Been lifeless ever since the announcement.

Silver bullet, stake through the heart, etc. today, in honor of Halloween.

I got a letter a few weeks ago, the little country town dealer that sold me my 09 GMC was no longer a GMC dealer. Also no longer a Pontiac dealer, Chevy dealer, etc.

Two others within a shorter drive are no longer either.

Sign of the times.

Never really liked Pontiacs but they were a US brand, so I will miss them. Proud to say I have never driven import junk.

SAME HERE....And that is why we are seeing this happen....What's worse is seeing people drive around in hondas and toyotas with American flags in their windows.......Please don't get me started with the "they're being built in America crap" I was raised better than that........:bowtier:

What is built in America anyway? My 1987 IROC Camaro had been built in Canada, 23 years ago.

In the 60s in Australia Pontiacs were sourced from Canada and assembled here by General Motors Holdens. They were basically Chevy based, but quite popular here. We had models such as Laurentians and Parisiennes as well as GTOs.
Then this decade our Monaros were rebadged in the US as GTOs. So it's sad to see Pontiac go as we had quite a connection!

The way I see it is how can you send hours restoring 1 thing and drive another. I have owned 1 Mustang other than that it been all GM. Primarily Chevy & Olds.
