Despite the pleas for the government (or rich spacemen) to Save GM and other domestic automakers, a federal bailout may not come soon enough, leaving many of these companies to fail. A world without GM, Ford and Chrysler would more than likely mean a world without Camaros, Mustangs, F-150s, Jeeps and Corvettes (well, until Tata buys up the model names at auction to plop on the next-gen Nano). Given the worst possible scenario, what domestic model are you going to miss the most? You better believe we're going to miss the Pontiac G8 ST even though we've never actually driven it. The potential's there — what with the combination of the Pontiac G8 GT sedan, a vehicle that the General should have been building years ago, with a truck bed. After all of our Maximum El Camino love, how much would it suck to get so close to having a new El Camino and then having it ripped away from us? We'd wear black for a decade. Our new foreign overlords would spare the big truck technology and maintain cars they need, but the awesome truck-car niche vehicles will be the first out the window.
