|I couldn't agree more Earl. And yes, the GTO we know is famous even now was made from 1964 to 1974, so, you have it quite correct. ;) The GTO concept looked pretty too, as you said, and they could've been given the green light to use that body style instead of basing it off a Austrailian-bulit Holden Monaro. Nowadays, most Pontiacs were either a clone of other GM vehicles, or based off Aussie muscles like the Holden Commodore, which GM sold in the U.S. as the Pontiac G8, and due to those factors, that was the main reason why Pontiac sales kept sliding until the very moment that they could no longer substain that kind of volume... I guess now that, in the future, any modern-day Pontiac like this one would cost a LOT more than even now...|

|R.I.P., Pontiac. :( We all miss you, Pontiac. But to look on the bright side, at least they were around with us for as long as they were, and made some very good cars, too.
Most notably, of course, the famous GTO of '64-'74 (or was it '75?)
Solstice (one of my favorites next to the GTO, including the Trans Am & Firebird),
Aztec (the Aztec might've been the "ugly duckling" of the bunch, but still it's important),
Sunfire (which wasn't quite that good, but was decent, in some respects),
To name almost a dozen different cars that they made.
Pontiac's GTO concept car of '99 looked pretty sweet, but it's a shame that it never got made, and was a design experiment and was without an engine, though. Had Pontiac decided to take it past the concept stage, they would've had one hell of a car, without a doubt.
