  • 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!

After a series of seven small earthquakes and heavy rains, a scenic coastal road has collapsed into a vaguely road-shaped pile of rubble.<br /><br />The toll road, which is popular among tourists traveling between Ensenada and Tijuana, fell into chasm that was caused by a landslide from the quakes and rain. Nearly 900 feet of road was damaged in the collapse according to <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbRiP8PSegg"><em>Euronews</em></a>, while <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/29/world/americas/mexican-highway-collapse/index.html?hpt=hp_t3">CNN</a> is reporting a chasm 40-feet deep and 200-feet long formed from the landslide. A cement truck was caught in the collapse, but the driver managed to escape before it plunged into the Pacific. Miraculously, there were no other injuries. According to CNN, Mexican authorities are expecting the road will take nearly a year to repair.<br /><br />We have three videos below. The first is from CNN, and shows the news report on the road, while the other two show the damage from a variety of angles.
