Poncho...

Pontiac Michigan was named from Indian chief Chief Pontiac. Pontiac Motor Division was based in Pontiac Michigan.

Poncho was a nick name given to a Pontiac. Poncho motors are Pontiac Motors.

Just like GTO is called a "Goat" because  it has the letters in it's name, and the Chevy big  block is called a "Rat" because at one time the

small block chevy motor was called "mouse" after Mighty Mouse the cartoon character. "Rat" being bigger than the "mouse"

This is all old school stuff and sometimes old guys like to keep the traditional names going.

Don't worry about it...we love our Ponchos.biggrin

Some people feel that "Poncho's" are Canadian Pontiac's.  Pontiac bodies with Chevrolet engines.
