          pring is finally upon us, and the MoPowered Tour only a few months away. Here is the latest updates on what all is going on!

          You can see we have a lot going on.

          This year I have double checked the morning stops actually exist and are open for breakfast! Dinner stops are just cool suggestions, they sound interesting. I hope to hit up every one and have a blast.

          Dave Ferro and his crew from Totally Auto (www.totallyautoinc.com) will be joining us just after the start of the Tour, bringing along his awesome Hemi Barracuda.

          We're working out details for Detroit and Muskegon. Will keep you updated.

          The VerHage Auto Museum is opening their doors to the Tour again on Monday. Definitely a cool place to see with all their vintage Mopar metal.

          The busy day is Tuesday with two stops. After you check in at Mid-America, head on over to the Flat landers Motor Club (Mopar Guys) less then a mile away. It will have food, entertainment and shop tours with a bunch of very rare Mopars. Some seen in recent MCG issues, including the Richard Petty 64 Plymouth Tribute race car. After that we are heading to Performance Plus, famous Mopar engine and Mopar restoration business. Their 71 Hemi Cuda Convertible Tribute recently attended SEMA and appeared on SpikeTV's PowerBlock as well as attending the MCACN show.. We stopped there in 2010 and it was a blast.

          Going from St. Louis to Miami is a mad dash across Missouri. It can take almost 6 hours. So instead of a stop during the route, afterwards we can all meetup at the cool vintage Waylan's KuKu Drive-in.

          From Miami to Stillwater there is Kirk Auto Museum in Ripley, OK that has a bunch of awesome old muscle cars and race cars.

          There is a lunch stop at Covercraft on the portion between Stillwater, Ok and Arlington, TX.

          After the Long Haulers get together on Saturday, all MoPowered Tour participants are invited to Monster Mopar Weekend @ Gateway Int. Raceway (http://monstermopar.com/spring-fling-st-louis-mo/). It is FREE entry Sunday to any MoPowered Tour Participants with the MoPowered Tour sticker on their car.

          A group of MoPowered Tour cars will be traveling together there after the Long Haul Ceremony with a overnight stop in either Springfield, MO or Rolla, MO.

          Don't forget to sign up by emailing us at

              Here is a more detailed breakdown on the two incredible Mopar stops on Day Four going from Champaign to Gateway Int. Raceway.

              We start off at Mary-Ann's Diner, 1510 S Neil St, Champaign, IL 61820. We will leave the diner at 7:30. Get to the diner at whatever time you feel comfortable as to leave by 7:30. It should take us about 2 hours to get to Mid-America.

              After you check in at Mid-America, DO NOT EAT THERE!!!!!! Head right around the corner, it is the first Mopar stop at the Flatland Motor Club (All Mopar Guys) 804 East Rickleman Ave, Effingham, IL 62401. There will be a bunch of Mopars there including the tribute 64 Petty Race car with real Petty Hemi engine, recently seen in Mopar Collectors Guide. Also there will be shop tours, running Hemi's on stands and much more. Do not follow your GPS, it will take you to the wrong place. There is a map attached to this email to follow.

              THERE IS FREE FOOD at the Flatland Motor Club , so DO NOT EAT at Mid-America.

              We will be leaving there at 12:00 to head over to Performance Plus, 1511 U.S. Hwy 50 west, Odin,IL 62870. A Mopar restoration shop. They will have a group of awe inspiring Mopars, including the famous 71 Hemi Cuda Convertible tribute that has won numerous awards, been to SEMA, MCACN, and even appeared on SpikeTV's Power Block with Courtney Hansen.

              We will leave Performance Plus at 2:30 to get to Gateway Int. Raceway with time to check in and go through the show. We want to try to get a good line of Mopars coming into Gateway and get video of us rolling in together for MoprTV.

              Afterwards some of us will be heading to, Pappy's Smokehouse, 3106 Olive St. St Louis, MO 63103. It sounds like a interesting place and the reviews for it are good. This is just a suggestion and by no means a requirement.

                Wow, can you believe that is two weeks til we will be in Detroit!

                Mopar Collectors Guide put the word out about the Tour. So we had a good jump in participation. This is the largest MoPowered Tour to date!

                Ryan Brutt with the Blue 09 Challenger R/T Classic will be getting into Detroit on Friday. Keep an eye out for it and the large goliath in the brown fedora hat.

                We have decided to stick with the original Bad Brad's BBQ in Stillwater. Heard good things about it. Also we have a participant that actually works for Kicker who is going to see us there.

                Dave Ferro and the Totally Auto crew is going to be joining in probably in Champaign. His daughter is graduating. If there is any reason to miss the MoPowered Tour, can't get much better then that. Congratulations to her and the family! Www.totallyautoinc.com

                We just downloaded a new texting program called “GroupMe”. We are working on how this works to mass text everyone. Currently we will only be texting in case of emergencies. But that might change.

                Also we will have a 2-way radio in the lead vehicle if you want to have one.

                Here is the breakdown again of the whole weeks activities.

                  Well here we are ladies and gentlemen. One week til the MoPowered Tour.

                  A few updates....

                  I am having a lot of people interested in the dinner on Friday. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING. I need to talk to the people there and let them know. We are planning on hitting up the Union Wood Shop around 3pm that way we can do the cruise in Mt. Clemens.

                  We're still working out the “GroupMe” program.

                  The official driving directions are posted, as well as the breakdown on daily events with Hot Rod. I will be going over the directions this weekend and making “adjustments” for the MoPowered Tour. So expect a few more emails over the coming week.

                  Also a few mentioned that they would like to get together on Saturday. We will meet at the WPC Museum @ 3pm on Saturday. I have attached a 2 for 1 coupon. The museum closes at 5 so that should allow people to go around and view everything.

                          A few small updates.

                          We have a few people coming to Friday's dinner. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING. I need to talk to the people there and let them know. We are planning on hitting up the Union Wood Shop around 3pm that way we can do the cruise in Mt. Clemens.

                          The “GroupMe” program works. Just please, do not reply to the messages that we send. Your replies get forwarded to everyone in the group. And some do not have text messaging plans. If you have any questions, you can email me at this email address, or call me at 847-606-3813.

                          Still working on the official driving directions... wow there are a lot of turns.

                          Also a few mentioned that they would like to get together on Saturday.

                          We will meet at the WPC Museum @ 3:30 pm on Saturday. I have attached a 2 for 1 coupon. The museum closes at 5 so that should allow people to go around and view everything. After they close we will probably hang around for a bit then head to dinner.

                          ALSO, Russ's Drive In restaurant in Muskegon is closed on Sundays. We will instead be going to Dog N' Suds Drive in (much cooler IMO) just down the street (address below). I hope to be getting there around 6pm after the USS Silversides.

                          Below is the day by day breakdown WITH NEW UPDATES.

                            Dinner on Friday @ Union Woodshop has been moved back an hour to 4 PM. They are not open at 3!

                            Also we might be changing the location of Breakfast on Saturday June 9th. They are not open at 7 am.

                            On the directions, when we leave Performance Plus in Odin, IL we will be making a RIGHT out of the driveway.

                            Other then that we are good to go. I'll be leaving Chicago at 5 pm. See you all here shortly.
