John DeLorean's Pontiac Division produced the 1968 GTO which garnered Motor Trend's prestigious Car of the Year award. The fourth time Pontiac was so honored.
Never before has an automobile been so successful in confirming the correlation between safety, styling and performance as the 1968 GTO. With the new combinations of aesthetic unity, unbroken styling lines, decreased body vulnerability, increased impact absorption, and responsive power, handling and controllability, it convincingly proves that optimum design/function criteria for nearly all automotive purposes, can be achieved in one unit.
And these guys were Real Men.....
Pontiac people eat well. Prime rib an inch and a half thick, choice veal with a grapefruit and cheese condiment, filets, grapefruit in V.S.O.P. brandy for dessert ... all in the company cafeterias. Maybe that's where they developed their technique.
In the company cafeteria? Get outta town!
