1936 Auburn boattail speedster that won a Good Guys best car award. What a beautiful car. He picked pricey Vail CO over Northern CA. Wonder if that had something to do with the Petersen Museum decision. Not exactly classic car territory unless its a 69 Bronco and you like rock chips.

In the timeline of failed businesses from the 1929 stock market crash, it's amazing those luxo cars got produced.

It's also amazing that now failing companies DON'T fail, due to socialistic government policies using our money to "bail" them out. Alas, our Pontiac didn't suffer that fate.

I attended thr 2004 Chicago Auto Show. The contrast was night and day. Ford shot video in Detroit backstreets, racing original LeMans Cobra, Brand new GT, and a next gen. Mustang. The video was on a 70 foot screen behind these fabulous race cars. I can't freakin find Pontiac. Oh look, they hid it way back in the broom closet behind all the other GM brands. I find a person, adk where is the new GTO, just debuting? It's not even the first car, but they have one. The seats are awesome, the upholstery far better than my Firehawk, just 2 year earlier. It doesn't have the plastic everywhere. Sales can't tell me much. Pretty sad. Summary: GM was a trainwreck. Layers and layers of bloated leadership that needed a Covid virus to thin the herd. I ignored GM for my next several vehicles. Toyota produced durable long lasting cars with near zero cost of maintenance. That competition forced GM to build better. We chancdd a 2019 Volt. Great driver, love the handling. Its better than I expected out of GM. Technical is not perfect, but not forcing us to find a dealer or get towed, not once. The croed sround Ford was about 500. No room to get close to the 3 cars on rotatng turntables. GM, about 2 parties,checking over the GTO. Remainder of Pontiac was not worth mentioning. BUT the car- by Holden of Australia, was a phemonenal sleeper. You can't hit15,000 cars the debut year if you don't market!

Ford sold 150000 the same year. A Cobra in 2004 produced 390 Factory HP. The big thing was the ecotec engine debut with turbo. Ford halved a display engine for customer examination. Heads at Pontiac should have been canned for their token representation of a BMW challenger.

2004 GTO offers 350 HP.. 2005 ups it to 400HP, the peak for the 3 year GTO. The weak factory rear is not improved upon. I have made it a point on my LS1 to not track thrash it, so as to maintain driveability. My one way is around 650 miles, no backup plan.

Ford began spending on real eye catching marketing. I am back in school, rather than suffer the great recession. Young classmates turn me onto gymkhana videos. Ken Block sells so many cars or at least dreams for the youth set. Still love this one, sunset ending.

While you're in school, get some learnin' about "confirmation bias". You'll find that people have a tendency to support their own conclusions by: ignoring contrary evidence and interpreting information to support that conclusion. That reminds me...whatchya think about all those videos that disprove your claims about the Rittenhouse shooting?? Why can't you see reality? That bias thing.....

rioting was by white militia radicals firebombing. FBI tracked this, FACT. Their 15 passenger vans ran from Kenosha to Chicago and also all over Wash D.C. That is a insurrection, and there is a very sizeable number of this group, who morph into similar strategies and share common goals with ANTIFA. If the objective fits, so be it. Not much different than the fluid flow of "patriots" fighting in ISIS, Taliban, and Al Quaeda. You have exactly the same modus operandi. Did you note that Swastika showed up in elevato at State Department. Did you note that off duty cops were in the insurrection at the capital. Did you note the large number of former military who protested and breached the capital including the Air Force woman who was fatally shot breaching the door to the Senate I think. I have little to talk to you about as long as you side with lawless against a orderly form of government. You and your kin are insurrectionist. You back endlessly a militia wannabe poser who was so wet behind the ears, it is no wonder he couldn't manage a firearm under intense resistance. Precisely why I hate hunting with Pheasant hunters. They make a line, react hastily, rapid fire and often use semi automatics. Good way to get taken down by the hair trigger and mis-reads of a adrenaline pumped brain. If you aren't trained in combat, you got no business marching into a mob riot in middle America somewhere, knowing it is going to be a major provocative act bringing the full force of the citizens against you in a smack down. You can not obey the constitution and protest peacefully wrongs and mis-deeds of the government when you have extremists acting as lawless militia to put you down. That is not a nation. That is a anarchy state run by the biggest thug. And you lay down and prostate yourself to the biggest thug of all. Sad.

Hey, I've REPEATEDLY said "BOTH SIDES" are a problem. I'm NOT on either of those sides. Look a few replies back...."bad folks doing bad things", but not as bad as the riots, where Police were NOT ALLOWED by their DEMOCRAT mayors to enforce the law. Cities boarded up for the election knowing Trump would beat the Houseplant and Democrat rioters would destroy stuff. How about the current (this month) looting in San Francisco....are all those young black people militia members? LOL Watch a video...learn something.

sleepy Paducah had rioting? I did bot ssy their are moron leftists. And moron right wing types too. We can't fix stupid. Founding fathers worried with goidreason about mass voting. People are sheeple. Doesn't rske much to steer the herd right off a cliff. The present Covid war is a awesone example. Got nothing to do with politics, so why would a war on humans play out in this idiocy we are watching. I see Srkansas and South Western MO arexsuper bad in this breakout thst has lije 10000 times more transmissibility. If you can grt bacinated,,best do it fast. This thing is mean and I've already lost close friends. You have a family, don't screw with their safety.

You lack the mental capability to discuss Covid issues. I've been involved in an internet discussion about it on a truck forum, there was lots of info from all points of view, and I learned much. The most important info: The media lied about Covid. It's NOT as deadly or contagious as they claim. Most of my friends and family have had it. OFTEN one spouse will get it, while the other won't. And, do you know the "horse wormer" Ivermectin treats Covid? Sheeple believe the biased media's lies. Then they lie. Like Firstliar.

getting vacinated does not prevent getting sick. What it does is keep you from requiring hospitalization, organ destruction, and death. You have had at least 3 to 5 vaccines in your lifetime, none of which messed you up. No one questioned polio vaccine, at a revolutionary first innoculation experience, because you could see the devastation of not getting vaccinated all around you. No one had qualms about avoiding a lifetime being crippled,,and needing crutches, or a broken walking gait because of ruined limbs that could not carry your weight. We all know polio victims, if we were born in the 50s. Those I know who were victims were born in the 40s.

FirstBrandon, when Trump was running in 2016, and when he was elected, the leftist media said he was fascist. Now Biden is "mandating" that people get medical care against their will. The same media that FALSELY said Trump was fascist is also SILENT about a much more fascist move by Biden. Did you notice that bias? Most likely you did not, because I think you have the same bias.
