So Pontiac is staying in B-P-G. There was a recent article in LeftLane News that had the future "niche" brand moving into Chevrolet dealerships; I guess that was just typical internet rumor.

Alive and kicking? Yeah, sure. I believe it, uh-huh.

I'm not going to even bother suggesting what cars Pontiac should carry it in the future; it won't matter. All we're going to get is a slew of Chevrolets wearing Porky Pig masks.

Well I hope her words don't ring hollow 4 years down the road. I'll always have a spot in my heart for Pontiac... I'd love a chance to put another one in my garage.

Why keep on hoping, pleading, and praying when our words only fall on deaf ears?

Now I can understand atheism just a little bit better.

Great. That's some real Excitement coming our way.

That sentence doesn't even make sense. Did she mean, "The top reason to purchase a Pontiac is fuel economy"...?

call me chauvenist.

point one. do women (as a whole, not saying their are not hot rod gals out there) GET performance cars like guys do? if so, why is a woman in charge of pontiac? or at least, speaking on its behalf.

point two. oddly enough, the men must be women haters if Saturn and Pontiac are going down. Since both were kinda in charge by women?

There are four types of car ladies...

-Don't know jack $h!... (Toyota buyers because everyone else has one...)

-Know something about vehicles and know the difference between a L4 and a V8... Some might value performance or buying American...

-Have a good knowledge of vehicles and understand hp and torque and value "performance and well styled vehicles"...

-Know as much as any other gear-head or car nut.

I hope Miss Docherty is one of the last two, I assume she is as well. Most ladies fall into the first section I fear. My wife would fall into the second or third. It would drive me nuts being married to a female who is clue-less when it comes to cars. I am glad to hear this but it won't mean anything until 5 year down the road until Pontiac actually has a new products and a "clear plan". I just hope she is right. :unitedstates:

Why does this matter? Does one have to be a gearhead to own a GM? By your rationale, since the majority of female car owners out there don't fall into your second or third category, and it's the public that speaks for the auto-industry, it's any wonder why there are any performance vehicles at all.

BTW, my wife knows the basics of a car. She can add air or change a tire, check the fluids, understand what the gauges are telling her, all basic essentials. The fact that she didn't know how the internal combustion process powers her car doesn't mean anything. I'm pleased she asked me to describe it to her, but it doesn't mean she wants to go and buy a 300 hp sports sedan.

I was just defending females and some of there knowledge on cars is all.
