Time for a summer drive. Pansy DeWitt carefully documented every new car in the family. This 1950 Pontiac (8 cylinder) included:
Apparently fuzzy dice had not yet been invented.
Now those are white-walls!

Great hood ornament and those look like real white walls...remember the "fake ones" that one could put over your black walls and the vaccum powered windshield wippers? Wonderful back seats,

The DeWitt's loved their cars.We have almost 50 years of photos like this, showing the "new car". This one may be down in the San Diego CA area. I don't think it is the Hood River Valley.

My grandfather, Al Peters, ALWAYS drove a Pontiac. I remember a Chieftan (?) in 1959-60, beige and white. Hydromatic was the transmission and was so fancy you only needed to say the one word.

Well, it's certainly not an Oregon plate!
Looks like the "Silver Streak" model --- see the streaks on the hood.
I like the split windshield.

I think my grandparents drove a Buick, but, it also had the front grill that looked like a big mouth.

A great hood ornament indeed! Chief Pontiac had a light bulb in it that came on with the headlights. A prize for any collector today!
