    in addition to the bonneville (which I bought from the original owner in 2002), I bought my wife a new black torrent (whistler/backcomb edition) in 2007 and when my daughter got her licence just over a year ago I bought her a 2002 yellow sunfire.

    when my neighbour was selling his 1998 grand prix gt, I hooked my brother up with that car.

    I must be the low man on the Pontiac totem pole.

    Not counting the ones my Dad owned, I have owned only 3 Pontiacs: 2 Pontiac 6000's, and my current '51 Chieftain.

    I've owned and worked on mostly GM's for the last 30 years, but I am humbled by the depth of Pontiac-specific knowledge on this site.

    This will take a while. From first to present.

    66 GTO - Tripower 4 speed. MY first Pontiac. Hard to top.
    68 GTO - Ordered from the factory. Probably lowest optioned GTO ever made.
    Bench seat, radio, and HD posi.
    65 GTO - First restoration, put a rod thru the pan which me slowed down.
    64 GTO - 400 4 speed 411 posi. Didn't need first gear.
    65 GTO - Exec car. Auto air power windows power seat. Should have kept.
    66 GTO - Post car with 428 4 speed and a hot cam. Rattled on pump gas.
    67 GTO - Parts car. Should have restored. It was plum mist.
    65 GTO - Convertibile 4 speed. Did amateur restoration only to find rusty frame.
    02 Firebird - Last new Pontiac I'll ever buy. Wife totalled deployed air bags.
    02 Firebird - Insurance paid for.
    64 Catalina - Estate sale. All original with protecto plate. Still own.
    77 Can Am - Rare but a peeter to work on.
    04 GTO - Unloved and underrated. I like. Still own.
    81 Lemans Safari - Saved from the crusher. Can you say slow. Gone
    68 GTO - 462 auto 355 gears. Loud & nasty. I've come full circle. I'll keep this one.

    Well, I can't match these sheer numbers, but let me list a few car milestones in my life:

    Near as I can tell:

    My dad "courted" my mom in a 1960 Catalina convertible

    I came home from the hospital in a 1965 Catalina

    When I was in my early years my mom had a 1969 Firebird and my grandmother a 1967 Tempest

    Later my grandmother got a 1970 Bonneville with 455 and it became our family second car and used by me during my senior year in high school.

    My parents bought a new 1979 Grand Prix SJ with 301 and T tops, their first new car. I took my drivers test in it and had my first fender bender in it.

    Meanwhile I bought my 1963 convertible as a near basket case and got it drivable in time to take it to college and my first job after. I still have it.

    I then got the 1957 Star Chief as my first complete restoration project, which is nice but still not completed.

    And in 2001 got my 1979 Trans Am, the car I wanted in high school. It was 20 years late but at last I had the cool car. Long live Pontiacs! Todd

    Since some were listing family members I remembered a story my dad told me. Even though my mom always wanted a 65 Bonneville, she never got it nor any Pontiac, but my dad said once his dad bought a 38 Pontiac. He didn't realize till after the fact the Pontiac use to be a taxi here in Oklahoma. That thing was so wore out and my grandfather being a poor farmer couldn't get anyone to buy it. He finally found a guy who traded him 2 mules for the car. And I thought I've gotten good deals before, hehehe.

    Plus several drivers over the years.

    Haven't owned a Pontiac now in over 10 years though.

    Of the 100 plus cars I have owned I usually say with no regrets that I'm glad I owned them, however I don't miss them.
    I miss my 50 Pontiac.....
