Pontiac did a great job of distinguishing itself from other GM brands. Not only did it create the GTO, Firebird, Trans Am, and Bonneville, but the company’s dedicated staff designed, developed, and built some of the most audacious and progressive experimental and concept cars. The management, engineers, and designers had a bold and distinct vision for Pontiac, and these cars were infused with their unique passion and vision. With a keen eye on the future, Pontiac created ground-breaking designs to show its customers what was possible. Pontiac Concept and Show Cars: 1939-1980 gives you a comprehensive perspective of these landmark cars in the history of automotive design. Don Keefe, Pontiac historian and former editor of Smoke Signals, takes you on a fascinating tour of Pontiac’s automotive visions and wildest creations. Some of the cars never went beyond the experimental stage; others became prototypes. You learn the inside story on the design, modeling, and fabrication processes. And you are shown an automotive future that could have been, and the cars that became history. During the 1950s, Pontiac concept cars such as the Bonneville Specials, Strato Streak, and La Parisienne wowed the public at the Motorama show. During the 1960s and 1970s, Pontiac was tapped into the youth market and the radical designs that used European influence to create aggressive sports/muscle cars. The GTO Flamme, XP833, Firebird Pegasus, Cirrus, Banshee, and others piqued interest and kept enthusiasts coming back for more. These fascinating and innovative Pontiacs from 1939 to the 1980s and beyond are examined in exquisite detail. Pontiac fans, as well as auto history buffs, will enjoy reading and learning about these cars as well as Pontiac’s Project X car program. If you’ve been looking for a book that authoritatively and comprehensively covers the remarkable and influential Pontiac prototypes of the past, or simply love concept cars in general, this book will entertain you for hours. • Reveals the comprehensive story of Pontiac concept and experimental cars • Contains behind-the-scenes information on building show cars • Concept cars are highly sought after among elite collectors and command high prices at auction About the Author Don Keefe is one of the most respected and knowledgeable Pontiac experts in the country.
