  • 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!

Among its indignities, the engine has been covered in rat droppings, and the extending side panel has frozen into position.

Getting this faded movie star ready for the limelight again is going to take a ton of work, and it all seems even crazier when you learn that the owner eventually wants to live in it. In speaking with Autoblog, Rutkowski says that the owner currently lives in Switzerland but visits California often. Eventually, he wants to reside in the RV when in the US.

Rutkowski plans to release a new part of the RV's restoration every two weeks for the next few months and still keep up with his usual Aficionauto videos. Figuring out whether this The Lost World star can actually be saved should be quite a process to watch.
