Four U.S. Car Brands Get Nixed

submitted on October 4, 2010 by pablos17 in "Products / Gadgets"
Say goodbye to Pontiac, Mercury, Saturn, and Hummer. Not that I will miss Hummers at all -they're such parking space and road hogs -good riddance to them.

If there’s one constant in this world, it’s this: We live in a world of constant flux. In the automotive world, however, we’ve all grown accustomed to seeing the same group of manufacturers introduce new models each year. You know the names. But for the 2011 model year—thanks largely to the huge economic downturn that began in late 2008—four well-known American nameplates have gone the way of the Edsel, so to speak.

    I always thought Saturn made good cars. Even Mercury towards is last few years made good stuff.

      Well, he'll be forced from the CA governor's office by term limits at the end of this year, too, just as the last Hummers are being sold. At one time, he owned 7 of the original Humvees built by AM General (military grade made street legal, but only "green" in color Amused ).
