PostSubject: Vintage '59 Poncho pics   Mon Aug 31, 2009 1:02 am

Some of you may know I have a fondness for 1940s-70s transit buses and trolleys as well as cars. So in looking at vintage pics of them and there's Ponchos as well as any other cars I like near by, I save the pics.

On to the pics!






If you like these, I'll post pics of other ponchos and such as I find them...

Awesome pics! I love these old pictures!
A much simpler time to be alive.
I especially love the kleenex promo shot!
I have heard my 59 star chief 4dr referred to as having "a three body trunk"!
How many kleenex do you think they got in that 59 in the showroom?!

There's a place called Volmer body shop in San Antonio. I stopped in there to look at a '59 Galaxie one time and inside the office they had a to nof old pictures of San Antonio from 1959. One of the pictures showed a Pontiac dealership and one showed a Buick dealership. The guy in the office told me the owner had the pictures on a cd and would probably burn me a copy. I haven't been back to talk to him but I need to!

I didn't recognize Fireball, That's cool

You still wanting to head that way on Friday? Slight chance of rain, but that would be welcome after the 100* temps we've had.

I believe this is the same pic I have in a book. My mom said the dealer was in Camden, NJ. Our home town.

Sounds good.

Getting as bad as Mike (A.X.) and it's only my second day of vacation.

If yoy've got any hi-res pictures i have a A0 printer at work, that makes exelent posters Wink . The service guy told us that we have to print somthing with lots of color to keep the jets clean (it usually only prints tecnical drawings with very little ink).

I have already made posters of the old sales brochure from 'old car manual project', and they look great...

If we could obtain a high-res scan of the Dave Cole Pontiac dealership posted above, I'd love to obtain a few poster-size versions of that one!!
