1929 Pontiac

Owned by Martin and Lynn Whitley.

The Pontiac cars were created by GM to fill a long-standing price gap between Chevrolet and Oldsmobile divisions in order to serve as a platform to share vehicle components in an effort to improve volume efficiency. But what it did create was a revolutionary transformation in the automobile industry.

The Pontiac took the market by storm and it was warmly welcomed by customers and car enthusiasts who were looking for something new. Soon the demand outpaced production and new production units were built only for the Pontiac series of cars!

In 1929 Pontiac introduced the Series 6-29 Big Six, which was originally a Vauxhall, the British subsidiary GM had acquired. The series features several auto-innovations worthy of its time , such as:

Pontiac’s first convertible (optional)

Engine displacement was 200.4 c.i., and hp increased significantly with respect to the previous version by 25 percent to 57 at 3000 rpm

Exterior color became popular, and Pontiac began offering an array of standard paint colors for every model

It is mention worthy that the Pontiac built its 500,000th car in 1929. However, in 1929 the stock market crashed, leading to the first decrease in demand for the 1929 Pontiac and its subsequent production losses due to the depression.

I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
