5 Million Pontiacs

 Jan Norbye Jim Dunne, Pontiac, The Postwar Years, Motorbooks International 1979
Pontiac built its 5 millionth car on June 18 1954. I wonder where that fancy Star Chief Custom Catalina two-door hardtop ended up.

The 30 millionth Pontiac was built on Oct 29 1991 and the event has its own Facebook page.

In regard to the 1953 car, maybe the 5,000,000 number on the side was a temporary transfer - it was then removed and the car was sent to a dealer who had no idea that it was significant?
