FOUND Man submerged in car for 43 years!!!
LENOIR, N.C. — A 43-year old mystery has been solved after divers found the body of Amos Shook in his car at the bottom of Lake Rhodhiss in Caldwell County. Divers using advanced sonar technology were able to locate Shook's 1968 Pontiac Catalina in about 30 feet of water Tuesday. When the car was pulled out of the water, human remains were found inside, along with an ID, that led authorities to determine it was Shook, 44, who had gone missing in February 1972. "We found a wallet and some ID cards were in it. It amazed us how preserved that stuff was," said Caldwell County Sheriff Alan Jones.

Most car makes years ago could be identified by a certain look, a certain design. This year the '68 Pontiac tradition continues with it's wide-track stance and the familiar beaked grille causing instantaneous recognition that this is indeed a Pontiac. The large Pontiacs came in 3 models: The Catalina, Executive, and the Bonneville. Engines available for these large Pontiacs were the 400 cid, 265 hp., 290 hp., 340 hp., or the 428 cid with between 375 - 390 horses. All engines are V8's. Only 7,339 '68 Catalina convertibles were made that year. Whereas the only other Pontiac model to make convertibles was the Bonneville with 7,358 units made. This recently restored Catalina use to be the owner's college transportation and a lot of time, funds and sweat was taken to bring this back to factory. So check it out and see if you can keep from falling for this Pontiac baby. Thanks very much for viewing this 1968 Pontiac Catalina convertible.

THis is our 1968 Pontiac Catalina. It has not been started or moved in about a year, since something broke in the transmission. We decided to fire it up, so we could sell it.
