Background on Pontiac
General Motors acquired Oakland Motor Car Co. in 1909 and renamed it as Pontiac in 1931 after a historical Ottawa Indian chief who once occupied a city named after him.
Pontiac sold a variety of affordable coupes, sedans, and wagons throughout the 30s and 40s period. The brand was among the most popular vehicle brands in the country because of its high-quality cars; however, it had been unprofitable around the time its parent company had severe financial problems. Due partly to increasing pressure to file for bankruptcy, GM decided to discontinue the brand in 2009.
