  • I live for the Power Tour !

    I love the Power Tour... It's the escape EVERY hotrodder needs from the stress of everyday life.
    My first tour was 2010... And I've been addicted ever since. Each year its like a family reunion... Simply amazing.

    Unfortunatly a few weeks ago, some idiot hit my Grand National and totalled it. It was my first hot rod... And I feel like I've lost a child. So many great memories in that car. BUT... That will not hold me back.. I WILL be riding again this year....one way or another. I will not let some idiots bad judgement keep me from what I love.

    I could have died.... So I can truely say.. I live for the Power Tour.

    I'm still waiting for the process to get my check.. but once I do... I will buy another GN and see my extended family on the tour.

    Anyone that says it costs too much... You are wrong .. well except gas. My first tour I shared $55 a night hotel rooms with two others. They weren't five star places... But we had a great time !

    I hope that every hotrodder gets to experience the tour at least once in their lives. The roads are fun to drive and the people are amazing.

    If you go, stop by the PILOT TRANSPORT vendor rig and say hi... I will be rollin with those great guys !

      Glad you're ok and we'll see you on the Tour! I think you may have offered to help me change a flat tire on the 2010 PT.

        Great to hear your OK, my first PT was last year and like you I'm hooked. If I ever miss one in the future it's because I'm dead! I'll be looking for you this year, be safe but be fast!

          I haven't checked turbobuick.com, are you buying the totaled car back to part out?

                Yeah, my baby is back home... Im thinkin pretty hard about selling body/interior parts and keeping guts for a Roadster.
                Will have stuff in the for sale buick for sale section soon.


                GN, I'm glad you are OK also. And it was great to see you on the tour wiping down that GN in high heels.. Let us know what you will drive and we will all say hi..
                Thanks, better each day.... LOL... yeah, thats what I get for not fixing my wiper motor before the tour.... this year will be different... except for the heels =) Gotta sport the heels ! I have another GN coming from CT at the end of April... so I will be rollin again this year.

                      one of the most fun things you can do on power tour, is throw a party for your fellow power tour buddies (see other thread) when they come to town

                      DTB and I did it last year and it turned out great we had a blast

                      i think you need to throw a party at your place when we are in st. louis (hint hint)

                          Glad to hear that you are OK and we agree with Bruce. It looks like it is your turn to throw a party. The party he hosted last year was superb!!!
