#6 Barry Blomquist’s Pontiac 2+2
Full Story – Pontiac 2+2
It’s well known that the Pontiac GTO helped kick off the muscle car wars in the mid-1960s, but few people recall that Pontiac had more than one flavor – and size – of powerful vehicle in its showrooms. The division had gained a reputation for performance and packaged it in upscale full-size platforms, too, with cars like the Grand Prix and the lesser known Pontiac 2+2.
Barry Blomquist can attest to the appeal of the 2+2 – he bought one new in 1965 at the tender age of 19. Even though he only owned it for little more than a year, it’s a car he recalls fondly. “It was a real neat car,” Barry says, “The mid-’60s Pontiacs were beautifully designed and great performance cars. One of my favorite cars ever.”
