Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

Super Deluxe — no Coke or fries.

1951 pontiac

I can tell from a mile away from the chrome strip (actually stainless steel), where the body meets the roof, that this is a General Motors’ Pontiac product. It took quite a bit more digging to find out that it’s more specifically a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain Super deLuxe Catalina Coupe. That’s a mouthful! The term “super deluxe” has a much different meaning today then it did then and is usually attached to a hamburger meal deal — which, ironically, is also a mouthful.
