  • 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!

Factor in three engines and two transmissions, and Cooper derivatives number in the dozens. Now consider that Mini’s home market of Great Britain gets everything we get, plus four additional powerplants. Should we be jealous? In some cases, no—specifically, the pair of gas- and diesel-powered Mini One models, whose engines are so weak they aren’t worthy of the Cooper name. The two more powerful diesels found in the base D and sportier SD models, though, are somewhat more interesting. We had the opportunity to experience both, in the form of a Cooper D Clubman and a Cooper Hardtop SD 4-Door hatchback (which Mini calls 5-Door in its home market), while in the U.K. for the unveiling of the Mini Vision Next 100 concept.
