      I think the Grand Prix takes the grand prize.

      I agree, my parents helped me with my first car. 76 Grand Le Man's. It was a beautiful car. It had the Grand Prix interior. I had the Rally II wheels, factory 8 track, tilt wheel, bucket seats with auto on the floor. It was a demo. It had 3,500 miles, listed for 5950.00. Wish I had kept it. The A body Pontiac's were considered the underdog of the other GM mid-size. No dash was better looking than the Grand Le Man's. I had the 350, it moved it okay. It was a heavy car. Pontiac had beautiful cars. I never understood, why for about 300.00 more you could be a Catalina over the full size Chevy. It had a longer wheel base, more inside room and a 400 standard V-8.

      You Americans made some awesome looking vehicles back then. Cars of today are totally lacking in charisma and style.

      This is an advertising film. I wouldn't have any clue where it was broadcast, this is an electronic version produced from a 1 minute commercial negative distributed to TV Stations.

      All of the divisions did that. GM was cheapening out on everything ie lots of hard plastic in a $70,000 Cadillac, same radio controller in most of the lineup, and bad ignition switches. Of course, people took advantage of the ignition switch fiasco later on and tried to sue GM and claimed a faulty ignition switch killed their son/daughter when really their son/daughter were drunk and wrapped their Cobalt around a tree. Although alcohol was noted in the police reports, GM didn't have enough proof to turn it back around on the parents, so they settled. It also didn't help that people hung 25 lbs. of keys from the ignition switch and unknowingly put stress on the ignition switch.

      Pontiac didn't "fail and die", it was all of GM and it was the whole economic situation with the stock market and the gas prices, etc. It was GM choosing it as one of four brands it decided to discontinue, because it had to pick SOMEthing because the company itself was in huge trouble. Now, why we need a GMC division when Chevrolet offers the same vehicles, that doesn't make sense to me, but they kept GMC. Pontiac did at least have its own brand identity as the sporty division of GM. It could have survived had GM put in a little more effort. Many of its models were legendary, e.g. Grand Prix, Firebird, Trans Am, GTO. It was perceived as a brand younger people would buy. I don't get why they couldn't keep it going. Also the fact that GM keeps moving Chevrolet more and more upmarket, offering nicer and nicer equipment on a Chevrolet. It had been that Chevrolet was the low priced brand, and to get the nicer bells and whistles, you had to move up to a Pontiac, an Oldsmobile, or a Buick. Now you don't need to do that, so why would you decide to buy a Pontiac over a Chevrolet? If Pontiac still existed, I would buy a car from them. You say this is the Canadian commercial, but I think you're mistaken - these seem to be the U.S. models! In Canada they had the Laurentian and Parisienne instead of the Catalina and the Bonneville.

      @OsbornTramain You're a dumbass if you think a certain division was a "failure". They were limited vehicles and alot more special than the current manufacturers. Pontiac became the car everyone recognized and ruled the 60s and 70s. Trans Ams and Ram Air IV GTOs just ruled. The Road Runner was alot more special than the Charger. Dodge was too common and still is. Plymouth stayed American muscle. Dodge became a bunch of overpriced fiats with airbags that everyone hates now. Plymouths didn't become pussy cars like Dodges became. A sedan? Airbags? Last time I checked, the Viper didn't go because of any failure. It left its mark and now is a very limited vehicle. An enthusiast's vehicle and always has been. The failure are cars like the sedan Chargers, darts and newer camaros and challengers. They weigh 8000 pounds

      I'm 22 and own a 68 LeMans with a 400. It all started at 19 when I bought a slow 81 Trans Am, but maaan did that thing get me jacked up on older cars. Also had a 79 Camaro and Firebird.

      My take on GMC was that a Cadillac, Buick or any other GM division at the time would be able to sell a truck without involving Chevrolet.
