Club History

What is the Manitoba Pontiac Association all about?

The Manitoba Pontiac Association is a Winnipeg based car club whose main objective is to promote the preservation, restoration, and admiration of Pontiac, Buick, and Oldsmobile vehicles. Our members are car enthusiasts who either own, or want to own, a new, old, or classic Pontiac, Buick, or Oldsmobile.

A few people that wanted to share their love of cars with others formed the Manitoba Pontiac Association in August 1991. There are approximately 35 families (50+ people) in the club, ranging in ages of 18 to 60+. We promote the club as a "family club", planning events for all to enjoy. Besides trying to attend most of the local car show-and-shines, we have family picnics, photo shoots, sleigh rides, bowling, and enjoy socializing.

As a non-profit organization, the Manitoba Pontiac Association is very proud to be an active fundraiser for the Variety Club of Manitoba. We have been a part of this children's charity since 1993. Throughout the year we host or participate in various car shows. Any proceeds from these events go to the Variety Club.

The Manitoba Pontiac Association invites you to attend our next monthly meeting. All are welcome and there is no charge to attend the first two meetings. If by the third meeting you have not become a part of the Manitoba Pontiac Association, we will ask that you do so at that time.

At the meetings we generally have an optional $1.00 50/50 draw. Our yearly membership of $30.00 (per family) includes an informative newsletter "The Cruisin' Chiefs". The club meets the first Tuesday of each month (except December and January) for a business meeting at either Vickar Chevrolet located at 964 Regent Avenue West in the upstairs meeting room, or during May through September we switch things up a bit and instead meet at a different popular spot around the city for ice cream, sodas, etc!

The Manitoba Pontiac Association provides the opportunity for all enthusiasts to get together to not only enjoy some great cars but create long lasting friendships. Besides monthly meetings, we enjoy car cruises, show and shines across Manitoba, and other social events throughout the whole year. Come on out and see what the Manitoba Pontiac Association is all about. Feel free to contact any of the executive should you require any further information. We are proud to be a founding member club of the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs (MAAC).

Although we are a car club, we believe it's the people that make the club what it is. The cars are a fantastic bonus.
