Auto Monday – 1959 Pontiac Bonneville

'59 Bonneville

Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25ยข per gallon, and where Elvis Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.

    Incidentally, the owner misspoke, engine was a 389 (not 289) which was introduced in that model year.
