I find the Bonneville much more attractive, style wise, than the Park Lane. The Mercury looks far too back heavy with the rear wheel treatment.

That Park Lane is absolutely fabulous to me.

I personally like the Merc better.  But the Pontiac is nice as well.

I like both and went tie.  The tailight treatment on both is very cool.  ✌️

Pontiac by a lot. The division was on its takeoff roll, and the car shows it.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

MERCURY for me!  It's the taillights that really grab me on it.  If the comparison would have been 1959 Mercury vs. Pontiac, my choice would have been the other way around.  The '59 Pontiac was one of the most beautiful designs ever, while to my eyes the Mercury for '59 looked cluttered and heavy.  But for 1960, MERCURY was beauty on wheels.

I have a sad story (for me anyway) regarding a 1960 Pontiac 1:25 scale model by AMT.  I was nine years old in 1960 and I used to bring that model with me when I'd ride with my dad.  One night I left it in the backseat on the floor.  My dad worked at Hamm's Brewery and one of the employee benefits was every Friday, he would get a case of beer.  Well this particular Friday he put the case of beer on the floor in the backseat, without noticing that he'd smashed my model under it.  And smashed is the key word, because the model was broken and flat.  He couldn't have apologized anymore than he did, but alas, the damage was done.

It's a rare tie for me; I like them both a lot, but prefer the 1961 version of each much more; especially the Pontiac.
