1957 Pontiac Star Chief – One mile at the wheel will reveal why it’s called America’s number 1 road car!

Built from Heart, Sweat and Years

If anyone thinks that there are no fairy godmothers and fathers, then they are not familiar with this 1957 Pontiac’s restoration project. All the tricks and magic were pooled together by a wonderful group of people who helped resurrect this classic car.

The restoration of this car was undertaken as a project by the members and friends of the Roamin Angels Car Club for Diane. The original intent was to get the car painted, running and on the road. 4 years later, the project became an almost full on-frame restoration partially funded by donations – both time and money, yard sales, parts – new and used, and completed with the expertise and knowledge of many people.

Over a period of 6 years, a group of dedicated people used their experience and expertise to create this beautiful driver for Diane. It was a labor of love and friendship that grew beyond the metal and parts.

Today, Diane drives the Pontiac every chance she gets.

From June 2009 through July 2014, a diligent group of ‘artisans’ worked on the 1957 Pontiac Star Chief turning it into a beautiful daily driver. Is there still things to do? Of course! The car is over 50 years old. But it is driven often and lovingly.
