  • 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!

Motorcycle sidecars are a fairly rare sight on American roads, sad as it may be. What's rarer is dogs in motorcycle sidecars. Yes, it seems that when we take our four-legged friends on the road, they're tucked safely into their cages or strapped into some convoluted doggy harness. But some intrepid motorcyclists are combining their love of the open road with their love of their dogs, and a pair of independent filmmakers are documenting the whole thing.

Sit Stay Ride: The Story of America's Sidecar Dogs is the project of Eric Ristau and Geneva Liimatta, a husband-and-wife film team that's aiming to travel across the country and document riders that enjoy bringing their canines along for the ride. Using a set of "doggles" (doggy goggles), the dogs ride shotgun in the sidecar. Think of it as this, only with motorcycles.

"Seeing a dog in a sidecar brings a smile to everyone's face," said Liimatta. "Our film explores the relationship between sidecar dogs and their motorcycle-riding humans. The dogs and humans we've met while shooting this project are amazing characters. You'll love them all."

The film is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for production expenses, find different subjects for the film and help promote animal welfare organizations.

"Many of the dogs featured in this film were adopted from the Humane Society and other incredible organizations," said Ristau. "This is an important message we're trying to send. We want people to adopt dogs and other animals, and also to support agencies that find homes for these pets."

We've included the Kickstarter video from the pair, which details the project, as well as an official press release. Take a look below for both of those things, and then head over to the donation page and chip in.
