you look closely you can see a blue 68. It seems to be overshadowed by this Judge. ! Seriously, this was a great day and hearing Jim tell his stories about the first Judge prototype to Brent was great. (I believe they used a limelight green 69 and painted it Orange) What a great show!!!

In all the stories I've heard from people who have met Jim Wangers, he always comes across as a decent guy who simply loves Pontiacs, like most of us. Someday, I've got to get him to sign my car..........

I've never met Jim Wangers, but I'd like to. He is a true American Icon, and has played a huge part in the developement and marketing of great high performance Pontiacs. A drag racer, a consultant, a marketing expert, and a gearhead's gearhead, he is living, breathing history. I have a friend who met him at a Pontiac event about 18 years ago, and same thing: the man is the real deal. I don't have a Judge, but he could sign my '65 or my '67 any time!!
