Restoring my 57 Pontiac.

My 57 Pontiac Pathfinder Deluxe sedan is a Canadian issue Pontic, meaning it is based on a Chevrolet and not an American Pontiac. I purchased the car in May 1996 in Omeme, Ontario, Canada. The car was built in July 1957 in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada by GM Canada and was sold in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada by a dealer named AMOS in that town. The car ended up coming back to Ontario in 1979 to its birth place of Ontario. My dad Anthony (1927-1993) bought the same car in 1959 and kept it until 1970, I was born in 1958 so I grew up with the car and have fond memories of it. I rebuilt everything on my 57 before I decided to do the body and paint. I collected many 57 accessories for the car because I am accessory crazy. The car was very solid being an Alberta car and that minimized the body work. I drive the car on average 4,000 miles to shows and cruises every year. This car has been a real joy since 1996 and I hope to continue the time travel. Cheers.

I just feel the need to clarify, that this 57 is not the very same car my mom and dad had. It is an exact copy of our family's 57 except for the many accessories I have added. Cheers.
