to the home of Arkansas's premier Pontiac car club. Our objective
is simple. We offer Pontiac car enthusiasts a family environment
in which they can enjoy their automobiles and each other. We welcome
any past, current or future owner of Pontiac automobiles to join
We had a rather damp Poncho Power Tour this year. I think we could sell our services as drought busters with this cruise. A little
water didn't slow us down. We had several stops at museums, including Arkansas Museum of Natural Resources, Four States Auto Museum and Old
Washington State Park so we had inside time between the driving stretches and it worked out great! Thank you Ed and Beth Helmstetter for
all the planning and work on the route. We took some pictures. Click on the one up above to go to the gallery.
Another huge thank you to all the participants and sponsors who came to the Maumelle Community Center yesterday and helped us have
another successful Wheelin' And Healin' car show. Without your support we couldn't do the charitable work for Arkansas Children's Hospital's
Clinical Nutrition Department. I'd also like to thank our hard working members who bust their tails all year long to pull this show togehter.
We registered over 80 cars and hope to have a good sized donation for ACH thanks to your generousity. Here are a few pictures from the show.

The club tried something new, a garage tour of a few members. We made five stops and found out all kinds of cool things about the members on the stop. We saw
everything from modern fuel injection on a vintage Pontiac, a car collection with a real General Lee movie car, rare factory Pontiac parts, an incredible collection
of die-cast automobilia and some vintage parts and cars from the heyday of drag racing. Special thanks to Robert O'Neal for the idea and organizing it and more thanks to his
wife Dora for setting up the cookout at the end.
We had a great cruise via highway 70 to Carlisle. We made an unscheduled stop in Lonoke to check out the restored train depot. After lunch
at Nick's BBQ we wandered over to the Carlisle airport, scene of some stiff drag racing back in the 60's and 70's. That stop was made much
more enjoyable due to the stories from Linda Sullivan who was a regular spectator and Robert O'Neal who actually raced there. Click on the picture
