It would probably be a small truck, and the *-10 and sonoma'* are failures. The Aztec is ugly IMO, but the Vibe is pretty sweet.

it would turn out, something like VW making their pickup. That totally sucked. I won't even reconize aztec'* as Pontiacs.. Vibe is ok, but i'd own one if it was 3800 powered, and supercharging was an option

I think the Vibe GT has a optional Supercharger option, runs 0-60'* in the 7 seconds range

I don't really like to Vibe, too much influence from Toyota. I think GMC does pretty good with the trucks. They got the style and power.
