    i still dont know WHY THE F**K GM didn't pull the plug on Buick? i mean come on? How many buicks do they sell? hardly NONE compared to Pontiac. This is the stupidest move i have ever seen. GM does'nt even deserve to stay afloat. I say pull all the bailout money out and let them sink. they are IDIOTS! I guess the greedy corrupted A-holes are still only thinking of money... "Hey, buicks cost more... so if we sell one... we get more money then if we sell a pontiac" They are so stupid as to realize what poor sales they have now are about to be GONE. They dont sell any chevys hardly... except a few trucks and maybe a malibu and impala or two.. They sell more G6s G8s and even G5's then the all the chevys put together... DUMB MOVE GM

    Yep. I see GM dying a slow, painful death. I see lots of GM faithful going to the blue oval.

    I saw on the news that the government is going to dictate to GM which dealerships have to be closed...and it's going to be a lot of them.

    I guess as i have gotten older some things change,progress they say,well I dont give a damn,they dont make them anymore,seems anytime i drive my car someone has something nice to say about it,MUSCLE cars will never go away,yes they change from year to year,gear heads like us will never settle for anything less.personally I didnt like many of the OLD GTOs.JMO...
    bottom line if they stop making Pontiac,its not the end of the world,I have my car,only new car I have ever bought,love the style,the comfort and the performance.1 of 64 !

    buick actually outsells damn near everything in China. they do well in europe as well. pontiac's territory is gone; there isn't any reaon for a chevy brand full of SS models to compete with a pontiac lineup of 'performance' cars. back w/ the firebird and camaro, the firebird was the luxury car of the two. now, just to make it, the camaro has to go luxury so there just isn't any way to make a different car - trust me, i'd rather see the firebird dead forever than have one that wasn't as nice as a camaro of the same yr model.

    Thats because people want everything in one package and the amount of people that want a stripper model is very very very small probably less then 1%, most of us, so they have to turn out one car with all the bells and whistles to make a profit. Its stupid..... I want a new camaro with hand crank windows cloth interior and so on and so forth. That wont happen now.
