Chief Pontiac

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

I'm an italian student and i'm collecting some informations about Pontiac.

I was wondering if there is any kind of connection between chief Pontiac and the values of Pontiac cars.

It's only a choice based on the place of birth? Or he actually represents something?

Thank you!

Ok, Thank you for the long answer!

In my head the indian chief represents strength or freedom, so i thought that his icon wasn't a casual choice.

I'd like to ask another question, if it is in topic. 

What does represent a Pontiac car? I mean the idea of driving and life that this brand represent

I hope i'm not asking too much!

thank you!

He's even more impressive in person. I'm hoping he'll get around to writing a book before his memory gets faulty and we loose that treasure trove of trivia.

Pro - you are second person in as many months who have suggested that I take up writing the great American novel. I actually do have any idea for a book.

stratman - perhaps you are thinking of the Indian chief Tecumseh. He was a Shawnee indian. He was a year old when Pontiac died. He organized a large tribal confederacy that was largely in the midwest (which became known as Tecumseh's Confederacy) which opposed the United States during "Tecumseh's War" and he became an ally of Britain during the War of 1812.

Isn't Virginia the state that go so big for its britches that they had to split it into two? Into West, By God, Virginia and the Commonwealth of Virginia (I couldn't resist! Sorry stratman.)?

 

P.S. I will be spending this Friday night in Wytheville VA on my way to Hilton Head SC.

Tecumseh!... thanks Frosty! So... you weren't a history major per chance?

 

Visiting fabulous downtown Wytheville, eh? (that's With-vul, btw) I'm only 3 hours north on I-81! Have a safe trip Frosty.

 

As far as the whole VA vs WVA thing...

History? It wasn't called history when he was young ... it was the evening news.

Nice.

This coming from the guy whose sense of direction is so keen that his indian name should be Chief Wearda Fekawi!  He hasn't figured out that by living in Quebec that he is still technically in Canuckistan, despite what the local provincials may think otherwise.
