Seriously, GM? WTF?

GM to pull the plug on Pontiac

While this hasn't been confirmed by a public announcement by GM it does appear that Pontiac is as good as dead. This news just makes me a bit sad. My last 2 cars have been Pontiacs.

My 2001 Grand Prix GT...



My 2004 Grand Prix GT... we affectionately refer to it as the Batmobile...



I loved these two cars and my dream cars list has always included Pontiacs...

1978 Trans Am... yep that's the same car the Burt Reynolds drove in the movie Smokey and the Bandit...



The 1969 GTO Judge... the GTO started the muscle car craze in the 1960's and the Judge was KING!



The 1998-2002 Trans Am WS6... I drove one of these once... OMFG! The amount of horse power and torque that they crammed under the hood was enough to scare the shit out of most unsuspecting drivers...



I had the opportunity a couple of years ago to test drive a bright yellow 2005 GTO, and say what you want about how the rebirthed GTO looked... you couldn't argue with the raw power under the hood. I scared the shit out of the salesman who went with me... I pushed it hard going down route 531 in Spencerport and I topped out at 109 mph... what a blast to drive!
