Pontiac of the Month

58Bonne's 1958 Bonneville

2019 June
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!

It's a car show only car and if the show isn't real local, it's a fill up each way of SUNOCO 93 ULTRA $$$$

That's why I have the G6 GXP and the Monte Carlo, for DD's, one for me and one for the wife :agreed:

On the highway :lol2:

and hey I was born 8 years after those '81 pictures :(

What's funny is I was 6 when my Monte Carlo was made :lol2: Weird to think that 10 years later I would buy it and drive it

You know what I find funny about cars like this? In its day some people use to look at it like we look at rice cars today. lol But now its looked at as pure awesomesauce and a true custom car & collector car.

Just a thought and something to think about. :lol2:

Did I just blow your mind? I think I may have. :agreed:

I had a 1990 GAGT Quad4 HO with Getrig 5 speed. It had factory 16" wheels. It was a rocket and I wish I still had it. In all the time I've been watching, I've only seen about 5 other 1990 GA's with the HO engine. It was a manual transmission only car so that kept a lot of people away. To bad it ate head gaskets :lol2:

Your car is gorgeous

THANK YOU...

Nope. There's maybe only four 3rd gen GA's by me. They're all haggard as all hell.

I just noticed , from your signature, that your into heavy metal. Check out my post in the "super touring car" thread, in recent posts with video's of Dan Fastuca.

The other day I didn't have time to read the whole article so I printed it out at work today and read it. I have to tell you its a great piece on your car and its history. Also I showed it to one of the other sales people, then one of the techs asked what he was reading and before you know it it made it all the way around the shop. Everyone agreed ;):bowdown::cheers:
