Now that Pontiac is gone... (fun/stupid game...??)

Postby bloke » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:33 pm

can't Buffet and Miraphone use those cool model names...??

Check 'em out:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Pontiac_vehicles

A large percentage are worthy of consideration.

Hey...Some tuba models still only have NUMBERS.
Whether currently in production or NOT, how about this?

Pick a tuba model that ONLY is a number, and (in your post) assign one of the Pontiac model NAMES to that model, if you find one that seems appropriate to the playing characteristics or appearance of that particular model...

The Fiero sounds like a euphonium.
All that, plus $8.00, will get you a venti at Starbucks.
Or in my case, a large can of Folgers.

Wow.... the Aztec... those were very strong contenders for the title of ugliest cars ever made.
