  • 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!

But they're made of carbon fiber and metal, not glass. That's where the car in this promo clip differs.<br /><br />Launched last month at the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/brazilian+grand+prix/">Brazilian Grand Prix</a> as part of Johnnie Walker's campaign against drunk driving, the clip features an F1 car recreated out of whisky tumblers to illustrate what can happen when liquor and driving are mixed into the same scenario.<br /><br />The CGI reproduction of the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/mclaren/">McLaren</a> car - which Johnnie Walker sponsors - is said to be accurate down to 3 millimeters, "filmed" at 300 frames per second in a process that took 100 gigabits of data to create. Whether it effectively proves the point or not, it's a cool clip to watch (complete with one <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mika+hakkinen/">Mika Hakkinen</a>), so check it out <a href="/2013/12/24/johnnie-walker-mclaren-broken-glass-video/#continued">below</a>.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/28/johnnie-walker-mclaren-broken-glass-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Johnnie Walker smashes a virtual F1 car made of glass</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/28/johnnie-walker-mclaren-broken-glass-video/">Johnnie Walker smashes a virtual F1 car made of glass</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 28 Dec 2013 19:01:00 EST.
