Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but have litteraly been in a Pontiac my entire life. When I was born, my dad had a 1968 Firebird. A few years later, he sold that and got another 68' Firebird. Around that time, I bought my first car: a 1974 Pontiac Ventura. A year later, my dad sold his Monte Carlo and bought a 2006 GTO. A month later, I bought my 2004 Pontiac Grand Am (which is what I still have). 2 years later, my Mom sold her BMW and got a 2009 G8 GT. Unfortunately, things have gotten a bit tough here. I sold the Ventura 2 1/2 years ago, my dad sold his firebird 2 years ago, and the GTO a year ago, and my mom sold her G8 GT earlier this year. SO, at one point we had 5 Pontiacs in the driveway at the same time, now its only my little Grand Am. I've had the car since October of 2006 and it looks a hell of a lot different now that it did 4 years ago. Also, I'm currently building a turbo 3400 that i plan on dropping in a Vega GT. :bacon:

I'll do one pic of every car mentioned :woot:

Yeah the Ventura had a Pontiac 400 in it. Last i heard, the guy pulled the 400 out, put it in hie 67' GTO and and was going to crush the Ventura :lol2:

The Firebird is well taken care of, the guy who bought it from us LOVES it and has it completely rebuilt. We're still trying to relocate the GTO and G8 is currently at auction i think.

Thanks Chris, Darren told me about this site so I had to join up. Its cool to see a forum dedicated to (in my opinion) the best looking cars on the road.

"f--- yeah!" i said.....then i few months went by and he never contacted me back. now i'm afraid to contact for fear that he already crushed it :lol2:

Wow, your car history is like a epic novel. For the love of god don't sell the GA. I don't care if the stock market crashes, there should always be a Pontiac in that driveway.............................There should be a GM in every driveway for that matter.

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody! Don't worry, there will ALWAYS be a Pontiac in my driveway. I think in a year or two, once my GA is paid off, I'm gonna finance another car, and its either gonna be another G8GT, GTO, or a late model Trans Am WS6. I'd even rock a G6 GXP Street Edition Coupe.

LY7 powered G6's are sick. They had a few GTP's equipped with the LY7 and not the LZ9 motor.
