  • 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!

Hi everyone. A few months ago, I came into possession of a '68 Tempest Sport Coupe. This car is very special to my family because it was bought new by my wife's grandfather. It ended up sitting covered and unmoved for the last 27 years. My in-laws were kind enough to let me have it. I did a few weeks of prep work and got it running. It moves & stops under its own power, though I have more work to do before it's road worthy. Looking forward to interacting with the group. I'll share what little knowledge I have, and I'll be asking some questions.  Here are two shots -- one is the car right before I started working on it, and the second is how it looks now.

Welcome to FP.

Nice looking Tempest. It's amazing what a simple bath can do to a car.  At this point, I don't see a whole lot of rust or rot - on the outside.  I see this is also a post-car and not a coupe.

So what have you done so far to get it running and what are your plans for the future.?We don't mind you asking questions, even if, to you, they may seem dumb. This how we all learn. I own a '72 LeMans Sport convertible myself.
