My first car in 1983 was a 73 Grand Prix w/ 83,000 miles that my parents had bought new. I drove that car every day year round (Minnesota) from 83 til Jan of 2000 til it had 240,000. Yeah, 17 years! Then I bought a 74 Grand Am 4 spd car for $200 intending to use it for parts. But it is so complete and rare, that I just parked it for a "some day restoration". I bought a 1934 3-Window Sport Coupe, then a 1933 Sedan (pile of parts on a frame). I then met my wife who drove a 95 Grand Am 2dr. She bought a 00 GP GT in 03 and that is her daily driver. I bought a 00 SSEi a year and a half ago. The SSEi is for "nice weather driving only and hibernates these Minnesota winters.
Now I know it'* not a Pontiac, but I also bought a 91 Astro cargo van from my work 7 years ago w/ 219,000 miles on it. They were the original owners so I have a complete history on it. It has been my daily driver for the last 7 years and now has 364,000 miles. Original engine , trans, and rear. Only thing changed was the water pump starter, alt, brakes, fuel pump and exhaust, plugs and wires and tires.
Oh, I should mention that I still have every one of these cars. I can't sell anything. I'm lucky that my dad has a large storage bldg.
Yep, we are a 7 Pontiac family, (They still count if they don't currently run right?)

My list is pretty short:

My first Pontiac is also the first car I bought on my own hook: 1984 Pontiac Fiero 2M4. It was a block 1 Fiero (one of the first 1000 made, I think mine was #783 if I read the VIN right) and it was a pathetic piece of junk. Blew motors, ate alternators, and had wiring faults galore. It was fun to drive, when it was actually running, instead of riding on a flatbed.

Pontiac #2...the '90 Bonnevile I currently have.
Pontiac #3...Wife'* new '06 Torrent.

Well, since I'm a bit young and poor to have owned the Bonnevilles, I will also include the ones my parents owned that I was so lucky to have been a secondary driver (or at least bragging child of) for as well, lol

1. 1986 Fiero (red)
2. 1986 Fiero (black, dad still owns)
3. 1992 Bonneville SSEi (off-white, fully loaded, i totalled it *cry*)
- This was a company car, immaculate condition. The only problem was that there was a knocking coming from under the hood and they thought it was a serious issue, so they sold it for... well let'* say under $500. Issue turned out to be just the crankshaft pulley needed replacing, tell me that wasn't a steal!...
4. 1999 Grand Prix (black, dad still owns)
5. 1992 Bonneville SE (midnight blue, i currently own *Blue Devil*)

I'm a Pontiac Guy, through and through, lol.

First car: White Ford Taurus, it was ok but the engine would bogg down at least once everytime I drove it. Not cool of you need to merge or something...

Next was a pretty cool car. Wasn't much to look at and didn't impress as far as takeoff goes, but it would take turns like a WRX. 105 horsepower, I was moving up from the 90 horsepower ford. But I had to get rid of the Audi 4000s because it was too expensive to fix.

Moving up again, 132 horsepower, but not as fun to drive. Lots of memories in her tho, the back seat folded down so I bought some foam and a blanket and turned the back into a bed. Also outran a certain Crown Victoria inthat car.

First car: 1968 Firebird 350. Cool looking, no A/C, 2 barrel single exhaust, and the stupid 2 speed power glide tranny. Still rated at around 275 hp (I think). Couldn't do a burnout to save my life! But all the kids in high school thought it was cool. I still kick myself because I let it go for nothing. Couldn't afford to fix it up since I just got married...

1971 GTO - my favorite. Still dream about that car. Totalled at an intersection when a bunch of red-necks drinking beer and driving a pickup truck didn't stop...400 CID, 300 hp.

The rest in order (warning - I'm a Pontiac guy so the list gets long!):
1987 Bonneville - great car
1987 Firebird - looked awesome but had the puppy-dog 305 CID
1994 Bonneville - just totalled over the weekend (see seperate post)
1989 Sunbird convertible
1995 triple white Trans AM convertible
1995 Firehawk convertible (my baby!)
2002 Bonneville
1997 Bonneville

Hey, you asked!

My first Pontiac was a 1955 Chieftian. It had a factory 45 rpm record player! It was installed under the dash on the passenger side and worked upside-down. Wierd.

My second was a 1968 Bonneville Station Wagon. Very cool car. It had every option you could think of.
