Pontiac -- April 29, 2009

General Motors is apparently planning to drop the Pontiac brand, just as they dropped its predecessor and partner Oakland during another economic downturn in 1932. My dad always drove Chevrolets, so I feel a certain connection to all GM brands. This is a 1931 ad from the Saturday Evening Post. Yesterday as I drove home from the Park and Ride, NPR was talking about how car companies are buying fewer ads, which is hitting newspapers, magazines, television, and radio.
