  • 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!

For the ultimate doomsday prepper, let us officially introduce you to the Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. Not only was this ATV inspired by the MV850 military vehicle, but it truly is an all-terrain vehicle with its trick non-pneumatic tires.

Starting at $14,999, you too can ride the same ATV as our military - right down to the single-speed transmission, steel exoskeleton and, of course, the TerrainArmor tires. According to Polaris, these tires can take a direct hit from a .50-caliber round and still travel 350 miles or drive 1,000 miles after running over a railroad spike.

The Sportsman WV850 H.O. was designed to be a rugged workhorse with specs that include a 1,500-pound towing capacity, a 3,500-pound winch and an 11.75-gallon fuel tank. This ATV goes on sale next month, but it will only be available in "very limited quantities." Scroll down for some videos of the Sportsman WV850 H.O. in action as well as an official press release.
