<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: ds1</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Got to see it at Carlisle this year. Saw it race at Maple Grove once at an all Pontiac event after our 64 Convertible was finished. Also talked to an original owner of a 64 Convertible from Ohio. It was a nice event for Carlisle. </div></div>

Looks like a great event! Had to sit this one out, unfortunately, though Scott kindly brought the car over to share.

Cool you got to see it run ...!

It's a really cool presentation, Bruce. Jim was tasked by Pontiac with selecting a dealership that would serve as an outlet for special hi-perf. cars, parts and technologies - kind of a precursor to Yenko, Berger, Nickey, Mr. Norms, etc. - and he filled us in on why Royal was chosen - shared some cool first-hand stories about how things went along the way - and then how and why it went away. Glad to have had the chance to attend that one!

Hope so, Bruce, that'd be cool. Was told the museum taped the audio and are going to build a podcast with Jim's PowerPoint presentation. Will report back w/that if I come across it.

Here's one from the 50th at the same spot last year - projector threw a rod, but JW winged it like a champ ...
