  • 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!

Introducing: Garage This or That!

Recommended Posts

Very happy to introduce a new feature to Forever Pontiac!



A new feature has been added to complement our Garage application! Calling it "Garage This OR That"! Basic principle of the application is that 2 random individual's cars (Pontiacs most likely :D) will be displayed and the user of the "game" has to chose between the two cars by clicking the "vote for this" or "vote for that" buttons (see screenshot below). The number of times a user is voted on, or win a "this or that" match, is recorded and the Top 10 are displayed at the bottom of the page.



I developed this today and there may be some little bugs so please feel free to report them in here but as a whole it is working and I hope you guys like it!



Make sure your Garage info is up-to-date as we are pulling the data straight from it :D. You can do so by going to the Garage by clicking the Garage link in the Navigation or going to: http://foreverpontiac.com/garage/



After your information is up to date, CHECK OUT GARAGE THIS OR THAT @: http://foreverpontiac.com/Garage-TOT/

When I vote on a "this or that" another one shows up. Do you just keep going or do they stop eventually? Also, I had one where the same car was in "this" and in "that".

It keeps going. The same car shouldn't be but the same person could potentially accidently have added their car twice, we ha e no control over that :(

Its weird, some cars seem to come up all the time and other almost never. Is it formulated so a users car is less likely to show up if they are voting? I haven't seen my Phoenix once but then again, I have seen the Super A 3 times haha

Nope, completely random. I did remove users with no pictures but that's it.

Not really but it was a toss up between that and a Farmall tractor. I picked the tractor.

Man there's some cool cars on here. And a few folks (looking your way Rob Johnson and PontiacGirl...) are very spoiled kids with too many choices to drive on a given day!

      My Sunset Orange Metallic '02 Bird is finally undergoing it's much needed restoration.  FIrst order of business: replacing the OEM Wheels which are corroding with some new rims.
      Kudos to "Mufflers Brakes & More" in West Palm Beach who discovered the corrosion on the inside of the old wheels - and refused to charge me for their fix!

      IT is a great pleasure to be a "newbie" on this site as I am a long-time Pontiac enthusiast!  
      My first ownership began back in 1976 when as a High School Senior, I purchased a '64 LeMans from my neighbors.  Not a GTO by any means (flat 6, standard brakes), it still started me on my Pontiac journey- which included:
      1984 T-1000,  1986 Sunbird,  1988 Firebird (V6),   1996 Grand Prix GT,  2004 GTO (my buddy Mike and I were early adopters of the Monaro/GTO and Pontiac Performance Magazine actually did a photo story on us called "Blood Brothers" as we lived several houses apart), 
      current ride:  2002 Firebird.  Sunset Orange Metallic.   Apparently, it was one of the last couple of hundred produced and I thoroughly enjoy it!  Although I drive a german performance sedan during the work week, I intend to keep my 'Bird for a long long long time!  I never had a car with T-tops before this one and I love opening it up and cruising alongside the beach on FL A-1-A, going to the local "Cars & Coffee" once a month.

      Looking for a blower motor resistor for a 1973 Pontiac LeMans, US-built.  The car HAS air conditioning.  The blower control on the dash has FOUR settings, (lo - - hi).
      The resistor I have in the car now works on the lower three settings, but gives me nothing on 'hi.' 
      I think maybe it needs a very specific part from JUST a 1973 LeMans WITH A/C.
      Thanks in advance,
      Gary
