Silver streak girl with Pontiac car

ca. 1937 • Pontiac Motors Division • Photographer unknownWhat makes this picture good, says the publicity man, is the pretty girl to match the Pontiac car, the bathing suit and the several yards of white adhesive tape used to carry out the silver streak radiator design on the front of the bathing suit. . . . Not a bad idea, providing you are interested in bathing beauties.
