Stephen Fowler always wanted a classic car from the 1950s or 1960s. That's what attracted him to the Pontiac Tempest.
"The Pontiac Tempest stands out from the crowd; the car is different than most cars you see. Everyone has Camaros, Chevelles or Mustangs," Fowler says.
The classic came from Bagdad - Bagdad, Ky., that is.
The Boyle County native enjoys the looks that he gets when he tells people where he got the car.
It's not a Pontiac Grand Turismo Omologato or GTO, but a clone, called a Tempest Custom built in 1967. The Tempest also is made by Pontiac.
Fowler bought the car in 2003, after it had been sitting in a barn for 10 years. The car still was running, but he did have to rebuild the engine soon after he purchased it.
