Penny the 53 Pontiac

Pretty isn't it

This is Penny she is a 52000 mile 1953 Pontiac and she is well cared for as you can see.

I am sure someone will tell me that the engine is the wrong color but it sure looks good this way.

I just love the way the dashes looked in these old cars.

The cars back then had so much style.

I just got these for the car .I really like them but they are hard to keep clean.

Paint doesn't look to bad either.

First time I was asked to use the car for someones wedding may28,2011

Same wedding as in the picture before . I just put the wire caps on the car 6 months ago.

Lookin good for 58 years old .

This couple was very happy with her dads choice of vehicle for his daughters wedding. The newly weds stated this is way classier than a Limo


More Cars of the 1950s
More Pontiac Coverage

1501 car nuts gave this a thumbs-up. Do you? Thumbs-up

Tindian....I don't think my engine is the correct color either...Your 53 is Great though! What kind of money do you get for renting it out? By the way, if you ever need a new insert for your hood ornament, I cast them as well....I do Architectural Design for a living, but I started casting the inserts after I bought my 53. You can see all the different ones I do here if you like..

What a beautiful uncle made me fall in love with these as a kid when he showed me how the Indian on the hood lit up. I used to sit at night on our milkbox and I would see the hood emblem coming down the street and I knew it was him. He even hot rodded his Poncho. Your car is totally a time stamp for that era. Like you said the dash was a work of art and the car was a designer's dream. I think that married couple made the right choice. I still have pics of me and my 1st wife :-( in my Olds 442 looking out the back window at our wedding. Beautiful car........WHY IS IT CALLED PENNY?? Can you make "CENTS" out of that for us? :-) Sorry but if I didn't tell the joke someone else would. Love the new wire wheels and yes, like teeth with the old metal braces, they are a bear to keep clean.

Cleaned the car one day and when I finished I said "pretty as a new Penny", the name stuck PENNY THE PONTIAC.

...Just Luv your Pontiac my friend....Truly a great look-a...If you check out my 49 Chevy you will notice that the molding on the side of my car, that I designed and painted myself, also has a pontiac molding (from a different year than yours) to help separate the two different colors of my Chevy.!!!...

~ Thanks for your reply my friend even tho I'm a little late in my response, lol but while I was commenting on other stuff I noticed that I did not reply back on March 23, 2015 ~ I'll take your word for the fact that that molding/trim is from a '51 Pontiac ~ At this stage of my life I can't remember the detail anymore HaHaHa ~
