  • 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!

Well, I figured since my car was up and running again, I'd start an actual progression!

Nice! Good job on the tails!

I'm with you on the bright car thing, I've owned a dark blue Monte and now my black G6 but I don't think red will be in my future lol. I'd admire and like red but there's something about it that I would never own.

Clean up your car! :agreed: That's why the cats there :lol:

the bounce like a mofo though, hence the white weather stripping around them, cmessick and I are going to try and make a solution that uses the stock mounting bracket. Out put is freaking great though.

This is probably one of the most expensive times to get tint but meh you might be able to find a good deal :bacon: . Winter is probably the best time to get tint because nobody is thinking about getting it done and the businesses are hurting.

Anywho the GP is looking great, very nice!

I have a friend who has a friend in the biz. lol

reminds me of a Jimmy Buffett song...... "Everybody's Got A Cousin In Miami "

"Hey Jimmy, you know anybody in Miami that can get me a passport

real quick?"

"Oh yeah, yeah man. I've got a cousin up there. He knows

everthing about everything. Let's see if I've got his number

here somewhere, yeah. No, he works out of a payphone...oh yeah.

I've got it here. Okay. Today's international investor,

whatever that is. Yeah, everybody's got a cousin in Miami. Here

we go."

MOAR PROGRESSION!!!!

White foam around headlights... GONE - Achieved using 2 6 inch lengths of 1" heater hose under the bumper cover to steady them and eliminate a gap issue.
