Question of the Day: How did you become a fan of a particular car brand?

Let us know in the comments how you became a fan of particular car brand


I became a fan of Pontiacs as a kid when the new neighbors moved in. Their family owned a Pontiac dealership, and I loved look of the Rally II wheels.

What was it for you?

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.


  1. For me, my love of Corvettes started when I saw the movie Corvette Summer when I was a kid. The movie itself wasn’t going to win an Academy Award and the vehicular star of the show wasn’t your untypical Vette but after seeing that movie, that was my dream car and I said that someday I own one. That day hasn’t come quite yet but maybe someday soon I will have the privilege of having a Corvette (preferably a C3) in my driveway to call my own!

  2. The 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Bandit was my first car and still my favorite. Yes, it was the movie that started it. I’ve regretted it every day since selling it but I am looking for another.

  3. When I was 14 a buddy on mine’s sister was dating a guy with a 62 Corvette and he took Joey and me for a ride in it, for me that was all it took, the hook was set!

  4. I always loved the Pontiac Logo (I also happen to be a Washington Redskins fan). My grandfather had what my dad described as a 1930 Pontiac that was bought new, never saw the car but the way my dad described it, it must have been fabulous. Always loved the style and performance that Pontiac had in the 50’s-60’s, my neighbors 1956 Pontiac Saferi wagon and the early 60’s Grand Prixs and of corse the GTO. Fast forward, my 1st new car was a 1969 Pontiac Firebird,

  5. As an 11 year boy, I fell in love with Pontiac because of Smokey & the Bandit. I have owned over 20 Pontiacs and currently have 5. A 2006 GTO, 2008 Solstice, two 2008 G6 convertibles (black, white) and a 2008 G6 GXP Street Edition that was featured on the Nov 2019 issue of Smoke Signals.
