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

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

Yugo man? oh, you poor fellow... actually, no Pontiacs... more or less in order, 1941 and 1938 Plymouths (the first wrecked by a guy in a Pontiac, nw that I think of it), then a couple chevies, the VW in which we honeymooned to prince Edward island, couple of Plymouths (a butterscotch dart, which we wish we had now, one ford (for about six months, then a series of mitsubishi mirages, two 70s VW convertibles, now on seventh Subaru and fourth mini, hence the name... uh, did somebody earlier find this inappropriate and then take it down, or did I fail to file...

Yes, had 2. Favorite - '75 LeMans with 400 & matching 400 turbo tranny -- love the highway. The carb would open up very nicely.
2nd was back-up car/parts: '74 LeMans -- only had 350 engine & lots of rust.
