Default Pontiac Tribute Day *June 1 , 2010*

IDK if someone on here has already posted this but I got this from my friend Brock on the Monte Carlo Forum. It'* really sad ='(

http://www.pontiactributeday.com/

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”.

We are encouraging everyone to help celebrate this event by organizing Cruise Nights or Car Shows on June 1, 2010 in honor of this event. Please email us your organized events and they will be added to this website. Please include Event Name, Location (city & state) and time of event. You can e-mail the information to [email protected]

To help show your support you can purchase a graphic decal for any Pontiac model. Proudly display this 37" x 3" white decal in your rear window to commemorate the occasion.

While I was on assignment in a Hartford school the other day, a discussion between two ESL teachers and I about Web browsing somehow turned into me talking about my Bonneville. They seemed impressed when I mentioned the mileage and how good it still was.

This makes me wonder what make of car the majority of us (especially us 92-99ers) will have in ten years. Maybe Monte Carlos, who knows?
