Richard Petty / Goodyear - Motor Trend July 1982

A number of years ago I started collecting car magazines from the late 1970s and early 1980s, to salvage their advertisements for sale on eBay. This one – for some reason – never got sold!

Richard Petty is one of the best-known racers in NASCAR. He is still involved with racing, only not behind the wheel. The Petty family is firmly planted both in the fabric and legend of the sport, with multiple generations being involved.

The King is leaning against a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, available with a fuel-injected 5.0 liter V8 and automatic transmission.
