saving Pontiac

savingpontiac.org please go and at the very least sign the petition. People buy cool looking cars. Evidense is on the street with Mustang,Challenger.Charger, Camaro,and when you can see a car and it makes you want one,then it will sell. My point is laid out at the savingpontiac.org website. go there read the white paper and you'll see why Pontiac needs to come back. Lingenfelter and Trans Am Depot both have built new versions of a brand new Trans Am using the Camaro platform. Pontiac outsold Audi and Volvo combined in both 08 & 09. They sold almost as many Pontiacs as BMW. There is the Springhill Tennesee factory sitting idle that could be put back online building (to start) some Trans Ams and we at savingpontiac.org want to get a team together to draft some "cool looking Pontiacs" designs that will sell and build them as soon as GM gives us the permission to use the brand. You can buy one from Lingenfelter and/or Trans Am Depot and thats fine but we need the Pontiac brand back as it doesn't make sense from a business standpoint to close the brand. It was forced on GM as a condition of the bailout because it my opinion they don't want performance cars. But we as taxpayers who bought into GM should demand that they let the team at savingpontiac.org get it done. They have a business plan that shows profitability and as owners we demand a return on our investment. The formula is people will buy cool looking cars and Pontiac can return to building them. Some hate the idea of retro and others complain about a corporate platform/engine but you can't go backwards with technology and it appears that retro does sell. If the right designs comeup with a new "67 GTO" that looks cool like Ford did with the Mustang and Dodge did with the Challenger, well what do you think? am I nuts or is anyone with me? contact your congressman and signup and we will show the world what can be done.
