    Best was one of its last...the G8. An outstanding example of what an American company could do if the challenge was a high-performance mid-sized sedan.

    Problem is...the G8 came too late and had to go against the tide of stupid anti-American consumers stuck on BMW, Mercedes and Lexus products.

    I guess if your talking past Pontiac's it would have to be the GTO. My first car was a 1966 Pontiac Catalina, a true land yacht, seats were as big as couches, had plenty of power for a big car. Looking back with 20/20 vision, along with the past Vettes I owned, I wished I kept the Catalina too..............

    I'd have to vote for more than one .Personally I'd drop Buick (old folks car )before Pontiac .Pontiac has a more youthful image .

    If traffic is being held up by someone driving 1 mph below the speed limit it's usually a Buick.

    I will have to vote with my heart

    My very first brand spanking new car was a 1969 Firebird 400

    There is one for sale here in Amarillo. It's original except for the Craigers. Just a tad steep on the price ($26,900)...

    If it weren't for the personal attachment, and I would have to pick from the list above, it would be the 1966 - 1967 GTO

    The only race car I ever owned was a 1967 Lemans! It was a dirt track late model in 1976. I ran it a State Fair Speedway in OKC!
