Illustrations from past decades / 34 / The Pontiac art of VK and AF / part two

Another helping of those wonderful Pontiac ad paintings by Van Kaufman and Art Fitzpatrick. The first selection (June 2016) looked at the cars at night, this selection shows the cars in a nautical or water setting. Pontiac pitched the copy and illustrations at affluent folk who owned or aspired to own a yacht or maybe something bigger. While the boat is in dock what better car to drive and park by the beach or lakeside.
