What's better than a car show with nearly 200 great looking rides? One that also gets 10 of our furry canine friends new homes and raises several thousand dollars to benifit the Jacksonville Friends of the Animals, that's what!
Yep, I'm talking about the APA/Goodsell Truck Accessories Wheelin' and Healin' car show. There were 146 cars registered for judging and another 42 who signed in for display only. Thousands of spectators walked the show field and ogeled the
beautiful selection of vehicles. We wish we had a trophy for everyone who attended because in our eyes you're all winners. Thank you to all our sponsors, members and especially to Mark Goodsell who worked tirelessly to promote the
show and grow it into the spectacle it has become. Click the photo above for a gallery of about 175 photos we took during the show.
The Cabot High Cruzers hosted their 10th annual car show and we were there. What started as a small show from the high school car club that was founded by APA's own Eric Ray, has grown to the point that nearly 150 cars were registered to be judged. That's something to be awfully proud of. As usual, we took a few photos to share with you. pardon our leaning towards the Pontiacs but you know, that's what we do here. Enjoy the photos.
Roughly 100 cars came to Fort Roots VA hospital in NLR to join us for the Dad's Old Car event, an annual cruise in for the benefit of the veterans. The weather was iffy early in the day but the clouds cleared and the rain stayed away. It always warms our hearts to see the veterans out enjoying
the car hobby just like we do. We can't wait for next year!
Despite monsoon like conditions members Chris Ritter and Chris Lube attended the recent Pontiac Southern Nationals in Dallas sponsored by the Dallas Area Pontiac Asssociation club. Held at the Cavenaugh Flight Museum in Addison, Texas, the cars were protected by being in an aircraft hanger so the rain
didn't slow down the fun. Both garnered awards and Lube came home with the coveted "Best In Show" trophy!
When member Chris Lube saw that the Northwest Arkansas Pontiac club was headed for the Cliff House Cafe on a cruise we couldn't resist meeting them there. Any reason for taking a cruise on scenic Arkansas highway 7 is reason enough for us to fire up the hot rods and make a run. Click on the image above for pictures from our fun day.
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.
