The economy sucks, our nation is morally bankrupt, and somewhere out there young “men” are still wearing skinny jeans. At least I can take comfort in knowing by the time I have kids, they may never have to see a Pontiac actually on the road.
I rant about such boring, gutless cars being named after races. Now I’m also convinced that for the last 25 years of existence, Pontiac also made the most consistently ugly cars on the road (Firebird excepted). I don’t know if that’s actually the case, or if it’s the horrific state of repair it seems half the owners keep their vehicles in.
The upside to these cars being stereotypically neglected is that sooner or later they’ll go away, and it may happen sooner. Just like you never see a Gremlin or Pacer out on the road, the eyesores Pontiac produced will gone. The automotive world is going to get prettier. GM continues to make exceptionally beige looking vehicles, but at least they’re not ugly.
Can you tell I was stuck behind a Grand Am on my drive to work today?
