  • Things you dislike about the power tour

    Ok I know we all love the power tour. It is truly one of the best automotive events around. But there has to be a few things you don't like about it.
    The one thing I don't like is it seams to stay in the same area. It never goes west are dose it go to the northeast. Its seams to stay in the southeast are the Midwest. There are alot of good roads in these other parts of the country.

        I dislike the fact that I have long hauled 7 years now and don't have a single PowerTour T-shirt with a Ford on it!

          As Anthony said I dislike the fact that it never comes west other than in 2000 I believe when it ended in san bernardino and in 01 when it started here. I can understand some of the more remote places but so cal is a huge car area, just not as many sponsors as the midwest. I understand they go where they can get the dollars from but this was supposed to be about the drive, the cars, the people, not about who will give them sponsor money. Oh well, thats why we now have the western scenic tour, starts in vegas sept 22, 2013 and ends in Ouray, Colorado 5 days later!

                        It's fun for all of us or we would'nt do it every year. Our car does not have cooling problems, but I feel for the people who do have the problem. That what I was referring to but did not explain it.

                              Bad Boy! Bad Boy! Where's your Political Correctness?

                              We are not fond of the downtown venues. And make sure that we get an early start to try to get a decent parking place. Springfield in 2009 really sucked. Especially the way that they spread all of the sponsors all over town. And it would be nice if it would start close to me & end close to me. Probably never gonna happen though.
