Very, very cool stuff. Hard to remember they were “just cars” at one point.

Here comes some Cheetah stuff, another amazing chapter of the Bill Thomas story!
A few twists but Newspaper articles to follow are pretty much chronological from 10/63 Cheetah racing debut on to Sale ads of later years w/ a mixture of original cars and others.
On w/ the show and anyone please feel free to speak up w/ questions and/or add more info.

Before we get too far along, here’s a few earlier Bill Thomas ads…some w/ no name but it’s his Ph.#.
Very cool cars in the ads but very interesting is the Friendly Chevrolet Rialto ad from March of ‘63 who were involved w/ BT’s first Cheetahs but was ‘Thom Scat’ an early Cheetah name or another racer they were building?
More to come!
