  • 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!

In a video featuring the creation, Icon says the custom Sportster is "600 pounds of antiquated mechanics uncorked to maximum velocity with only guile and cunning to keep her in check" and it's "the most beautiful and ugly thing we've ever built." We have to agree. See Iron Lung for yourself in the first video below, and then head further down to watch Everything is Process, in which you'll find out the driving force behind Icon's custom bikes and see Iron Lung in the build process. Enjoy!
