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!

Stuttgart, home to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/porsche/">Porsche</a> and <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/">Mercedes-Benz</a> , has another business in the city could show off a little of the country's perceived national character: Mr. Wash. The world's largest carwash, Mr. Wash is so spectacular that its <a href="http://online.wsj.com/articles/germans-praised-for-their-autos-love-a-good-carwash-even-more-1410230469?tesla=y">arching two-story business (pictured above) is highlighted in a new video</a> from <em>The Wall Street Journal</em>.<br /><br />Mr. Wash doesn't really do anything special when it comes to cleaning vehicles; it just does its job on a massively industrial scale. At full capacity, the business can wash 400 vehicles an hour, or about half a million a year.<br /><br />Prices seem reasonable, too, with a range between 6 and 20 euros ($7.50-$26) depending on what services customers want. On the bottom level there are even vacuums and cleaning machines for owners to use if they are real neat freaks. The Stuttgart location of Mr. Wash has a gas station, and it can also do oil changes. Check out the video to see how Germans keep their cars sparkling clean.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/10/bear-witness-to-the-worlds-largest-carwash/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Bear witness to the world's largest carwash</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/10/bear-witness-to-the-worlds-largest-carwash/">Bear witness to the world's largest carwash</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 10 Sep 2014 20:00:00 EST.
