2012 Power Tour

Dear Fellow Pontiac Enthusiast,

Has anyone given any thought to going on the Power Tour in 2012. I can't get away for the whole trip but thought about driving to Stillwater (From Texas) then driving back in with the show.

I was curious if any or howmany of you might be doing that. Also thought about running all the Pontiacs together.

Anyhow, just a thought.


Jim

That will be great. Are there several of you (Friends) making the trip?
I look forward to meeting my fellow Pontiac Enthusiest.

No clue yet. I'm trying to get some more people going. It all depends on who can get off work.

I wasn't aware that Hot Rod released next year's tour locations already. I would be surprised if they start in Detroit unless it's already set in stone. The 2011 tour was rumored to start in Mobile since that's where the 2010 ended but started at Cocoa Beach, FL instead. Yes, my wife and I set aside a week's vacation to go on the '12 run.

Will be my 3rd consecutive year. My wife started going with me last year. She had a good time. I'm pretty sure she'll be going with me again. I try to do a little something to my car every year just before the next tour. Keeps me from sitting on my arse and gives me initiative to keep doing stuff to the car. Goal for this upcoming tour is to get Pedders suspension on and maybe (money permitting) larger stall in the 3200-3400 range and Driveshaft Shop driveshaft. Got plenty of time before June. We'll see. We need to get threads like this fired back up around April-ish to see who's all going, how many stops they'll be making, etc. etc.

No kidding? My 69 was built in Arlington! I told my honey that I'd like to do this... maybe it'll be possible.
