  • 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 27-foot Spirit of LeMons is a 1956 Cessna 310 body laid over a Toyota minivan chassis, originally built to compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons race in South Carolina. When the racing was done, its builder, Jeff Bloch - a.k.a. Speedycop - and The Gang of Outlaws decided to make it roadworthy. After adding paraphernalia like headlights and turn signals, voila, Bloch has a plane-car-thing he can drive on the street.

It isn't the first of Bloch-and-Gang's creations, the amateur mechanic and 17-year veteran of the Washington, D.C. police department having whipped up rides like the fastest street-legal P71-model Ford Crown Victoria in the country.

There's a video on the Spirit of LeMons below, a detailed piece on the creation of the Cessnoyota in Car and Driver, and you can check out Speedycop's site for a five-part video series on just how the thing was built.
