Real-World Commodore pics

Recommended Posts

Thanks for confirming what I've been whining and crying about in the Commodore/Pontiac thread, Northstar. Like always, the newest Holden looks like a mimic of a generic US GM car from 10 years ago. There is no denying the excellent chassis and interior, but the visuals just aren't there, especially for a US brand that has been identified with visual excitement since, oh... 1959. Take the ridiculous wing off the back and what do you have? It's like seeing a business man in a suit, tie, and sneakers.

I'm 100% with ocn here. Assuming it gets a new nose & tail on the exterior and little else, it's the '04 GTO all over again. Great mechanicals alone are not going to make a hot seller; it needs passion. The basic design is just not progressive enough for an aspirational Pontiac, ala the Solstice.

Ocn- it may be that those who only know Pontiac from the '90s due to young age can't see Pontiac in context....
