    Description

    The Weekend Warriors (Champion, 1966). One Sheet (28" X 44").
    Little is known about this film, save what is revealed by this stunning, eye-catching poster. The weekend warriors in question are drag racers, and it appears that this picture was a documentary about racing, filmed at the National Hot Rod Association Championships in 1966 and sadly, now lost. Included in this film were appearances by the Ramchargers, Bobby Langley, Dick Harrell, Tom McEwen, Jim Dunn, and Tommy Ivo, among many others. The poster, which is silkscreened in a striking day-glo pink, is slightly oversized compared to a standard one sheet. It shows a tear in the right border, light fold wear, pinpoint crossfold separation, and minor edge staining, but remains a very desirable and attractive piece for any fan of classic drag racing. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
