    Jim Hallman of Northern Illinois Fiero Enthusiasts joins us to talk about all-things Fiero. We'll cover this Pontiac model from tip to tail and discuss the car itself, the philosophy behind its creation and manufacturing, it's collectability over the years, and how Fiero enthusiasts might be a bit different than you're typical Pontiac collector. Of course, he'll have some great personal stories on how he found his way to the Fiero model over 30 years ago. Lot's to learn about this iconic 80's Pontiac!

    The triumphant return of the Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals (MCACN) featured many stunning Pontiacs on display.  Among them, a very special GTO was unveiled on the first day of the show.  A GTO that was on display at the 2019 MCACN show.  Although this time it looked a bit different, to say the least!  For this installment of Pontiac Talk, we chat with owner Paul Lesiczka about this very special GTO.

Andrew - East Coast Retailers ,

Mark is a true professional!

Mark does a great job interviewing guests and knows a thing or two about Pontiac history too. He’s a true professional and delivers a very entertaining podcast.
Only problem is, too long between episodes.

Henry's Son ,

A Ford guy loves this Podcast!

As I note above, I’m a Ford/Lincoln guy all the way, but Mark does a superb job! The interviews are very conversational and natural, not simply asking and responding to a series of questions lie so many automotive pods.

Also, the production value is very high, few things are more irritated then a broadcast with uneven volume levels. All voices are sharp and clear.

I throughly enjoy each show and look forward to future ones, job well done.

This keeps up, I might just lean more towards GM………no, probably not. 😉
