That's just not working for me but, if it helped BMW sell some cars, it worked for someone...

How many cars did Pontiac sell with the GP name? What are their ties to GP?
With MINI/Mini at least their are some links.

Yeah, well at least the Mini GP is in good company. The Pontiac Grand Prix is one hell of a car.

On vacation in Kauai Hawaii. Just saw GP 0058 (think that was the number), made a U-turn to catch up in the resort parking lot but it disappeared.
