  • 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!

To these shoppers, a loftier price connotes that they are buying the best of the best, all but guaranteeing that they'll never suffer the indignity of being shown up at the valet stand. And while the notion that what is best is what's the most expensive is often correct, that isn't always the case.

Take this splashy Dragon Red Bentley Continental GT V8, for example. On the surface, this new model is just a cut-price coupe with four fewer cylinders and less horsepower, but make no mistake - this is the Thinking Man's Continental, not the Miser's.

Of course, word that the British automaker's latest should cost around 10 percent less than its 12-cylinder counterpart is unlikely to arch any impeccably manicured brows - we're going to go ahead and assume that the price differential won't really be of consequence to anyone with the wherewithal to shop for a Bentley. As a result, it will likely take a bit of individuality and pluck to show up at this season's Keeping Up With The Jones' Charity Ball in a GT V8.
