They have been liquidating a lot of their Pontiac stuff lately. They are into guns big time-like machine guns! Jim

Any idea how Bill died?

KNAFEL PONTIAC's Arlen Vanke (builder & driver) & Bill Abraham (builder, deceased in 1967),

My dad grew up with Vanke and Abraham. My pops said Abe died in a rental car in Indy. He was going a little to fast and hit a guard rail. The guard rail ended up inside the car and cut him in half. My pops was at his wake over on North Main in 67.

A worthy bump. May 1972.

Any of these late 60's/early '70's Knafel cars still around?

The GTO was supposedly crashed by a teenager in 71 and totaled

It was ordered just like the Stephen Pontiac 68 lightweight seam seal sound deadener delete (steohens paid extra for a guy to walk w the cars to make sure they didn’t get anything but needed that would add weight) . , radio and heater delete probably through Tim nell I know that’s who stephens worked with they discuss it (working w Tom ) in the 71 rodder and super stock article. . I talk w bill Eckstrom and Tom Mc innis of stephens a bit because I grew up near the dealership they haven’t talked since about 73 so I can cross stories between them to make sure it’s not blurred memories. Lol it’s been a long time and there were quite a few cars. It’s interesting how the listing for this 68 sounds so much like the Stephens’s car, and the 68 69 race birds I’ve looked into are so similar as well, clearly were being told how to order these cars
My bird was similar but had to have the heater for defrost by law in 69.

Most of the info I got was in the early 90s from these guys it’s a little harder for them to remember now but I wrote it all down as I learned it back then .
