Now we are on the last day of the veteran car week at my blog. But I still have some more old beauties I want to show you, so I decided to continue with cars a couple of days. Today’s upload is another Pontiac, we opened the week with a Star Chief from 1957 and we close it with a Bonneville from 1958. Pontiac is a automobile brand started by General Motors in 1926 and was terminated, due to the effects of the company’s financial problems, in 2009. The name Pontiac comes from the Indian chief of the Ottawa tribe who is famous for his role in Pontiac’s Rebellion against the British Army in 1763 to 1766. The Bonneville model was produced from 1957 to 2005 and got its name from the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, a site auto racing and most of the world’s land speed record runs. The Bonneville was introduced to the market in 1957 with a cabriolet. In 1958 they added a coupe, and it paced the Indianapolis 500 that year. This turquoise beauty from 1958 made a trip to Mariefred, on the Day of Steam 2011, where I spotted it and captured on picture.
Below you can see three HDR-pictures of the 1958 Pontiac Bonneville, one of the exterior and two from the interior. There is a fourth HDR-picture of the exterior viewed from behind, you can see this picture in my collection at smugmug or flickr!
