I like that front end more than I like the HSV ones, looks more aggressive and muscular.

I wonder how many Aussie Monaro or just regular Commodore owners will try and fit Pontiac front and rear ends to their cars once it's released...

Damn. I was going to post details.
In 'USA Today' yesterday they had details on the GTO and how it would represent a new coming for Pontiac who are in trouble with sagging sales.


In the article they said the car would be revised with Pontiac styling cues which straight away sent alarm bells ringing for me (Pontiac make some DAMN ugly cars). This pic looks okay, however I find Pontiac is poor in the detailing as opposed to the overall car.

For a perfect example of Pontiac's styling abilities look up the Pontiac Aztec on teir site. It looks even worse in the metal!

I'll bet Skaifey gets one as it matches his own enlarged nostrils.

Oh, this tells you for sure Skaifey has something to do with Pontiac (check the size of the nostrils!!!!!!!)

From what I've read the Aztec was designed by a "committee" of Pontiac executives and that the head designer hates it.

Yes it is an ugly car, but don't blame their design team for that one...
