O/T HotRod Power tour 2011
« on: January 03, 2011, 07:52:28 am »
H i everyone, I was wondering if any Forum members might be going on the tour?

The reason why I ask is .............I am LOL!!..........Well me and around 15 Fellow Aussies are coming over for it. I am really looking forward to coming back to the U.S. I had such a great time back in Sept 2002 meeting some great people and seeing just a little of this beautiful country. Since we are driving on the tour I look forward to seeing allot more for sure  :)

If anyone lives in or near any of the towns we are travelling through or staying in I would love to catch up over a beer or cold drink or even if you just cruise with us for a few block LOL!! I would be blown away if you even drove your Cobra jet out to see us? I don't want anyone to take any risks or anything, just if your up for a cruise or want to meet us at any of the towns we are stopping in for the evening I'd love to meet you?

When I know my exact dates I'll add them later, I do know after the power tour I'll be driving from M.I. to Norfolk V.A. to catch up with my good friend Joe Sikora for a week or so? So "Tony" mate what are you doing in June?  ;) ;D  I will also be going to the Charlotte 300 in N.C. in May which I will be fulfilling a teen age dream of seeing a Live NASCAR race  ;D

So any help with some cool venues or even speed shop that you think I'll need to see let me know I really apprecite some help on this one? I w

Peter,
Are you coming out to California after/before?  If so, I can take you over to the house where the original owner of your car lives/lived.  Maybe this time somebody will answer the door  :D

Hi Scott hows things,
I think the guys have arranged to fly out of L.A. to vegas in the same day...... : (

But I see our flight in arrives in L.A. at 0715 and  our Vegas flight doesn't leave until 1750.  Looks like I have a whole day to kill, I'd love  to make a surprise visit  ;)

     Hey Peter, I know that time is always an issue when visiting anywhere. Then comes the money and what to see first decisions. There are so many places to see that it is not even a chance to get to them all. May I suggest a few places here in the West.
     You mentioned Las Vegas, great place in itself but wander a little ways away from town. Boulder Dam is really an awesome sight. It was built when LV was just a small sleepy town in the desert. The dam and the gorge that it is in are sights that you should see. A new highway bridge spans the river that I hear is great. Tours are available inside the dam. Not as nice of tour as before 9-11. Remember that the town never sleeps either.
     The south rim of the Grand Canyon is nice. During the summer there is an old steam train that runs from Williams Arizona to the rim. But they only let you stay at the rim 2-3 hours. The north rim is harder to get to but just as nice with fewer people.
     The area around Moab Utah is one of my favorites. You'll never see it all. A huge desert area with great vistas. The Great Salt flats in northern Utah where many land speed records were set is good. There is a huge open pit copper mine outside of Salt Lake City Utah. Visitors center is closed during the winter. :( There is an inactive open pit copper mine near Ely Nevada (northern) that is interesting.
     Keep some of these in mind for your next trip. You'll want to come back I'm sure.

Peter,
I'll take you by the dealer where your car was sold new.  It's now a used car section for Ray Andrews Ford who now has a new lot over by the freeway.  And, there is a good bar down the street for some cold ones ;D  Just give me a week or two ahead of time so I can plan the time off. If you and your friends were driving to Vegas, you could stop by my house which is on the way and we'd BBQ  ;D.  Also, i don't know if there will be a race but the Fontana Speedway is about 15 minutes away from my house. Sorry, I'm not a nascar guy

Scot, Great Idea why didn't I think of visiting my old dealership even if it has changed : )  Mate, we are flying out too Vegas, otherwise would have loved to have a BBQ and drinks with you for sure, will have to settle with a few cold ones at a place of your choice?

While at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, be sure to go to the Museum. It's great.

That is soooo cool! I think it needs a King Cobra nose! Seriously, if anyone EVER sees a 70-71 Montego Villager(woody) wagon, let me know. That or a 65 Ford wagon with a P code 390 P.I. are my holy grails of Fords.. love those wagons! Prefer 4 speeds of course but can't be hardly any of those built..

Jeff, she is a sweet ride only 351 2v but a nice cruiser, we have had some drama, looks like some cowboy has tried to lift the car up with a fork lift or something and badly bent the tailshaft  :o ??? So today before we headed to Charlotte for the race we had to replace it, SO now just about to sleep for the Charlotte 600 is on tomorrow can't wait my first ever NASCAR race  ;D

It's been a while since I've been to a race at Lowes, but the thing I remember most is that it was so loud that I couldn't hear the guy sitting right next to me!

Guess I'll stop complaining about living a couple of miles from the GM proving grounds in MI !!

Hot Rod Power Tour "LONG HAULERS" came by today from 12:15 to 2 PM !!  Almost two hours of constant cars.   I gathered about 16 of my neighbors to watch.   Got to talk to a number (backed up at stop sign).
All said they loved Michigan - spoke highly of the efforts in Muskegon and at GM.

Many are returning for Woodward in Aug.   Not sure if Peter and his mates are on their way south. That Torino could have stayed here !

Hey! Mark great effort in trying to get hold of me. we thought all those people waving at us from the over passes were saying hello to the power tour when in fact they were your neighbours trying to tell me to turn off lol !!!
