Great job. Looks like you can see the light at the end of the tunnel after a lot of work!
Personally I think 57 Safaris are one of Pontiacs best designs!
teach me your ways
That looks great! Congrats on getting it going and keeping at it.
Are you running out of space now with all your fine cars?
From one mid-50's Poncho owner to another:
Great job! It's beautiful. Well worth the effort. I'd love to see it in person one day.
Three old cars is the limit! No more space, no more money, and we've got a 14 month old girl wanting more of Daddy's time!
Looks cool, factory look, lowered, I like it,
Very nice. I have a 57 Pontiac 2 door hardtop project waiting for me to go pick up.
looks great! good job
Love your car ! A great save too. Thanks
Man, that is just beautiful. I love well styled cars in an original, funky color scheme. The greens work really well together on your car. I bet that chrome did cost a pretty penny!
Great job, and thanks for saving her..
Very nice. The Safaris were underrated given the common desire for Nomads. I dig that interior, nicely done.
That safari is one of the baddest wagons around! I love it! Can't wait to see it around!
Congrats on hitting a home run! Beautiful.
Guy down the street has a '56 Safari project, sitting - he literally won't speak to me about it. Sigh... At least I had fun with the two '57 Chieftains I had - a sedan (hot rod) and a hardtop (cruiser). Enjoy yours...
Very, very nice work Jay...Can't wait to see it.
and more than that!!! I dig the factory colors. The new chrome goes over the top and I cant imagine the cost and dont want to
But the interior? SOB!!! the material, colors and character are understated, yet knocks you right in the head. You have certainly kicked us in the ass that a finished car is a nice thing. You did good sir!!!
the Family Wagon looks great. I keep thinking that i need one for my growing family.
Wife, two kids and a dog, but like you said space, money and time with family.
Anyway i hope it makes it to Santa Maria. what day are you going up. Scotty and a couple of the guys from the club are leaving Thursday, i'm going with the wife on Friday, if your going up Friday let me know and we from Nor Cal can go down together.
I hope all of the details are working out for your club's show. We are busy with ours, as usual.
anyway the wagon looks great and see ya soon
Did you lower the back with blocks? I asume the original color was the limefire green with white top and insert or did the seacrest green just fade that badly? I am planning on doing my Starchief the same green but with white. Thanks for the inspiration it really looks good!
Beautiful car, bro. The two tone is awsome.
Very Inspirational, I need something like this for the kids...... (wow that sounds weird)
I am sooo freakin jealous!
That is a beautiful wagon, good work!!!
Wow! That wagon is gorgeous! The color combination is awesome. Beautiful job man, just beautiful...
really nice wagon. nice job.
Thanks for giving us an insight into your transformation !, five star thread .
Holy crap. That's sweet.
Wow wee, nice!, Nice colors and very sweet interior. If you plan on taking that to Sparky's some time in the near future, give me some heads up. I'll make a special effort to make that one. Otherwise, hope to see it in Santa Maria.
Everything is 'right' with your car. Sweet, sweet ride.
