  6. Was there Saturday. Bigger and better than ever. So many absolutely beautiful Pontiac. Been going to this event from the beginning. Only missed 4 times. Firehawk club, tempest club half dozen Can Ams.....Fell in love with a black 69 GTO with white interior, 4spd, hideaways. All stock and absolutely perfect. He wouldn't sell it for any price. Great time. If you love Pontiacs, its a must go. p
  7. I have a lot of friends heading down there this weekend. I wish I could go but I am heading to Hilton Head SC instead. I have not been back there since 2004. I had just grenaded my old original 455 that came with Lucy, so I was on a serious parts hunt back then. I hope everyone that goes has a good time and great weather.

  9. Motor City POCI show -July 22

    Surely caught my eye and JUSTA for the rarity, drew me in like a bug. Wish I had more shots. He had company info in the windows, but I was trying to keep my camera dry. I have seen this car many times over the years, never spoke to the owner.
  10. Motor City POCI show -July 22

    Thanks for the pictures anyway JUSTA. I was talking to some club members at the club picnic yesterday that attended the show. I was told they had a total of 60 cars show up before the day was over. Yeah, I heard about the wash out. It was pouring all day in Ohio too. Both of Jacob's final two baseball games were cancelled too. JUSTA - did you get anymore pictures of the Grand Am El Camino? I am curious to see what sort of license plate the guy has on it. It was my understanding that he bought it on a Bill of Sale meaning (in theory at least) this car is not legal on roads and highways as it has an experimental car. Yes this is one of the two G.A. El Camino study cars that Pontiac Engineering did in '79 and '80. The other one is in the Heritage Collection. This car, in theory, was supposed to have been crushed. I am not sure what the story is of how he got it away from Pontiac.
  11. Motor City POCI show -July 22

    Sad to hear it was a washout. Too bad. Great Ponchos though that showed!
  12. Motor City POCI show -July 22

    Sorry to say, it was a wash out. With my roads all mudd and rain all morning I left my cars home. Bought an entry for the GTO anyway to help support their charity and help cover their cost to put on the show. Bakers is an awesome place to hold a show. Stayed til about 11am and it was still raining. There were about 30 cars that braved the weather and they were hoping for more as the weather broke.
  13. Motor City POCI show -July 22

    Here's a Calendar even if it helps:
  14. The second SE Michigan Pontiac-Oakland-GMC show of the season is this weekend, July 22 at Baker's Inn in Milford, Mi. It is being hosted by the Motor City POCI chapter. See their website for more information. www.motorcitypoci.com
  15. Great pictures, JUSTA! LOTSA great Pontiacs!
  16. They had no place to go. I asked if they knew about Camp Liberty (show at Kensington) same day and they did not. Camp Lib also didn't contact me for CRO supplies this year. Also canceled the Vball tournie for the veterans this spring I always play in. They had an awesome display of guns/ gear and equipment. While setting up, a guy was carrying the manikin and I said, WOW no dummy left behind. He was crackin up so bad he almost dropped it. Then had to wonder if that was BOB from Shawns Vega on ST Outlaws.
  17. What was the military display all about?
  18. As you can see, I walked around very early after setting up the CRO tent and missed many of the cars after they arrived. Was in a hurry to walk through the swap meet.
  19. Beautiful day for a carshow. Setup CRO North, with the help of Notallthere, Registered with he help of Mrs Notallthere. Hung out with JustaG6 and Joe, saw so many old friends. Picked up a few small things from the swap meet, (no matching speedo gauges.....) thats another thread. Joe gave me the biggest smile of the day with a 1980 Mich L plate with Steve 1 on it!!! Said he saw it on Ebay and could not let it pass. Thank you buddy! Joe is thinkin about hittin a couple legs of the Power tour. Lotta driving. Glad to hear he finally got a spare for the Lemans. JustaG6 took a 3rd place award and the rest of us sadly did not. Was moving the GTO over by everyone else for a group shot after the show, and it wouldn't start. Found a bad wire off the back of my ignition switch, got it started and headed home, so there is no group shot of cars or GUESS WHO? Missed Frosty, guess Notallthere only acts like that when your around. We did take our eyes off him for a minute and he got Gnomed... OH MAN. Quick turnaround and directly off to an open house, it's late so I'll hitcha with a couple teaser pic's.
