Re: Is it a Pontiac or not?
Yup! I'm with Hypa, 100%... i know fishhead is just bored and trying to stir up some debate, all good...
Fishhead the 'vintage' docs I'm refering to, are not 'vintage'... they come from GM Vintage Vehicle services which provides a documenting service, it is a reasonably official peice of documentation which is printed more recently, it is not from the 'era' ... it is a great peice of paper, even though George does list it as a pontiac, since it documents the cars option list, body style (ie. SD or not for example) and engine build date and codes as well, which really puts a cramp on counterfeiters...
this really isnt a debate at all, its not subjective...its a bit cloudy, but the cars are what they are, they are not pontiacs. if they were they would say pontiac on them, and on the literature. and if they were/are, it doesnt really matter. In some ways gm was kinda foolish to not make them a pontiac or a chevy, they lost a lot brand recognition by trying to create something new, and thats not easy to do.
