YAK Car Pic of the Day

1949 Pontiac Streamliner from “Clue”

I think I’d prefer to watch a movie made in 1954, rather than one made in 1985 and set in 1954. It’s the cars, of course! They’re too out of the ordinary (like, mostly classics or collectibles) when going back in time, such as this 1949 Pontiac Streamliner Deluxe station wagon from the made-in-1985 but set-in-1954 movie Clue. All of the cars in the movie were just too “precious” for me. It certainly wasn’t a bunch of cars you were likely to see gathered together very often. I did enjoy this wagon however. Too bad it didn’t stop raining long enough to get a better picture.
