Still pretty good looking.
I still keep all my DC posters, decals, catalogs and Mopar Performance magazines.
The year 1984 was significant for a return to high-performance with the 2.2L turbo.
If only I could age so well.
I still have my personally signed "Claudia" poster!
Where were the pics taken?
Thank you Fast Eddie!
My bad, Eddie!
(Eddie sent this to me the day before my Dad's funeral and I completely forgot about posting these, sorry!)
Condolences to you on the death of your Dad.........................God bless you and all your family!
I don't guess with the current head of performance marketing, that we'll be seeing any eye-catching women attached to the company's performance advertising. Come to think of it, we haven't had much performance to advertise about which keeps me wondering why spend company funds to even have such a position?
If that poster came out in 1984, then it carried on a long tradition of using attractive women in Chrysler's advertising for over 20 years, though they were dressed a little more conservatively to appeal to a more general audience. Probably not many of you can recall these very attractive women who were part of the "Dodge Fever" and "Dodge Rebellion" ad campaigns of the mid 1960s.
The petite blonde was Pam Austin, IIRC, and was also seen in TV ads, usually hanging in precarious positions and begging to be rescued from "dull" cars by attractive Dodges. She went on to a career in movies, as did the dark haired girl that replaced her (I can't recall her name right now). The ads won multiple awards and may have helped propel Dodge sales increases in the 60s (for those that don't believe that Dodge's heavy participation in motorsports contributed). The ads certainly drew the attention of the guys in my age group at that time. I don't think that ads showing a guy talking to a horse would have gotten a second look from us back then. It doesn't work for the people I hang out with now - no matter what age they are.
Times have certainly changed from the "Madmen" era!
At MIS this year.
Same girl (or should I say girls)?
Um... Hellcat? SRT8? 800 lb-ft Cummins diesel?
The pic was taken in highland park, bldg 128, 3rd floor.
I still have my autographed photo. There were a lot of trips to the water fountain that day.
Yesterday - at the WPC MoPar Swap Meet in Mt. Clemens, MI
Yes - I am in mid blink, not asleep at the wheel!
She was VERY charming. Maybe she'd be up for posing with my race car some day?
I was on google looking for something specific when I came across this. WOW!!! Pretty Cool! Thank you!
You are the same "Claudia" as featured on the 1984 poster I presume (?).
You're welcome. Are you going to be at the WPC swap meet this January?
Someplace, I have a few pics when you were Miss Autorama, I believe from 1982 or 3. If I can find them, I'll give them to you.
How can I find these old school posters, would be pretty cool to hand one or two
Lots of stuff like that for sale on e-Bay, though I don't know if it will match exactly what you are looking for. Prepare to spend a lot of time searching - I've been through over 1,000 pages looking for interesting Mopar racing/performance memorabilia that's for sale.
Yeah I already spent hours in front of the laptop, these are hard to find. However, that's what makes it worth of
