GM Ditches Pontiac

Pontiac, a brand whose products fired the imagination of enthusiasts of traditional American muscle cars, such as the GTO I used in my piece Blowout, has come to an end. General Motors said Monday it will discontinue the brand as part of its consolidation effort.  The Pontiac GTO is considered by many the first true muscle car. Other illustrious Pontiac models of yore included Bonneville, LeMans, and Firebird.
