History of Pontiac
Incorporated in 1899 as the Pontiac Spring and Wagon Works by Harry G. Hamilton and Albert G. North, the company we now know as Pontiac introduced its first vehicle in 1907. Powered by innovative Pontiac parts such as a twelve horsepower two-cylinder engine, the 1,000 pound chain-driven highwheeler was exhibited in New York City's Grand Central Palace by the Carriage Dealers Association. Later that year another determined automaker named Edward M. Murphy founded the Oakland Motor Company, which merged with Pontiac Spring and Wagon Works in 1908. A fifty-percent interest in the Oakland Motor Company was then purchased by General Motors President William C. Durant in 1909, who purchased the remaining fifty-percent after Edward M. Murphy passed away that same year.
Under General Motors ownership, the automaker manufactured a bevy of best-selling automobiles, including the Chief, Tempest, Bonneville, Catalina, Firebird and GTO. The hallowed name has become synonymous with high-performance muscle cars, and will no doubt remain a legend among car enthusiasts for the next 100 years.
