Eric and I had never met face to face until the middle of August when he drove his '63 Lemans up from Langley to Kamloops to display along side of my '63 Lemans in the 10th annual Hot Nite in the City show and shine. We also participated in the poker run that weekend. The two of us had made this deal that if he comes up to Kamloops with his car, then I would bring mine to Langley to display together again in the 8th annual Good Times Cruise-in. We both had an absolute blast at both events and it was great to compare these two cars. We attracted lots of attention when we were driving them around in tandem.
It was actually this website, 1963pontiac.com. that we became aware of each other and started emailing each other.

Owner's Comments

My Pontiac is an American car. The Tempest/Lemans of that year apparently was not available in Canada. Mine originated from Montana, bought by the shop foreman of the Pontiac dealership in Lethbridge, Alberta. In 1976 it fell into my hands.
