Thread Name: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
Subject: RE: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
I kinda liked Pontiac. I worked for their ad agency in Los Angeles while I was in college [this during the period covered by Mad Men TV show]. My first car after college was a burgundy Tempest, for which I had a burgundy cardigan. When I gave the car to my sister, I kept the sweater.

My wife had a '96 Grand Am. It wasn't a car for her. Stiff ride and poor city mileage. But when I drove the car at freeway speeds over long distances it was a joy to drive...and it got almost 30mpg.

I was sorry when she decided to get a different car; I would have kept it, but it wasn't suitable to my job.
