Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

1950 Pontiac Streamliner, Gas 24¢

At first I thought this was a Chevy, but my knowledge of Chevy styling from that era begged me to dig deeper. Something was off. It’s actually a Pontiac, and as near as I can tell it’s a 1950 model. The gentlemen in this photo aren’t captioned so we are left to wonder who they are and in what town this moment was captured. Looks like they might have just had a business lunch and found time to light one up and pose before heading out. Just thinking, at those pump prices, you could top off an empty tank for $4 (16 gallons x .25 each).

Found this photo in a great little junque shoppe in Christmas Michigan. Romaine, the woman who runs the place is a stitch. If you’re ever in Christmas you need to stop in and tell her you read about her on the internet. And look around her store a while, lots of neat things to see and buy.

    The “hood ornament” tells that it is Pontiac.
