Hauled "The 1974 Chicago Auto Show Car" to the POCI Pontiac Convention in Spearfish SD.
Won 1st Place and received an overwhelming response from all who attended.
Had 4 photographers taking photo shoots of the car!
Tom Demuaro with High Performance Pontiac commented "That car really draws a crowd".
Jim Wangers signed his new book and on the page that mentions the Chicago show car he wrote "The Chicago Auto Show Car" is indeed the most famous pontiac show car ever!"
Met Rocky Rotella and found out that the distributor is pre HEI and only made between 1972-74 and that no other Super Duties had a unitized ignition. He also noted that the lugs on the car were anidized gold to go with the first gold honeycomb wheels. Rocky took pictures to go in his upcoming article on the "1976 50th anniversary edition" TA. I Found out through Rocky that the car was on the cover of June 1974 "Super Stock" magazine. I have always had a picture of that cover but thought it was a promotional poster. Thank you Rocky.
Met Larry Deroy a freelance photographer that actually saw the car at the Chicago Auto Show in 1974! Larry took lots of good photos of car.
Talked with Don Keefe about the car coming out in a future issue of " Smoke Signals". Don also took photos of car.
Had a great time and met alot of great people!
