That backs up our source, but our source states a much more agressive timeline. 3 years instead of 5 as that article states.

Pfft! It really doesn't bother me they're going RWD, for the most part the only pontiacs I actually liked hit the chopping block anyhow,

As Pontiac shifts to RWD, I wonder with the others follow? or is it just cause Ponti'* the sapposed "Performance Division"

after the TA and Bonne'* dissaperance, I'm thinking Buick or Chevy'* my next move (as far as brand new) Lucerne and La Crosse seem to be doing well, HHR, Impala,and Monte Carlo'* are hits as well.

Solstice, G6, Torrent are selling units as well, But why does it seem Pontiac lost more models than any other division?

Montana= more or less converted to that other van
Aztek= replaced by Torrent
Trans Am= GTO fills that slot very well
Bonneville=Pfft, nothing as yet
Sunfire=who really gives a damn? perhaps that new car whatever it'* called
Grand Am=G6 much needed replacement IMO

I guess It isn't too bad when most got replaced/redesigned and renamed

Buick lost Park Avenue,Century,Le Sabre,and Regal

Chevy what did they lose actaully? just gained a few didn't they?

Cadillac only lost Cateria (SP) awhile back, only sucky car that they ever made I guess. U can't give those things away

Is Pontiac turning into Audi? Just replace the G with an A and BAM, you've got an Audi. I don't know, I like cars that are actually named something. But that'* just me.

I think Pontiac is an everyday car with a sporty appeal. Even thought they have the same motors as Chevy, they get to say they're going faster. Please don't take my comments out of place, I'm talking about Pontiac as it is now. G6 has the same engines as Malibu, Grand Prix has same motors as Impala/Monte Carlo, Pursuit vs. Coblalt. You get the point. Pontiac is on the same level with Chevy, with Buick/Saab above, and Cadillac on top. Saturn is on the bottom. GMC trucks are slightly above Chevy'*, as they've always been and always will be.
