Pontiac – Where’s the Excitement? Ultimate Lineup

Pontiac is GM’s “Excitement Division”, at least by their standards.  The problem is that very few of their models are particularly exciting.  With the announcement by GM that there will be no new Firebird or Trans Am, the prospects get even worse.

Nissan Ultimate Lineup

We’ve gone a few months with out an Ultimate Lineup post, but today I’ll be fixing that.  Nissan currently has somewhere between 13 and 16 vehicles in it’s lineup, depending on where you draw the lines.  Either way, it’s an awfully big lineup and could use a closer look.  That’s where I come in – […]

Ultimate Lineup

I’ve been ranting a lot lately about how many car makers have too many overlapping models, even within the same brand. So I’m going to create the Ultimate Lineup for each brand. I’ll show which cars stick around, and which ones get the axe. If there’s a whole in the lineup, I may even invent […]
