Thumbs up All Pontiac & GMC Truck Day 2019 is November 10 in Tucson, Arizona

All Pontiac & GMC Truck Day 2019 - Tucson, AZ
is the Arizona Chapter POCI's (Pontiac-Oakland Club, International) largest event, held every-other year in central Tucson.
YOU'RE INVITED, so save the date!

THIS EVENT IS FREE...
PRE-REGISTER NOW!

This event is a FREE, FUN, NON-JUDGED car and truck display and membership drive. It is open to both current club members and to prospective members and guests to display their "road warrior" (unfinished/project cars) and/or show-quality Pontiacs/Oaklands/GMC Trucks.

ALL MODELS / ALL YEARS of Pontiacs, Oaklands & GMC Trucks — regardless of condition or appearance, stock or modified — are welcomed here! Come hang out with fellow enthusiasts. No judging, no classes, no attitudes... Just relax and have fun in a picturesque, shaded parking area!

In past years, we've had some amazing Pontiacs and GMCs on display... Everything from a cool classic 1937 GMC Cabover COE Semi Truck to an electric-powered 1985 Trans Am to late-model Solstice and G8 GXPs ...plus plenty of full-size classic Pontiacs, Fieros, Grand Prixs, muscular GTOs, LeMans, Firebirds and more Wide-Trackin' excitement!

Default All Pontiac & GMC Truck Day 2019 UPDATE

Here's the latest on this Tucson event...

PRE-REGISTRATION: Our numbers are actually pretty darn impressive. Thank you to everyone who has pre-registered! If you haven't yet registered, you may do so on Sunday morning AFTER 10am when you arrive at the Viscount (soon to be the RAMADA by Wyndham) Hotel.

T-SHIRT sales (pre-orders) are NOW CLOSED. If you didn't already order one of our limited-edition shirts, you're out of luck. Sorry! All pre-orders will be available to pick up at the event.

PHOENIX CARAVAN: For those coming from the Phoenix area, don't forget about our big caravan planned for Sunday morning. Meet in the CASINO PARKING LOT at Wild Horse Pass at 8:30am. (Helpful Hint: If you can make it all the way to Tucson on your existing tank of gas, perhaps fill-up your tank in Tucson, as gas prices here are generally 5-10 cents per gallon cheaper. Do a search on www.gasbuddy.com for the best deals in your Zip Code or town.)

Details for that caravan and much more are found on our event's website: www.TucsonMotorama.com

ROAD CONDITIONS: Everything looks to be clear and open on the major highways leading into Tucson. For the latest in any road and construction updates, visit: https://www.az511.com/

OUR CHARITY: Please don't forget to bring along a couple of items for our FOOD DRIVE to benefit the Community Food Bank. (Helpful Hint: Go to your local Dollar Store and purchase a bag's worth of things like canned veggies, pasta, breakfast cereal, etc.) These donations are not required to participate, but are truly appreciated!

"Yeah, but... is MY Pontiac good enough to show?"

THREE SPECIAL AWARDS & RECOGNITIONS at 2:00pm:
There is NO CLASS JUDGING at this event, but we do single-out three noteworthy vehicles for special awards at 2:00pm:
