  • 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!

Car and Driver: Master of His Domain: $10 Million Worth of Jerry Seinfeld Porsches Headed to Auction

As a life-long Porschephile, comedian Jerry Seinfeld has spent decades assembling one of the most revered and comprehensive collections of Porsche automobiles in existence. Now, the comedian and host of the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee web series is letting a few of those prized vehicles trickle back into circulation, starting with a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, a 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster, and a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR.

Scheduled to cross the block at Gooding and Company’s Amelia Island Auction on March 11th, the pre-auction estimates for the trio reflect the recent surge in values of vintage Porsches. The 1955 550 Spyder, which according to a report in the Los Angeles Times is an is an unrestored vehicle with an original chassis, body, and engine, and only 10,300 miles on the odometer—not to mention the morbid fascination it elicits given its similarities to the car James Dean drove and died in—is expected to bring $5 to $6 million. The 1958 356 Carrera Speedster, reportedly one of only 151 models built, should net between $2 and $2.5 million. The 1974 911 Carrera IROC RSR which is, again according to the LA Times, one of 15 imported by Roger Penske for the International Race of Champions series, and was driven by Peter Revson, George Follmer, and Gordon Johncock, is estimated to sell for $1.2 to 1.5 million. Despite Seinfeld’s claim that he has “never bought a car as an investment,” the pre-auction estimates suggest that these three cars probably will turn out to be a very good investment indeed.

Exciting as it is to see Mr. Seinfeld cut loose three well-pedigreed examples, a representative at Gooding and Co. has informed us that this is just the tip of the iceberg, and a list of numerous additional auction-bound Porsches from the Seinfeld collection will be released in the first week of February. Those interested in getting up close and personal with the cars but just can’t work the Amelia Island event into their schedule are advised to attend Gooding’s annual Scottsdale, Arizona auction on January 27, where the three Porsches seen here will be on display.
