    "Pontiac Conversion is Needed"

    While Pontiac will be shut down, at least three of its vehicles should switch badges and become Chevy's. These are the Solstice, Vibe and G8. There are no models currently like these in the North American divisions with the exception of Saturn. Also, Vibe is one of the handful of GM vehicles with a predicted reliability rating of better or much better than average. Truth be told the Vibe platform, which is the same as the Toyota Corolla/Matrix, should also be used as the platform for the Chevy Cruze and HHR. I have seen the Cruze and read a model preview. It will not equal the competition which includes the Corolla/Matrix, Civic, and Vibe.

    "Thrre duces and a 4 speed and a 389"

    God it was great! Crusin' down Francis Lewis Blvd. in Queens,NYC in Danny's 64 GTO. Man we were some hot stuff and the thrill of the Tri-Carb engine at every stop light was magic. Now our youth has little but Toyotas and Hondas that are so bland it defines an ambiguous lost generation. The end of Pontiac,to me, a boomer, is like losing a friend. I doubt the bean counters could ever know what it was all about when the Muscle Car, Drive in Burger hangouts, and cool guys were all simple clean fun. We've lost more than just Pontiac. Shame is nobody really cares much anymore. Well, I still have the memories, sniffle, sniffle!

    "The Chinese will buy it!"

    Just think about it... Chevy is selling a bunch of Korean cars already; even more in the future and the Chinese could be selling their geely crap through Pontiac. The dealers and all the loyal consumers down South would eat this up.

    "Remember The Great USA"

    GM-Pontiac made great cars, now we give all the jobs and big prifits to China and other country's. What is wrong with us? It's all corporate greed. They don't think about their children or grand kids.
