well, on the bright side of things, pontiacs will always remain collectable so that gives us incentive to keep our pontiacs clean! also, they're gonna be alot cheaper!

I wonder how this will effect the KBB value of my car?

I wouldn't look for an increase. It did nothing for Oldsmobiles when they went belly up. Bonneville production numbers are high. It not like any of them are a 69 Camaro RS/SS.

Pontiac was 9% of GM and Buick was like 4%. ..? I don't get it.
Pontiac is now focused with some of the best BMW chasers yet.

i always thought that it would be chevy pontiac at the bitter end. cause someone under the age of 70 wants a buick. i mean they are nice cars but come on! this was coming though, they got rid of the f body platform then the bonneville. so ridiculous.

Personally, I wouldn't buy any of Pontiacs current offerings. I love my GXP but the Company as a whole has been off direction for years. They stopped being "individual" and have been playing "follow the leader" for to long. If they would have brought V8'* and RWD back 10 years ago, and went back to making actual sports cars, maybe this wouldnt be happening. Killing the Bonneville and replacing it with a "letter/number designate" import didnt help. We have the best the company had to offer, and they deserted that product line. I have no pity or sorrow for their demise.

Looking at the pontiacs that are currently out on the streets , are more worse quality then the ones in the 90'*....
Still sad seeing these suckers go down hill :(

Long live the Bonneville
