  • 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!

Welcome to FP!

Please give us a little more information. Does your Grand Lemans have a 2-bbl or 4-bbl carburetor? Is it the original or has it been replaced?

Pictures of your intake and carb will help too.

Have you taken any carburetor cleaner to the carb and choke assembly and thoroughly cleaned off any gunk and fuel varnish that might have accumulated on it over the last 38 years? In many cases, a sticking choke is solved by a thorough cleaning. 

If you have already tried that, let us know and we will move forward from there.
