any past, current or future owner of Pontiac automobiles to join
The 15th annual Wheelin' And Healin' car show was a lot of fun and we want to thank all the people who came out to register their cars. If you don't know already,
the APA presents this show to raise money for Arkansas Children's Hospital, specifically their Clinical Nutrition department. This year we had a special award for the
50th anniversary of the GM F-body. The winner was Curtis Kirby in his 1968 Camaro. Best in show went to Dan Slingbaum in his 1955 Chevy and Best Pontiac was garnered by
Ronald Hatch with his 1967 Tempest. We registered 73 cars this year. Come join us next year and let's get this show up over the 100 car mark! Click on the photo above for
a gallery of images from the show.
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.
It was another food and laugh fest during the annual Arkansas Pontiac Association Christmas Party. After a great pot luck meal the crew moved on to playing a game called "where are you going"
and then moved on to the highlight of the evening, the dirty Santa gift swap. It goes without saying that the rubber chickens returned and have found new homes for the coming year. We all look forward
to the next chapter in the life of the rubber chicken! Click on the photo to go to the gallery.
I don't know how many Poncho Power Tours we've done now but this one was one of the best. Thanks to Marshall Johnson for laying out the plan. We drove up to Branson Friday night and spent Saturday
going to a festival and car show. The best part of Saturday was the drive back via some backroads we found. We departed Branson on Sunday morning and pulled off a poker run along the way. New members Scotty and
Blain Heaslet took home the traveling gumball machine trophy. The group split up at Harrison with some folks heading home but a few intrepid souls still had some driving to do and Scenic 7 was calling our name.
Overall, it was a great time. We took some pictures. Click on the one up above to go to the gallery.
