Maybe I'm still in a state of denial, but I just don't see this happening as abruptly as everyone fears. Even if the announcement comes out Monday, I suspect this will be a gradual process over the next 1 to 3 years, just like with Oldsmobile. They simply will eliminate each model (or transfer it to a different division perhaps) one at a time until there is no more. They can't just shut everything down over night. I feel like I will still be able to buy a new 2010 G8 GXP next spring even if Pontiac is killed off. As long as I can get my Pontiac G8 GXP 6M, I will be fine for the next 7 to 10 years. The trauma for me will come the next time I need to buy a new car and can't turn to Pontiac as an option first. That will hurt. I am a diehard Pontiac fan, and always will be. My family have owned well over 50 Pontiacs since the '50s (my parents, siblings, and myself currently have 9 in our "stables"), and they have always served us well. I hope these reports are only rumors, and that Pontiac will at least maintain it's niche status. If not, I will always blame their death on Obama and his board of idiots!
