I will freely admit to being a gear head.
In fact, I have a thing for big Sixties full-sized passenger vehicles; my first car was a 1960 Buick LeSabre. Even my second car was big – a clapped-out `65 Impala. That said, I would have absolutely no trouble in owning today’s featured vessel: The “Wide-Track” 1967 Pontiac.
Stylish and huge, the Catalina, Ventura, and Bonneville models all had “stacked headlights” and and bumpers integrated with the lines of the car. Engine choices were “Huge” and “More Huge.” Driving one of these was like a dream; with its quintessential American stance and smooth settings on the suspension, they excelled in straight-line driving and road trips – giving up some ability in the corners.Art Fitzpatrick penned a large number of automotive ads during his successful art career, including many of them for Pontiac. His jaunty upbeat take on the full-sized GM products of the 1960s is now legendary. Some of those ads – depicting the `67 Pontiac – are shown below, and others can be seen here.
