A Pontiac in Wintergreen

Pontiac hubcap

This Pontiac logo was discontinued in 1956 or 1957. I found this hubcap propped against a tree, amidst the wintergreen, in the woods up the mountain behind my house. I'm wondering who found it and put it there!

The original logo was that of an American Indian headdress, which was used as a logo until 1956. The American headdress is connected to the name of brand "Pontiac" which was the name that was taken from Chief Pontiac, an American Indian chief who led an unsuccessful uprising against the British shortly after the French and Indian War.
