Photo of a 1971 Pontiac Catalina 4 door (Pontiac Party Boat)

No longer owned


Beauty, huh?
I drove this during my final couple years in college from '84 through '87, putting a couple major beauty marks on it along the way. It was a perfect college car. "Pontiac Parties" became infamous during summers in my hometown, which was basically just piling 6 or 7 kids into the Catalina for a night of good times. (this was back in the 80's when the cops let kids do that!)
The photo was taken at Indiana University when me and 5 frat buddies took a road trip from Kansas City for a "Leadership Conference".


400 motor, very roomy, capable of hauling 13 drunk college kids with a keg in the trunk and pulling a canoe trailer with 6 canoes. Yes, we actually did that!
