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.

Chasing the Dragon Lady
Riding shotgun in a brand new Pontiac G8 as we "chase" a U-2 Dragon Lady at
Beale AFB, CA during the golden hour. The G8 Chase car is driven by an
experienced U-2 pilot, Lt. Col. Jon "Huggy" Huggins and the GTO is driven
by Capt. James "Bog" Bartran, both of who are the eyes for Maj. Will "OBG"
Gottenberg and Maj. Pete "Beaver" VanPelt aboard the U-2 as they try to
land on the 12,000 ft runway. With the U-2 approaching the runway at over
140+ mph, the Chase cars accelerates from 0-140 in just over 13 seconds,
all the while keeping a close eye on the approaching airplane. Normally as
the plane over flies "Mobile" or the chase car at just a few feet overhead,
Bog would call out critical altitude adjustments and that would help keep
the U-2 on the center line and in a controlled decent. Landing the Spy
Plane is like trying to land a bicycle on two wheels without being able to
see the ground around you. But in this video, the pilots do an unassisted
or "quiet" landing where they land the airplane without any assistance from
the Mobile Chase car, to simulate an unanticipated landing at an airfield
not equipped with proper landing equipment, such as Chase cars.
Many thanks to the men and women of Beale AFB for all of their hard work to
keep us safe. "In God we trust, all others we monitor."
