View Full Version : 57 Golden Hawk in a Log Home Ad

10-16-2009, 07:19 PM
My wife bought the 2010 Annual Buyer's Guide of Log Home Living magazine as we are thinking about eventually building a retirement home and asked me to come and look at an advertisement in the magazine with an old car, asking what it was? Sure enough it appears to be the top half of a 1957 Golden Hawk. It is ashamed that the ad photo doesn't include more of the car. I went to their website and there are not pictures of the car or info about it. I've sent an e-mail to Old Virgina log Homes asking about the car and it's ownership. I'll post what I find out when I receive a reply. I had to scan this ad photo and then crop it and resize it so the image quality may not be the greatest.

One would think that if the ad is for the log home, that IT would be the prominent item in the picture. Maybe my eyes are just a bit prejudiced, but still. The car would look good in the ad anyway, but it does look like he's selling the car instead of the home. Still its a really cool picture. Is the pic available with the rest of the car showing?

There isn't a SDC member in Pennington Gap. That Hawk could have just been the Cabin owner's car if not the company's. If it's that cabin owner's car, it could be anybody, anywhere, any state. Nice setting, but not the best way to view the cabin! That picture could easily have been taken by a Stude fan and it just happen to have a cabin in it. [8D] I wonder if the full picture was ever sent in to Monomaniac? Nice cover.

It may have been rented by the ad agency.My neighbor rented my 81 Ford pick-up for the Kroger ad for the ACC football programs a few years ago.
