S.E.M.A. (Specialty Equipment Market Association) in
May, 1996 held a "Salute to Motorsports and
Automotive Performance" commemorating the 100th
anniversary of the automobile. Peggy Sue was displayed at the
Smithsonian National Museum of American
History and the front lawn of Capitol Hill in
Charlotte Motor Speedway (Lowes) in September ‘96 held a
tribute to the 100th anniversary of the
automobile called "100 Years & Beyond" in which Peggy Sue was a
Carlisle "All-GM Nationals" June 29-July 1, 2001. Peggy
Sue was an "Invitational Car" and gained a
DIE CAST CREATION:
Based on the relationship between
Peggy Sue Gerron and John Langford, and that the song "Peggy Sue" by
Buddy Holly and the Crickets was released in 1957, an opportunity
arose to create a "50th Anniversary" die cast depicting both.
Since the "50th Anniversary"
represents the "Golden Anniversary" and that the 1957 Chevrolet Bel
Air was the only model year to have 'gold' trim, it became apparent
that we were blessed with an extraordinary opportunity.
After researching the 1957 Bel
Air die cast we found that no other die cast in the world had the
proper color combination or detail depicting the real 1957 Chevrolet
Bel Air Convertible "Peggy Sue" located in a Dallas, TX museum.
It was agreed to produce a die
cast befitting the legendary car and capturing the spirit of 'Peggy
Sue' resulting in a "Perfect Match".
2007 "Peggy Sue LLC" formed.
