The Pontiac Club de Mer was a purpose-built, experimental car that was built by Pontiac for the General Motors Motorama in to celebrate General Motors ' commitment to futuristic design. The brainchild of GM engineer-designer, Harley Earl Paul Gillian was also involved being the Pontiac Studio head at the time , the "de Mer" was a two-door sport Roadster that incorporated innovative breakthrough styling like a sleek, low-profile body encasing a large powerplant, a design trend used widely in LSR land speed record trials at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah during the s. As per GM's "kill order",  it was reportedly scrapped in A running replica based on a Pontiac chassis was also built by Marty Martino. The design of the "de Mer" drew its visual impetus from contemporary aircraft construction of its day, employing a stainless steel monocoque , individual wind screens similar to those on the Lincoln Futura later TV's Batmobile , aerodynamically fashioned fascia that flowed down from the hood skin to cover most of the grill, concealed headlights, and a single rear-deck dorsal fin. Also featured were twin "silver-streaks"  that flowed into low-profile hood scoops, a carry-over from Pontiac's Bonneville Special two years prior. The overall styling of the body was a smooth, non-undulating profile, similar to an American supersonic jet fighter , with virtually no protrusions or recesses of any kind save for the out-vents on the leading edge of both doors, and the fin. The vehicle had no bumpers, a common feature on most concepts, and the door handles were quite small.

I have been dating a great guy for about a year now, and we started dating shortly after my parents died of cancer. When we started dating, he was in his fellowship. But what I discovered surprised me. I never pressure him to spend time with me. Although there are no strict rules as to who should do the asking, the Mormons are very conservative and in general, they expect guys to do the asking. She will be pressured and will likely shut you out. In other words, eternal marriage really is worth it, I think.
