Brent and Nicole Keryluke were killed on May 5th in a motorcycle accident leaving behind 3-year-old Liam and 6 year-old Arielle.
Brent wanted to keep his 1973 Pontiac Parisienne for his son when he started driving. They're now being cared for by their grandparents. They didnt want to part with the vehicle, but they didn't have a choice.
They ended up taking it to an auction, where it was sold 3 times and donated back every time raising close to $100,000 for the family!

There are still good people out there.
Definitely not one of my favorite cars.
Now, 1967 would be a different matter.
We had a 73 Bonneville coupe. If you like full size cars, it wasn’t a bad looking one. Nice lines overall. Grille wasn’t the greatest design, but the rest was very attractive for a large vehicle especially compared to its contemporary competitors.
Car people answered the call.Good for them.
I stopped riding while my kids were growing up, too dangerous. I ride a little now.
