Dad Had One...
Yep, Dad had one of these! This is painting based on one of the several photos I took at the Good Guys Car Show this last summer in DesMoines. I was drawn to paint this one because I remember my Dad had one of these Pontiac's. It was a faded green too but had a great deal of rust. We ended up getting rid of it because a passenger side door that would never stay shut. I remember hanging on for dear life to my little brother, who hung on to my mom as she would take the left turns. These were before the days of safety belts. The final straw was the time Mom took a left turn on 1st Ave Cedar Rapids, I forgot to hold on, and I thankfully rolled over to the curb missing the on-coming traffic. That was it and it was traded in for a newer Ford LTD.
Thanks for stopping by, and I welcome any comments you may have!
