  • 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!

After one banked turn was built, it was evident there weren’t enough funds for such a track, so it was completed as a 15-turn, 3.7-mile road-racing circuit with one wicked-fast banked corner; it opened in 1965. After a double fatality in 1974, the banked portion was eliminated, and the rest of the track was reconfigured as an eight-turn, 2.7-mile course. Beyond hosting a pair of landmark Formula 1 races in 1976 and 1977, Fuji had significance for many racing fans as the first real-world racetrack they learned by heart while playing the Pole Position arcade game in the 1980s or, more recently, the Gran Turismo series of video games. The track was extended to 10 turns in 1982 and 12 corners in 1993, the layout it had when Toyota bought it in 2000. A revamped 16-turn track, now 2.8 miles long, opened in 2005; F1 action briefly returned in 2007. READ MORE ››
