    GM is cutting the entire line, per CNN.com.

    My first car was a 1986 Pontiac Firebird.

    I want another one, to this day.

    The G8 is one fine looking automobile. I would by one if I could afford it. Very nice car.

    Of course you can get yourself a MUSTANG GT, for a bit less.

    Does that make my '04 Grand Am an antique? I've been openly listening to buyers on that thing for least 6 months.

    It is sad. I hope Saturn can somehow survive.

    I think it was Saturn, maybe it is Nissan though, that has a car coming out that runs on a cleaner burning diesel fuel. A reporter from Detroit drove it all the way to Atlanta on one tank of fuel. I guess the longer you drive without stopping, the better mileage you get making it very affordable. Hopefully what ever company is making that stays in business. I want a car that can do that.

    Sweet. My G6 will be a collector's item.

    My 2000 Sunfire has been nothing short of a magnificent car. So maybe not so much on the 15 years ago side.

    GM has too many rebadged makes and models. The GMC trucks and the Chevy Silverados are identical except for a few differences in moulding, etc., for example. The Pontiac Sunfire (a/k/a the Bitch Wagon) and the Chevy Cavalier are the same car.

    Of course, Ford / Mercury / Lincoln and Chrysler / Dodge / (RIP) Plymouth have always had the same model duplication, to a lesser extent.

    Informative update:


    The story indicates Pontiac was the third best selling brand. Original plans were to shrink it to a few cars, IMO which they should have done. Shrink the other brands and retool the factories so you can make any car at any factory - much like Ford has done.

    This way, they close the factories, but they lose the breadth of their sales. I feel like they are shooting themselves in the foot. They need to shrink the entire fleet, not kill one of their best brands.
