  • 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!

An unassuming lad in a 208, busy minding his own business at a stoplight, is set upon by the eternally competing gang known for its outrageous rides and even more outrageous tactics. Even the little-regarded Private Meekly gets a front-and-center cameo.<br /><br />The ad was headed by Young &amp; Rubicam Brasil, directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet for <a href="http://www.partizan.com/">Partizan</a>, and was edited by Mr. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilly_Willy">Smedley</a>, who might or might not be another cartoon connection to Chilly Willy.

Whoever that ad agency is, someone in America needs to hire them! That was one of the best commercials I've seen in a while! Guess it can't hurt I loved that cartoon as a kid.
