The Northern California GTO Club was established in July 1983 as a family oriented car club for enthusiasts of the “Original Muscle Car”, the Pontiac GTO. With eight members attending the first meeting, there are now over 100 members and we’re still growing! The Northern California GTO Club is a non-profit tax exempt corporation with officers that are elected every year.
Membership is open to persons who are 18 years of age or older and are interested in the classic (1964 – 1974) and new generation (2004 – 2006) Pontiac GTOs. Ownership of a GTO is not a requirement, but attendance at two meetings is required before being voted upon for admission to the club. There is a $20.00 application fee and annual dues of $35.00. A newsletter only membership with annual dues of $20.00 is also available. Monthly meetings are held on the first Saturday of every month where upcoming events are discussed and GTO technical information is shared.
The Northern California GTO Club produces a monthly newsletter that is distributed to its members and sponsors. Also available to its members are club shirts, jackets, and caps that include the Northern California GTO Club logo. Discounts at various automotive dealers are also available to club members.
Club members participate in various car related activities such as car shows, parades, and cruise/graffiti nights. Annually, some club members caravan to the Tiger Run GTO event in Bend, Oregon in June. Some other family events include trips to the Wine Country, Gold Country, and Apple Hill. The Northern California GTO Club also makes its GTOs available for charitable events, grand openings, weddings, and homecomings. Annually the Northern California GTO Club puts on a picnic in the summer for its members.
