Having a Tiger under the hood, putting a Tiger in your tank, and eating Tigers were big ad campaigns back in the day. This gas station even painted their service car up as a tiger to advertise their gasoline.
By 1971 Bill Corwin had surrendered to the gas sippers and featured this gem. In reality these cars sold really well. Bill even jazzed this one up with some sweet wheels. Okay enough of this, its still a Pinto.
Storefront dealership again. I think I like the looks of this style of dealer the best. Close to the street, a side walk out in front, almost like going shopping for a new car. Notice the sign above the service entrance, "Tiger Eaters for 66". That GTO ad slogan really hit the mark didnt it. Everyone responded with a Tiger Eater.
Rare car but not a rare sight. A lot of these cars sat on the dealer lot for a long time. Big wing, nose cone, and a hot running big block were not exactly what everyone was looking for. Now they command big money, but like a lot of low production muscle cars, they were not loved much when new.
Im guessing that every car at "Stick City" had a manual transmission. I wish more people built Corvettes that looked like they really did back in the late 60s Instead of flaring the wheel openings this guy raised the car to clear those big tires.
