    GTO's have already been gone, they were supposed to consolidate the line but since the bankruptcy they are calling it quits.
    Saab, Saturn, Hummer and GMC are next on the chopping block as well however Saab is supposed to become an independent company again.

        I find sad that these division could remain intact through the Great Depression but are being chopped away these days. I've never been a big Pontiac fan even though my dad is a Pontiac guy.

              The Big Three had no major foreign competition for many, many decades.
              In the early days, from, say 1900-1939, they went through labour strife, World War I, the Great Depression, then geared up once again for war production.
              No real competition.
              Post WWII, the glory days of the Big Three, most foreign competition lay in ruins, thanks to Allied bombers.
              It took years, decades, for foreign car companies to rebuild, design cars, then improve.
              There is where the Big Three lost their vision.
              They assumed customers would be customers for life, as it was when there was no alternative.
              The 1970s did them in.Poor quality, as well as the oil shortage drove many to less expensive, fairly reliable foreign cars.
              Apparently no one in the Big Three had the foresight to realise once destroyed auto companies would rebuild, look at North American production and labour ideas and improve on them.
              If you look at it, German and Japanese cars were the catalyst.
              A lot of people still think North American cars are shoddy.
              The Big Three have never been able to shed that image, as incorrect as it is.
              I don't quite remember what my point was.
              The General Motors I loved is dead and gone (still want a ZR1, CTS-V, Camaro).
              Chrysler is a shell of its former self (Challenger, Viper).
              Ford doesn't appeal to me anymore (except Mustang and Ford GT)
              DON'T pimp my ride!!!
