    1959 Pontiac Challenger I - Racing Legend Mickey Thompson

    Insights From A New Book: Mickey Thompson--The Fast Life And Tragic Death Of A Racing LegendAs Mickey and Judy Thompson pulled into the half-moon driveway of General Motors Vice President and former Pontiac Division GM Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen (who had just moved to Chevrolet), Judy couldn't help but admire the giant white columns surrounding the home's beautiful main entrance. She pictured a perfectly dressed, manicured, and well-mannered butler standing in wait to open the door. Her knees knocking and her palms sweating, her nerves were getting the best of her. The only wealthy people she had seen were in the movies.
