R.I.P. pontiac. Partly, but it's supposed to stay as a niche marquee. Until they change their minds.

This is starting to look like 1973 did. They are going to be giving these cars away in a few years, and in 20 years or so they will be very valued collectors items.

You are exactly correct. We saw this exact cycle in the 70s-80s. Just look at the horrible cars of the 80s! I blogged about this yesterday. (Link (http://sportscarnet.com/blog/2009/02/gm-high-performance-division-is-latest-victum-of-slumping-economy/))

Damn, it must suck giving the auto companies cars that eat up ferrari's and set record times around the nurburgring, then get laid off.
