"Pontiac is Dead," Reports Edmunds' Inside Line
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — April 24, 2009 — Pontiac, General Motors' one-time "Excitement" division and creator of legends such as the GTO and Firebird, will receive its death sentence on Monday, according to http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f16697b/5224, a visitor with the screen name "lilengineerboy" suggests, "If there is such a positive legacy attached to some of the makes, retain the names as trim levels. Chevy can have the Super Sport, and Cadillac or Buick can have a "Pontiac Edition" with more aggressive suspension tuning and red dials instead of 60s blue-green."
