GM to Scrap Pontiac

GM announced today they plan to scrap the Pontiac line. It will become extinct as many before them.

I own one that has been one of the best vehicles I’ve ever had. It’s a ’97 Pontiac Grand Am coupe with the four cyclinder in it. Very economical and peppy too. My Dad owned a couple along the way. I remember one from the late 1950’s, but can’t remember the year. Think it was a 1959 model year.

    They were sure popular, at least at one time. Thanks for reading.

    There’s a lot of history wrapped up in Pontiac. Whenever i see a picture of an early model Pontiac, for some reason, i have visions of driving along the interstates with no particular destination in mind.
