It is with sincere regret that we are postponing the March 2018 all-Pontiac swap meet. Our club lost our sponsor and we were not able to secure a new location in time to support the 2018 event. The club appreciates the outstanding support we have had over many years from our vendors and customers. We will continue the traditional swap meet in March 2019.
