  • 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!

Have you ever wondered not just what it takes to slam automobiles against obstacles, but how to record it all accurately? A new video from the institute goes behind the scenes into its video production capabilities from the initial crash to final video editing.<br /><br />The center's crash hall is designed specifically for high quality photography. It has a custom lighting array to produce diffused light that prevents hard shadows. The IIHS also uses a networked array of slow-motion digital cameras, which it refers to as digital imagers, that all begin filming at the same time when a test begins.<br /><br />It's a fascinating and scientific process that aims to set a world standard in crash testing. <a href="/2014/05/02/iihs-crash-testing-behind-the-scenes-video/#continued">Scroll down</a> to watch some high-quality shots of cars getting smashed and gain a better understanding of what the IIHS does.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/02/iihs-crash-testing-behind-the-scenes-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>IIHS shows you how they capture crash-test footage</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/02/iihs-crash-testing-behind-the-scenes-video/">IIHS shows you how they capture crash-test footage</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 02 May 2014 20:00:00 EST.
