These photos make me pause to reflect what Pontiac once was. I was shocked when Pontiac was discontinued as part of General Motors. Great close-ups of the emblem and rust!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Memories.... the first car I bought with my own money was a Pontiac Grand Le Mans. The thing was as big as a tuna boat! Thanks, again, Steven!
More good abstracts of these relics, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, kind sir!

Pontiac was always my favorite GM line

i can remember from a child hearing adults say women like Pontiacs and men like the Olds

such wisdom : - )

what can i say ? Dayton was a GM town and my dad worked there and he bought an Olds
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The first car I bought with my own money was a Pontiac Grand Le Mans - I was 17 years old, it was BRIGHT RED, inside & out!
You have some connections!! smile

Elizabeth these are cracking shots and I love this very much. Talk about presentation and great pictures. I love the rust and the symbol.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Astrid! I'm glad you've enjoyed these! I had such fun taking them!

The Pontiac marque has dimmed...

More wonderful stuff, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed.... since GM took them over.... :-( Thank you, Ray!
Oh my, Elizabeth. You got yourself an Ancient-of-Days!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I just love these old beasts! Thank you, Ginnie!

This looks to be beyond restoration Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Likely so, Chris. But never doubt a good body man! smile

You have got some good pics from your prowl around the junk yard, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It' such fun to come across these old beasts! I just love them, and feel a little sad when they've been tossed aside. So many have been kept up and / or refurbished and we see them trawling around quite often.

Great names of the American automobile industry that have come and gone. At least the name lives on in your image... just. Nature does a cracking job with its rusting.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed. I do love the Pontiac's. I think (but can't be sure), that in our dry climate, things rust so slowly that it just adds an extra layer of interest.

Symphony of rust in blue.

What an airplane!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Streamlined!
Not a brand to buy for its high quality finish smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I guess not at it's age!
Cool gas tank decoration.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I don't recall seeing that before!
The Earth is recovering it's elements by oxidation
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nicely stated, Martin! Though it's slow going in our dry climate!
hmmmm I love the rust texture against the chrome and faded car manufacture logo.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Will... and I really appreciate your visit. I love these old cars, and almost feel sad for them. Like you with your hunt for a more primitive camera... I enjoy finding these old beasts and looking for those that may have been loved for a time - until an accident, or a cost prohibitive repair...
Another two fine shots. I believe Pontiac have also gone out of business.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian!
GM took over Pontiac, dropped the label in 2009 and rolled out the last one in 2010. I always liked Pontiac's
Were these photos taken in a junkyard?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You'd be surprised to know, that this is an old "motel" where you can stay in your very own tee-pee! It's the strangest place!

You have found some fine restoration Products E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh indeed, Bill! Wanna come over and play?! smile
It looks like the face of an airplane that wants to take flight
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Philine said the same thing! smile
