Pontiac Ends Production: The Love Continues For Collectors

We recently told you about the sad news that Pontiac had closed its doors for the last time. But for many fans of the iconic brand life still goes on. Tim Dye from Broken Arrow now has what is thought to be the largest collection of Pontiac memorabilia in the country. He started his collection as a teenager with a bottle of cologne and a hot rod.

Over the last thirty years he has added to his collection with a number of cars and trinkets. There are about twenty cars in the collection including a rare Can Am, a Canadian built 1964 Safari station wagon, 1890 Pontiac buggy, and a 1982 Grand Prix. Also in the collection are owner’s manuals, model cars, parts books, and much more.

Tim Dye now plans to move his entire collection to Pontiac, I11, and open a museum. There are many other Pontiac fans including Lu V ern Dokter who has been president and a member for 12 years of the Central Oklahoma Pontiac Association. According to Dokter interest has grown since the Pontiac brand was discontinued by GM.
