If you actually read the article...

It states that all of GM's remaining Pontiac franchise agreements expire today, October 31.

So that means that Pontiac is officially out of business, effective today.

This is sad, very sad. GTO opened a lot of doors. Show some respect. Just sayin'. No need for the hate.

Before I bought my Camaro I actually walked into a Pontiac dealership and told them I was putting down this much on a NEW Camaro make a me a DEAL and I could drive off in a NEW G8

I heard Crickets I drove to Classic and im Happy


However I would still love to have a G8 as maybe a daily driver or future Family car.

They keep closing down parts I've owned cars from!

I wonder what would have happened if I got a Cobalt instead of a G5.
