Pontiac Tribute Day - June 1, 2010


Recommended Posts


In the wake of General Motors’ plans to discontinue the Pontiac marquee, which started in 1926 and which will end in 2010. A group of Pontiac Fiero enthusiasts based in Northern Illinois with members across the globe have organized a day to honor the brand that is best known for building excitement!

Tuesday, June 1, 2010 was chosen because May 31, 2010 is the last day the dealerships can sell and advertise a Pontiac as a Pontiac dealership. By midnight on the May 31, 2010 Pontiac Motor Division officially ceases to exist.

Jim Hallman, President of the Northern Illinois Fiero Enthusiasts says, “Drive your Pontiac to work, a car show, or to the golf course, it does not matter where, just enjoy it on this day”. He added, “We want Pontiac owners to relive the excitement that General Motors has supported since the inception of the Pontiac brand. This is our way of saying thanks to GM”.

I'm getting a Pontiac hat and will be sure to wear red that day. It's not much, but the best I can do without the funds to buy a Pontiac. :firebird:

I have many friends in the NIFE group and see many names on the list I know.

I am glad they are doing it this way an not making some crazy protest out of this. It shows some class.

But this is not the first ending Pontiac Fiero owners have been through.

I wonder if I registered under John Delorean with a 64 GTO anyone would notice. lol!

While not as exciting as driving a '68 LeMans or another classic Poncho, I did take the wife's '08 G6 V6 Sedan yesterday for my work commute. I will miss the opportunity to buy a new Pontiac when the time comes. I'll never forget the Pontiacs from my youth (late '70s/early '80s), the new models I desired in my teenage and young adult years, and the ones I got to drive off the lot ('95 Trans Am <used>, '99 Grand Am GT, '00 Grand Prix GT, '08 G6) or helped others buy for themselves. RIP Pontiac (1926-2009) :closedeyes:

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
