Hot Rod Power Tour 2007

Time to start planning!

The 2007 Hot Rod Power Tour starts in Cleveland this year on 6/2 at the I-X Center by the airport. This is not an event to be missed if you can swing the time. I did part of it in 2005 and driving down highways and backroads w/ thousands (yes thousands!) of other car freaks is just awesome....not to mention the evening tour stops in each city. Great party!

The 2007 Power Tour
6/2 Cleveland, OH
6/3 Kalamazoo, MI
6/4 Racine, WI
6/5 Springfield, IL
6/6 Evansville, IN
6/7 Memphis, TN
6/8 Little Rock, AR

I plan on at least doing Cleveland thru Racine (Sat thru Mon.) although thru Springfield or Evansville would be ideal for a return trip to home base. We will see what I can swing and what other members are doing.

How much of this tour that we participate in is up to us. It is just $65.00 to register and then what you spend on gas, hotels, etc... There are cheap ways to do this if you plan. You can register at www.hotrod.com They have hotel information there also if you choose to use it or you can search on your own for more budget oriented places to stay (ie: The Red Roof!)

NOW THE GOOD PART - I live 5 minutes from the inital Tour Stop and would love to serve as "home base" for the tour kickoff for any SCMCer's planning on participating. Depending on response, I am inviting all Cobra drivers and passengers to an SCMC cookout on Friday 6/1/07. Some good food, Cobra washing/detailing if needed, a few "kick-off" beverages, and some good conversation/friendship will be the agenda.

There is a cheap and nice Holiday Inn Select just down the road from me and close to the inital tour stop that I would recommend for those of you traveling to Cleveland from afar. This link will get you there:

http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/sl/...ilsearch&ias=y

I recommend you use the Hot Rod Power Tour site for additional hotels along the tour route. We can coordinate where we are all staying via this thread hopefully.

Post up your thoughts and plans here. This could be a great few days and with all the activity available to us this could be a very fun spring,summer, and fall.

I am working on it Mike. Taking my time as a couple things w/ my career have got to be solidified before I take the plunge. I am cruising eBay and SVT Performance regularly watching what is for sale and taking the temperature of the market.

A couple track events will get done this year - somehow!

Dave Stanfield and I have been on the last two Power Tours and did the long haul each time. This year however I don't think I'm going to do the tour. I'm taking my vacation to go to Mustang Week at the beach so my whole family can go. I MAY and I stress MAY come up to Cleveland for the weekend of June 2nd & 3rd for the kick off and to see some relatives I have in the area. I grew up in Cleveland Heigths and have relatives in Fairview and Pepper Pike (opposites sides of the City!).

It might be fun just to do the Cleveland to Kalamazoo part of the cruise to give everyone a taste of the event - lower the cost to each of us and determine if we want to make it a bigger event next year.

I live about 30 min. from the IX Center.
I'd like to make it to the cookout and meet some members. I'm considering doing the first leg of the tour and then staying with friends in Detroit.

My brother and I will get in to town Thursday night and we're having dinner with a cousing who lives in Fairview Park. Friday we're going to the RRHOF and out to dinner with some folks I've met on previous tours. Saturday is the show...right now I do NOT think we have plans for Saturday night. IF y'all want to meet at the I-X center and do something after that let me know.

Yes....Power Tour Clarification:

The city and date listed on the HRPT Schedule means you stay in that city that day. The Tour would leave for the next tour stop/city the next morning.
The Tour starts Saturday 6/2 in Cleveland and participants should plan to stay in Cleveland that night if they wish to leave for Kalamazoo on Sunday 6/3 per the Official HRPT Schedule.

Thus if you are coming to Cleve on Friday you will need 2 nights in a hotel.

As previously noted, I will be hosting a cookout on Friday for those SCMCers that would like to come and anyone wishing to clean up their Cobra can do so that evening or Saturday morning at my home. Just let me know what your plans are and I can PM you my address and Mapquest you directions.

Definitely, coming Friday. I then elect to leave late Saturday if I am not driving to Kalamazoo. Or I may drive with the group until they hit Toledo on Sunday and turn off for home. Right now I have booked both nights in Cleveland

Well, I am pretty sure that my father and I are going to participate on friday for the grillin and chillin, and sat for the show. Not sure if I am going to go any further than that, but it would be seriously cool to ride with a huge group for a little while.

That's unless you have to go to Boise that week/weekend, right?
