Git R Done and get that car back on the road.:sign0020:Great pictures. I attended the Millington tour stop. So many cars and trucks to see. Talked to a lot of nice people. Thinking I need to get my car done and make one of these tours in the future.
We don't have a count yet because folks can get on till North Carolina. They did say when they left Arlington there was over 3,000 vehicles. I think last year was over 5,000 vehicles and they expected more this year. Have to wait till it's over for a final count. The hotels, gas stations, eating places, etc. have not been able to handle the amount of people or vehicles. There has been several wrecks involving the cars and many breakdowns.Thanks for the pics, how big is that event looks like its larger than Ben Hur
Some of the restaurants we went to did not have enough wait staff to handle us and they said they did not know this event was coming to town so they weren't prepared for the amount customers that wanted service.Birmingham News reported 4700 cars registered. I register in Memphis but slipped by in Birmingham. So there were more cars that did not register... We were more than 100 mile from Birmingham when I got a call that the Parking lot was full at that time. Hot rods were as far as I could see in front of and behind me. What a site and almost all were going 70 MPH.... Heavy rain stopped many cars for a while but that line up was almost solid all the way to the parking lot...
Of 4 TV stations I did not see one report about the Power TOUR on TV. I am still running into people that had no clue about the event...
It might pay if you put a car together to take it out to a vacant big parking lot where you can put in it drive or 1st gear with the A/C on and just drive it around the parking lot (idle speed) for 90 to 120 minutes and see how your heat does.
