    I went through the want ads on Hamb not to long ago and a car caught my eye
    being a 49 & 50 Olds 88 coupe lover this 49 Pontiac Silver Streak coupe kept me going back to look at it, finally i called Phil and we made the deal :)

    Now i just have to go to Whitehall Michigan to get it, hopefully next weekend

    here she is a California car built at the South Gate California plant and now in Michigan





    right now shes bone stock Straight Eight and three on the tree
    i'm just going to get the coupe driving for now

    this is the ad that did it

    So you are the one that bought it,I seen it in the classifieds and had visions of a 324 Olds under the hood to try to mimic a Olds coupe. If I remember the asking price you cant get a Olds in the same shape for that kind of money and enjoy it.

    went to Whitehall Michigan picked up the 49 Pontiac club coupe
    i like it, cool car

    Phil helping me get the 49 ready to go he has many cool cars, Great guy

    stopped at my sons in Elmhurst Illinois coming and going to Michigan

    my crew checking out the new 49 coupe

    cool old Pontiac dealer frame

    got the car unloaded at home great weather the whole trip
    except in Hudson Wisconsin snow on the ground the good
    it wasn't on the road but it was in my driveway at home

    the only bad thing that happened was just north of Benton Harbor Michigan
    a Big deer ran out right in front of me with a guy passing me on the left
    the good news everybody made it, i'm glad the deer was fast

    i'll have some photos oh the 49 at the house later

    nice car, if it wasn't far from where i reside i would of bought it and picked it up. i didn't want to hit up the seller asking questions about it knowing that i couldn't pick it up. just waiting for something closer to pop up and catches my attention.
