7 GM discontinued cars that deserve a second chance

Pontiac Fiero

Here is another group of discontinued cars, this time they are all from General Motors. Were they ahead of their time, or just plain gone before their time?  It probably doesn’t matter, but they truly deserve a second chance.

Pontiac Fiero

Discontinued in 1988, this is one that would be perfect for modern drivers.

Two seats, mid-engine, plastic polymer body panels, and lightweight; it would be perfect for today’s commuters worried about gas mileage. A little body redesign, this could be a hit.

Chevy Nova

Chevy Nova

The Nova is one of those cars like the Camaro, Mustang, and GTO that if you don’t love it — you don’t love cars.

While every now and then a muscle car will be brought back in an inferior remix (see GTO) or overly redesigned (see Dodge Charger), the Nova is a great chance to give the world a simple, infinitely customizable muscle car. Give the gearheads freehand

Geo Metro Convertible

If you didn’t have a crush on a cheerleader driving one of these things, you weren’t a teenage boy in the 1990s.

GM really dropped the ball on their Geo line. A lower-end line of compacts should have been bigger than the Mustang, but the Geo was obviously built from duct tape and good intentions. To bring back a compact convertible aimed at the Mean Girls crowd

Cadillac Coupe Deville

Cadillac Coupe Deville

Somewhere along the line, Cadillac forgot all about keeping their pimp hand strong. Among all the Escalades and alphabet soup full-sizes, there’s nothing that comes close to the iconic charm of the Coupe Deville.

Somehow, when everyone went retro, this was a look that got forgotten about. Bring this thing back, and give Snoop Dogg a free one. It’d make a billion dollars

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

It’s been a long time since America had a good, solid Executive Sedan.

The Cutlass was a perfect Dad Car, and other than the Chevy Cobalt, nothing has come close in recent years. Businessmen have been forced to choose between a luxury car or something not meant for their needs. Bring back the Cutlass and you’re giving the mid-level executive a great, practical car again.

Chevrolet Corvair

Chevrolet Corvair Monza

The Corvair was a magnificent car with one small PR problem. It was labeled as “unsafe at any speed.” Oops.

GM has been given a do-over on enough things and are batting about .640 on second chances. They could likely get the Corvair right on the second go-around and deserve another chance.

Chevrolet El Camino

Is there any other reason needed other than “it was awesome”?
