A Tribute to Pontiac
A quick overview of Pontiac Motor Division, from the first Pontiac-branded car built in 1926 and its beginnings as an offshoot of the Oakland car company, to the final '09 and '10 cars. Also features some commercial and movie footage in which Pontiacs played an important role.
My first car was and is a 1985 Pontiac 6000 STE, and I want a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT very badly someday, so the brand's elimination came as a shock and a huge disappointment to me. I hope Pontiac may one day return, but for now, this video is my farewall salute to a great brand with a great history. Enjoy.
Thanks to all people who supplied the photographs and video clips. A few of the pictures are my own, all others have been borrowed from others and I take no credit for their creation. All content is property of its respective owners.

I'd like to make a big thank you to J16FOX2 for his help in making this video. Please check out his videos. Thanks!
Pontiac Tribute Day - June 1, 2010
As a part of their bankruptcy restructuring, GM inexplicably jettisoned Pontiac, its third best-selling nameplate. The Wide-Track Division officially ceases to exist Monday, May 31.
The next day, Tuesday, June 1, is Pontiac Tribute Day. If you have a Pontiac, take it out of the garage and drive it that day, so people can see Pontiac's illustrious history in the form of cars like the Torpedo, Silver Streak, Star Chief, Safari, Bonneville, Grand Prix, GTO, Firebird, Fiero, Solstice and G8.
And be sure to buy a Tribute Day decal for your rear window. You can buy them at www. pontiactributeday.com or your local Pontiac Owner's Club (of course you belong to one). The Fiero Store's website is:
The Pontiac Tribute
Please visit: http://forums.pontiac-tribute.com , join us and share your fond memories and dedications Pontiac served us in our little community. Mourn the death of once a great make and make a little union of Pontiac fans. This is my very first shot in making the video, so go easy on it. Rather than using the moody/sad songs/musics, I have gone with the more up-tune music to re-live the great eras that Pontiac was on, when it was an icon for perfomance. I know I left out a lot of models here, but I only included the AMERICAN Pontiacs. No imports, or blatent Chevy rebadges of the recent. So you won't find the imports like Vibe, recent GTO, G3, G8 that are just an imports, or the blatent Chevy rebadges like G5, Torrent. Only the true North American Pontiac that has the unique Pontiac Soul. Since this is my very first video, I admit the quality is amaturistic at best and some pics are blurry to really see, but, please, go easy on it. I planned to make a longer, improved version soon.
Thanx. Pontiac may have died, but it's soul, performance and excitement always lives on, in my heart and in every loyal Pontiac fans!!!!
The Pontiac Tribute Version 2
This is the longer version of my Pontiac Tribute slideshow vid I made a while back. I am still pretty new in making the vid, and I admit it isn't perfect and have some flaws, so please, go easy on it. As before, you won't find the cars that are blatent re-badges of other divisions, like G5, Torrent, and you won't find any imports like Firefly, G3, G8, recent LeMans, Vibe, recent GTO, and others, just the pure NORTH AMERICAN Pontiacs that has its own soul, legend, own styling(or re-skinned in any way) and its own excitement including some concepts and classics.
Please enjoy it, and again, go easy on it. Also, if you want to share the memories and discuss about once the great performance brand, and mourn the death of it, please join us at:
and re-live the once great American Icon that has just fallen.
1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 5.0 Litre 4 speed - SOLD!
As you probably know, the 3rd generation of Firebirds took flight in 1982 with 3 models including the Trans Am which is the high performance Firebird and was completely restyled, more aerodynamic and that year voted one of the 12 "Best Cars in the World" and also won "Best Sports GT Category in it's price range".
This 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a great strong running car. Equipped with a 5.0 Litre V-8 OHV, 4 speed, it has approximately 88K miles. Although the paint is a little weak, the interior is very good, the body is straight and it runs GREAT!
There are also T-Tops, the rear end has been replaced with a Camaro 5-speed posi-traction rear end, the power steering pump was rebuilt, the radiator was replaced, the window weather stripping on doors was replaced, there are new front tires, the side shifting plate on transmission was repaired and inspected (Stock Saginaw) and of course the hatchback (which has new cylinders), turbo wheel covers, dual mirrors, rear deck spoiler, heavier suspension package that includes a "quicker" steering ratio, and full instrumentation including speedometer, trip odometer, tachometers, gauges for oil pressure, voltage, fuel level and coolant temp, etc. With the seats laid down, there is also a lot of room for your gear.

Just a compilation of all Pontiac has done for us through out the years.
Long Live Pontiac even if only in out memories
1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula Walkaround [HD]
I have nothing new so here's a video of my so-called "clunker" with the new camcorder.
Currently has a small vacuum leak due to a rotted EGR tube gasket so it sets off a Code 32; but it is still drivable. New gasket came today and will fix next week.
