    Cool Jim Wangers GTO

    Very cool project we were chosen to be involved with. The Jim Wangers GTO from Big 3 Performance is a 69 GTO refitted with all of todays modern performance and styling cues. They will be taking orders on 18 of these monsters at the begining of March, 2010; all including a personalized serial build plaque from third_shift|studios custom car emblems. Fender + grille emblems were supplied by Motorhead Jewelry.

    EDIT: HPP magazine did a full road course/drag test on it that will be released in their July issue (On Shelves April 19th) so keep an eye out as it is a pretty good feature for info. It blew a 2010 camaro SS, and a Z06 vette out of the water on the road course!

    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    jaison....where'd they put that decal at? Looks like it's on a body crease or something and the ends aren't sticking down or is that an illusion in the paint? Is that the one under the hood and a reflection or something?

    The first 2 pix are of the plaque but it's not attached-they are just close ups shot by my productiong guy. The plaque is attached to the radiator shrowd-you can see it in pic 3.

    ok, that makes sense. I also noticed the color was all wrong but when you start changing the lighting sometimes those colors in pics will fool ya. Makes sense now.

    I'm with ya. I saw Wangers car in person this past November at Goodguys. It honestly didn't do alot for me. I'd hate to think what it would cost too.
    I'm more of a go fast/stock appearing kinda guy.
