Random Car Wednesday: 1960 Pontiac Catalina
Austin is a pretty crazy place, and if you wander around for long enough you're bound to see something you like. Take, for example, today's RCW: A very neat 1960 Pontiac Catalina. The Catalina utilized the same overall architecture as Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile and Cadillac models, but each brand had a different and unique design philosophy. A look at the windshield, however, and the connection becomes clear. Of the 1960 GM lineup, the Pontiac cars were among the most handsome, this sporty two-door Catalina in particular. The owner of this car is going for the custom cruiser look that was so popular in the 1960's, and it makes for a one-of-a-kind car. The bright green and white color scheme is something you don't see terribly often, and red wheels with white walls are another distinguishing feature. Overall, it's a good-looking car, and it makes me happy knowing it gets driven out on the city streets. That is, after all, what these old cars were built for.
