of the Month

  • 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!

We say kinda because while Finnegan is the primary host for <em>Hot Rod Garage</em>, Freiburger plays guest host and the new show starts off by wrenching on the <em>Roadkill</em> Draguar project car.<br /><br />What's the Draguar? It's a 1974 <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/jaguar/">Jaguar</a> XJ12 that's about to be force-fed a 383-cubic-inch <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/">Chevrolet</a> long-block engine with tidbits like Holley carbs, a Weiand 6-71 Roots blower and a "custom WillBlow transmission," all good for about 700 horsepower. After that Finnegan gets into swapping parts on his wife's El Camino and some TIG welding lessons.<br /><br />You can check out the first episode <a href="/2014/05/23/hot-rod-garage-series-premieres-700hp-jaguar-xj-video/#continued">below</a>. And in case you're worried, no, <em>Roadkill</em> isn't going away.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/23/hot-rod-garage-series-premieres-700hp-jaguar-xj-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Hot Rod Garage series premieres with 700-hp small-block Jaguar XJ</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/23/hot-rod-garage-series-premieres-700hp-jaguar-xj-video/">Hot Rod Garage series premieres with 700-hp small-block Jaguar XJ</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 23 May 2014 20:00:00 EST.
