1959 Pontiac CatalinaReview
A Fun Ride For A Youngster. — ball bearings instead of roller bearings, Cartridge type oil filter. Reverse at the end instead of at the beginning. Parking brake was never used despite a single cylinder braking system- Back seat was spotless, never used, front seat was well, cloth and degraded, but drove perfectly in style-
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Could get rubber at 35 mph with the jet-a-way transmission. 389 motor HAULED ASS! the upholstry was mod, and no expense was spared on the little details.
Cons: rusted right out from under my feet.
