It's sad to see another legend die. Please share your stories if you have any about Pontiac cars.

Yes, 1978, the probably the best car I ever owned. I still can't say why I never bought another.

No...I never ever owned a Pontiac but I liked Pontiac........

Pontiac made some nice vehicles years ago................

I liked Pontiac many years ago when Pontiac's had the slogan "Pontiac Builds Excitement"......and they did............

Another Pontiac slogan was "The Heat Is On....On The Street"......

In the later years Pontiac was nothing but a copy of Chevrolet with nothing much to really offer.........nothing exciting at all........

Pontiac lost all it's fire years before they were ever dropped by GM...

Too bad.............

Yes, a Grand Am back in the 1990's. It was a good car with a bad paint job.

I think the last time I looked in a GM dealership they were at the peak of their badge engineering. What I was looking at was the Chevrolet Nova and its clones.

ALL the same under the hood. ALL assembled in the same plant, the Fairfax Kansas City plant. ALL with visible rough welds on the "C" pillar.

I was so turned off by GM's bad products that I never set foot in a GM dealership again to buy a vehicle.
