Online Exclusive: The Last of the Royal Bloodline: AutoWorld’s 1969 Royal Bobcat GTO

Oct 28, 2014 No Comments by

For enthusiasts in the 1960s Royal Pontiac was indeed the regal palace of Poncho performance. Tapped as the official factory-supported skunkworks by new Pontiac general manager Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen and marketing maven Jim Wangers (of GTO fame) in 1959 to help build the brand into a performance leader, Royal-campaigned Super Duty Pontiacs were soon winning [...]

Photo your Diecast like a Pro!

Aug 25, 2014 No Comments by

Diecast models are all about scale realism—capturing the look of a full-size vehicle authentically in scale is an art. It is not unlike capturing a photo, which is why diecast lends itself so well to photography. That—and the proliferation of relatively high-quality digital cameras—is why so many collectors are moved to document their collections in [...]

In 1968 Chrysler Corporation was riding a Hemi-powered wave of success.
