Oooh, the rare double-whammy of an unsellable color on an unsellable car.

 

Degree of difficulty: I own a pink car.

 

 

That thing has Melanie's name ALL OVER IT!

One thing we can all be sure of, this color combination isn't going to come back into style anytime soon. What do you guys imagine the symbols are on the trunk lid mounted dealer name plate? I believe that the one on the right might be Mercury, the winged messenger. The one on the left has me puzzled, though. Any thoughts?

Rather than Winged messenger, the right side appears to be a caricature of a Native American with his feathered headdress laid back,

and the one on the left side of the dealer's name appears to be a canoe and possibly some sort of shield beyond it

Your thoughts seem more likely than mine. Someone from our prize department in Medford, OR will be contacting you shortly.

Could the Indian theme mean that that dealer

focused on Pontiac, but took on an Edsel franchise?

That's a nice original car in classic colors but it's still a loser on so many levels.  I had 1 '58 4-door Citation many years ago.  Black and silver.  Folks would say, oh, so that's an Edsel!  So cool.  I bet it's worth a lot of money."  To which I'd say, " Yes, it is!  Wanna buy it?".  Took a long time to sell but it went to New Zealand.
