you're welcome. I've been going through old car mags looking for bonneville ads and articles, and I just couldn't resist saving these. The cars that Pontiac was making really were exciting, and I think the ads did a great job of conveying that excitement.

I didn't think there would be any interest here, until I saw your sig on some other topic, then I thought there might be some interest here after all, so it'* actually because of you that I posted these

I love white with white wheels as well. I wish GM would go back to the old days where the cars had some character. Like in the late '80s, where everything went to a turbo charged version (including the Grand Ams). The whole de-"side cladding" thing.....I have nothing against it for Buick or Olds or anything, but Pontiac.....leave them to be the aggressive looking, luxury with attitude driving excitement machines they're meant to be.
