I have been a Pontiac fan since the beginning. I was raised by my grandmother, she had a '63 Catalina. That was the first car I ever drove. As a kid, I remember always admiring Pontiacs. My uncle had a '65 Grand Prix, and I can still see with intricate detail, the view from the back seat of that car. The big chrome console, the shifter, the gauges, the grab bar. I really liked the stacked headlights, just like grandma's car. That Grand Prix had that burbling idle...unforgettable. So later, as a young driver, I was really impressed by the older kids' cars. There were mustangs, camaros, road runners, just all that. Then I got to drive a '64 GTO. I wanted to buy that car so bad, but grandma wouldn't have it. It was red, and had Keystone Klassic mags, 4-speed, and ohhh was it FAST! That pretty much did it for me, I wanted nothing to do with what everyone else was driving, I wanted a Pontiac. I had to settle for a '67 buick skylark 4 door (horrors). I saved my money for the GTO. By the time I had the money, the GTO was gone. Then I got a '72 chevelle coupe. It was pretty fast, especially for a 350 two barrel. Then FINALLY, I sold the chevelle and used the money to buy a '73 Pontiac Le Mans Sport Coupe. It was valencia gold with big white stripes going down both sides. That car was sweet! I loved that car.
Through the years, I have had 17 Pontiacs. I still own 4. I bought my '75 Grand Prix because it had been about 5 yrs without a Pontiac V-8, and enough was enough!! A couple yrs after that, I saw the '73 Grand Ville, and always wanted a convertible, so I brought that home. A couple yrs later, I was talking to a guy that I just met, and of course, I started talking Pontiacs. I mentioned how I would love to have a '73-75 Grand Am, and he said that he had just gotten one! I asked if it was for sale, and he said the only reason he bought it was to flip it. So, I bought that and the '73 Le Mans parts car that came with it. I would love to have a GTO again, but they are now way beyond my means. This is an addiction, but I love it so!
