Long legs and a heavy right boot: Jungle Jim and Jungle Pam
Character, flair and charisma. Classic motorsport has them in spades, and that’s what makes it so compelling even today. Responsible for this this character, are the spirited and charismatic heroes and heroines for whom motorsport is life. Like “Jungle Jim” Liberman and “Jungle Pam” Hardy, who may be the most out there of them all.
The pair ruled ‘70s funny car drag racing. Jungle Jim was a well-known showman, famous for poppin’ huge wheelstands and tearing down the drag strip at full speed in reverse, and when he hired the leggy, buxom Jungle Pam to be his staging partner, the pair was elevated to drag racing royalty. They were pure fun, spirit and entertainment, and the fans loved it.
Who would’ve thought the combination of high-speed, high-octane racing, burning rubber, untameable sideburns and sexy women would’ve been such a success? Enjoy the pics and let us know about your favourite motorsport characters in the comments!
