  • 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!

When we were doing may seats during the restoration, I noticed the headrests are not centered on the backs of the split bench. They are possitioned to the outside and not directly behind your head. Once we had the seats down to the frames I ground the reciever pockets off and welded them back in in the center. They look allot better now being centered.

Why were they so badly off in the first place? They came that way from the factory? An old upholsterer really screwed it up during a previous restoration?

I can't imagine something from a factory coming off like that unless GM had a special Stephen Hawking interior option.

Normally I'd agree with you. However, back in the days of "just run it" shop foreman and supervisors (in the 70s especially), quality was bad at times by today's standards. Gaps were terrible. So I suppose that a substitute working filling in for someone who is sitting in a deer blind during firearm deer season, yeah, I think it could happen. I am just not certain why it got past the final inspection or repair stations like that though. Or if it was the work of a hack interior restoration done after the car was built and before Alrob got the car.
