    Found out yesterday that the power tour is making a stop in Kzoo. COOL
    Has anyone run the power tour partially or long haul?
    I was pondering about putting the 3.55 rear end back in the Vette and running a few hundred miles with them.

    They're starting this years tour right up the road from me..ol' dad is thinking about doing part of the tour with the 66 chevelle.. he already did a route 66 trip with his vette a few years ago, so he wants to add the power tour to his resume..

    back in 96, I did the last leg of the power tour with some guys in my camaro club.. we picked up the tour at the ohio / michigan border, then went all the way to Norwalk Raceway Park.. This was back when the tour was just a reason to caravan to the annual norwalk hot rod power fest..

    One thing that still pisses me off about hot rod and that year's tour.. one of our club members helped the magazine plan the route around all of the ohio turnpike construction going on at the time.. lots of phone calls, emails, etc.. anyway, the tour stopped at a gas station outside of Norwalk.. we didn't need to stop, so we just rolled into the grounds and waited.. when the lead cars finally roll in, we tried to park with the rest of the tour, and not only wouldn't the track let us, the magazine guys we helped acted like they didn't know who we were.. they felt that since we were already waiting for them, we weren't part of the tour.. and this was after we'd been promised we could park with them..

    didn't even get a shout out in the magazine for the help.. some people's kids, I tell ya..

    We stopped in saturday at the cleveland IX center to see the initial tour gathering.. easily several thousand cars in attendance, and me without the camera. dad opted against doing the tour, but we had fun saturday. Saw a 72 K5 softop there that was doing the tour, and a nicely restored 85 K5 also packed to the gills, ready to go..
