YAK Car Pic of the Day(s)

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I say “Day(s)” because this 1977 Pontiac Catalina keeps popping up in my viewfinder. This pic is from last Labor Day’s car show in Niawanda Park. I also came across it a few weeks back at a Cruise Night at the Texas Roadhouse. And I’m pretty sure that yesterday I saw it parked in a Lewiston driveway. It’s a real survivor, perhaps fulfilling the prophesy in that year’s brochure (which you can view here), which sounds a bit like it was translated from Chinese: “But perhaps the best show of Catalina’s value will come years from now. With continued good looks. Pontiac is using the most corrosion resistance materials in its history.”
