In 1926 General Motors introduced the United States to the Pontiac Brand of Motor Cars. The brand took its name from Chief Pontiac, an American Indian who led an uprising against the British after the French and Indian War. The Pontiac brand became synonymous with MUSCLE CAR. Smokey and the Bandit gave us the Pontiac Trans Am. Other Muscle Pontiac's included the GTO, Firebird, Fiero, and today the Solstice.
Personally I have owned two Pontiac's in my life, the first was a 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT, that I purchased off the showroom floor. The second is a car that previewed on Donald Trump's "The Apprentice, the 2006 Pontiac Solstice. In fact, after the Apprentice show aired, the next day, I went to Major Cadillac on Main Street in Kansas City, Missouri and ordered one of the Pontiac Solstice, hoping to receive one of the coveted First 1000 in the color sly. A few weeks later I received word that in fact, I would be getting one of the First 1000 Pontiac Solstice. I received the first Pontiac Solstice delivered in Kansas City and as I write this the car is sitting in my driveway looking as good as the day I took delivery.
As I awoke this morning and found the report that GM is pulling the plug on Pontiac, I felt a little sad, but then I realized this is just a continuation of the direction of our country.
The USA was the MUSCLE CAR BRAND of the World. The USA contained the biggest, brightest, and fastest of you name it: houses, cars, minds, people, etc., etc. But now with the CEO Obama the USA is starting to be known as weak, green, dimwitted, and slow to respond. The nationalization of GM and the termination of the Pontiac Brand is apropos for the direction CEO Obama wants to take this country. No more Muscle Cars, but cars that are slow and green, and the name Pontiac does not fit that category.
In the next three years there will be more and more stones and mortar that are peeled and pulled away from the once MUSCLE NATION of the USA, Pontiac is just one of those stones and for me it is sad to see the old Indian Chief die.
