2001 Hot Rod Virtual Power Tour - Day Ten, May 12

The Festive Finale

So many of the Long Haul gang liked staying over a second day in San Bernardino, we were beginning to think they didn't want the Power Tour to end. Well, maybe only a few felt that way, but judging from all the folks we interviewed at the finale, (check back for streaming videos to be uploaded in the next couple of weeks), this year's Tour was a standout success. Of course, everybody was hoping to win some big prizes, too (see photos and captions at right for details).
The comments we heard about the Power Tour experience were universally positive, even when Long Haulers encountered mechanical or other travel problems, because their fellow Tourers were right there to lend a hand. Many said that despite being an event for and about hot rods, it's the people they meet on the way that made it somethin' special. Their common bit of advice to other potential Power Tour participants? "Just do it," encouraged one couple. "You won't get this kind of chance very many times in life, and you need to experience it." Our sentiments exactly.
As sort of a retrospective of all the hot iron and cool paint jobs we saw on the Power Tour, we've put together some sidebars with a large collection photos. Check'em out by clicking on the links below -you might get some great ideas to use on your rod project (and maybe bring it on the Long Haul in 2002). Hope to see ya' next year!
