  • Hot Rod Magazine Collectors - Help Please

    Does anybody that collects Hot Rod Magazine happen to have the April and/or May 1995 issues, that could check something for me?

    I'm just looking for some information that was published in those issues. Apparently while trying to get the word out about the first Power Tour, they listed the trip segment legs, overnights stops & venues, which is what I'm looking for.

    My online research mentions legs from Salina, Kansas to Chicago, Illinois with a venue in Kansas City, KS (Dick Clark's American Bandstand Restaurant) and another in Springfield, IL (Rock 'n Roll Hardees).

      Thanks Ken.
      Jim (squirrel) found the article in the April issue, so I'd like to see what they said in the May issue, if you've got it.

          No, that's the info Squirrel found in the April issue a few days ago, that I used to update my original post. I'm looking for the follow-up article in the May 1995 issue. Thanks anyhow though.

            I definitely have that issue in storage at my other home.
            I'm sure someone will have it long before I get there.

            Still have the original Power Tour sticker (from the magazine) on my number one Les Paul.
