What's a DelMarVa?
Delmarva is the region of the Mid-Atlantic consisting of the peninsula bordered on the east by the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, and on the west by the Chesapeake Bay. It is comprised of the whole state of Delaware, nine counties of Maryland, and two counties of Virginia. Hence the name: Del-Mar-Va.
Known variously as “the Eastern Shore”, “the Land of Pleasant Living, and (to Delawareans) “Lower, Slower Delaware”, Delmarva is a place of beautiful shoreline vistas, succulent seafood, abundant tourism opportunities, and a healthy agricultural economy. Delmarva is famous for its steamed hard crabs, chicken farms, sailing regattas, Chincoteague Island wild ponies, and as the home of “Punkin’ Chunkin”.
DelMarVa is also the home of P.O.C.I.’s newest local Chapter, having earned official recognition on March 20, 2011. Our members are proud of our region, and proud of our Pontiacs. We look forward to contributing to the P.O.C.I. community and to promoting interest in the Pontiac/Oakland/GMC hobby.
