  3. My thoughts and prayers to the Schornack family. I always enjoyed seeing him at Pontiac events as he would talk Pontiac with anyone. I remember him giving my brother his personal cell phone number if he had any questions regarding a GTO he was restoring. Several years later I called Milt while rebuilding my 400 in my 68 GTO and asking about the placement of the water pump plates. Milt walked me through them on the phone. I’ll never forget that…. Rest In Peace Milt….. Mr Pontiac to me!!

  4. Our thoughts and prayers to the Schornack Family. Milt was a great friend to us and we always enjoyed his company. He made us proud when we would see him wearing the black/gray racing shirt we made special for Mr. Royal Pontiac. He will be deeply missed. He was a true Legend.
    Chris, Ron, and Gary

  6. I heard if Milt’s passing yesterday, on 11-24-20. I have tears in my eyes and sorrow in my heart, as I looked forward to seeing him at the 2020 GTOAA Nationals. He is a Pontiac hero, and a wealth of knowledge. He lived a long life and God bless his spirit for ever.

  10. I met Mr. Schornack when I was dating his niece, Gail, in 1974. I think he lived near 16 mile rd. in Mt. Clemens. I remember going to Milan Drag Strip with him and Gail where he raced his Firebird. I remember hanging out in the ‘pits’. His brother, Hillary (Gail’s dad) was a great man.
