Farewell Pontiac
posted: June 1, 2009
Follow-up to Carl's post. Ole' Goats are passing by as GM says good-bye to Pontiac. I did own a '68 GTO years ago. I know their time has past, but the memories are real. I couldn't add the cool Judge logo in this illustration for copyright reasons. The cars that sport the Pontiac logo today just leave my jaw on the ground in disblief.

Oh man, that's nice! Doug Fraser meets Big Daddy Roth. That's the kind of drawing chops I dreamed of in public school, the doodles that lined the margins of my notebooks. Never had the pleasure of owning the dream, Doug. Glad you survived.

Nice Doug!

Wow, that is badass!! I love it all, but especially the way you did the rear hubcap. I see no driver, only hands...is this BD Roth meets Dennis Weaver in the Duel sequel?

Reminds of the ole CARTOONS mag but 10 times more "badass"!

I know the memories of that 68 GTO are accompanied by the sounds of "Ballroom Blitz" on the 8-track. Nice drawing.

Hot Rod, and Car Craft magazines were prized possessions, and the copies of CARtoons were read to a dog eared state. The work of Alex Toth kept my adolesent brain revving. Paul, no eight track in it, but I was cruising Desolation Boulevard.

I have never owned a REAL Pontiac, old or new. BUT I do own this Fraser original, and it is hanging on the wall right behind me. Thanks Mr. F.
