Thumbs up Tucson, AZ ... ALL PONTIAC & GMC TRUCK DAY 2017... Kickoff for Pontiac Week in AZ!

All Pontiac & GMC Truck Day 2017 is the kickoff event for PONTIAC WEEK in Arizona.

Hosted by the Arizona Chapter of the Pontiac-Oakland Club, International in central Tucson.

This event is a FREE, fun, NON-JUDGED car and truck display and membership drive. It is open to both club members and to prospective members alike 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 a 2007 Solstice GXP ...plus plenty of full-size classic Pontiacs, Fieros, Grand Prixs, muscular GTOs, LeMans, Firebirds, Trans Ams and more Wide-Trackin' excitement!

I never knew there was such a thing as an Arizona POCI.

Reading through all that, I haven't seen any mention anywhere else about the Pontiac Heaven event Nov 12th. No mention of it on here anywhere, it's not on Cruisin' Arizona or Arizona Car Show websites either, haven't heard a thing on the radio. I've talked to some people that really aren't sure if it's even going to happen. His website had no updates on it as of a couple days ago when I checked.
If it is happening, need to get the word out ASAP everywhere as it's only less than 5 weeks away. Any fliers made? I'd be happy to pass them out at all the local cruises and shows around here.

I'd love to attend the show in Tucson on the 5th, but I would most certainly be an early arrival. With a 3-4 hour drive time I almost always leave early to guarantee I won't be tardy and to miss most of the crazy traffic. That usually means I'll be early. Is there any way to handle this or are you stern on the no early arrival statement?

Pontiac heaven weekend has been listed here in the National Event s section for many months now. they way PY divides all the catagories now, it can be cumbersome finding some threads. Hope this help you.

I guess people in Pn at py think Kansas is 'west' cracks me up they way they divide the US and makes me wonder if they have ever left their town or look at a map?
anyway..
On POCI and Arizona, I was at the very first meeting to set up an Az chapter in 1981. So, there has been chapters for POCI in Az for 36 years.. Currently, there are 2, one based in Phoenix, the other ( original one ) based in Tucson. I belong to both of them and recommend them both as well.

Thank you for your interest and will see you there.

I always look in the Southwest section since I'm in Arizona hence the reason I never saw Pontiac Heaven listed. This is how I did find the Tucson listing.

So yeah, I missed it, my bad, as I tend to not look at other sections because I'm not ambitious enough to travel out of the Southwest much anymore, lol. I concentrate mainly on Arizona websites, Cruisin Arizona, Arizona Car Shows, etc... Oddly, it's not even listed on WildHorse Pass' website either, that was the first place I looked.

Haha! If you're gonna show up early, we're gonna put you to work helping us get things setup.

Seriously, though, we will GENUINELY welcome you regardless of when you do arrive, but we will most likely ask early arrivals to hang out for a bit in our staging area until our high school auto shop student volunteers are ready to help direct the Pontiacs & GMC Trucks into the designated lot.

Where in Arizona are you coming from?
