How many of you have seen one of these before??
If you have a copy of the book called " THE BIG Little GTO
Book." by Albert Drake from 1982. You would have it on page 87 at least. After seeing it in the book the hunt was on!!
Had been looking for it 4 to 5 years with no luck. Finally I see a postcard show listed here in Wichita area. I go to it and start going around to all the booths asking about it.. One guy finally says yes I know what you are looking for.. But I don't carry it with me because it is a over sized card.
I was looking for a standard size 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 and this one was 5 1/2 by 8 1/2.. Now the 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 cards can be mailed at a postcard postage rate but this 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 card would need to be mailed at a 1st class postage rate..
Around 1992 the Post Office changed the size of the post card to 4" by 6" from the 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 size, guess 4 by 6 worked better in the new machines they were starting to use. These are still not as big as this three kinds of tigers card.
I was able to make a deal. And he send me one. You know these dealership cards had the names of the dealership printed on the back also. This one was from Majestic Pontiac, Los Angeles, California. If someone wants to see a pic of the back of the card too, Just ask.. Les
