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
above for a few shots of our day.
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 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.
