Seeking West Coast 1959 Pontiacs for 1959 General Motors Western National Meet, June 27, 28 - Tacoma


Recommended Posts

During recent years, enthusiastic owners of 1959 model year General Motors passenger cars have met and toured together here in the Puget Sound area of Washington state.

For 2015, we are taking the next step and expanding the concept to attract owners from a broader geographical area. Noted "Motorama" book author, David Temple, will be joining us from Texas, with the goal of photographing 1959 GM cars for potential future publication. We already have a couple of fine, original cars joining us from California -- an Oldsmobile Ninety Eight and a Buick LeSabre.


Our plan calls for a Saturday meet and photography session, followed by an optional, leisurely Sunday "1959 GM Imagination in Motion" driving tour. This is an opportunity to meet and participate with other owners of the GM Five for '59! We hope to re-create the famous 1959 General Motors Passenger Car Panororama photograph that was shot at the GM Proving Grounds and published as a fold-out in the 1958 General Motors Annual Report.

We're seeking cars that are generally "correct" with original-type wheel trim and ride height. This is not a Concours type event, but the emphasis will be on fine original or correctly restored automobiles, and we hope for representative examples of many body styles and factory color schemes.

If you have interest in participating with us, please send me an e-mail at: brianL@americanconstco.com

Here are a couple of '59 Pontiacs from last year's driving event:
