Tim Dye to present history of Pontiac cars

Posted in What's new on the Pontiac scene on June 3, 2011 by pontiacoaklandclub

Tim Dye, the designated director of the new Pontiac-Oakland Automobile Museum and Resource Center in Pontiac, Illinois, has announced his plan to present a free presentation on the entire history of the Pontiac automobile brand. The historical look back on the General Motors’ line of cars will be held at the Chautauqua Park Pavilion on July 21 at 7:00 PM. Prior to the presentation, there will be a picnic open to the public at the park. The Livingston County Humane Society will be serving pulled pork sandwiches as the main course and tickets for the meal are set at $10.00 per person.

Dye’s presentation will cover the history of the Pontiac brand from its creation in 1893 to its demise in 2010. From the earliest Pontiac buggies, to the last Pontiac G6 which rolled off the assembly line in 2009, the Pontiac brand has a rich history and served as a leader in the American automobile industry for many years. Dye will detail the most interesting parts of the brand’s history and will show slides of some of the most famous cars in the Pontiac lineup.

Tim and Penny Dye have begun the process of moving their extensive collection of cars, Pontiac memorabilia, and other items from their previous home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to the site of their new showroom in Pontiac, Illinois. The Dyes will be living in Pontiac and will both work to promote and grow the new museum. Along with the car collection, Dye has one of the largest collections of oil cans and a complete turn-of-the-century print shop which he hopes to display in Pontiac. The new museum, located at 205 North Mill Street, joins the Illinois Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum, the International Walldog Mural and Sign Art Museum, and the Livingston County War Museum already located in the downtown Pontiac business district.
