  • 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!

Report: BBS files for bankruptcy... again

Recommended Posts

Filed under: Aftermarket, Europe, Earnings/Financials

German wheel manufacturer BBS has declared bankruptcy, and it's not the first time. Back in 2007, BBS was plagued with financial difficulties but Punch International stepped in to provide much-needed capital. The news of a second bankruptcy, which was filed on December 30, apparently came as a shock to the hundreds of employees and even corporate partner IG Metall. The latter was getting ready to put a few million bucks into BBS and rival company Ronal was ready to buy BBS' Herbolzheim factory. We can only hope that BBS makes a strong recovery and we're not forced to look at BBS Bear wheels.

Say what? Not BBS!

It's funny, I saw this pop up on another forum I'm on, and just about every comment was "Well, that's what you get when you don't change up your wheel designs,"

Made want to hurl chairs.

Noo. I love me some BBSes.

I pretty much salivated over Super RSes till I could afford them. I own 2 sets, well 1.75 now and some 15" RSes.

It's tough to improve upon perfection.

they are nice, but i somewhat agree that most of their designs look VERY similar to each other. they are good, sexy wheels, but in this economy, very few ppl can afford them.

Yeah... They are going to be selling off their largest factory and cutting down their line up of wheels.
