Pontiac Muscle Car Art Prints
From Automotive Artist K. Scott Teeters
1964 Pontiac GTO - John Z. DeLorean was one of the first automotive marketing guys to accurately take the temperature of the emerging street scene. DeLorean simply spent some evenings on Woodward Avenue and took notes. He noticed that the street racer-types were using mag wheels, loud mufflers, extra carburetors, a tachometer, and a Hurst shifter.
1965 GTO - Although great things were to come for the GTO, as early as ‘65, the car looked like it was “done.” The GTO had all the right parts for go and show. It had a cool attitude and was quickly nick-named, “the Goat.”
1966 Pontiac GTO - John DeLorean’s ‘64 GTO is credited as the first “official” muscle car. By ‘66, the GTO had not only become a cultural happening, but had grown into a very well balanced street performance car. The GTO had the right combination of great looks, terrific interior trim, a cool name, a reasonable price, and solid street performance.
1968 GTO - This was one of the toughest-looking GTOs ever made. Complete, but not over-done. “The Judge” option also arrived in ‘69 giving GTO buyers yet another option to choose from for their Goat. Pontiac had its second best year for the GTO in ‘68. They sold 87,684 units. - KST
1969 Pontiac Trans-Am Firebird - It was a little odd that Pontiac was paying the SCCA a royalty to use the “Trans-Am” name for their “racing option” Firebird, yet Chevy was dominating the Trans-Am racing series. Much of that had to do with Chevrolet’s back-door relationship with numerous Chevy road racing teams. It also helped that they had the best sports sedan team management of the time - the Penske Racing Team.
1970-1/2 Pontiac Trans-Am Firebird - When the 70-1/2 Camaro and Firebird was first shown to the automotive press, they went nuts! “Where did these designs come from, Ferrari or Maseratti?” was the question most asked. But everyone’s eye went to the white Firebird with the single blue stripe over the hood, top, and rear deck. You know, the Trans-Am!
