The Golden Commandos club was formed in 1962 by a small group of car enthusiasts, including technicians, mechanics and engineers. Soon, the group grew to include policemen, lawyers and college students, all sharing a passion for his speed automobiles.
Known in Michigan as 'Detroit's own Golden Commandos,' the team continually achieved new racing innovation, thus promoting automakers' 'win on Sunday - Sell on Monday' marketing philosophy.
In 1965, the Golden Commandos were amongst the first to produce altered wheelbase drag cars, including this 1965 Plymouth, contributing a lasting impact on the sport of drag racing. The altered wheelbase cars became known as 'Funny Cars' because of the peculiar appearance of their forward shifted front wheels and rear axle. 'Detroit's own Golden Commandos' won within the Únlimited Class at the Super Stock Magazine's 1965 meet.
The Commandos worked hard during the little free time they enjoyed outside of their full-time jobs, and their immense efforts were focused solely on having fun at the tracks....and winning.Source - Vehicle Owner
