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!

See, the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/jaguar/f-type/">F-Type</a> had 380 horsepower and plenty of body fat to haul about. The Morgan, though, is nearly as powerful (367 ponies) and is <em>far</em> lighter, at around 2,200 pounds. The BMW, meanwhile, isn't quite the track star that the lightweight Triumph Street Triple R.<br /><br />You'll need to check out the video to see whether two wheels or four wheels will prevail. Have a look.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/28/morgan-plus-8-speedster-hits-track-versus-bmw-r-nine-t/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Morgan Plus 8 Speedster hits the track versus BMW R Nine T</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/28/morgan-plus-8-speedster-hits-track-versus-bmw-r-nine-t/">Morgan Plus 8 Speedster hits the track versus BMW R Nine T</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 28 Sep 2014 19:09:00 EST.
