Larry Watson's Personal Photos

© Larry Watson Collection | Custom Car Photo Archive


I have shown two photos of this really fantastic Larry Watson painted 1958 Pontiac Bonneville before. One was a side shot of this car before Larry added the pale pearl light blue outlines, and the other was a similar photo as this taken at the same location but showing the rear 3/4. This photo shows that the Bonneville letters where shaved of the hood and the chrome ornaments on the front fender tops where also removed. Most everything else was left the way this Pontiac left the factory. The rest of the customizing was done using the right parts as the 1958 Lancer four bar hubcaps which had candy blue painted centers, the right size tires and white wall's. And then of course the perfect paint applied by Larry. Very brave to paint a Huge car like this in a very brilliant white pearl. But I think that the light blue outlines help reduce the size of the car for the eyes. The subtile outlines accenting the hood and top of the front fender peaks are just outstanding. What a great car.

    I've got a '58 Bonneville and am always looking for more pics of them.  Where are the other two pics you mention here?  I'd love to see them.  And can I post them at  I've got a folder there for '58 Pontiacs.  I'm on the HAMB as mrpontiac.  Thanks.
