  • 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!

Today, this thing pops up: an Australian-built facet-crazy spud of a party van built on a Land Rover chassis.

Starting with the long-wheelbase Defender 130 frame, Land Rover apparently drew inspiration from Lockheed’s Have Blue program of the 1970s. After all, the vans of the era were all about modern conveniences (Television! Shag carpet! Water beds! Velour!) and outlandish exteriors. What was more bleeding-edge modern than Have Blue’s then-hypersecret stealth technology?

But Red Bull’s machine is no typical sin bin meant for after-hours relaxation with a sixer of High Life and Michael McDonald eight-tracks. It’s not meant to be shared with a fine fox or two, but rather with a teeming, partying crowd. To that effect, it features a pop-up DJ booth, presumably for bumping Chic, The Celibate Rifles, or Kraftwerk. Or maybe the works of one of those guys you see on Hakkasan billboards in Las Vegas. Oh, who are we kidding? Tiësto don’t van. But if he did . . .
