I Own the Purple Pontiac

3

In November a gentleman named Rob sent me an email asking if I had any more photos of his beloved Purple Pontiac known as the Tomahawk, and without hesitation I replied ‘yes’.

I’ve been a big fan of the car since my first encounter with it at Performance World in 2011 and when I saw it again at the  at the Fleetwood Country Cruize In free of stanchions I made sure to take several photos.

Over the Christmas break I rummaged through my portable hard drive for those original photos and gave them a re-edit.

These photos were taken prior to my switch to raw format so there was only so much I could do, but they are a big improvement over the first time they were posted.

The roof’s been chopped 4.25″ and retains all the factory glass

As you can see the paint hue varies with the light it’s under

Rob isn’t all that far away so hopefully this summer I can go check out the car outside of a show environment and get some photos that really capture it.

I would love a rolling shot or two of it…
