  • 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!

Pontiac Sunfire flies off Pikes Peak cliff!

Recommended Posts

Watch a rally car fall off Pikes Peak

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7rVdS8Qnvb8

Matt Hardigree — Bobby Regester raced his modified Pontiac Sunfire to victory at Pikes Peak in the past, but this weekend he made a small miscalculation and literally drove off a mountain. It is one of the scariest crashes you'll hopefully only have to ever see here.

Pikes Peak rewards fearless driving and punishes it in dramatic fashion.

Climbing a narrow path at speeds exceeding 100 mph along the edge of the mountain tests the limits of both car and driver. Regester, despite having a lot of experience driving the mountain, reached the limit of one or both and suffered by crashing down Pikes Peak.

In an example of just how dangerous this can be he lucked out enough to hit a rock, which stopped him from flying over the next crest. Somehow, he walked away from the crash.

That's bad and must have sucked but I was expecting it to be much worse.

From here it might not be that spectacular, but imagine being that guy. I'm sure he thought he was dead.

Judging from the title I thought it was going to be one of those mountain roads that just have a drop cliff not a slope. Still is horrible but the title I immediately though the worse
