I had a Pontiac in the late 80's, a Sunbird. It was the first new car I ever bought. Up to that time, it was strictly used cars. I liked the Sunbird, but not enough to buy another one, even though it was a solid and dependable car.

I usually don't get attached to my cars, except for a Ford Escort I had. We won't go in to the reason here.

As you've heard by now, General Motors is dumping the Pontiac line as the company struggles to stay afloat. I'm sorry for those who will lose their jobs.

This is another one of those business related "chicken and egg" arguments. People didn't like Pontiacs, so they didn't buy them. On the other hand, people didn't like Pontiacs because General Motors failed to show much imagination and innovation with that line.

Get used to it. It appears other automobile brands will follow Pontiac to the scrap heap.

We live in a different world.
