1964 Pontiac Laurentian Safari Station Wagon

from our correspondent in the Canadian Rockies, Alex Emond:
"PB, you should be wearing a G.P.S. collar, like biologists put on albatross, so we can just look at a map and see where you are and where you have been. 
"Yesterday morning I saw this outrageous hipster hearse out in the "Industrial Compound" here in Banff. Very, very cool.  Kind of funny that Banff, which has virtually no industries besides T-shirt silkscreening, drycleaning and a bottle depot, has an Industrial Compound. Best views in town!"--AE

(And AL posted 1964 Pontiac wagon, a Parisienne, a couple years back.. looking for a makeover.)
