Royal Pontiac 1966 GTO GeeTO Tiger

 Drag racing fans remember the famous 1966 GeeTO Tiger from Royal Pontiac of Royal Oaks, MI. Dressed up in his tiger suit, the mystery driver would challenge fans to a match race in identically prepared '66 Pontiac GTOs. It was the brainchild of promotion-minded Jim Wangers and it was a huge hit with the fans. Sometimes, to their delight, the Tiger wouldn't win.

The identically prepared Royal Pontiac GTOs toured the Midwest and made 17 appearances in 1966. It ended with the Royal GTOs making a final run

at the National in Indianapolis.


Today, Jim Wangers is still promoting Pontiac and the famous GeeTO Tiger. The two of them make appearances across the country, thrilling drag racing fans everywhere.
