1926 Pontiac and Indian

I love the press release sticker on the back of this photo "A.R. Clancy, Pontiac's General Manager, is shown talking with an Indian". Gee, that was big of him! It has a 1926 date also typed on it, but we know that is not correct as that is definitely the hood of a 1937 Pontiac shown over the rear deck of the '26.

From the sappy looking hats (other than the Indian's headdress) from the '20s that the men are wearing, it appears this was some sort of "Old Days" event that brought this 1926 Pontiac out for the occasion.

Interesting is that this is shown as "1926 Pontiac No. 1 Built December 1925". We know that today Pontiac Motor Division has 1926 Pontiac No. 2 in their historical collection. With this No. 1 Pontiac still around in 1937, and doing VIP duty, you would almost guess it could still be around. Anybody know? And, please, don't say it went to the WWII metal drives. My father still talks about the 1930-something ALL aluminum body Lincoln limo that his rich buddy Cornie LaVeber's family gave to the scrap drive! The only way I would have condoned that is if I was guaranteed that a 500lb aluminum bomb would have been dropped directly on Hitler's head!

1931 Pontiac Assembly Plant

Notice that the title does not say "Assembly Line." I guess in 1931 not every manufacturer was convinced that Old Henry had the best idea of the moving assembly line.

At best these '31 Pontiacs were pushed from spot to spot for the next person or persons to do their job. Unless this was a lunch hour shot, it sure didn't look like the busiest place to work. Where are all the people?

Note the body shells along the top level in center and on the right. These seem to be on skids of some sort, but that would be because the wheels weren't on yet.

1934 Pontiac in Germany

OK, I'll bite. What could the story possibly be behind this photo from LIFE magazine?

Shot in 1940, we see a pretty sharp looking (except for damage) '34 4-door sedan Pontiac-- complete with the hard to find unbroken Indianhead radiator ornament.

Many cars were confiscated, along with lots of other loot, by the Nazis back during that dark period. It would be interesting to know what Der Fuher would had though about an automobile with such deep Indian heritage... they weren't blond and blue-eyed, you know.

1935 Pontiac Camper Setup

This was shown for sale and generated some pretty critical comments... downright nasty in some cases. Now, while I too like things that look more original, I do see the craftsmanship involved in this unique rig... a big one at that too! It leaves a little (perhaps a lot) to be desired in the front end treatment, especially when you consider how many cool donor front ends could have been used. You have to look very closely just to even see the original body section of the '35 Pontiac.

1938 Canadian Hot Rod

Talk about "understated"... WOW! This is one cool looking street rod. It takes some guts to do a custom sort of car in all white. And while it may not be as snappy looking a bright red, chrome actually stands out better on white than all other colors. Why...? Because chrome reflects black back,so if you have a dark car, the chrome actually tends to get lost. Can't you just see this car being used as a formal livery car, such as for a wedding where everything is "supposed" to be white?

1939 Pontiac Coupe and Cowboy

This here shot, partner, had to be of a brand spanking new '39 Pontiac coupe judging from the 1938 California license plate. Ya recon? Actually, from the car's new appearance, the genuine cowboy (right!), and the California plate, it is sure to have been a promotional shot with a rented cow puncher. Was a cowboy ever that clean? I doubt it.

1939 Pontiac- Kansas State Patrol

What a proud day this must have been to be selected for a photo shoot of the new '39 Pontiac patrol car and all its accessories... not to mention the dapper dress uniforms. But how times have changed.... "We have some flares... we have a broom..." Today's patrol cars are equipped like a command center, medical center, and repair shop. Even the cars today are extra heavy duty. Check that front bumper center push guard compared to the military, off-road looking ones on today's state patrol cars. Perhaps this is just a reflection of a more simple, peaceful time too.

1940 Pontiac- Definitely Ship-Shape

I have stumpled across another shot of a beautiful young model and a 1940 Pontiac. Check out previous post at: Click Here

It is pretty obvious that this is a "modern" shot just made to look old (WWII time). Regardless, it is a striking use of beauty... I mean the '40 Pontiac, of course.

I hope this young lass is keeping an eye on the swabbie sneaking up behind her with her mirror... most anyone who was in the service knows full well what's on his mind... I mean the '40 Pontiac, of course.

Gee, what's everybody else thinking?!

1941 Pontiac and Lowell Thomas

Back in "the old days" people gained their celebrity the old fashioned way... they worked for it. Not like today when some bimbo lets you film her doing inane things all day and becomes famous over night.

Here we see very famous author, radio announcer, and world traveler Lowell Thomas with his car of choice, a beautiful 1941 Pontiac 4-door sedan. And like all men of the world, his trusty dog (a big one) is at his side.

1941 Pontiac Taxi Interior

Building taxi cabs isn't the most glamorous part of any manufacturer's line, but these and other commercial vehicles certainly help pay the bills, though the margins are usually small. This 1941 Pontiac was showing off the interior luggage space in the cab layout.

We don't know if Pontiac actually modified/installed the taxi equipment (kinda doubt it), but it was sure unique. Aside from the meter, note that there is actually a turned-around seat added where the front passenger seat portion used to be.

Pontiac's "Good for 100,000 Miles" slogan must have been very attractive to the taxi industry.

1942 Pontiac Retail Store

This looks like a scene right out of a Boogie movie. Can you imagine a time when men wore these hats everywhere... even while at work in their uniform-type attire?

We're not quite sure just what a "Pontiac Retail Store" is, so will only guess a part of the factory (since it is identified as in Pontiac, Michigan) where perhaps cars and trucks (like the GMC hood we see) got parts added that were not available on the normal assembly line. And just what was this place like only one month after all civilian production ceased for the beginning of World War II (in February)?

1946 Pontiac Fastback- Looking Worn

Have you noticed how seldom you see an actual well-worn car today? Sometimes it's hard to tell today if a car is old because they change so little, but rarely do they just look pooped out like here.

Now we're not picking on this True Blue Pontiac, as it must have served- and continue to serve- someone well. And, that said, wouldn't you just love a cool '46 Streamliner 2-door today?

1947 Pontiac- Reflections

We often consider a hobbyist's car as a reflection of that owner's likes and perhaps even his or her's special era, be it youth, a favorite old relative, etc.

This 1947 Pontiac Streamliner certainly takes that idea to the max, but for totally different reasons. It is actually more of a rolling disco-ball ornament used in an MTV awards appearance by George Michael. Anyone see the program where it was used? Today the highly reflective Pontiac rests in a bar somewhere in England keeping whoever polishes the glasses even busier!

1948 Pontiac Convertible

The 1948 Pontiac is perhaps the most sought after of the 1942 through '48 era of Pontiacs. No surprise though as even with few changes over that span of years, they did get better. Most obvious being the multi-bar grille as it evolved to 1948.

What is particularly noticeable here is what we see in most advertising shots of that time... everyone is always dressed to the 9s. The gals are looking like they're ready for a evening on the town, even while strolling around outside. And no man is ever seen without a full suit and tie. Did nobody ever do casual?

The other thing seen here is pretty rare. Seldom do we see a light colored, especially what looks to be white, color car from that era. They were almost always dark paint, with black and Parma Wine red being the most popular.

1950 Pontiac Convertible- Cruising Cuba

We've all hear of the "hoard" of American Iron presumably sitting in politically land-locked Cuba since the early '60s. This appears to be one of the better looking, complete, and authentic examples. Truth be told, theses cars that have keep Americans drooling for the possibility of tapping into are both wrecks and messes of mesh-mashed parts. Us Pontiac loves can rejoice that this nice looking Pontiac drop top has been preserved as well as it has. Note that many of the cars in Cuba actually serve as taxi serve vehicles.

1950 Pontiac Painting

We're gonna go out on a limb and call this a "painting" though it may not be. It does, however, remind us of oil painting where gobs of paint are thrown down and suddenly something appears, or water colors when swatches of watered down paint magically create a scene. This is most likely computer generated, but of the same sort of style. It is amazing how few lines it actually takes to make an image. This is probably the simplest '50 Pontiac ever painted... and darn nice looking!

1954 Goldfinger Pontiac

When you see movie effects like in "Avatar," it is amost laughable when you see a staged "accident scene" like this. Could anything look more phoney?

Surprisingly, this was from a scene in the 1964 James Bond "Goldfinger." These flicks back then were considered state-of-the-art in effects and realism. This was shot somewhere near Paducah, Kentucky. Not being a big James Bond fan, I wonder if it had anything to do with the nuclear power plant located there.

On the plus side of their lack of realism, it appears that the 1954 Pontiac Chieftain two-door hardtop and the 1955 Oldsmobile suffered no real damages. Well perhaps the Olds needed some paint work on its right side. So, unlike today when those Holly-weird dopes think nothing of destroying great collector cars "in the name of art," at least these two neat old cars appear to have lived another day.

"READY. SET. ACTION. Pop up hood. Fling open door. Lay out of door pretending to be injured. CUT!" Perfect. Oscar material!

1954 Pontiac Star Chief and Young Love

Remember cuddling up with your sweetheart on the fender of your car? Well, I don't either, but it appears it might have been the thing to do back in the '50s. Which is the obvious time period for this shot. This big '54 Star Chief- the first year for the stretched Pontiac model- was a pretty snazzy ride for a young man back then. Perhaps not the fastest thing off the line, but no slouch either with that big churning straight-8. And, a serious luxury ride with an equally serious sport factor- hardtop, fender skirts, and tons of Pontiac chrome.

1955 Pontiac Strato Star Show Car

The mid-'50s were awash with futuristic looking show cars. GM was a top contender with its traveling Motorama Show, and Pontiac was participating in the future too with quite a number of show-stopping vehicles. This 1955 Strato Star was one of them.

What is sort of unusual is that this 1955 "futuristic" car had quite a few features that weren't far out, but actually in current production. Check the vents above the headlights and a grille/bumper that looks very 1956. How about the hood Silver Streaks? Guess before Bunkie Knudson came around they were still considered part of the future.

1956 Pontiac 4 X 4

We've shown a pretty good assortment of Pontiacs that have taken the 4 X 4 road here, but this is the first 1956 Poncho. While we've never been big fans of this sort of conversions, usually because the "builder" gets a little carried away in the lift department, we have to admit a certain fondness for this buggy. It may be because someone saved an otherwise seldom restored (as in sink money into it) little 4-door sedan to work with. Or because it just plain looks right. Its proportions seem correct and it's not sticking up in the clouds. So, from us... cool ride!

1959 Pontiac in the Snow

Is this what your next restoration project is looking like? We hope not. It would be far better to be indoors lovingly covered in anticipation of another great old Pontiac rolling down the road again. But if there is no choice, we would rather see it slumbering under a blanket of snow than in a wrecking yard somewhere. Let's hope it is not sinking into the ground too... and that all the windows are rolled up nice and tight!

1960-62 Pontiac Police Cars

It looks like some police department (we believe somewhere in California) knew what it took to catch the bad guys. One would assume that it was in 1962 judging by the quantity of those. But they were obviously no strangers to Pontiac performance as seen with a 1961 and even an unmarked 1960 Pontiac. Note the '60 is a 2-door. Probably a detective car or some big shot's wheels. The Harley on one end is probably parking patrol, and the '62 Dodge on the other end the booby prize for the guy who didn't make his ticket quote for the week. Back many years ago when we used to find ex-police cars on car lots, they were usually very heavy duty, and most often 3-speeds. How cool would it be to have had one of them? But we were always afraid if the abuse and high miles they had.

1962 Tempest

You have got to admit, this is one sexy looking early Tempest. It was sent in by one of our members who owns a '62 Tempest also, although much more in the stock family than this. It was found for sale on Craig's List for $12,500.

It is on a Model A frame and has a 383 Chrysler engine with automatic transmission. Obviously, there is little else remaining that is of Pontiac origin either.

Would this be cool, or what, with a Pontiac powerplant and perhaps Pontiac wheels and other PMD goodies?! How about an early Pontiac grille and radiator shell?

1963 Catalina Wagon- Six Gun Territory

So you'd like to cruise around in a sharp 1963 Catalina Station Wagon, huh? Better check with Sheriff Frank Morgan the Sheriff of Cochise first. This one's reserved for him. This is actor John Bromfield who stared in the "Sheriff of Cochise," a TV western that began in 1956. The setting was most likely the Six Flags Territory that opened in 1963 in Silver Springs, Florida. Like so many tourist attractions, this western themed park closed in 1984; very likely one of the many Disney causalities.

1963 Fleur de Lis- 1963 Chicago Auto Show

Long gone were the wild concept cars from the '50s, only to be replaced by what appeared to be actual factory cars with gimmicks and do-dads, often giving nothing more than a slightly customized car might carry. Here we see the Tempest most likely trying to appeal to the feminine audience (remember the Chrysler La femme in 1955?). The Chicago Auto Show has always been a hot spot for new car announcements, continuing on today in the huge McCormick Place auditorium.

1963 Pontiac Parisienne

So many like to complain about that huge chunk of front fender chrome on the '63 Pontiacs... sort of a love it or hate it item. But few have the "PARISIENNE" label to flash around. Obviously a Canadian brother, but to us below the border, more of a neat customized Pontiac. As we always say, if you want a cool Pontiac like nobody else has, shop for a Canadian model. Sorry about that Chevrolet drive train, but cool nonetheless

1964 Pontiac- Kentucky Favorite Racer

Not every racer will achieve super star status... unless, of course, you ask the locals at the tracks they loved to run. Here is one such person, Andy Hampton running a '64 Pontiac at the Louisville, Kentucky fairgrounds. Even with bigger track wins under his belt, this Kentucky local loved the smaller, even dirt, tracks. These were the days of true "cowboys" on the race track. And they were also the days many of us remember well when the cars actually looked like the cars at the local dealership.

1964 Vandalized GTO

"Oh, my!" Let's hope this wasn't someones pride and joy parked in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well, actually, regardless of how this once proud GTO ended up in this condition, there was definitely something that was wrong.

We don't know if this was a poor victim of some inner city riot scene that was happening in those mid-60s or just a typical example of a stolen car, stripped and damaged to the point of just urban blight. Sadly, it was never to be loved again if and when it got hauled away.

1965 Custon Pontiac Catalina

Check out this "creation" against the yellow '65 custom here too. Sorta look the same, huh? Well, we think so too. Our guess would be that this horrible '60s to '70s scalloping paint job was the first, followed by a more "subdued" yellow.

This thing looks like it was lifted right off the cover of an AMT 1:24 model car box... you know the kits that had no class, but looked cool to a 13 year old?!?

Either paint scheme... this thing gets a great big Yuck from us!

1965 Pontiac Rat Fink

Another product from the furtule (though twisted) mind of the great Ed "Big Daddy" Roth... forever known for "Rat Fink" the monster gear head.

I hadn't seen this '65 Pontiac before, but am glad he chose a full-size Poncho. They seem to get overlooked in the radical department for GTOs and Trans Ams.

We don't know how wealthy the late, great Big Daddy got, but imagine how fabulously wealthy he could have been if he had received $1.00 from each boy who got in trouble at school aping his style with paper and pen when they were supposed to be studying! Long live the Rat Fink!

1965 Pontiac- 10 Millionth Pontiac

Do the math... to reach this number of Pontiacs built in 39 years (minus 4 for the war years), it took (on average) nearly 300,000 cars per year. We know the earlier years didn't make that kind of number, so the later years did even more. Pontiac at one time was certainly a force to contend with. In 1965 Pontiac was absolutely on the top of their game. Here Pete Estes is shown driving this memorable Pontiac off the line. One wonders if it got any further special treatment, or just loaded on the truck with the others. You think VINs ever kept on these milestone cars?

1966 Beaumont Convertible- in the Weeds

From the looks of the building, and the generally unkept area, we have to surmise that this ain't the richest part of town. But obviously the owner of this Canadian Pontiac- the Beaumont- doesn't (or at this stage didn't) know that he had a pretty rare and valuable car. It is most likely one of those sad stories of the dope who won't sell because he is always "going to restore it one day." Well, that "one day" has come and gone. Sadly this rare convertible will probably never see the road again. If you have something that you know darn well you will never get around to... let it go before it becomes like this... PLEEEEZE!

You better say that, or we're gonna have to talk to someone about you.

Well, as luck would have it, this is in fact a nice bright red 1966 GTO. And as luck would have it too, this is a sharp babe all stretched out across it. Guess it's our lucky day!

1966 GTO Forever Stamp

When the U.S government (we know the postal service is "technically not government, but just try to separate the two) decides to do something special with commemorative stamps, they seldom do anything that excited the car world, much less the Pontiac part of that world. But they hit a home run with a 1966 GTO on a "Forever" stamp. Nobody can deny the '66 GTO to forever be one of the favorite Pontiacs ever... and "forever."

In the interest of promoting safe driving, it seems strange for all the smoking tires in the back. But then again, it's a GTO, what ya gonna expect?!?

If you spend any time with your grand kids, you'll recognize these guys from the Cartoon Network- "Regular Show." It is an animated television series that revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby- —both employed as groundskeepers at a local park. Their regular attempts to slack off usually lead to surreal, extreme, and often supernatural misadventures. So, with that in mind, you know a hot '67 GTO is going to supply a good deal of adventure... we hope not too much MIS-adventure.

I don't know where this foreign country is that this '68 Firebird was photographed in, but I think I want to go there. As a matter of fact this "almost" innocent looking young lovely seems to be calling me to come join her... really, I think she is!

There are a number of foreign countries where U.S. cars are not that uncommon of a sight. England and the Netherlander countries are really hot to trot for American iron. And an early Firebird will have no problem negotiating the narrow old world streets. Perhaps gas prices, but not the streets!

Among all the cool (well wet and muddy) shots were these four Catholic nuns... in with all the hippies! The last one, the cute one (can you call a nun cute?) flashed this Peace Sign with her fingers just as she was walking past a 1968 Pontiac 4-door sedan.

1969 Catalina- Flipped Over

This is perhaps the worst thing any trailer hauler wants to happen, and considering the speeds some of these rigs zip by you on the interstate, it's a wonder it doesn't happen more often. Consider the forces involved here to flip a big '69 Catalina onto its roof, plus the trailer on its side.

But what has me puzzled is the cavalier attitude this couple seems to have about the whole thing. They're posed as if to say "Hey, look what we did." Heck, she's even smiling. Perhaps they're thinking it could have been worse... not for the poor Catalina though.

1970 Firebird- Herb Adams Racing

It seems whenever anyone asks for one person most responsible for the promotion of the Firebird and Trans Am they yell Burt Reynolds. Well, it may be true that he romanticized them on the silver screen, but another man was the real "father" behind them. That was Herb Adams. There is much written of his influence on the F-body cars in the hobby books, but they probably don't come anywhere near the grit that it took to do what he did. As we see here, Adams wasn't just a pencil pushing engineer... he walked the walk too!

1970 Grand Prix- Vandalized or just Waiting

This is so wrong in so many ways. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the '69-'70 GPs are fact becoming rare to find. And with the unique place they occupy in the design history of this great car, there should never be one allowed to waste away... not one in saveable condition, that is.

This one looks to have already "donated" its disc brakes to (probably) a GTO, and have received a new, better front clip. But then what happened? Was it vandalized, hence the smashed windshield, or did the rust under the glass discourage some restorer? Whatever the case, we hope it is saved from a deteriorating fate like so many fine, restoreable cars over the years.

1970 GTO Judge Movie Car

I have heard that there is a big market for old or special interest cars for movies, advertising photo shoots, etc. But most often you only hear about the hobbyist who loans his or her car for few dollars, and only the excitement.

Here we see, with a nice 1970 GTO Judge, just how much this can really cost. Here are the stats and the price. Guess it's not going to be in any chase scenes any time soon though.

Day rate is: $550.00
Year: 1970
Type: Pontiac GTO Judge
Color: White with black vinyl top and spoiler
Engine: 400 Ram Air III, 365 hp

This Pontiac GTO Judge movie picture car is painted in polar white color with a black spoiler and vinyl top. It has a deluxe black interior, 4-speed transmission and it is in show condition. Available for films and movie sets, backdrops, model shoots, magazines, displays, promotions, shows, and general photography. It is not available for stunts, driving, or situations - scenes that involve unnecessary movement of the vehicle, or anything that Film My Ride Picture Cars may deem as hazardous to the vehicle.

This vehicle participated in scenes from the 2004 filming of USA Networks "The Last Ride" Starring Dennis Hopper, Chris Carmack, Nadine Velazquez, Fred Ward, and Will Patton. Produced by Rob Cohen, Director of the FAST AND THE FURIOUS and XXX and sponsored by Pontiac.

It's easy to understand why this beautiful '70 GTO Judge would put a smile on anyone's face. Perhaps the girls it attracts as well. This young lovely sure seems impressed with the fact that she's up close and personal with an actual Judge as she does a Vana White with her hands.

1970 Pontiac Ambulance

There's three things I don't want to know when an ambulance is called if I'm having "The Big One!"

1) that the ambulance is parked behind what looks like a warehouse,
2) that the hood is sitting a-jar as if the jumper cables were just called for, and
3) that there's tumble weeds stuck underneath it!

Well, the good news is.... at least it's a Pontiac!

Let's hope this isn't some little Utah hilltop community's only ambulance, and rather the next project for some Pontiac professional vehicle hobby buff.

1976 Grand Prix & Sunbird World Travelers

The country was a-flutter with bicentennial fever-- and Pontiac was right in there too.

Here we see the 1976 Grand Prix and Sunbird enroute in what appears to be somewhere in the middle east... no real safe place to be then, as now.

These two mighty Pontiacs performed great, and earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records traveling lots of miles in less than favorable conditions... but, hey, they're Pontiacs!

1977 Trans Am Type-K

Whenever there is a hot seller, there is temptation to see what can be done with it to broaden its appeal. Most recent was the UTE (pickup) that PMD was toying with from the G8. Cool, but too late to happen, and certainly too late to even attempt to save PMD.

But many years earlier an equally goofy idea came about and if not for high production cost estimates, might actually have happened. We see two possible things happening if they had built this T/A K wagon. 1) People flocking to it with a great big "Thank You PMD for thinking about the family who wanted a sports car." Or 2) People flocking AWAY from PMD for ruining the prestige of their only true sports and performance car. Perhaps next would have been wood paneling on the sides!

We have articles about this car in our On-Line Magazine- check them out.

1977 Universal Pictures Smokey Trans Am

Probably the most famous Pontiac of all times was this Trans Am (and all others in sequels). And the most imitated too, though that isn't too difficult since these in the films were pretty much bone stock. The thing rather obvious here is the age difference between Bert Reynolds ("The Bandit") and his girl, Sally Fields. In this shot of Sally it's a wonder the law wasn't after old Burt for transporting a minor across state lines... boy, does she look young there!

1978 Pontiacs- Chicago Auto Show

What a wide view of Pontiac's offerings for 1978. But do you notice the same thing here as in showrooms? Yup, stick the sporty, performance model- in this case a Trans Am- right smack dab in the middle of everything. But there was a lot more to like about the Pontiacs there than just the T/A. Certainly the downsized Grand Prix models displayed caused some excitement too. And if you were still longing for yesteryear when Pontiacs were big and luxurious, that was there too. So, even though the high performance era was well in the rear view mirror by 1978, Pontiac still had a lot to offer for everyone.

1980 Pontiac Grand Camino

For all who wonder if PMD ever gave serious consideration to a Rancho/El Camino style vehicle, check this out. Here we our Pontiac friend, the late John Sawruk PMD engineer and historian, with just such a vehicle. It is an obvious Grand Am front end graft to a Chevrolet El Camino, and definitely cool looking.

But this wasn't Pontiac's first trip to this watering hole as you can see in the following article in our PontiacRegistry.com On-Line Magazine about the 1959 Pontiac "El Catalina" prototype: Click Here

1980s Firebird-Studebaker

Call it a "Fire-Baker" or a "Stude-Bird" but whatever you choose, it is darn cool looking. Here it is strutting its pointed nose at the 12th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise.

This was no small job blending these two so different cars together. Note that even the rear panels have been Studebakered.

1983 Natalie the Firebird Girl

While this newest generation Firebird wasn't warming up the buying public perhaps as much as previous models, Natalie "the Firebird Girl" was sure getting the red-blooded young guys hot and bothered. What a cutie! Certainly PMD chose her wisely with her "girl next door" charm as not to be too sexist (like we would mind, right?!) with some buxom babe hanging all over the car (and perhaps hanging out too).

While we don't know if she upped the Firebird sales much, we bet she sure upped the sale of black leather outfits!

1998

What red-blooded American male since WWII hasn't flipped over photos of the Curtis P-40 painted in the Gen. Chennault "Flying Tigers" theme? This Trans Am that was featured in a 2008 High Performance Pontiac article tells of someone taking this theme one step further as a fire breathing machine.

Read the archived HPP article at:

Interestingly, the HPP author gives a good history lesson of the Flying Tigers and their heroic efforts just before WWII. Read it and then study up on this part of America's history that many don't even know about. It is quite a story.

3rd Generation Firebird- Shark Bite & Side Pipes

You know, it could be Shark Week, Shark Month, or even Shark Year, and this thing would still just plain suck. What are some people thinking? I can see someone getting drunk and then kicking in their car panels, and spray bombing all over the car, but this sort of thing actually takes planning. Someone actually thought this out... not necessarily through, but out. Now they should throw it out.

4X4 Trans Am

It's not like we haven't seen a jacked up 4x4 T/A before, so why are we so fascinated when we see another one? I wish we could say in a good way too, but we can't. The only way we can accept this sort of abomination is if it involved two cars (or a truck) that might otherwise have gone to the crusher, had it not been for the combination of the two. They are pretty much the modern day version of the farmer many years ago who cut the back off the retired family car to make a farm truck. We wonder further why this fellow (or gal) stuck a Chebby emblem on the front. But we're kinda glad he isn't advertising that it is (or was) a Pontiac. Looks like it can pull though!

Cammer Hot Rod

While most early hot rods chose the venerable small block Chevy engines, this group appears to have chosen a more unique approach, choosing a Pontiac OHC-6 power plant. Surely it has to be post-1967. But probably not by much, judging from the young men's clothing and hair styles. By all signs, it looks like a number of these guys are wearing Boy Scout uniforms. Could this have been a "pack" project? If so, it makes one wish they had stayed in scouting longer. Cooking over a fire, bugs, and tents... can do without. But building a hot rod... count me in!

Firehawk Girl- SMOKIN'!

We're hoping this is a "Daisy Duke" sort of fashion statement, because if this poor lass has spent her last dime to own this supercar Firehawk, leaving her only tattered cloths to wear (not that we're complaining), that might be a shame... NOT! Seriously, the license plate says it all... "SMOKIN." And while it is obviously referring to the car, certainly temperatures rise when checking out its lovely companion.

Pontiac Utes- Old & New

With Pontiac being big in Australia, it is no surprise that Pontiac would have been made into Utes too. The Ute is pretty much an Australian phenomenon ("Utility" vehicle). They weren't just backyard-built, but actually factory manufactured too. I guess they met the needs of the rugged Outback while also being comfortable for the long distances between civilization.

Here we see a cool looking '41 Pontiac Ute. And, just for grins, how about the shot of the Pontiac that wasn't to be-- the G8 ST ("Sport Truck"). From all indications Holden in Australia is building it even though Pontiac isn't.

Any chance this new Ute was the Pontiac-saver... sure, just like they still make El Caminos and Rancharos! What was Pontiac thinking?!

Stutz Blackhawk- Can you find the Pontiac?

Whether you want a "Pontiac" that will stand out from the crowd, or just want to drive the judges nutz finding a class for you at your next Pontiac car show, then this 1975 Stutz Blackhawk is for you.

Can you find the Pontiac Grand Prix that this car was built on? Obviously little of the original donor car remains.

The Stutz Blackhawk was the product of a company started in 1968 who then hired automotive designer Virgil Exner, of Chrysler fame, to come up with a design of what the Stutz automobile (from the '20s) would look like if it was still around. Somehow he came up with this.

Many loved it for what it did best... attract attention. It went over big in Hollywierd and among other entertainers. Love it or hate it, there are some neat things going on with it, and certainly no expense was spared making a unique car. It is figured that approximately 600 were built by Ghia in Italy between 1971 and 1987.

I saw one accounting of the car that described it as "a mutant Olds Cutlass customized by Liberace." Obviously he was not a big fan. Occasionally these cars can be scooped up for very low prices, and sometimes in rather well-worn condition. Their lack of "acceptance" helps keep the prices low.

Trans Am and Fighter Jet Christmas Card

Somebody had a pretty creative way to wish everyone a Trans Am Merry Christmas. But Santa better steer clear of this speedy duo if he wants to reach everyone in one piece. And from the looks of the fighter jet's tail, it had broken the sound barrier. We hope Santa didn't have any breakable items in his sleigh.
