  • 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!

And this was undoubtedly the highlight.<br /><br />Bearing the chassis number 0384 AM, this 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus has a storied racing history, competing that year in such events as the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/le+mans/">24 Hours of Le Mans</a>, the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mille+miglia/">Mille Miglia</a> and the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/silverstone/">Silverstone</a> endurance race, where the late <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/17/jose-froilan-gonzalez-ferraris-first-f1-race-winning-driver-p/">Jos&eacute; Froil&aacute;n Gonzalez</a> drove it to victory. One of only five made, the 375 Plus packed a 4.9-liter V12 with 330 horsepower under aluminum <em>barchetta</em> bodywork by Pininfarina. It was subsequently owned by Kleenex scion Jim Kimberly, trading hands between owners on both sides of the Atlantic and was the subject of a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2010/08/17/npr-fight-erupts-over-ownership-of-stolen-1954-ferrari-375-pl/">legal dispute over its ownership</a> four years ago.<br /><br />With the dispute now resolved and after heated competition between two bidders, the Ferrari finally sold for &pound;10.7 million, equivalent to $18.2 million at today's rates and accounting for nearly half of the day's sales totals. Other highlights included a 1902 De Dietrich 16-HP "Paris-Vienna" Rear-Entrance Tonneau and a a '75 <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lamborghini+countach/">Lamborghini Countach</a>, each of which sold for around $1.7 million - the latter eclipsing the example that Bonhams also <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/09/lamborghini-countach-periscopica-bonhams-record-auction/">recently sold</a> for $1.2 million.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/03/1954-ferrari-375-plus-18-million-record-goodwood-auction/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>1954 Ferrari 375-Plus sells for record $18 million at Goodwood</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/03/1954-ferrari-375-plus-18-million-record-goodwood-auction/">1954 Ferrari 375-Plus sells for record $18 million at Goodwood</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 03 Jul 2014 17:14:00 EST.
