Well, word on the strret is that Pontiac is on its way out...

Sniff...

My second car was a 51 Pontiac... Okay, it was the only Pontiac I ever owned and traded it and $10 for a '49 Studebaker... Both were junk but, hey...

But over the years I had many friends who had Pontiacs... Some were cool, others weren't...

Of the cool ones, my next door neighbor who was at the Naval Academy got a nrw '65 GTO, 389 tri-power... Nice car, really... It was too bad for him that he really was afraid of it 'cause we got talkin' tarsh and I had a '65 Falcon with a h.p. 289 (271 h.p.) and he kinda challenged me to a drag race in the middle of town one night and the Falcon tore it up... I don't think that boy ever had been in a car over a 100 mph... But it was a nice car... Much cooler than my little Falcon...

Fast Forward... Claude Simpson had a big ol' 69ish Grand Prix Convert with a 455 in it... It wasn't quick but really felt good to ride in with the top down...

I liked the Fieros... Especially the ones with the 231 V-6's... Reak nice little cars... Okay, not all that well built but hey...

But it looks like this is the end of the line...

Actually, I thought the end of the line came a long time ago with the Pontiac Sun-Chicken... It was junk right off the assembly line...

So, what was your favorite Pontiac???
