  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. 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!

The calendar is great...only one new generation Pontiac!:lol:

Can i make a request for a 13 month calendar next year? By the time I receive the Dec 2016 to Nov 2017 calendar, Half the month of December will be over. Plus it will allow for one more car in the calendar!

edit: ok I just ordered and noticed you can choose your starting and ending month. I still think a 13 month calendar would be cool...

Couldn't help but notice many of the pic's were cut off and not showing the entire cars.  Is this JUSTA the preview or is this the finished product?

This is the finished product. I am limited by what is provided as an image. Some are great and I am able to display what is needed for the size requirements. Others are centered and close to the car where a full bleed is not possible without cutting off part of the car.

Got an idea for 2018... Pull out the FP  credit card and fly to all the winners homes and take the pictures yourself. That way it will ensure that all pictures are the same and 13 lucky winners will get to meet The FP Fearless Leader himself! :indian:

Got my calendar yesterday as a Christmas gift from my wife and have to say I was very disappointed in the changes made to my picture. It seems that all the "branding" was removed via Photoshop or some similar tool. The GTO emblem in the grille was replaced with a rough white line, The Pontiac arrowhead was removed from the hood and the tire brand was smeared on the right front tire. While I appreciate the license plate being removed, the front bumper looks mangled now.  I noticed other pictures updated as well.

C&Ks GTO - Removed GTO in the grille and cropped the rear of the car.

Diana George KyDon - Removed "Firebird" from the right front fender.

wtjosaas - Removed "Firebird" from the left front fender.

FredZeppelin - Removed white letters from tires, at least for the last picture I saw of his car.

Those are the issues I observed.

Just need to know what is acceptable and what is not so we can take appropriate pictures going forward.

A lot of the branding unfortunately needs to be removed for sale. We try to keep as much as possible that our vendor will allow per our licensing. We'll note that moving forward and state that outgoing. Thank you for the feedback. 

This was a new vendor that we used this year. Are there any quality issues with the printing or paper that you don't like?

Opened mine today.  Really not impressed that they can't size a picture to fit their page, but will take the time to Hack up Ricks photo and any others they messed with, that's out of bounds.  Hope we can find a better vendor for 2017.  Ringo, we do appreciate your efforts to make this happen every year, and it's truly an honor to be a part of the FP calendar.  My opinion....This vendor made a mockery of our top 12 cars.

It does appear our December GTO suffered a wheel/rim meltdown in attempts to "burn-out" Goodrich--whereas it was perfectly clear in other pix. We can also see the obvious bumper distortion where license plate was ripped-off. The removal of certain names/logos appears inconsistent.  That being said, it appears my pix (58 Bonneville--August) escaped any mods, which I'm thankful for.

Ringo, you should hold-out for a final proof-copy before authorizing final publication ...seriously appreciating your HUGE efforts though.

Didn't mean to sound unappreciative for RIngo's work to coordinate all of this, just offering feedback for what I perceived as actions by the new calendar vendor. As mentioned earlier, we just need to know the rules so we can take them into consideration while taking the pictures. My daughter is a professional graphics artist and could have taken care of the changes required for my picture had we known. No one would have been able to tell she made any changes.

Certainly appreciate the feedback guys. We try and find vendors who will work with us and not skyrocket the price so that the calendar remains reasonable. Unfortunately, that does mean there might be some "gotchas." I'll start researching earlier for 2017 to see how we can improve quality but keep pricing reasonable. 

Just this year, our previous vendor sent me into a tailspin (like literally the day of sending out the email) due to a decision on their part that made me scramble for another vendor.

      Thank you to all our participants and voters in our 2019 Forever Pontiac Calendar contest! We are very happy to announce that the calendar is ready and is in our store for purchase!
      The calendar is a bit smaller this year as we received notably some feedback on the price last year. The calendar is 11"x8.5" which is a regular-sized calendar and not the jumbo size like in some previous years. That has brought the price down about ~$8
      We received most all entries photos except for Phil Beerhold which was replaced by Sweet Broccoli. Thank you, Sweet Broccoli for having a good picture ready
