A quick overview of Pontiac Motor Division, from the first Pontiac-branded car built in 1926 and its beginnings as an offshoot of the Oakland car company, to the final '09 and '10 cars. Also features some commercial and movie footage in which Pontiacs played an important role.
My first car was and is a 1985 Pontiac 6000 STE, and I want a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT very badly someday, so the brand's elimination came as a shock and a huge disappointment to me. I hope Pontiac may one day return, but for now, this video is my farewall salute to a great brand with a great history. Enjoy.
Thanks to all people who supplied the photographs and video clips. A few of the pictures are my own, all others have been borrowed from others and I take no credit for their creation. All content is property of its respective owners.

I Dream of Jeannie 1965 Pontiac GTO Opening Scene
Major Nelson's 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible is featured in this short
opening clip from one of the Black & White I Dream of Jeannie episodes from
the first 1965-66 season. Pontiac provided cars for the entire run of the
1965-70 series, and yet oddly GM and Pontiac Motor Division were not
credited for this in the closing credit rolls. The ultra-popular GTOs were
the vehicle of choice for Tony Nelson in the first three seasons, where
'65, '66, and '67 GTO convertibles were provided. Bonnevilles and
Firebirds picked up the task for the last 2 years of the show. Oh Major
Nelson, for heaven's sake - PLEASE NOTE: Fair use and educational value on
TV History are the purpose of this posting, enjoy!

Mourn the death of once a great make and make a little union of Pontiac
fans. This is my very first shot in making the video, so go easy on it.
Rather than using the moody/sad songs/musics, I have gone with the more
up-tune music to re-live the great eras that Pontiac was on, when it was an
icon for perfomance. I know I left out a lot of models here, but I only
included the AMERICAN Pontiacs. No imports, or blatent Chevy rebadges of
the recent. So you won't find the imports like Vibe, recent GTO, G3, G8
that are just an imports, or the blatent Chevy rebadges like G5, Torrent.
Only the true North American Pontiac that has the unique Pontiac Soul.
Since this is my very first video, I admit the quality is amaturistic at
best and some pics are blurry to really see, but, please, go easy on it. I
planned to make a longer, improved version soon.
Thanx. Pontiac may have died, but it's soul, performance and excitement
always lives on, in my heart and in every loyal Pontiac fans!!!!

Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.
