It’s about a special event that stands out from a regular car show or meet for owners of these special interest and limited edition auto’s. You will meet owners from all over United States and Canada that have the same pride in their Firehawk/Comp T/A as you do.

You will not see a greater number of Firehawks and Comp T/A’s gathered in one place than at the Rally.
The best part is that the Rally is in conjunction with the Ames Pontiac Performance Nationals (Ames Performance Tri Power Pontiac Nationals) The Nationals show alone is great draw with over 700 Pontiacs in both the Show & Racefield. Its an all around event Car Show, Drag Racing, Swap Meet, Car Corral, Vendors Pontiac Motorsports and Pontiac Concept Cars. This gives our attendees a chance to show and win trophies from both the Pontiac Nationals and the Firehawk/Comp T/A Associations. In other words you are attending two car shows at the same time.
