RealRides of WNY - 1953 Pontiac

You almost never see a 1953 Pontiac Chieftain Catalina parked on a Buffalo street these days, and if you do the odds of it wearing a set of New Brunswick license plates are almost nil. But back in 2010 we saw just that on a Black Rock side street. If you look past the Silver Streaks which make their way over the hood & trunk, and blot out the small fins atop the rear fenders, from the rear three-quarter’s view you can really see just how much the Pontiac and Chevrolet shared a body shell — even more so in Nouveau Brunswick had you chosen a Laurentian (below) or Pathfinder over the more expensive Chieftain.
