1928 Pontiac Landau Sedan

If it wasn't for the early Pontiacs, there wouldn't have been any later ones. Sounds like an oversimplified statement if ever there was one. But, how true that the tremendous acceptance of the early Pontiacs by an excited buying public shot Pontiac out like a shooting star of the automotive world.

Read this story of a beautiful 1928 Pontiac, a rare Landau Sedan, and all the work it took to make it a stunning example of one of Pontiac's finest early models. Enjoy it in our On-Line Magazine at: Click Here

1936 Pontiac Custom-Built English Motorhome Camper

One would think that the Americans invented camping, what with all our open spaces and highways. But this rare 1936 custom-built camper made in England disproves that we might have been the first. It also proves that the Old World craftsmanship of the English coach-builders was alive and well when this vehicle was constructed. Furthermore,the best news of all is that it is still in existence in "as new" condition, having recently gone to auction from the original family. Surely its new camping duties will be on display somewhere, but in the past it made some show appearances, so we hope that might continue.

1937 Pontiac- What a Lotta Car!

If you were suddenly transported back in time to 1937, you might be shocked at what was considered a big deal for automotive features and accessories. Here we take a look at Pontiac for 1937. Quite a sharp car, but quite basic by today's standards.

1939 Pontiac Woodie Wagon Advertising

Let's face it, 1939 wasn't exactly SUV time yet. When it came to selling a full-bodied vehicle like the '39 Pontiac Woodie Wagon, it was going to take some special effort, especially when figuring the price increase associated with this custom crafted body vehicle. Here we see factory promotional photos exhibiting the utilitarian nature of this special vehicle, everything from delivery duty, to camping, to hauling a big load of family and friends. These type of photos are just plain fun to look at!

1949 Pontiac Sedan Delivery Rat Rod

"There is always room for everyone in our hobby." Nowhere is this claim more tested than when it comes to the Rat Rods. Other than a counter-culture statement, I find no real use for them. And when that mentality takes away a Pontiac that is both rare and unique, the line may be crossed.

Let us know what you think about this 1949 Pontiac that has gone "Rat." That old expression "Uglier than Rat" has never been so true!

1956 Pontiac "Papoose"

So, you're jealous of the Corvette guys and their zippy little 2-seater sports cars, and you know full well PMD will never bring the Club de Mer nor Bonneville to market, so. . . what to do?!? How about you build your own Pontiac 2-seater sports car? Well, that's exactly what a father and son team in Marietta, Georgia did back in the '60s. And what a snazzy little Pontiac it turned out to be!

1957 Chieftain Project

What's better than looking at beautiful pictures of a fully restored Pontiac? Well, to me, it's the pictures along the way to that point. Those are the fun shots! We do, however, still look forward to seeing the completed pictures, but it sure is enjoyable to see the craftsmanship in the various stages.

1962 Tempest Goes Dyno

There are a lot of fun things to do with your hobby Pontiac, but here is one not everyone gets a chance to enjoy.. go for a Dyno Test.

Sure, the racer boys are used to this, watching as the needle squeaks up another peg after pouring more money down their carburetor; but the average guy probably never even thinks of this.

Watch in your area if a speed shop offers a "Dyno Day" like this proud '62 Tempest owner participated in. It is a great way for the shop to show off its facilities, and to build good will with the car community.

1963

This is a little information in answer to the question that floats around periodically "Hey, did you see those pictures of the tow Pontiac?" Well, this is a little more than just a "tow" vehicle. Those afraid of any heavy lifting "need not apply".

Like the JFK Navy Pontiac ambulance, this is a Pontiac that gained some fame and then disappeared. It would be neat to find out what ever happened to this vehicle, but information on it is slim.

1965 Tempest- HOT, HOT, HOT

There are fast Pontiacs, and then there is THIS 1965 Tempest storming through Missouri and the surrounding states. In this report by Pontiac racer and writer, Jeff Redhage, we get to enjoy the beauty of this well prepared Pontiac racer AND show car... the best of the best!

1967 Tempest OHC-6 Drag Racer

We all have some stories to tell of our car adventures from our youth, but this one goes well beyond the usual neighborhood tinkering. Not only was the choice of car power unusual, but for a couple young guys, they got pretty darned involved. And were successful in their efforts too.

1968 Pontiac Catalina Safari Wagon Cross-Country

In 1968, the car of choice by Popular Science magazine was... of course... a Pontiac-- well, we could have told you that was the best choice! From NYC to LA, this Catalina wagon performed flawlessly, got great mileage, and set a new record.

1969 GTO Resto-Mod

How often do you think something like a GTO convertible, an angry girlfriend, and a baseball bat lead to a happy ending? Rarely, I bet! Well, in this case it was a very happy ending for a lucky '69 GTO convertible and an even luckier GTO hobbyist.

Speaking of luck.... We are the luckiest though having noted automotive author and historian (who loves Pontiacs!), John "Gunner" Gunnell share this great story and more with all of us at PontiacRegistry.com.

1973-'75 Grand Am: Collectible Classic

Little is seen of these '73-'75 supposed European design influenced Pontiacs today. And even less is actually known about them. After all, a three year only car gets forgotten about pretty quickly. But we look to change that here. After all, these Grand Ams were pretty slick cars, and if a hobbyist is looking for something nobody else has, this may just be the answer.

2002 Trans Am- Collector Edition

Pontiac sent the 2002 Collector Edition Trans Am out the door in its old big, bad, and brazen way. To bad it hadn't maintained that attitude through the tough times... they might still be here today. But that's history...

Here we see the special brochure package that went out to sell this limited amount of 2000 quantity "Collector Editions" that would be built. If you don't have one of these T/As in your stable, at least enjoy the sexy brochure and a look at the last of a great car.

Gold in Them Thar Hills- Hurst and more!

If you love '69 and '70 Grand Prixs, especially rare 4-speed ones, Hurst gold, and even rarer GPs like a former NASCAR race car, then this trip in the Pennsylvania hills would have been a treat for sure.

A well known Pontiac collector and restorer took us on a tour of his collection recently, and it was fascinating.

I Dream of Jeannie Pontiacs

When Old Cars Weekly did a report on a long-lost "I Dream of Jeannie" Firebird, we couldn't resist sharing it with everyone. But even more so, we couldn't resist digging even deeper into the show's many Pontiacs used through its five year run.
