These were all real many years ago.  Most have probably seen these, but betting Kiwi and others have not.   ENJOY

These are actual billboards in Detroit, Michigan put up by GM. This is definitely cool!

I've written about this famous 1968 Pontiac GTO / Woodward Ave ad before. It was also turned into a billboard ad over Woodward Ave near Birmingham, where this photo/airbrished ad was taken.

The billboard read "To Woodward. From Pontiac. With Love". 

This ad so infurated the Birmingham city council that they wrote a scathing letter to the GM Board of Directors, cut down the trees and removed this turnaround within the city limits.

why did it piss them off Frosty ??🙄

Oh wow!! priceless mate:stars::dancingpontiac:

That now, is a piece of history:dancingpontiac:

super cool 👍

Clearly their was no petrol heads on the Birmingham city council  back in the late sixties, which in its self is sad.🙄

i hope the locals voted more like minded people onto that council in future years !

Because now.... having a car event in your area is a major cash cow for local business... ie councils love hot rodders and their events now = cash flow !!

Legal street drags, they where and are the best draw cards for bringing punters into your town !
