  • 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!

So finally getting around to that rear diff and gear change, removing old rusty headers and replacing with a new set of ceramic coated headers, some small projects as well like correct stainless trans cooler lines, a neutral safety switch/back up light switch, paint the driveshaft while I have it out, repair the windshield washer pump, just nagging little loose ends that mess with my OCD are finally going to be addressed and rectified.

I installed a K&N reusable air filter in my 2018 Chevy Colorado. I prefer to use these reusable high(er) flowing air cleaners over the stock paper ones. This filter cost me $53 from Summit Racing. I will have it paid for in about 50k miles / or about 3 air filter replacements. You just take them out, wash them out, re-oil them and put them back.I ran a K&N in my '08 GMC Envoy Denali for over 100k miles. My '04 Chevy Avalanche had one for 90k miles. I use these in Lucy and the Trans Am too. I need to get one for the Roadmaster.

I have finally lost count of the half assed shade tree short cuts I have discovered on this car. Example: electric choke on carb was tapped into the windshield wiper power wire. The trans kick down module was wired but never connected. The neutral safety switch/back up light switch in place but never wired. I've never had full throttle because the gas pedal was snapped in half behind the pedal. Body mounts missing. Piss poor welding everywhere on the exhaust system. Wrong shifter cable and linkage bent to make it work this list goes on and on. We won't even get into the rear end swap where half the parts are Chevy and half of them Pontiac. New axles are 5/8" too long and the Chevy pinion won't match up to the Pontiac yoke and I've gone thru purchasing and returning 3 different U Joint adapters to get the driveshaft to bolt up to the rear diff yoke. Listen folks, If you can't restore a car correctly go flip used cars and stay away from classics. The use of brown lamp cord under the dash and drywall screws to hold in your tail light lenses is NOT restoration.
