Club member Shane Shelton is hosting a cruise in on Saturday, May 19 in Downtown Benton. It's from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be a brief meeting around 6:00 p.m. to go over the results from the show and what we might adjust or change for next year. We will also discuss events for the coming months. The location is Main St. Station. It's right across the street from the Saline County Courthouse. There are restaurants near by. Bring your car!
It was H-U-G-E!!! What an incredible turnout for the first merged Wheelin' And Healin' Goodsell Truck Accessory car show in Jacksonville. There were 137 cars registered for judging, another 70 or so who chose to display only along with the APA's own Pontiacs on the show field. We want to thank all the sponsors, all the people who came out and supported us and especially Mark Goodsell for his help and dogged determination to get us to merge our shows. I think it worked out well for all of us, don't you? There's even more coverage of the event on our Facebook page. The link is over on the left side of the page here. You can click on the picture above for a gallery of images from the show.
We couldn't have asked for nicer weather for the "Dad's Ole Car Ain't What It Used To Be" Car Show at the NLR VA Center. We haven't got an accurate car count
yet but I'm sure we were around 130 great looking vehicles! Thanks for showing your rides to the Veterans and thank you to all of the Veterans that were participants, we salute you! Click the

One weekend and 400 miles later we've done another fun Poncho Power Tour. Things started out shaky with a broken brake line and an alternator
belt that rolled but we perservered. Saturday found us having lunch in historic Wilson, Arkansas and touring the Dyess Colony and Johnny Cash boyhood home.
Sunday started with yet another 180 degree turn after we blew past the world famous George Ray Drag Strip in Paragould. Then we meandered up to Old Davidsonville
state park, cut west across the top of the state and landed in Heber Springs for the traditional ice cream stop before splitting up and heading for home. It was
lots of fun and great people. I can't wait for next year. Pictures are as always.
When we heard that the classic movie "Smokey and The Bandit" was going to be on the big screen again we couldn't pass it up. A group of roughly
20 APA members trekked to the theater to take in Burt and Sally running from Jackie Gleason one more time! Mark Osbourne made the day by driving up
in his SE Trans Am and a replica of the car used by Gleason as Sheriff Buford T. Justice. We only grabbed a few pictures so click above for what we did.
What do you do when Mother Nature decides to give you a sunny, 80 degree afternoon in February? We know. Meet for pizza, have a short
lunch meeting and then hit the road for a cruise! Ice cream at the end makes it even better. Click on the picture above for more of what you missed.
