First off let me appologize if this has been shown before. I have been in search of a Summers bros Goldenrod poster for a while. I thought I would check the Henry Ford Museum gift shop online. I was unable to find a poster but i did come across a pretty remarkable ceramic model. It is to rich for my at $200 but I thought I would post it in case someone was interested. Here is the link

Have you tried to ask Bill Summers about a Goldenrod poster? He's a real nice guy to talk to.

I am at the museum frequently and have seen the model.
It is very much worth the $200  (about 24" long)

I was able to get to the NHRA museum in Pomona last summer and bought one of the ceramic models of the Goldenrod that they had there. It's great piece, I also bought Mickey Thompson's Challenger ceramic model. I have them in a display case along with Craig Breedlove's last jet liner in my living room. Great historical pieces, all of which I have admired for many years.

Wait until you see the Speed Demon model. Due soon, according to Ron.

They need to get the paint colors right.

I don't have a poster but I have a black and white picture, about 9 X 7, of this shot, I hope it attaches......

If your interested send me your snail mail address and I'll put it in the mail.
