Looking for a 1930 Pontiac –Napier Connection –Ken Brisco




Hi Linda

I am trying to find out the history of a 1930 Pontiac car that was owned by Ken Briscoe of Carleton Place from the early 1960’s to 2001. This car may have a Looking for Napier’s connection.
My grandfather Daniel Napier had a 1930 Pontiac that was sold sometime around 1961 when he sold his farm. When I was a kid back in the 60’s we would drive by Ken Briscoe’s place on the Townline road in Carleton Place and Kens Pontiac used to sit out on the street and I remember my father saying that used to be his dad’s car.
It was a black four door car with wood spoke wheels. I was told this car had been in several parades over the years in Carleton Place and pictures of it were in the Carleton Place Canadian. Would you have any access to these pictures, or perhaps steer me towards someone that does.
