1963 Pontiac Tempest Daytona Speed Week Diecast-SOLD OUT

The 250 mile Challenge cup race was a way for NASCAR to generate money through ticket sales during Speed Week and to bring in a different crowd who wanted to see exotics being raced.

Those people came for the exotics like the Ferrari GTO but instead got to see one of Pontiac’s great shining moments in racing. Right out of the gate Goldsmith let everyone know the Tempest meant business by putting the Tempest on the pole and by a signifigant margin. From the start the hammer was laid down and that 421ci motor began to scream away from the competition.

Goldsmith dominated the entire race passing the mystery 427 Corvettes and lapping a Ferrari 8 times! By the end of the race he had lapped the second place finisher, AJ Foyt in a Corvette twice before the race was over! He won by an incredible 5 miles over the competition! This was one of the crowing achievements in Pontiacs history that few were privileged enough to witness first hand. ACME is proud to bring this moment in history back to life with it’s all new 1:18 replica of the 1963 Super Duty Tempest that shocked the world.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
