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!

Car and Driver: High-Speed Road Trip, Anyone? Cannonball Run Ambulance Clone For Sale on Ebay

Recommended Posts

Dodge Sportsman Cannonball Run Clone


Car geeks over a certain age, and a good many under it, have a soft spot for the epic Cannonball Run races and the movies that depicted them. And so when a van like this Dodge Sportsman in Transcon Medi-vac ambulance livery that is a near-exact double for the van driven by Car and Driver veteran Brock Yates in the 1979 Cannonball Run, and later used in the movie of the same name, goes up for sale on E-bay, we can’t let it go unappreciated.

While this van lacks the 440 Wedge V-8 of the Cannonball original, using a 360-cubic-inch V-8 instead—with, alas, only a single entry point for fuel (the original van had four fuel access points for fast refueling)—the cosmetics are pretty flawless. That is, until you open the door and see the green sills and the Skoal sticker above the driver’s head. The green plaid interior is in great condition, though, even if it’s not quite ready to take on patients suffering from anything more serious than, uh, carsickness.


As we write this, the price is hovering just under $4000, which seems fair for any well-preserved 1970s Dodge van, especially one that would bound to be a hit with the many fans of the 1981 flick. And as our buddy Jeff at Barnfinds.com says, it would give anyone seeking to build an exact replica—Gero Hoscheck, are you listening?—a great start.
