  • 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!

Offering new materials and color combinations, the program features a few pre-configured interior and exterior packages, hand-finished at the Magna Steyr prodiction site in Graz, Austria. Standalone options include several new wheel styles in black, and bodyside strips that can be executed with a carbon-fiber inlay on AMG versions. The Night Package, offered on other Mercedes-Benz cars, migrates to the G-wagen as well; it replaces several chrome and body-colored parts with black-metallic trim. Mercedes-Benz also is adding new colors to the portfolio, and the roof can now be painted black.


Above and beyond those options, “designo manufaktur” offers tailor-made solutions that can make the G-wagen essentially a unique vehicle. Customers willing to dole out a hefty premium can have their G painted any color they wish. Daimler is happy to build it, but they won’t take responsibility for the style. As the press release points out, it’s “a question of personal taste.”
