1968 Pontiac GTO Bumper of the Year

The Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by Pontiac in generations from 1964 to 1974 model years, and by GM’s subsidiary Holden in Australia from 2004 to 2006. A unique feature was the body-color Endura front bumper. It was designed to absorb impact without permanent deformation at low speeds. Pontiac touted this feature heavily in advertising, showing hammering at the bumper to no discernible effect.

A bumper is a structure attached to or integrated with the front and rear ends of a motor vehicle, to absorb impact in a minor collision, ideally minimizing repair costs. Bumpers were at first just rigid metal bars.

Pontiac was a brand of automobile manufactured and sold by General Motors between 1926 and 2010.

Yahoo, Mountain Dew!

Mountain Dew’s name is a previously-existing euphemism for moonshine, which likely traces back to Ireland, and has generally been marketed to highlight its potency. It was originally marketed as “zero proof moonshine” and had pictures of hillbillies on the bottle until 1973.

Hillbilly can be a pejorative term referring to people who dwell in remote, rural, mountainous areas usually of the United States. Because of its strongly stereotypical connotations, the term is frequently considered derogatory and is highly offensive to those of Appalachian heritage.
