  • 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!

Welcome to the New Forever Pontiac

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the new and improved Forever Pontiac!

We upgraded the software that our forum runs and there is a lot of new goodies! Things are easier to do and function. As with upgrading to new software, please let us know in this topic if you find anything that is broken or not as it should. There are a few things that are still "rebuilding" and should soon finish (such as old posts and their formatting).

Just some of the new features:

  • Responsive layout (no more different desktop and mobile versions of the site, it is 1 experience!)
  • Update WYSIWYG editor for posting. See everything in real time!
  • Drag and drop uploading!
  • Mentions (@useranme will allow you to alert anyone)

Overall we are excited to welcome you to this and are in process of upgrading our "How-Tos" so please be patient.

Yup, it's a responsive theme so no longer are there any "desktop" or "mobile" modes. It's all one experience and will adjust depending on the screensize

Nice! Yeah, I see that too. Am looking into it, one of the icons isn't loading correctly.

Yeah, I can add another theme that doesn't have responsive but that means I have to manage 2 themes. We'll see :lol:

Cool, yup most things are different and you can build your own stream to configure what you want to see. I'll probably be changing it as time goes on but felt bad asituation we just announced it

Yep now I can reply lol, thanks Ringo. 

Only problem I have right now is Tapatalk doesn't seem to be working now. Sign-in service and trying to manually enter username and password isn't working. 

Also, will the shoutbox be returning?

Other than that Ghost already touched on some of the things I was thinking like the POTM picture.

Looks great overall!

Haven't installed Tapatalk just yet. It is known to cause issues so letting the forum software run on it's own right now till I can ensure everything is OK.

As this is our 2nd major change in the past 6 years we've been around, I understand that there may be hesitance. Overall though it is a great leap forward into technology and makes some things that were not so easy in the previous version, easier now. Give it a chance and I really think you'll like it ;)

It's not so much hesitation, as 'can't find shite'.  It's like when the Stacey David website did it's last upheaval.

Click "Unread Content" or in the navigation Activity -> Unread Content OR Activity -> All Activity

Same results but new look and feel plus different names as there is much more flexibility.

@Ghost and @Professur, if you do not like the current one, you can create your own. You can "edit" a default one by under the title clicking "Edit this Stream" and you can decide what you want to see. Alternatively, you can go to the "Activity" tab and click "My Activity Streams" and then click "Create New Stream" and select what you want to see in a stream.

Awesome job! Great design skills!  To have those kind of skills AND own a Pontiac... hmmm On a side note fellas, I was on my way to O'reilly yesterday and a G8 passed me and we both turned into O reilly. She was a 6.2 and sounded freakin wicked. (My first one to see up close - don't get out much) Might have a new wish for Xmas...?

      My Sunset Orange Metallic '02 Bird is finally undergoing it's much needed restoration.  FIrst order of business: replacing the OEM Wheels which are corroding with some new rims.
      Kudos to "Mufflers Brakes & More" in West Palm Beach who discovered the corrosion on the inside of the old wheels - and refused to charge me for their fix!

      IT is a great pleasure to be a "newbie" on this site as I am a long-time Pontiac enthusiast!  
      My first ownership began back in 1976 when as a High School Senior, I purchased a '64 LeMans from my neighbors.  Not a GTO by any means (flat 6, standard brakes), it still started me on my Pontiac journey- which included:
      1984 T-1000,  1986 Sunbird,  1988 Firebird (V6),   1996 Grand Prix GT,  2004 GTO (my buddy Mike and I were early adopters of the Monaro/GTO and Pontiac Performance Magazine actually did a photo story on us called "Blood Brothers" as we lived several houses apart), 
      current ride:  2002 Firebird.  Sunset Orange Metallic.   Apparently, it was one of the last couple of hundred produced and I thoroughly enjoy it!  Although I drive a german performance sedan during the work week, I intend to keep my 'Bird for a long long long time!  I never had a car with T-tops before this one and I love opening it up and cruising alongside the beach on FL A-1-A, going to the local "Cars & Coffee" once a month.

      Looking for a blower motor resistor for a 1973 Pontiac LeMans, US-built.  The car HAS air conditioning.  The blower control on the dash has FOUR settings, (lo - - hi).
      The resistor I have in the car now works on the lower three settings, but gives me nothing on 'hi.' 
      I think maybe it needs a very specific part from JUST a 1973 LeMans WITH A/C.
      Thanks in advance,
      Gary
