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

Yes several: '63 wagon, '63 convert, '65 sedan. Canadian Pontiacs were Chevs with fancy trim unlike the larger US models.
Once saw a Pontiac on a Ford chassis; it was a 1942 Pontiac body amateurishly dropped onto the 1938 Ford chassis. They hadn't even bothered to remove the Pontiac's "three on the tree" gearshift lever when they poked the Fords "three on the floor" stick through...lol! Went pretty good though with the flatty V-8!
Oh those "50,s eh!

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.............

1977 Trans Am(403 V-8 Olds motor, 2.41 gears), 1979 Pontiac LeMans station wagon 301 V-8) and now an '09 G6(3.5L V-6). Nothing exceptional about any of them.
