'53 Chief Pontiac
3 : 2 Aspect Ratio
Pontiac, the car and the town it was made in, were named after a famous chief
of the Odawa (Ottawa) nation in the Niagara region during the 1700s.
The brand was introduced by GM in the late 20's and was a solid performer in the post war years.
When researching these automobiles, I often stumble upon an interesting connection or a prominent player.
John Delorean was the Pontiac Chief Engineer in the early 60's when the GTO made the scene.
Dad bought one for Mom and it was the first and perhaps only Pontiac product he ever bought,
but it was sure fun while it lasted.
