Pontiac says goodbye

In 1968 1 million of these cars left GM’s lot across the United States.  By 2008 only 200,000.  Today the agreement between GM and Pontiac dealers has ended after 84 years.

Pontiac was best known for the Trans Am, GTO, and Catalina 2+2.  These muscle cars drag-raced down country roads and sat in drive-ins but they became most famous in the show Knight Rider.  Everytime David Hasselhoff jumped out that black 1984 Trans Am there was one probably jumping off a dealers lot.  A retired GM executive blames reorganization for Pontiac’s demise.
