anytime a brand goes away, i get sad. saturn and hummer aren't as close to my heart as olds and pontiac are, but it still makes me feel bad to see them going away.

It's tough, but they are giving their lives so that the core brands can be better than ever

Yep, same here. My fiance loves her G6 coupe. We'll be picking up a WS6 [hopefully] shortly to replace it.
