  • 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!

Released as a part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, which ends tomorrow, NHTSA's goal is to bring attention to child safety inside the car. According to the study, car crashes are a leading cause of death for children, and it has set up a website to make sure kids are buckled in properly. The helpful site lists car seat inspection stations as well as car seat recommendations for rear-facing, forward-facing and booster child seats. Both studies (from NHTSA and GM) are posted below.
