    From the rumor mill long ago, my brother told me that the pontiac division was try to rebrand its self to go after the up scale performance crowd like BMW and Mec. true or not I've always seen pontia to be the Upper end of the GM car line and would like to see it stay that way.

    I remember reading some where that the demise of the US auto makers started back in the 80s, when like as decribed here, specially where GM is concerned, all they did was change a few bits and badges and you could the same car in all the differnat brands. there was no real identity.

    My question to you is do you REALLY think the Pontiac division would do better by reintroducing the bird again (if they weren't going under)? I want to say yes but I'm bias for obvious reasons.

    yes, if they don't waste 5 years like the camaro did, and just build it and launch it. I'm so sick of camaro pix i don't want one. Luckily i saw one last week in a show and it looks way better in person.

    In Sweden ( and Europe) Pontiac has always held a higher status compare to Chevrolet.
    Better interior, nicer design overall a more luxury car.(I fully agree)
    In the beginning, GM was selling Pontiac in Europe. You could go to a dealer and sign up for a brand new Trans Am GTA, then sometime in the middle of the 90 decision was made to only sell Chevrolet. So out with Firebird and in with Camaro’s. That was a really bad decision. In a way Pontiac was compared to bmw - Also the word was that Pontiac was the performance division within GM USA.

    gm has a recent history of bad decisions,causing the situation they are in financially,i have 2 gm products and don't want to see gm disappear but they did this to themselves.back in the late 90's when they were selling suvs as fast as they could build them they should have invested in better cars.they instead just paid lip service to their car lines and let honda,toyota,and hyundai get ahead,and now when the suvs are cold and people are buying cars gm's offerings just don't matchup with the imports.not to mention the PERCEIVED better quality of the imports.
