What an awesome photo.

Pretty girls and a cool car!

Tempting fate

"Eloise, please stop bouncing up and down on the tree - you're making me nervous."

Straight Eight and Three on the Tree

The chrome striping running down the length of the hood was known as the "waterfall"

1941 Pontiac Deluxe Torpedo Convertible Sedan Coupe

This is the six cylinder model, which sold for $1,023. Pontiac enjoyed record sales of 330,000 units for 1941.

From a magazine ad:

Let your eyes linger on the gay, young grace of this Pontiac "Torpedo" Convertible Sedan Coupe. It's "extra special," all right, with its long, clean lines, its colorful upholstery, its invitation to come and have fun. At the same time, it's a Pontiac through and through, sharing with all other Pontiacs an earned reputation for giving you fine quality at low cost. And like all other Pontiacs, it is exceptionally inexpensive to drive and to maintain and is available as either a six or an eight with the eight costing only $25 more!

Sorry Ladies

The Pontiac is the star of this photo op. It's gorgeous.

Out on a Limb

The lady did well to get up there in heels.


Two Babes and a Pontiac. Whitewalls to boot.
