Regardless, killing off tradition is not a classy move by GM

Its not the first, nor the last tradition they will off. Pretty soon we will be driving Pontiac GL422i'*. i did some thinking about this the other night and I'm wondering if it doesn't have to do with internationalization of product. Mabye Bonneille, or Sunfire, or Oldsmobile doesnt translate well into Chinese, or Russion, or Galic. Maybe Oldsmobile means runny diaper in Mandarin. With Numbers and Letters the likelyhood that a foreign language faux pau will happen is slim to none.

F*ck GM on this one! Olds is oldest marque in cars.
H*ll they were the first to make an actual CAR, everyone else was still retrofitting carriages when the Curved Dash Olds debuted.
