1957 Canadian Pontiac

from Alex Emond:
"This Pontiac was at the Tim Horton's in Strathmore, Alberta. Smoke haze was thick that day . I am not sure of the exact model . I suspect that all the chrome bits have been redone because they were suspiciously flawless. Not as common as the Chevy's of that year . Cheers , Alex "

AL: Let's call it a Laurentian. Or a Strato Chief. I think that Canadian Pontiacs of that era were Chevys is all but sheet metal. Like this '62 Pontiac Laurentian. Or this '59 Strato Chief. How about this 1959 Pontiac Laurentian Safari wagon?
