  • 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!

On the 2016 Power Tour, my GTO ate a rocker arm going into Wichita KS.  My son and I spent the next 2 days in the Motel 6 parking lot in 100+ degree heat trying to get it running again.  We were successful, but opted to rent a UHaul rig and trailer it home anyway over concerns that the failed rocker arm had put shrapnel through the engine.  That turned out to be a wise decision once we got it home and torn down.   It had to wait for "awhile" because I was just starting on a project to renovate my workshop and wanted to get that done first.  Then when I did finally get to work on the GTO, I fell victim to a series of "well, while it's apart I might as well do's"...   Two years and a whole lot more than just repairing a rocker arm later, we've got this:
