Top Down and Ready to Cruise

Good Monday Morning!

I always feel energized after the Thanksgiving Holiday! How about you?

I encourage everyone to write, call, fax and email your Washington representatives. The Jobs Summit is this weeks and that puts us front and center. If we can make some noise this week, maybe we can make our dreams come true! (Prayer and wishing on a star doesn't hurt, either)

let's let our voices be heard and not just be left behind in the morass of "other plans". Push Pontiac and hope we can be heard.

My thanks to everyone!! Have a wonderful Monday!

How is everyone on Saturday Morning?

A little chilly in ATL.

It has been an interesting week. Some of you have sent credentials for jobs if we are successful. Some have indicated that they have investors interested in joining our cause.

First, I would love all of you to work with me. You are the epitome of the spirit of Pontiac! If we are successful, hopefully some of you will be working with the new Pontiac! First we need everyone to spread the word to make us successful!
As to funding; if you have people that are interested, we should talk. The amount of funding that we need will be likely too high for a single investor, but we would love that. The cost is the reason we have suggested Government funding; but you never know!

As always, thanks to everyone for your support and efforts!! Have a great Saturday!

Turkey Hangover?

Good morning to all!

I ate to much...and you?

We believe that Savingpontiac.org continues to be a desirable alternative to President Obama's current difficulties. Healthcare, Global Warming, the economy and various initiatives have not been received well by the electorate.

If he will announce creating 40,000 jobs using our formula, we think this will change the way, at least some, view his efforts. Without taking sides, our country needs some very good jobs news and an indication that our leaders are on the side of Americans. We are it! Let's see how the next few days play out.

Have a Great Friday....so many thanks to each of you!! (special note: Adam Wollensak and Donnell Hicks)

Happy Thanksgiving!

We truly hope you and yours find the time to be thankful today!

Enjoy this Holiday and relax.

We will continue our efforts tomorrow!

Thanks to you our members!

Good Morning to everyone on the day before Turkey day! Thankful to be here as the alternative is not appealing!

Sorry I got distracted from the Blog this morning. I was working on the new editorial. Take a look, it is very sad to me that GM could be owned by China.

At any rate have a wonderful day today and a great Thanksgiving if you do not check in tomorrow!!

GM is Amazing

Good morning to everyone. We wish you a happy Tuesday!

GM gets the woofy award this morning. Recently GM tanked the deal to sell Opal to a Canadian firm backed by the German Government and a Russian bank. This amounted to an $8 to $10 Billion commitment to the restructuring of Opal throughout Europe. The move created hard feelings with Governments all over Europe.
Yesterday we learn that now GM is begging for Government loans to accomplish the restructuring of Opal. And oh, by the way, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany is admonishing all Governments not to be lending to the Americans. What does this tell us? That GM had no plan and no idea how they would restructure Opal; they just decided that they did not want to sell. How can you have no plan and no direction with a bankrupt company that commits billions to a restructuring? The answer of course is this kind of decision is exactly what landed GM in the predicament that they are currently in.

The US taxpayers will ultimately pay for this act. It makes me crazy...and you? Please have a blessed day today!!

The Crush of Quiet

Our politicians crave and exist on being heralded by constituents calling for more great programs. It must be very quiet to those ears accustomed to cheers by the voters.

Please let our congressmen know that JOBS NOW is one way to restore those accolades. Savingpontiac.org is one way to get those jobs now! After all we would hate our politicians to be lonely!

Have a great day everyone and please write your congressmen about savingpontiac.org. We need your help!!

What Grand Prix used to be...

Good Morning to all.....

Isn't this a great car? The Grand Prix used to be a luxury car with a big engine. Hard to believe sometimes...I remember them well and thought they were even better than the luxury car Bonneville.

We are fueled by the memories of greatness past. If we have success, perhaps we can bring the feeling back to Pontiac.

Our thanks to each of you for your support...have a blessed Friday!

Six Days for Spring Hill

Good morning on Thursday.

I do not know if you saw the article about the GM Plant in Spring Hill, TN is closing in 6 days. I think this is truly a sad event. This plant was where the Saturn launched about 20 years ago. It is one of GM's most advanced facilities...and it is owned by taxpayers. Oh well, just another 2,000 people laid off.

This event reflects why Savingpontiac.org was formed. This plant does not need to close. This plant does not have to be withheld from the taxpayers. We need to use it saving Pontiac!
Let's use our twitter accounts, write or email our congressmen and generally try and raise awareness that the taxpayers and all Americans deserve better than this!! Go get em!!

Thanks to all and have a blessed Thursday!!

Twitter

Good Wednesday morning!

As began putting together our website it was thought that twitter might be a good place to spread the word about our project. It is a great place to do just that. A couple of things about Twitter:

If our members have accounts there, we encourage them to tweet daily about our project. If you do not have an account please open one and help spread the word!

Secondly, we have recently learned about a twitter account called @guardianangels (www.gauardianangels.org). they are about saving jobs and helping one person find a job. Great purpose and great effort. Please join them and support the effort!

Have a great day...Hump day and all!

You Guys Rock!

Good morning to Everyone!

I am not sure what happened but the belief that we can save Pontiac is growing. Our last 5 days of site hits is 100% more than the previous 5 days. It looks like everyone is now sharing our commitment to creating American Jobs and saving this American Icon...Thank you!

We have received some letter from amazing guys that have Pontiac flowing in their blood. They have described to me how they have been restoring our cars for the last 30 years and would drop everything to help with this project. It sure makes me feel wonderful to know you guys are on our team!!

Have a blessed Tuesday and thank you to everyone...You Rock!!!!

Thanks to Everyone

Good Monday morning!

Savingpontiac.org had a great day yesterday! Our rate of new petition signatures and new members continues to grow at an accelerating pace. This is exciting. We usually do not see that much enthusiasm on Sunday. Each of you are truly the best of the best.

Each day we like to thank you for your excitement about saving this American Icon. Stay with us and please keep the word out that we are trying to save 40,000 American Jobs.

We hope that you have a wonderful Monday!!

We Continue to Grow

We had a huge response to our editorial yesterday. That comes as no surprise since there is a great passion for these wonderful cars and there are many Americans out of work.

The latter category continues to climb as GM announced that 1/3 of Saab dealers will be closing. It seems a little strange that we continue to let bailed out GM lay off workers with taxpayer money. In addition to shipping the money in vast quantities to Europe.

On this wonderful Sunday we give thanks to each of you for contributing to our efforts and helping reach the American community!

Have a Great Sunday and have new people visit our site daily!

More Committed than Ever

Good morning to everyone. Another beautiful day in ATL.

One of our fans at Motortopia sent this prototype photo of the 2010 Trans Am. Sure looks like a great Pontiac to me!! When I look at this picture I am reminded of the Heritage that GM is leaving behind. An icon of past greatness in America. When we produced what no other country dared; The Muscle Car.

I don't know about you but to me it seems that America needs a signature car other than the newest Buick or a two seater Cadillac to stir our emotions or for that matter the world's emotions. Consider all the people that have joined with us from Iceland and Norway...The world wants US cars.. great cars.... something other than a US Camry...You know? It makes me want to work harder to save Pontiac...and we are making progress.

Thanks everyone and have a wonderful weekend!!

Friday the 13th....you never know

Good morning to everyone and Happy Friday the Thirteenth! While I am not very superstitious, Over the years I have actually had good luck on this day of reputed Bad luck...Maybe that will hold up.

Yesterday President Obama announced a job summit in December. Several of the prognosticators have suggested that he is searching for a way to create jobs. That tells us that we must raise our voices to be heard. We have JOBS, NOW!

During your daily routine today consider using your twitter or Facebook accounts to raise awareness, write your congressmen, fax a letter to Geithner, Bloom, and Gottlefinger. Get out there and hustle. Awareness is what counts right now.

My thanks to all and have a Happy and Blessed Friday!!

Oh My...What a decision!

When was the last time you made a decision that required PM Vladimir Putin, Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Obama to comment on that decision and discuss it? GM's decision to back out of the Opal deal has brought head of state protests and employee outrage all over Europe and in Russia.

But don't worry, Gm says that these same Governments will be glad to give financing for the $8 to $10 Billion project. Yeah, Right!

The bottom line is that the funds spent on the reprise of Opal will be taxpayer funds and because of the anger surrounding Gm's action the cost should actually push, for you and me, above $10 Billion. Not to worry you are in good hands with GM!

A great day to all and thank you for your support!

Great Day Yesterday

Good Morning to all. Another rainy day in The ATL...Hurricane IDA continues to pour generous amount of water here.

I believe that yesterday a new opportunity was opened for us. GM and all the participants have apparently agreed to send at least $8 Billion to Germany to fund Opal. This is $8 Billion of the taxpayers money. Truly outrageous!

Most Americans had a peculiar belief that their money would be used for rebuilding America and American Jobs. Now we learn that over 10% of the GM bailout is going overseas. Why is this OK?

I will try and get out a new letter for us to email and/or fax to various representatives. Healthcare seems to be on a small news break so now is a good time. Thanks for eveyones support and have a save and wonderful Wednesday!

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Even More!

Good Tuesday morning to all...a little rainy here in ATL. Hurricane nearby, I guess.

Ben Deutshman never gives up. Once again he has placed a piece in an important Pontiac publication.
In the most recent newsletter (wwwhighperformancepontiac.com) from High performance Pontiac they published Ben's letter to the editor about Savingpontiac.org. Great work Ben. Of note, is that at the end of the letter the Editor of the magazine suggested that the members visit us here on our website.
Thank you again, Ben. We always appreciate the effort and enthusiasm.

Our thanks to all our members for their support saving this great company! Have a great Tuesday!

SAVINGPONTIAC.ORG

Good Monday morning!

A number of changes to your website were made over the weekend. The biggest change was adding a page for our Friends. While there are more additions coming, this page proudly displays the sites and members that have jumped on board to give us a hand. We very much appreciate every effort by each of them!

Our newest editorial piece was posted on a number of sites yesterday and of course you can read it on our home page. Please take a moment and see what you think.
All other changes were largely cosmetic and you may not even notice them.

Have a great Monday; I hope it is a terrific day for you!

Government Motors

Good Sunday Morning to all! A little cold for my liking in ATL.

One of our members emailed a video of his impression of a Government Motors performance car. Another reason to save Pontiac.

Take a look!

Have a Great Sunday; all friends and family are needed on our petition!!

Great Work Ben

One of our early members, Ben Deutschman has really helped our cause! This week The Eagle which is the club News letter for the National Firebird Trans AM Club published a full page information piece about Savingpontiac.org. It is through Ben's efforts and all our members that we continue to grow and make a difference.

I would like to invite each of you to join the efforts of Ben to reach for national exposure of our organization. Previously, The Dallas Pontiac club and our members from Norway have provided this national exposure.
A special thank you to Ben, from all of us at Savingpontiac.ORG

Ben Deutschman is a member of the National Firebird Trans Am club, The legislative liaison for both The Pontiac-Oakland International Club and the Pontiac Registry, and the President of The NY/NJ Slant Six Club of America.

We thank all our members for the help and hope you have a great Saturday!!

So its Friday!

Thinking about cruisin', listening to great music, Tops down. This is when we appreciate our cars and appreciate that we can enjoy them.

Pontiac continues to be my choice of cruisin' cars....yours also, I suspect.

We have already posted commentary this morning in the WSJ, NYT, and Newsweek. We are relentless. We thank you for your support and hope you have a great weekend!

Timing is Everything

WOW, what a political backdrop for our efforts. The round pegs are going in the round holes and the square pegs are also fitting where they should.

The election results of Tuesday as mentioned by many writers is that most voters are not happy with the current agenda or the status quo. The pundits are announcing that our leaders need to focus on the economy and jobs to satisfy the voters. This is exactly where Savingpontiac.org wants to be.

We have 40,000 shovel ready jobs...NOW! We have a solution for the electorate. We have what elected officials need to create voter satisfaction for incumbents. It is very important to keep contacting your elected officials by phone, fax or email. Bring us to the top of the agenda!

Keep pushing everyone....we will get there. Thanks for your support!!

Takin' us to Congress

Yesterday our members launched an email campaign to Congress. My thanks to all the participants. This is an important step. We heard back from several members that the list we used was flawed and had some bad email addresses.

We will try again with another list soon. The secondary problem was full email boxes of the addressees. I suspect this had to do with many people emailing about healthcare.

While there were difficulties, this was an important step toward informing and gathering knowledge and support. We are making progress. We wish everyone a great Wednesday and look forward to our next effort to reach those who can help our effort!

Good morning to all....Fred Bloch started with a 1970 GTO (top) and turned it into the 1970 GTO on the bottom. This is great work and a beautiful car. Wonder if anyone is working on refurbishing an Aztec or a Vibe. Pontiac needs to be what it used to be. The brand has so many connotations and connections to when America was a great car manufacturer.

We continue to puzzle over the Government not letting the taxpayers use their GM assets to create jobs. We continue to puzzle over why the UAW does not want to create jobs for it's members. GM's current cash burn is about $4.5 billion per month. We have asked for less than one month of their cash burn. Let's hope the Administration wakes up soon and realizes that the taxpayers want results, not cash burn.

Thanks to all...one of our members will publish a new blog and a twitter page in the next week or so. More Pontiac; that is a good thing! Have a great Tuesday!

More Window Dressing?

Sorry we have been gone for a couple of days. Attending to some family matters. Thanks for standing by.

We have launched, today, a series of articles with various news organizations in the US. The tenor of the article is "How, with the country in desperate need of jobs can Treasury and the Government ignore using the assets that the Taxpayer own?"

It is starting to seem like a contrived event to ignore the taxpayers again. Savingpontiac.org continues a relentless effort to inform and encourage our Government of the need for jobs and those that are available today in the auto industry with no additional investment in plant or brand.

It appears that the Treasury would rather throw money at banks then create more jobs with little investment. Keep writing the Congress and helping with our membership. Thanks to you all and have a great Monday!!
