Mr. Severin (Sev) Brulhart moved to Ponoka with his family in 1944 and immediately went into the lucrative automotive business by purchasing the Pontiac-Buick Agency at 51 Street and 51 Avenue from Lux and Boman. As the family business prospered, plans for expansion included this fancy new building in 1951, which later — in partnership with Les Grey would change from Pontiac/Buick to the area’s first Volkswagen dealership in 1955. The very popular entrepreneur retired in 1960 after over 40 years in the automotive business, but he and his wife and family remained in Ponoka for many years and were always very active in sports, music, church work, and community projects Photo courtesy Fort Ostell Museum
