Classic car spotlight: Bobby's Pontiac wagon

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A classic Pontiac wagon may be the only one of its kind at Cruisin' the Coast.

Cruiser Bobby Coln of Tennessee says he flew all the way to Hackensack, New Jersey to buy it.

"The car is a 1955 Pontiac Safari Wagon," said Coln. "They made about 3,500 of them. They say there's about 25 left."

Coln says he has put a lot of work into the car to make it more modern.

"I blowed it apart and put a late model running gear," said Coln. "It's got a 455 Pontiac in it now. It's got factory air, power steering, brakes, cruise."

Coln has been a Cruiser a few times. He says the beautiful weather, wonderful people, and food keep him coming back.
