I pretty much hate GM now! I was looking forward to getting a solstice gxp coupe or maybe a new Trans Am, but that isn't going to happen now!

sign of the times I guess,when I was growing up,(40's to 70's) in Canada,My Old Man taught me that Pontiac was always the next step up from a plain old lunch box Chevy.
And he was right.
The Pontiac engines were better than the Chevy engines,even the tire hold down wing nut was chromed,Chev wasn't.
The body styles were better than Chev,tthere was a Canadian body Style and an American body style and you could see the difference between the cars.
The Poncho was just a cut above a Chevy in Canada.(Remember the Pontiac straight eight with the teardrop backend? Beautiful car!)
I remember when the offshore stuff started coming in (Jap Crap,No Offense,but that's what it was called)
People started buying their cars because they were different and I think that's when the North American builders started to lose the pride they had when they were building the big three.
That's just my take on it and I think that it's a shame that money came before pride in workmanship in my humble opinion.
I'll shut up now!

i totally agree with you. i wonder if the brand could ever be resurrected. its such a shame that GM is in such a pinch - they finally start building cars that can compete with the European and Japanese brands again and then they ax pontiac, saturn and possibly GMC. all of that said, im proud to own one of the last great sedans of ponitac.
