So long, Pontiac, so long……..

Posted by Rob Longenecker on April 24th, 2009

When I was young, Pontiac meant exciting automobiles, notably the Bonneville, the GTO, the Firebird. They were in demand. Not so much lately.

Any plans to return Pontiac to the heavy-horsepower days of the ’70s ended as gas prices rose and Congress prepared stricter fuel economy rules for the industry.

General Motors, struggling too stay afloat, will announce the end of the Pontiac brand.

Pontiac’s current role in GM seems mostly to be to support GMC and Buick by providing a brand under which Pontiac-Buick-GMC dealers could sell non-luxury cars, filling out what then becomes a full-line showroom.

An official announcement is expected Monday, April 26th, 2009.

It’s a reminder to appreciate what we have while we have it.

So long, Pontiac, so long.
