The Pontiac Tempest was, simply put a great car. It came out in the early '60s when the auto industry was really getting going. The manufacturers were starting to put big engines in little cars and going really fast. When the auto makers got over the bigger is better craze of the '50s they started to downsize and attempted to become more economical. It worked out fine for awhile but soon people started get bored and thought hey if what would happen if we put all those huge powerplants into all those midsized cars? Guess what, it got really good. The Pontiac Tempest was one of those cars that saw good engines get stuck in its bellies. Soon you had way more power than you needed (if that's possible) and were having way more fun than you really should be allowed to have. The Pontiac Tempest was built primarily though as a simple transportation vehicle but it could really get out of its own way. You could go to school or go to work but still have fun on the weekend. Now having heaped all that praise on the Pontiac Tempest it did have its problems. Some people didn't like the looks as much or maybe it was too small for a bigger family but the biggest problem was the big classic car bugaboo, the bad radio. The classic car radio wasn't anything to write home about and it really put a damper on the drive. So what can you do with your Pontiac Tempest?
