  • 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!

The workers piled tools and finished products high onto the roofs of regular passenger cars as they evacuated as quickly as possible.<br /><br />North Korea says the ongoing talks with its southern neighbor geared toward keeping the factory complex operational were "deceptive" given that the US and South Korean armed forces continue to practice joint drills nearby. <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/south korea/">South Korea</a>, meanwhile, was concerned that workers could be deprived of food or medicine if the situation continued to sour.<br /><br />The evacuation has placed the future of factories operated jointly by the two countries into question and marks the most significant casualty of the continued degradation of relations between the neighbors. It is unclear when or if the facilities will reopen.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/04/28/these-are-the-overloaded-cars-of-south-korean-workers-fleeing-no/">These are the overloaded cars of South Korean workers fleeing North Korea</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 28 Apr 2013 19:07:00 EST.

Yikes. But still, smart moving getting the civilians out of there. If Kim does throw a shit fit and engage South Korea in any sort of combat, North Korea would go after those factory workers as hostages.
