Way to go Suits. Gm has decided to discontinue the Pontiac line in order to try and stay viable in the Market.

Pontiac is no more. Please remember the great little Ponchos of yester year, you will truly be missed.

Didn't Chrysler shut down their Plymouth division a few years back as well? :sad:

This appears as though it's being kept on the down low as it's not mentioned on many news sites. From what I read though, it won't completely take place until 2011.

Mac, I'm a little upset you failed to mention this little bad boy :cool:

No theyre just getting rid of the PT cruiser or as we call it here in car dealership land, the POS Cruiser. I work for a dealership and I think the car companies did it to themselves, I mean 47,000 for a new truck!? WTF!!

Pontiac blows too, they should've stopped after they made the GTO back in day cause that was the only vehicle worth buying from them. By the way I work at a HUGE GM/Chrylser dealership so I know a thing or two about the quality (or lack of) of these vehicles.

I had a Pontiac Grand Am in the early 90's that was a total piece of crap. But I think they all were back then...

The GTO's were hot--I used to work for a guy that had one that he drove to work on Fridays. He'd always let me take it to go get our lunch--fun fun fun car to drive!

A few years ago I went to a car show and saw a beautiful line older GTOs. I should have taken some pictures of them

I had an '87 Sunbird that was a lot of fun. I really don't care if they discontinue the Pontiac line though. I haven't been impressed with the Pontiac's in quite a while.

:unsure-1: whats a pontiac :huh:

I cant drive, and even if I could, by the looks of the pictures posted in this thread, I'd NEVER be able to afford one of them.

If I ever learn to Drive...I'll need a reallllllllllllllllly cheap thing to drive...like a VW Polo or something :laugh:
