It has been a long hot summer - something we have come to expect in Arizona. But the nights are cooling down, and it’s a great time to start thinking about getting your favorite GTO ready for some cruising.


Saturday is the first weekend back for "Pontiac night at Pavilions," one of our favorite places to hang out each month with our fellow Poncho fans, the Desert Renegades.

You might also be thinking of our first meeting back for the Cactus GTO Club.

Hopes dim for Kruse auction in Scottsdale

We expressed some concern when we read the local stories about individuals who had not been paid by Kruse International after selling their cars. Now it appears that Kruse, which provides Cactus GTOs with our main fundraising source each year, may be in much bigger trouble in its hometown state of Indiana. Check out this story HERE. Kruse has some bills to pay.
