So just a few days ago, I wrote about the poor Pontiac G5. Now we’ve found out that GM plans to axe the Pontiac brand. So yes, I’m totally taking credit for that.
Obviously the GM leadership read my piece and thought better of continuing the Pontiac line. The only unfortunate part is that apparently the G8 GXP is a good car. They finally built something good, but it’s too late.
The story of the fall of the US auto industry is ultimately going to be a languishing thing for later generations to read about. The fact that it drug on for so long as a limping, wounded version of its former self will likely shock them.
In the meantime, I’m going to basque in the glory of being a tremendously influential blogger who can kill off a multi-national brand.
