Hi everyone, I have just joined the group, I am from Australia, I have just bought a one family owned 1950 Pontiac Silver Streak, it's a "GMH" General Motors Holden built body, the chassis and all the running gear imported from the USA. this car is my third Pontiac 167 off the line out of 341 built in Australia in 1950. The car has been worked on over the years and maintained to a tee.. just love the car.. You can see it on youtube .. type in .. Driving in Paynesville. My home town, other pictures in the gallery.. This forum site is very good, so much help when I need contacts for part. , forgot to mention the mats ... amazing

  5. Hi everyone, I am a new member and I thought I would share pictures of the "1950 Pontiac Silver streak" I have just bought home, one family owner since new. (its my third Pontiac) I have all the original paper work from the dealer including the receipts and hand book workshop book, so happy to get this car..., I am looking for a company that sells decals , I need the decals for the engine bay for a start, the air cleaner sign is a tad faded, I live in country Victoria in Australia, hope someone can help find what I am looking for, I have just fitted the wheel trims and the whitewalls, waiting on custom made venetian for the rear window... that will do it fro now, a visor and spats for the the rear wheels would be good too Cheers Russ
  6. The secret is in the saw that cut the 34 degree angle on the supports on the venetian.. It pays to have friends with good power tools.. He will be rewarded in red wine. Lots of it LOL
  7. Updated photos today at the boat ramp

  9. Welcome Christophe, The world over... We love our old cars don't we, greeting from Victoria .. Australia
  10. Just finished the venetian blind for the 1950 Pontiac, Looking around, I found the cost of a pro built one was around $300.00, so I decided to make one .. A visit to the local junk shop and a find, A cedar house venetian blind for $15.00. used the slats and made the supports.. bit of time and paint.. and all done for less than $40.00. Very happy with result ...

  16. Forgot to mention the "Daisy" thing on the front of the car, It refers to my dear Dads "A Model ford", long story .. very sentimental thing to do with vintage drivers club.
  17. Enough of Victoria bashing, we keep all the other states in Australia alive with our dribbling drifter caravan money... LOL .. BUT the fog lights will never be used, It's a Summer ,Autumn cruiser.... very happy with this car... Motor is so smooth and quiet... you can hear the clock ticking...? I got some gal steel from "Bunnings" and made the brackets so to fit behind the bumper bolts. I did not want to drill holes in the body. Yesterday it was at the Bruthen pub Rockabilly Rumble.. Its a annual thing some great rods there.. Cheers Maok.... and enjoy the cars we have eh
