How about posting all your '59 pictures. Ad any full size Pontiacs if you like.

I'll start with this one I found on H.A.M.B. board.



Love the bird beak in the front end.

I like it other than the separated headlights. That is what ruined the '59 Olds in my opinion. '59 Olds are BEAUTIFUL cars until you see those god damn separated head lights.

Looks like a '60 buick grill??? The bumper looks too bulky. For a custom like that it might look better with a smaller bumper or if they had it scaled to the right size it might look ok.

You know, maybe a '59 Pontiac wouldn't look so bad with a flat hood instead of the huge V. Sure would look a lot cleaner. That's why I love '59 buicks. I don't think there is a damn thing you could change to make it look any better than how it left the factory

Thats a sick Pontiac ha. Personally, i love all of the '59 GM cars as is from the factory. I would kill for a 59 Olds i love those. I found one for sale over in eastern washington a couple weeks ago it was awesome.. to bad i didn't have $9000 just layin around. I almost wonder after looking at that picture for a minute if that grill on the green Pontiac is off of a 59 Olds....

I was thinking 1960 Mercury. Even kept the headlights.

Now I see why they built the bird beak nose. Dat dare mech grille jus ain't wides anough for dat dare big ol'Poontiac. hehehe. I think it is just right . I do like the regular headlights together but it does really widen the look even more. I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eatin' crackers. Mark Ln

Stay focused and don't get discouraged. I remember for a while there was like a whole year that I didn't touch my car. Don't do that

Where exactly are you in Washington? I know a kid in Kent who knows old cars pretty well. Maybe he could help you out finding a roof

If I have time I'll check tomorrow, If not, for sure on Wednesday. I wish they would just let me drop it off at one of their terminals. It would save us both the hassle and time
