  • 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!

Arcadian - version of the Vega and later the Chevette

Tempest - version of the Corsica

Firefly - version of the Geo Metro

Can't say I'd ever even heard of it. They mention the Firefly ... which was a decent car for what it was. The intercooled turbo was actually pretty nippy. I had a shot at buying a convertible .. but it was an automatic. Damn thing couldn't beat a bicycle off a red light.  I'm still in the market, but the 3 convertibles I keep seeing on Kijiji are all far overpriced.

Well Shit!!! Seems I just missed on at the gov't auctions. https://www.gcsurplus.ca/mn-eng.cfm?snc=wfsav&sc=enc-bid&scn=247897&lcn=397321&lct=L&srchtype=&so=ASC&sf=ferm-clos&lci=&str=1&ltnf=1

Dead battery ... and I suspect keys probably weren't handed in when the vehicle was seized. This didn't get any bids? that sucks.

 

Fired off an email to see if it's still around. Who knows ... I might have found something better than a Yugo.

So call them up and make an offer over the phone. I am sure someone with any cash is better than a no bid. I've never seen any government agency say "no" to money. Of course, bid low since you will have to spend a lot of time and gas on TransCanada 1 to bring it home.

Hmmm ... carfax says it has 4 reports for that VIN. Anyone have a carfax acc't?

 

A little more prowling ... looks like stolen, lien, and salvage. Can't get the details tho. No chance of a reply from a gov't office on a friday ... gives me the weekend to day dream about having the most unique 'pontiac' around.

Well, something to be said for time zones.

 

Thank you for your interest in this vehicle.  Unfortunately, there were no bids when the auction closed, so the department had the vehicle sent to an auto-wrecker. It was destroyed in late March or early April.

 

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news! 

 

I hope you have a good day.

 

One less in the world. Back to hunting Yugos.

I had a buddy of mine in highschool had the Chevy Spectrum.  We would call it the scrotum.  It was so small next to my 77 Impala.
