We're Getting the Band Back Together; that is "The Gulf Coast Trans Am Club"

After the long demise of a cult icon gathering of guys and their Trans Am's, "The Gulf Coast Trans Am Club" which started in May 1976 by Al Tropea and quickly grew to a cult following all the way into the early 90's only to see it's demise with only 2 -3 members remaining.
Fast forward to 2010 and the bug has hit again for a grand reunion of brotherhood for the memories of long ago.
The spark started as one or two people searching for old Gulf Coast Trans Am pictures of members were found by the power of the internet and directed them to some pictures that i had posted here on Motortopia under "The Gulf Coast Trans Am Club" folder, there also talk arlier this year at the PSN in Dallas by several old club members. That spark lead to others finding these old pictures and reminissing of the good ole days when gas was cheap and the thrills were still fresh in their heads to want that glory day once more.
The planning has started with an organization committee to have a reunion to be held October 16th 2010 at "Jimmy's Egg" in Clear Lake, TX (Houston) at 6pm for more info. please contact Mike Pergande (713-826-1955) or myself at (580-317-3919)
Who knows the the talk is in the air of getting Club reorganized and started again. We'll keep our finger crossed on that. GCTAC was the 3rd club in the US tobe orginaized.
There is to be a slide show presentation from all the old pictures from all members that i can get my hands on. Food is scheduled at Jimmy's Egg, there will be a guest speakers (Glenn Tinsley former Pro Gass Racer who raced the Super Duty TA) as well. More to follow as details are still be worked out, but wanted to get the word out to those interested in attending this historic moment for a forgotten gathering and a great group of guys with a love of the cars they drove. The Pontiac Trans Am.
