Susan Kiger - Never Before Seen Photos

In response to my piece on whatever happened to former Playboy Playmate and actress Susan Lynn Kiger, I've had several readers post comments and send me messages telling me of times they spent with the lovely Miss January 1977. Some said they had the pleasure of knowing Susan personally, while others shared their recollections of meeting her at promotional events and fan signings during her all-too-brief modeling and acting heyday.

Tony M., a reader who met Susan a little more than a year after her Playmate issue hit the stands, sent me the photo scans you see here. He took the photos during Susan's appearance at the 1978 Sacramento Autorama car show, which is an annual event still held to this day. Tony's also been gracious enough to allow me to publish these photos here, for the first time anywhere.

In Tony's words:
Me and my brother Ron met Susan at an auto show in Sacramento called the Autorama, in 1978. She was doing a "Meet a Playmate" event at the show. She was kind enough to take several photos with us. Susan was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen! I was around 19 at the time. The fellow with the beard was the Autorama promoter, Blackie. The other guy is my brother Ron. The event was kinda slow, so Blackie let us hang out with them. Yea Blackie!

I befriended Susan and she gave me her address in LA to send her some of the pictures I took. She sent back some signed pictures and told me she didn't get selected as Playmate of the Year (for 1978). We corresponded a few times but I lost touch with her a long time ago. We never dated, I was just in the right place at the right time, I guess.
Susan, if you're reading this and would like to send Tony a hello, just sent me a message through the "contact" tab above, and I'll put you in touch. He'd love to hear from you again, as would I love to hear what you're doing these days.

  

  

  

  

  


Big thanks to my friend Tony M. (pictured above in a moment with the lovely Miss
  Kiger, that I'm sure he'll never forget), "President of the Susan Kiger Fan Club."

  2. WOW! Wished I had taken pictures during her H.O.T.S appearance here in KC! I only got her centerfold signed and it got misplaced during our last move (Along with my Morgana pics). I'm still looking!

  3. The first time I ever saw a picture of Susan Kiger, was when I was a sophmore in High School. A friend of mine walked up to me in study hall, and showed me the March 1977,
    edition, which had Susan as the covergirl. (the first of 3) She was wearing a wetsuit, with
    the ocean in back of her, and lots of cleavage showing. I thought, WOW! She is beautiful!
    Susan is among the most beautiful blonde playmates Playboy magazine has ever had.
    In 1996, I got the Playboy Playmate Book, that profiled the playmates through the decades. When I looked up Susan Kiger, the last Playboy had heard from her, she was
    living in the San Diego area. It seems strange that Playboy could not track her down,
    and find what she is doing. She certainly was in the spotlight for awhile there with TV
    and movie parts. Susan, along with other playmates, like, Pamela Anderson, Donna
    D'errico, Jenny McCarthy, and Shannon Tweed, proved a Playmate can make it in the
    entertainment business, and keep their clothes on. Then, as mentioned, Susan, dropped
    of the radar. If Hugh Hefner does not know where she is, no one does.
