GMC Truck Chapter

Posted in Chapter News, What's new on the GMC Scene on July 28, 2010 by pontiacoaklandclub
The GMC Truck Chapter held its meeting at the 2010 POCI Convention in Charleston. Because we are a non-regional chapter, this is a once a year event. The meeting was well attended and there was positive discussion about the chapter’s financial stability and the addition of 17 new members since the 2009 Convention in Dayton. Our Chapter Display gets better each year, and received an award for 2010. The GTC has a great newsletter, The GTC Times, published by Editor Paul Bergstrom 6 times a year. The chapter also maintains a growing website at .
We welcome anyone with an interest in the GMC Trucks to join us by visiting  the website or the NON-REGIONAL SPECIALTY CHAPTERS section on the back pages of Smoke Signals magazine.

Three of four real 2000 Daytona Pace Cars re-united

This is the first time in over ten years that the cars have been re-united.
