Pontiac 1908 Runabout Logo

$25.00

The Pontiac 1908 Runabout script that we cut is a forerunner of what is known as Pontiac today. I’m not going to profess to knowing the exact history. I’ve seen things that said it was made by the Oakland Motor Car Company, and also of it being made by The Pontiac Spring and Wagon Works. In the end, both companies were purchased by Durant in 1909.  Is it a direct descendant?  That’s doubtful, but in the end, it is part of the fabric of history that is GM. We cut this logo from mild steel a little thicker than 1/8 inch.

The picture for this cutout is for general purposes only and no two pieces will look exactly the same. If you like shiny, polished pieces, this cutout does not have a shiny, polished surface. Our steel blanks are stored outdoors in the weather and change over time. So it is not unusual for there to be some sort of distress to the metal’s surface, such as: heat marks from the cutting process, mild surface rust, other blemishes, marks, scratches or indentations. Elements that distress the metal just add to the character of the piece.

  • Bare metal
  • Size: 16.4″w x 7.2″h
