    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!

One of the local Chevy dealers went out of business here and was bought out by the national Hendricks. That dealer though was the opitimy of "old school" dealers though. Sales that tried to take advantage of you and crummy service dept. to boot. Went there to look around and price a Camaro when I was looking, they wanted to charge me way too much, no GM discounts, nothin. Laughed, walked out and went to a dealer 20 min away. Night and day difference. Dont think i have to say who i bought the Camaro from.
