We are PONTIACERS!
The Colorado Chapter of the Pontiac-Oakland Club International
In 1974, the Colorado Chapter was chartered by the Pontiac-Oakland Club International (POCI). It was a group of 18 with a variety of vehicles and a common interest. The group had a common interest in the enjoyment, history, preservation, and restoration of Pontiac and Oakland vehicles. Recently, the organization has welcomed the owners of GMC pickup trucks: Pontiac built V-8 engines for GMC pickups starting in 1955.
The chapter has actively supported the OCCC, now the Collector Car Council of Colorado, since the 1970’s. We have had a chapter member serve as an officer of the Council and many members volunteer to work on Council events. One chapter member has served as a National Director of POCI. The chapter is active in the community with mini car shows and financial contributions to charitable organizations.
Pontiacers define the ‘ideal car event’ as a reasonable drive and FOOD. Generally, events are held in Denver area, but we annually hold events in the Fort Collins/Greeley and Colorado Springs areas. The north and south meetings satisfies the ‘ideal meeting’ standard. Anyone sharing the common interest is welcome at a chapter event.
The Pontiac Buggy Works, located in Oakland County Michigan, introduced the Oakland automobile in 1908. The Pontiac automobile was introduced in 1926; a thrifty family car introduced as the ‘Chief of the Sixes’. Oakland automobiles became a victim of the Great Depression. No one in the chapter owns a Pontiac buggy, but there are Oaklands . . . . and a whole bunch of Pontiacs and several GMC pickups.
We welcome owners of all Pontiacs, Oaklands and GMC Pickups regardless of condition or body style.
