The Southern California Gathering of Goats and Jim Wangers, the "Godfather of the GTO" invite you to the Wangers' Collection in Oceanside, CA for a musclecar celebration—the Tour de Wangers Show 'n Shine on November 14, 2010!

As the “ad man” for Pontiac during its glory days, Wangers was notorious for his outlandish GTO promotions as well as his late night “outings” on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue where Pontiac’s prowess was proven time and time again. Our government would have nothing of that today—V8 performance is a not politically correct. However, thanks to enthusiasts like you, the American Musclecar lives—and that is what Tour de Wangers is all about—celebrating the performance heritage of Detroit.

You will not want to miss this special event. Along with your own very special American performance car, there will be quite a few specialty cars on display for some great collectors in the West. Already confirmed is the infamous '64 GTO...the Car and Driver magazine test car.

David Newhardt, automotive photographer and author of the books GTO and Muscle will be joining us with his books and will be autographing books for purchase. Robert Genat, author of the recently released book Woodward Avenue: Cruising the Legendary Strip will also be appearing and he too will be autographing books for purchase.

On the art front, Art "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, the artist who with his partner Van Kaufman produced all of those wonderful Wide-Track ads of the 60s will be displaying his pieces of art that are available for purchase.

Join us as we salute the great American Musclecar, its offspring, cousins and ancestors at Tour de Wangers 2010. Open to ALL American Performance Cars; Pontiacs, Chevrolets, Chryslers, Oldsmobiles, Fords, Dodges, Buicks, Plymouth, etc. If it is an American car and it “hauls” then we want you to bring it on out to Tour de Wangers in Oceanside on November 14th
