A Decidedly Sporting Nature In 1984
In March of 1984 Motor Works began serving DeKalb and Northern Illinois. It took very little time for Pontiac cars to become a significant part of our repair traffic. Daily we would see cars like the Phoenix, Catalina, Bonneville, Grand Prix, Grand Am, Firebird, LeMans, and my favorite, the GTO. These cars had a decidedly sporting nature that ran from mild to “full tilt gonzo”. They made it fun to come to work!

It’s Still Fun To Come To Work
The last Pontiacs rolled off the assembly line in 2010. Sadly, GM closed the Division down. But even today, they seem to find their way to Motor Works in droves. This makes us happy, because working on these cars is still fun!

And Challenging
Pontiacs are packed with advanced GM technology. This includes dozens of computers, antilock brakes, automatic climate control, and sophisticated high performance engines. Constant training is the only way to keep up. We have a huge investment in factory tools, and computer scanners. Our staff includes three ASE Master Certified Specialists. Motor Works is determined to be the Dealership Alternative!

From The Smallest Service To The Biggest Repair
We offer everything from light bulbs to transmission overhauls, “check engine lights” to motor replacements. We are comfortable with all the manufacturer’s models and strive to deliver the service you deserve.

Pontiac owners in DeKalb and Northern Illinois choose Motor Works because of our reputation for excellence, we hope you’ll choose us too.

Schedule Today!
If you would like to bring your Pontiac in for repair or service please schedule an appointment online or call us at 815-756-2882 to speak with our friendly staff.

My Baby GTO
I’ve adored the GTO as long as I can remember appreciating cars. In 1971 a well-kept Pontiac LeMans came into my excited possession. For those in the know, the GTO is a “hot-rodded” LeMans. Oh did I have dreams of building a superfast “sleeper” LeMans! This car would look “plain Jane” and blow the doors off Corvettes.

Alas, life intervened. School expenses dictated that my “Baby GTO” stay a stock daily driver. I never did make good on that dream. However, every time I walk past a ‘71 GTO at a car show, I begin to drool uncontrollably. Normally, this would embarrass me to no end. However, I’ve noticed all the other guys are drooling too. I figure I am in very good company.
