I think Pontiac just attracted the real "gear heads": their engineers always went the extra mile over and above what Chevy did with a given platform, or even the equivalent car.

I wish Pontiac had had a version of the B-body in the mid-'90s, that would have been very interesting. It could have picked up where the Impala SS left off .

2009 G8 GT in MSM: no sunroof, no sport package, no leather... just the standard-equipment "yee haw"!

Mods: K&N air filter, AEM Brute Force short-ram, Solo Mach Balanced + HFCs + resonators, Livernois ECM/TCM tune(s), gorgeous wife mod
Other cars:
1996 Caprice Classic: dark cherry, LT1, B4U
1977 Mercury Cougar XR7: light jade metallic, rare 302/low-option Ontario car

I agree. I would have loved to have seen a Pontiac version of the 94-96 SS platform. Especially a wagon...

God point, let me rephrase... Devil's Pacts.

Now we see what happen when Unions and Gov get in bed... Detroit is Bankrupt.

Speaking about Detroit.

Ok, lets get back to the thread
