Here is the press release sent to High Performance Pontiac on the new 2009 Jim Wangers Performance GTO. What do you think? Post your comments.
First rendering of Jim Wangers/Big 3 Performance GTO is looking like a home run. Big 3 swings for the fences with a more aggressive approach to the now common protouring movement.
Over the past three months, Jim Wangers Productions and Big 3 Performance spent countless hours fine tuning a modernized interpretation of Pontiac’s American Icon, the 1969 GTO Judge. Through the illustration shown above, you can see that styling and function working hand in hand was a major consideration in the design of the Wangers Edition GTO.
The subtle placement of Jim Wangers Signature in the grille, the bold billet Judge badge on the fender and the slimmed Judge body stripe are just a few of many small touches added to the Goat’s new look. The aggressive restyling of the hood scoops hint towards a deep breathing V8 under the hood while the not so subtle openings in the chin spoiler look to provide increased ventilation for perhaps a larger brake system. The projector style fog lights help to give the front end a modern look while the restyled interpretation of a rally 2 wheel all but screams Pontiac heritage. Big 3’s V.P of Sales and Marketing, Anthony Stephenson, assures us this is just a taste of things to come.
