Default Pontiac Gone?

Yep... Can't believe it. I heard rumors today at work and then the daily news articles here have confirmed it. GM is killing off Pontiac.

It seems like a void just opened up in my heart because I own a torch red Grand Prix GT(wanted to get a G8 GXP) and I love the thing. I remember my dad wanting to go nuts crazy and buy a brand new Trans-Am WS6 a few years back. It's almost as though when Chevy said they we're going to stop making the Camaro for good(back in '07-08?), it just hit my like "why the hell?".

I'm just lost for words here... Just thought I'd share my sadness.

I've always been a pontiac guy before all else although it's been 5 years since i totalled my last one. The news was heart breaking to me when i first heard a couple of weeks ago that they was considering killing the line, and there are still so many I want.
WS6 2002
GTO
Soltice
Fiero

I guess if people like me ewho can't afford new cars are the main fans then it was been to end

Yep... Just like Pontiac in general. The G8 would have saved them... 3-4 years ago.

I'm not too keen on the Fiero's and which years were a deathtrap and which were good, but I saw a golden orange one the other day, perfect condition and had a nice low growl to it and boy... I wanted to steal it from the old Asian woman driving it... Lol.
