I am thinking about participating in this years Hot Rod Power Tour and I'm wondering how many...IF any from the club would be interested in going.

The tour is from June 4th to the 11th and it starts in Milwaukee and goes down to Orlando with stops in Springfield, IL, Indianapolis, IN, Nashville, TN, Birmingham, AL, and Tallahassee, FL.

Please post here if interested.

I'm in, so is Terry, who will be 21 by then. Looks like a great trip.
I'm ready to register. Waiting to see how many can commit to going for the group discount.

The group discount is why I posted on here. Now all I have to do is make sure the boss will let me go! ;) :D

Sounds like a lot of fun I well have to see if i can get the money for it thats a lot of gas and hotels to pay for.

does the tour cost money? other than gas/hotel? Dave? I am definitely thinking about doing this. I would love to go back to my hometown of Milwaukee.

Cost to join the tour is I think $55. Hotel cost will be close to $1000 for 1 night in Lafayette, Indiana (on the way up), 2 nights in Milwaukee, 1 in Springfield, IL, 1 in Indianapolis, 1 in Nashville, 1 in Birmingham, 1 in Tallahassee, 1 in Kissimee. Food to Terry and me wil be another expense. But, what a vacation, tons of fun. I'll get to know my son a lot better.

Come and join us, let's have a blast with thousands of cars on a tour across the middle of the country.

I'm checking into this. I have always wanted to do this event. If I do it, I'll probably just start at Nashville, Birmingham, or somewhere in between.

I signed up for the HRPT the second it was announced. I am a rookie and cannot wait! I will be joining the tour on Sunday night 6/5 in Springfield, IL and going thru to Thursday a.m. when I have to return to northern Ohio. I would love to meet up w/ anyone from the SCMC that is going and show the tour what a Cobra is all about and represent our club.

Anyone, feel free to contact me...would love to hook up.

Well I'm IN! (unless something drastic happens) I made all my reservations tonight but not through their travel agent I did them on my own. It took me several hours to do it but I saved about $350 and I can cancel all of them and not loose any money! :D :thumbsup: I also mapped out from each stop to the hotel! :D I've printed out the Power Tour Route information from their site so LIFE IS GOOD! Dave - email me so we can plan to meet up. :thumbsup:

How about letting me in on your plans? I hope to be able to pick up some of the run from Nashville to south of Birmingham.

No major plans in that area of the country yet. Looks like Dave and I will be doing the long haul thing so tell us where you are going to pick up the tour and we can try to meet up. :thumbsup:

Cobra95vert, I see you're from Roswell. I used to live there in the early 80's, up in Saddle Creek. Traffic was bad then, can't be tolerable now. I worked in Buckhead and the commute was a killer. That's why I moved to Raleigh in 1986.

Read back through all the posts in this thread and you can get internet links pointing to information about the tour. The more the merrier. We'd love to have you ride along with us, Steve.

:D

Hey Greg,
A coworker is doing the whole tour with his '69 Mustang. I'll probably try to at least come out to see what's going on since you'll be going right past my town.

Sounds like big fun!

Tell your friend to look me up! One leg of the tour I would love to get all the Stangs together for a run! Why don't you bring yours out and cruise with us at least part of the way?? :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Are you long hauling or just doing part of the tour? Sorry I missed this post somehow when reading the forums.

As of now, I am planning on driving from Atlanta up to Nashville on Tuesday afternoon to be there for the party/event at night. Then, I'll drive with the group down to Birmingham Wednesday and head home after hanging there a while. I'll be staying at the Days Inn near the Opryland Hotel. See you guys in Nashville, if all goes well.

We're in Nashville now, at Opryland Hotel. 2800 cars left Milwaukee, don't know how many have made it this far. Having a blast, passing out SCMC cards to each Cobra owner we meet. Hopefully some nbew members will come of it.

Great trip so far. Next year's trip starts in Kissimmee and goes northeast from there. ???????

I'd upload pictures but don't have the proper device to get them to the laptop.

Here are some links to reports of the tour...

Sounds like you guys are having a blast. We expect lots of pictures when you get back.

Were you and Greg able to get all the Mustangs together for a family portrait?

Dave,

We need a newsletter article on this and maybe that will help you for next year? Please have some pics and tell us about the experiences you both are having.

Thanks,
