PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 2 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE (Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team. Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.
1957 Pontiac Star Chief 4 door hardtop
I really like this car..the two tone color scheme is apparent with the outside and inside colors...if only cars today had such matching color schemes! The rocket motif is apparent on the side and back end of the car. Note the tremendous detail...twin rocket ships on the front fenders, chrome bows in the interior roof line...very stylish!
