in which they can enjoy their automobiles and each other. We welcome
any past, current or future owner of Pontiac automobiles to join
The next APA meeting will be at 1:00 PM on Sunday, August 9th at the Ray’s - 275 Elk Ridge Cove, Cabot. Brian will have drinks and snacks and asks that you bring for
the show: ideas, volunteerism, and door prizes.

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

The CAMS car club sponosored cruise in at Sonic in Maumelle is always a good time to visit with old friends and enjoy nice cars. The April
gathering was no different. Here are a few pictures of some of the cars and people who showed up. Thanks CAMS and Sonic.
Arkansas Street Machines hosted the annual show sponsored by Goodsell Truck and Accessories in Jacksonville. The turn out was very good and
a nice selection of Pontiacs were on the grounds as well. We wandered the show field and took a few pictures for you to enjoy. Good job ASM!
Kudos to the Cabot High School Cruzers who held their show Saturday. Mother Nature fought them every inch of the way but they prevailed! The show had
been postponed once due to snow and the rain date had a few soggy moments but the were not deterred. Thank you to the brave souls that came out to support
them and show your vehicles. I know they appreciated it. Brian Ray took a few pictures for us so click on the one above for the coverage.
We took a drive today. A few of us gathered up our late model Pontiacs (and that one Corvette) and headed for the hills of north central
Arkansas. The trees were just a bit past peak color but that didn't stop us from having fun. Other than getting behind every Ford F-150, sideways
hat wearing, handicapped license plate owning, slow poke driving old geezer in Arkansas, it was a good drive. Ah, even going slow in the twisty roads
is better than flatland driving. Click on the picture above for more from the cruise.
It was another successful show for the Arkansas Pontiac Association. We hosted 85 participants, no to mention about 20 club cars on the
grounds. We want to thank every one of you who attended and helped us raise the cash for our charity, the Clinical Nutrition department of
Arkansas Children's Hospital. Without you we can't do it. And we thank all our sponsors, listed at the top of this page. Another thanks to
all the club members who donate their time and work to make this a great show. Now, back to the cars! Click on the photo above for more
It was a great night with great weather so we joined CAMS for their monthly cruise in at the Maumelle Sonic. There were lots of great looking
cars and friendly folks there. Take a look at a few of the cars by clicking on the picture above for a gallery.
We are back from the Mother Road. Poncho Power Tour 2014 had 2 great days before the club members sprinted for home on the third in the face
of the oncoming storms. We managd to get through 4 states in our quest to drive a section of Route 66. Along the way we saw some cool stuff and made
some great new friends. Ramona, Al, Peggy, Angie and George are great people and welcome to cruise with us again any time. For those that missed it, we
took some pictures. Click on the one up above to go to the gallery.
