The identical twin to that 4 door hardtop Star Chief is in the little town where I work. Totally original car, really nice shape. I just saw him driving it yesterday, hadn't seen it out this year yet. Gorgeous car.

Back in the days when a guy could identify every car on the road , before the asian invasion. Now you can't tell the american cars from the imports.

 Story goes when Bunkie Knudson saw those he ordered them removed. He had just been named head of Pontiac and was determined to bring a younger fresher performance attitude to Pontiac. The silver streaks were a Pontiac trademark up until then. As the photo shows the 57 had them planned for production but they were a very last minute deletion.

 Interesting, trying to figure out where the Ford in the middle lane came from...

 LOL... I was wondering that myself... what's he doing??

However it looks like there are cops directing traffic for some reason, so maybe he was waved there?

The photo above is a little deceiving... it was a rotary built in the fifties (now it's a roundabout - same infrastructure with slightly realigned lanes, and different rules).  Not to say it wasn't problematic but it's not an intersection per se.
