Zi trista pentru Pontiac

28 04 2009

Daca ar fi produs doar Firebird, ar fi fost suficiente motive sa regret disparitia marcii Pontiac. In copilarie am desenat zeci de pagini cu ideea mea de Firebird. Au facut insa mai multe modele de tinut minte in istoria de 83 de ani. Nu au capitalizat suficient traditia si au cazut victima deciziilor nefericite ale GM si contextului economic fragil.

“After 83 years of storied history and with a huge following for its famous older models, Pontiac on Monday became the highest-profile victim of the U.S. auto industry crisis with General Motors Corp’s announcement the brand would cease to exist in 2010.

The death of a brand that captured the imagination of generations with the Firebird, Trans Am, Grand Am, Grand Prix and GTO — the latter immortalized in the song “Little GTO” by Ronnie and the Daytonas, which reached No. 4 in the U.S. charts in 1964 — left car enthusiasts stunned.”

Cine urmeaza? Saturn. De care nu prea vedem decat prin Australia.

Niste idioti americanii. Din anii 70 incoace nau mai facut nimic evolutiv, sau plafonat. Masinile americane din anii 90 sunt aproape identice ca si tehnica cu cele din anii 70. De prin 2000 incoace au mai facut cate ceva la modelele premium. Acu sa culeaga ce au semanat. Mai bine ar fi vandut Pontiacu la chinezi sau indieni. Ca si Oldsmobile, decedat in 2004.
