Not sure if it's Renault who stole the idea. This model was back in 1996 I think. The GA you're thinking about is 1999. :blink:

[b](nose in air)

NO. The center divider is angled wrong. It should be wider at the top, not the bottom. But then the French eff everything up, except for kissing.[/b]

I'm stil disappointed in France, I thought they had better taste than that. I was really surprised when I saw they had ripped off something as low-class as a Pontiac.

Incorrect. Much closer is Oldsmobile.

Didn't some if not all Oaklands ......... the division that brought Pontiac to market have a slpit grille? In any event, I'll not loose sleep over who did it first

I think some recent Mitsubishis (Galant?) had a Pontiac-ish nose. Of course, the best Pontiac front ends IMHO didn't have just a split or 2 piece grille grille but also were pointy or bulging in the center...
