Ah-hhh, yet another end of an era. The announcment that GM would discontinue their Pontiac line brought a tear to my eye. My father and mother's first automobile, purchased two months after my birth, was a 1929 Pontiac Roadster. It had a marvelous rumble seat, which I can actually remember riding in at around the age of five, just before he sold it. Yellow in color and bright with chrome … what a car!
One just like it recently fetched $115,000 on the auction block. GM couldn't even give away A 2009 Pontiac today, there's such a glut of unsold this year's models stashed in vacant lots all over the country. Just thought it would be of interest to you automobile buffs and history freaks …. and a nice memory hit for me.
