Pontiac people are a-holes.
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude.

Yeah, look at them.  Cheap-ass knock offs of the awesome Chevy Blazer.

Ugh, a 70 - 73 Firebird Formula.  The worst!  Don't know why he's bothering with the fire extinguisher.

Oh, I see now, it's a 70 or 71 based on the grill.  Yeah, those Formulas suck screaming chicken balls. 

Ponch?  I guess you mean poncho.

I'm going to have you thrown off the effing forum for disparaging Frank Poncherello openly like that.

SATB was a stinker. Reynold's funniest movie was W.W. And The Dixie Dance Kings. Still one of my favorite movies. Art Carney was also great in it.
