Death by Decepticon
The post-meltdown General Motors looks to divest some of its lines, including Pontiac. The last striking image I saw of the Pontiac was that of Autobot Jazz, a Pontiac Solstice coupe, being ripped apart by Megatron in the final scenes of the Transformers movie.
Before his demise, Jazz was putting up a weak fight against Megatron, firing puny little lasers that barely appeared to even tickle the evil leader. He was screaming "You want a piece of me? You want a piece of me?" [Pew pew pew!] And Megatron booms "No, I want TWO!" and then tears Jazz up accordingly into two flailing hunks of scrap metal.
That sums up the fate of Pontiac. GM was a big partner in the Transformers movie. Almost every automobile was one of their brands. Now that GM has been brought to its knees, the long foreshadowed fate of Pontiac is clear for all to see. If Lamborghini or Ferrari featured a vehicle in the Transformers movie, they would never have let their robot be abused by another. GM was asking for it, haha!
Good bye, Pontiac! Your Aztec model was such an ugly bugger too!
