Saying goodbye to another America Auto Icon

Postby March Hare » Tue Apr 28, 2009 2:29 pm

General Motors announced earlier this week that they will be closing it's PONTIAC division for good.

Going the same way as GM's Oldsmobile , and Chrysler's Plymouth

GONE... never to return

Back in the day, I had a 1966 Bonneville with a 389

I have a '99 Trans-Am that I bought brand new off the lot March 8, 2000. A couple of years ago I had the engine and transmission loaded to make 500 HP. I put new, tighter suspension all the way around with brakes, wheels, rear axle, the whole caboodle. Now it sits in my driveway as I ride my bike all the time. Maybe it will be worth more now that Pontiac has decided to close shop. Last of the V-8's.... maybe not, but def last of the Firebirds!

it is sad for australia as well seeing as pontiacs are made here in SA and shipped to america..loss of jobs..most of the problem is that theres 6.5 billion people in the world and 7 billion cars
