A (Small) Glimmer of Hope For Pontiac Loyalists

General Motors recently announced the sales of the Saturn, Hummer, and Saab brands, but said that the Pontiac brand would cease production sometime in 2010.

A local dealer claims that GM retained the rights to Pontiac in order to resurrect the brand once they are out from under the heavy thumb of Obama.

Their first order of business, if this dream comes to fruition, should be to fire the Pontiac executives who decided to replace the Grand Am and Grand Prix models with ugly Eurostyle blandingmobiles (which don't even have real names).
