If the Pontiac Motor Division had built “Excitement” in 1937, this would have likely been it. Sleek car, draped by a fashionable woman (above). Let’s fast forward some 46 years, to 1983, and the rare “Pontiac Excitement” NASCAR calendar (left) that Natalie Carroll (aka: Firebird Girl) made famous. Sleek car, draped by a woman. A LOT can change in 45 years. No? Look, no more running boards — can’t find a comfortable place to sit!

The featured photo is of a 1937 Pontiac Straight Eight Four Door if you were still curious.
