For my brother, Ed

Allow me to step out of character for a moment and take a waddle down memory lane. One of my oldest memories is of a pea-green 50's vintage Pontiac my oldest brother owned when I was just knee-high to a Siberian Dwarf Hamster. (Come to think of it, where are their knees? Oh, never mind.) A week or so ago, as some of you know, DG and I were out to a classic car show and there we encountered a Pontiac very much like my brother's - except a lighter shade of green. So, for fun, here are the pix. Enjoy Ed! (By the way, the Indian's head on the hood ornament lit up.)

  1. Now one of the things that makes this car all that much better than say aaaaa Ford is the fact that it is 12 Volt instead of the standard 6 volt system. GM went to 12 volt systems way before everyone else.

    What does all of this mean???

    Better starters, better lights- first year of 1157 and 1156 bulbs in the tail lights and more.

    Triva- the power windows on a car like this would have been powered by Hydrolic cyclinders.

  3. I love old cars! Where we used to live there was a huge building at the Fair just for classic cars. LOVED walking through there.

  5. I am troubled by the indian head, and curious as to why it was not superimposed with a hamster head ;)
