DAPA – Out In Force at the Heights 2014 Car Show

Dapa members were out in force at the 2014 edition of the Heights Car Show, put on by the Heights Baptist Church in Richardson. There were move Pontiacs present at this show than your intrepid reporter has seen in one place in a very long time. In fact, the number of Indians far outnumbered those even at this year’s Dallas Autorama. In addition to our normal propensity for being the coolest folks there, several members also served as judges for the event. …And…

DAPA at Autorama 2014

Dallas Autorama 2014 is in the record books,  and DAPA participated once again this year with an eight (8) car club display.  Although earlier in the week the weather had been wet, cold, and more than a little bit ominous, by the time for move-in on Thursday we were graced with clear skies and pleasant temperatures that held throughout the weekend.  Once more DAPA would like to thank Derrick and Brenda Neyra for taking care of the club neon sign and display rigging, helping with set-up on Thursday and break-down on Sunday evening.
