But what is an "Oakland" you may ask?? The Wikipedia tells us that Oakland was a General Motors brand automobile manufactured in Pontiac, Michigan. In the GM product ladder, an Oakland was a more upscale alternative to a Pontiac, but it was positioned downmarket from Oldsmobile and Buick.
We found this old vintage Oakland retired but not forgotten taking pride of place out the front of a house in Malmsbury Central Victoria on a recent trip through that area. It's appeal to someone like me with a camera is obvious. Just had to stop and take some photo's.
