About Second Life:
Second Life is an online virtual world populated by hundred's of thousands of users from all over the world. Once you enter you'll discover countless ways to make your mark and interact with others. There's entertainment, both bawdy and sublime, games to fit any taste and limitless ways to spend your time.

Like the real world, Second Life has an economy that's created by its users and based on Linden dollars. The content you create is your property and you're free to sell it to others. Millions of Linden dollars trade hands every month and they can all be exchanged for real money.
The world is filled with creations both large and small, built by users just like you. A short walk reveals homes, retail spaces, gigantic artworks, and shapes that defy the laws of gravity and logic. With limitless space and imagination, the sky is no longer the limit!

One of the best points about Second Life is the diversity of the population. People come from all over the world and their differing interests is evident from the types of things they build right on down to the way they look. With such a large group of folks it's a certainty that you'll find people who dig the same stuff you do. You'll be making new friends in no time!

Pontiac has claimed 96 acres as our own and designed the most realistic car ever developed for this world, the Pontiac Solstice GXP.
