Figured I'd start a little weekly fun game of sorts with a new Pontiac-related trivia question every Monday. Reply with your answer and feel free to reach out if you have any suggestions!

 

This week, we'll start off easy... What did Pontiac start out building? (bonus points for the year it started)

If you are referring to the start of Pontiac as the Oakland Motor Company! It was horse drawn carriages!

Hmm, i am thinking it was 1926, was the first Pontiac by its brand name and they made what was called the Series 6-27 range.

 they included the Landau coupe, sport roadster, sport cabriolet, a phaeton sedan, and sport Landau

All those stating horse drawn carriages (or some form of that) would be correct-o-mundo!

Quote

In 1893, Edward M. Murphy established the Pontiac Buggy Company in Pontiac, Michigan and produced horse drawn carriages thru 1906. 

If you haven't checked out our topic covering the history of Pontiac from inception to it's demise, you can read it all here: https://foreverpontiac.com/forums/topic/230-1893-pontiac-buggy-company-to-2010-pontiac/

Onto this week's question! 

So we know their first "vehicle" ever produced but can you list all types of transportation vehicles which Pontiac produced over the years?
