The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

    • I have been having an issue with my 64 Bonneville Vista. It will start right up and run just fine but as soon as it gets to operating temperature it will shut off if I put it in reverse. Once it dies  I can't get it to even turn over or click. I know the proximity of the alternator to the exhaust manifold heats the alternator up really fast and it needs to cool off before it will start again, but is the issue with it cutting out in reverse a separate issue? I bought a heat shield to put on the alternator and if that doesn't solve the problem with the nonstart, I might just end up going with a mini-starter. Any help or suggestions about the stalling in reverse would be helpful. Thanks in advance
    • Just a heads up, this was a backyard mechanic who helped me work on my car. Not ideal, but this car cost me my job when it died out on me and im a single mom, so i am not able to take it to a garage right now. Please, dont throw it in my face about him not being licensed.   I have an 04 grand prix gtp 3.8l v6 series 3 engine.. A few months ago it started this god awful knocking sound. I was told it was a rod knock, to park the car and dont run it until i got new main bearrings. We bought new main bearrings, a crankshaft, a crankshaft sensor, all new plugs and wires, new gaskets, new fluids etc... That was all fixed. The car started up but had a loud ticking/tapping noise. They said it was the alternator, so we went and got a used one, the car started with a jump, but died out. Found out that the battery terminals were shot. Now the car starts fine. However, there is still a really loud tapping noise coming from around the alternator area. He said there is a radiator hose suctioned close, so he checked the dex cool reservoir and it was dry so he topped it with water (yikes bc its 20 here in PA) He said the thermostat was bad and took it out but didnt replace it for now. I asked him to just bring my car back. When he did, he told me that Cyl 3 is misfiring now. Im at a loss. I can't afford a garage right now bc this car cost me my job as is..i took every penny i had to fix this car these last few weeks and now i am tapped out.. Does anyone have any advice or help for me? I dont know what is causing the tapping sound, or the sucked closed hose.   Theres so many things being thrown at me that i don't even know where to begin. Help!?
    • Ok I'm planning on the lock-up converter for this 200R-4 trans swap. Any suggestions on Stall speed ?? Looking at a 2100 stall or should it be lower say around 1700stall.
    • This is true. So chassis and engine components, in most cases, can be cross referenced to the Chevy Impala. However, body sheet metal and interior are often unique to Pontiac/GM of Canada.
    • On Tuesday, Mercedes-Benz said that its new 2020 A-Class sedan will cost $33,495. Adding all-wheel drive to the 2020 Mercedes-Benz A220 bumps the price $2,000 to $35,495. Either way, the A-Class is now the least-costly new Mercedes in the U.S. Both prices include a mandatory $995 destination charge. The A220 is the only model offered—for...View the full article
