Summer Cars: the 1963 Pontiac Bonneville


This car lives in Blue Hill. A one-family car for 51 years. Restored 25 years ago. Runs great.
I've always has a thing for Pontiacs. Wrote an essay called Love Cars exploring why. And 1956-64 Pontiacs especially. Have a look at some of these Poncho posts on Autoliterate:
