Default A passage of keys

After eight months of waiting my, "new" car arrived today courtesy of Evan Butchers. I have longed for a 65 Pontiac high top since I sat in one down at our local ambulance company in 65. Sometimes dreams actually do come true!

That is a beautiful ambulance. I LOVE the roof lights. Good luck....can't go wrong with a Bonneville....I drive one everyday (although being a 2005 model, it's a bit newer than that one----I can't believe they don't make Pontiacs anymore, that's just sad).

Thanks to every one for their comments. Without the PCS and its members I never would have been able to pursue this dream.
Evan has also been terrific in making this happen. I know he sensed my passion and was happy to see something special to him passed on to the next generation in the PCS.

Default Congratulations

Tim,

Congratulations on taking delivery of the Pontiac. Len Langlois was showing me pictures yesterday of it being loaded onto the semi trailer for the trip west. Needless to say, we will truly miss the car from the museum display.
