The Kolden Report: It's a Pontiac Sunset! Part Two, August 25, 2013

Hello, kids!

Back along the lake.....

 
 


Pontiac pride.
 
  


  Cursive logo.

Who remembers the "Pontiac Eight?"

 
 Inline image 3


Glove box clock.  (Forward thinking designers, weren't they?)
  


 
 
 

Deco emblem.

 
 
 
Straight eight.  (Plus a pack rat nest.)

 
 
 
 

Even the horn placement is decorative, albeit reminiscent of the female form.

 
 
 

  Aw, who stole the hood ornament?  I bet it was a dandy!

  
 
 

Body by Fisher?...... (Wikipedia says:  
 Fisher Body is an automobile coachbuilder founded by the Fisher brothers in 1908 in DetroitMichigan; it is now an operating division of General Motors Company.  Who knew?)

 
 
  

I was surprised to come across this sign declaring the area only lawful to enter by permission of the Glasgow Air Force Base Commander!   Who was the commander?   Are they yet living?  (Especially since the sign says 1950.....)  And just what year was it the base became defunct?

 
 
  
  
Good road. (Note I did not ride DOWN, instead I photographed which does not do the incline justice at all.)
  

 
   
 
  


What comes up, must go down.

 
 
  


Resting place.
  

  

 
 
 
Shape of sunset.  (I am always amazed at nature's shapes and patterns, such as these curly grasses.)


 
 

  
Hill side sunset.

  
 
 
 

  Uncrowded camp spot.

  
- Stay tuned for more lakeside scenery.
