Lucas Oil Offroad Expo 2010: James Garner’s “Goodyear Grabber” Olds

On display at the 2010 Lucas Oil Offroad Expo in Pomona, California on October 8 and 9 was the “Goodyear Grabber” 1970 Olds 442 as driven by Jim Garner in the 1969 Baja 1000 and Vic Hickey built. Now owned by Ron Johnson (Hickey Racing) the 100% correct restoration was completed in time for Rod Hall to drive it in the NORRA 1000 event. Arturo Hernandez of Los Valientes Tequila was proud to display the Goodyear Grabber in his booth.

Any fan of vintage desert racing will love these videos.


Great slideshow with excellent pics of Jimmy Garner and Rod Hall!
