  • 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!

RSS Driver held in SXSW fatal accident could get death penalty

Rashad Charjuan Owens, the driver who crashed through police barricades and into a crowd of people celebrating the SXSW festivities in Austin, Texas, killing two people and injuring dozens more, has been charged with capital murder and may get the death penalty. Owens may also face multiple counts of aggravated assault by vehicle after hitting pedestrians, a woman on a moped, a man on a bicycle, a taxi and a van.

The 21-year-old had been driving the wrong way down a one-way street in an attempt to evade police, who had tried to pull him over on suspicion of drunk driving. After the accident, Owens attempted to flee on foot before being captured by police wielding Tasers. His bond sits at $3 million, according to CNN.

Witnesses on the scene have described the harrowing event as "like something out of a movie." Videos, some graphic, have been uploaded to YouTube and social media, making this accident stand out in the minds of Americans. A video report from CNN can be seen here, but as we said, some footage may be disturbing.
