A big "hello" to all my fellow Pontiac lovers. I'm new to the forum, but a long time Pontiac owner & enthusiast. My own ride is a '66 Catalina drop top that has been in my family since purchased by my mother, new in June of '66. The car was driven by her for 10 years, (yes, sadly, including winter), then purchased by me in late '75. it has NOT been winter driven for the last 45 years, and my youngest son & i did a reasonably complete restoration on it during 2016 & 2017. I'll be posting some photos of the restoration project in the near future, in case anyone is interested. The car now has 51 K miles, (and a little change) on it), and runs better than when it was new. It is my personal opinion that; dropping the Pontiac Division was one of the biggest mistakes G.M. ever made. But toward the end, with the advent of the Aztek & G-6, the demise of the Pontiac brand was easy enough to see coming. Well, at least it has made the ones we own & love more valuable & significant than ever, so maybe it wasn't all bad news. Besides that; without Pontiacs becoming an "orphan" brand, we wouldn't have the membership in groups like this, or the wealth of older, well preserved Pontiacs to enjoy. Let's keep 'em rolling.
