I remembered Pontiac because Smokey told me himself! LOL, No kidding, that guy was such a cool dude. About twenty five years ago I called on an ad in Hemmings motor news on a Buick race engine. Smokey himself answers the phone and I had about a 30 minute (maybe an hour) conversation with the man. He told me about the Pontiac Tempest 4 cyl he had, that is the only reason I knew he ran Pontiacs. I didn't know if they were the first of course, it was the only thing I ever remembered about him other than Chevys and I got it from that phone call.
