Pontiac of the Month

360Rocket's 1970 GTO

2019 March
of the Month

  • 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!

Lutz, whose agreement runs three years, will report to President and CEO Rick Wagoner." data-credit="Wieck" data-mep="51423" src="http://hss-prod.hss.aol.com/hss/storage/adam/1e427d243f6929fca24d009553830029/LUTZ-Bob.jpg" /></a><br /><br />Every car guy's favorite executive, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/bob+lutz/">Bob Lutz</a> has had a long history in top positions at major automakers. Following service as a Marine Corps pilot and a few years as the top sales and marketing exec at <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/bmw/">BMW</a>, Lutz went on to hold high positions at <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ford/">Ford</a>, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/chrysler/">Chrysler</a> and most recently <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/gm/">General Motors</a>. But he's been keeping busy since leaving GM over three years ago. He's since gone on to chair EV startup <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/via/">Via Motors</a>, start up <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/vl/">VL Automotive</a> with Gilbert Villereal to remake the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/fisker/karma/">Fisker Karma</a>, and offers the benefit of his experience through his consultancy Lutz Communications. But that's not the end of the road for Maximum Bob.<br /><br />His latest appointment was just announced by <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/katzkin/">Katzkin</a>, a company known for transforming vehicle interiors. Katzkin retrofits existing vehicles for private customers, but is also often called upon by major automakers and tuners alike to reupholster show cars. In his new capacity, Lutz will serve as Senior Advisor to Katzkin, helping it expand its reach and solidify its position in the $30 billion annual automotive customization market. A far cry from the board rooms of Detroit's Big Three, but at 81 years old and still flying fighter jets for kicks, Lutz deserves to take it a little easy these days. Easy for Bob, anyway.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/11/bob-lutz-senior-advisor-katzkin-official/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Bob Lutz signs on as Senior Advisor to interior specialist Katzkin</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/11/bob-lutz-senior-advisor-katzkin-official/">Bob Lutz signs on as Senior Advisor to interior specialist Katzkin</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 11 Dec 2013 08:31:00 EST.
