While Jim Feurer now pilots a late-model Pontiac GTO, his love for the iconic muscle car runs deep. So deep in fact, that as a 22-year-old, the Wauconda resident ordered a new 1966 example.
Jim Lindberg’s 1967 Pontiac Ventura may look factory fresh now but much of its life has been drastically different. After being assembled in Kansas City, the massive two-door was shipped to Welter Pontiac in South Bend, Ind., where a local buyer bought the Ventura with a specific vision: competing on the show circuit.
Whenever the Halloween season rolls around, things can tend to get a bit ethereal. Case in point; Ken Fritz’s 1986 Pontiac Trans Am. All three of its owners purchased the car during the month of October. The original owner took delivery on Oct. 18, 1985, in Rockford. The second snagged the car on Oct. 19, […]

It may have been funds running out, a builder in over his head or just a plain lack of interest but either way, we’ll never know. We spied the primered 1939 Packard sedan in northern Illinois, not far from the […]
