Jim Wangers’ Glory Days

Greg Zyla
Q: Thanks for the information on the GTO in your recent Collector Car Corner.
I’ve read Jim Wangers’ “Glory Days” and it really is a fine book on the state of Detroit and high performance back  “in the days.” Gary P., Pennsylvania.
A: Thanks Gary. Jim Wangers is doing well, and I can still see him speed shifting the Royal Pontiac 421 full size Pontiacs in 1962 and 1963 out of Ace Wilson’s Royal Oak Michigan Pontiac dealership.
I also remember a 1/24 model of the Royal Pontiac, which I built back in 1963 I believe. For readers that may have missed the column, please check Jim out at www.geetotiger.com for more information.
