Why Join POCI?

POCI was founded for the soul purpose of...

 Keeping The Pontiac Legacy Alive...


Formed in 1972 by a small group of enthusiasts who wanted to pool as much Pontiac and Oakland information as was possible, the first convention was held the following year in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. Since then, POCI chapters have formed all over the country and POCI Conventions have been held every year in a variety of locations.  The events include a car show, tech seminars, presentations, drag racing and a great swap meet. GMC trucks were included in 1998, due to their close relation to Pontiac.


The club’s magazine, Smoke Signals, also started in 1972 and has evolved into a world-class, award-winning monthly that continues to raise the bar for non-commercial publications. Smoke Signals was redesigned in 2006 and again in 2013. Today, it is a 92- to 100-page, full-color publication printed on heavyweight paper and also comes in digital form.


We are very excited with the future of the Pontiac hobby and we invite you to join POCI and start receiving Smoke Signals. Please note that members get access to download our digital editions that go all the way back to 2006.


We welcome anyone and everyone with an interest in Pontiacs, Oaklands and GMCs of any age or type to join us. Just use the membership form provided and get in on the action.


Whether you have an early Pontiac, a muscle-era GTO or Firebird, a full-sized Wide Tracker or late-model Trans Am, Solstice, or G8, we have a place for you and your car.
