Welcome

You are cordially invited to join the Pontiac-Oakland Club International, the world's largest and oldest organization devoted exclusively to Pontiac and Oakland automobiles.

POCI, through its various services and publications, promotes the preservation and restoration of Pontiacs and Oakland's. You do not need to own one of these fine automobiles (yet), but it helps if you really love them. Membership allows access to a vast pool of information, parts and automotive resources.

Pontiac Performance

In continuing with Pontiac's leadership in the performance market, we have a strong contingency, and support of the high-performance segment of our hobby. Whether you have a vintage cruiser, '54 Chieftain, '64 Grand Prix, '70 GTO Judge, '96 Trans Am, are building an earth-shaking drag machine or a one-of-a-kind street rod, POCI is for you. There is something for everyone, from the purist to the customized; the antique car owner to the new car purchaser.

Monthly Magazine

You will receive a subscription to POCI's award-winning monthly magazine, SMOKE SIGNALS. Membership to the National POCI organization is included in your subscription. This large colorful magazine contains articles relating to Pontiac and Oakland automobiles, technical data, restoration tips and classified advertising. You will find stories about the members and their cars, along with performance articles and news of local chapter activities across the United States, Canada and around the world.

The "Classified Section" offers you the largest all Pontiac and Oakland audience anywhere. Ads from members, whether for sale or wanted, include parts, sales and service literature, and promotional items as well as complete cars. Classified advertising privileges are extended to members only and as such are free of charge. Paid commercial advertising is also available, keeping you current on all the latest parts and services available in the auto hobby industry.

Local/Regional Chapters

Our chapter, the Southern California Chapter POCI, offers members monthly Club Nights, cruises, car shows, Show N' Shines, tours, picnics, poker runs and many other family-oriented activities every month of the year. In addition, you will receive the Chieftain Chatter, a monthly newsletter linking you to upcoming events and our chapter members, currently over 110 strong and growing. To join a local chapter, you must be a member in good standing (dues current) with the National POCI organization.

Conventions

The annual POCI International Convention is the gala event of the year, attracting hundreds of members and their cars from all over the world. The convention is held annually in various locations throughout the U.S. and is jointly sponsored by Pontiac Motor Division and the local POCI chapter providing the location. Local chapters also hold Regional Conventions by geographic area.

Technical Advisors

The POCI Technical Advisor Program has been a great help to many in the past and continues to offer more services as the membership expands and more areas of expertise are added. The Technical Advisors are board-approved members, possessing expertise in a particular area, who have volunteered to assist fellow members with their questions and needs. Any problems, from authentic paint and upholstery, to mechanical rebuilds and performance problems, can be addressed by the Technical Advisor staff.

As you can see, POCI is a strong, active, concerned organization. Much of the current interest in Pontiac and Oakland automobiles is due to the Pontiac-Oakland Club. In the more than 20 years since its formation, the National organization has grown into a worldwide group of devoted enthusiasts numbering over 10,000 strong!
