I've always had a weakness for Pontiacs, and still mourn GM's killing of the brand.

My daddy had a Catalina when I was a kid, and I've owned four Firebirds in my life. My son David got the third one up and running in the past few weeks. It's been sitting in his mom's garage for about 10 years. But he scrimped and saved and did a lot of the work on it himself. And now it's back on the road. And still a whole lotta fun to drive.
