Hi folks,

I was just going through a bunch of old photos and came across this one who I think is my great-great grandmother Nancy Rosetta Kershaw. I'm interested to know the year/make/model of this vehicle. Thanks for your help!

The car is not big enough to be a Stutz. Without taking the time to research it I think it is a 1928 or '29 Oakland Landau Sedan.

keiser31 - John - does the car above have a custom top, or is the body unique. I can only find pictures of cars with an additional window to the rear of the rear-door window. (see below) Does the above have that glass covered, in your opinion, or is it another body type? Thanks for the help - those old Pontiacs are precious.

The car is a 1929 Pontiac 6-29 Landau Sedan, their highest price model that year. The vertical louvers indicate it was a late 1929 model. The body style was deleted for 1930.

I have a friend here in Idaho who drives down to the coffee shop every once in awhile in one of those Pontiacs.
