As usual, GM killed many incredible cars, just to keep the reputation of their glass slug.
What a shame too.
The smart thing to do would have been to make the Vette engineers man-up and work harder at keeping the baby on the top of the pile instead of protecting them from competion.
It would have made ALL of the generals products stronger.

I know a lot of Pontiac guys like to say Chevy stole the design from Pontiac for the C3, but the Monza GT was made in 62. Two years before the Banshee. Larry Shinoda and Tony Lapine designed the Monza GT. Oddly enough, they designed tge Mako Shark II as well, hmmm...
