Can you hear it? Can you feel it? It’s the sound of the 1999 Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour thundering across America! Eleven caffeine-filled days,
hundreds of hot rods, and thousands of enthusiasts will be there. And of course, Forrest Tosie, Ken Holland, will be in the thick of things, using our high tech bag of tricks to report of every twisted detail from the coolest cars to the strangest of the strange.
We’ll even be driving our pristine Mothers® 1959 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery.
As with last year, our daily coverage will be uploaded to the Mothers® web site on two separate days: May 22st (days 1 thru 6) and May 27th (days 7 thru 11).
That gives Forrest and I enough time to take care the on-the-road basics: sleeping, eating and bathing (actually Hot Rod Magazine insisted on the bathing).
Join us. It’s the ultimate car show. . .
Guess what, Power Dudes and Dudettes? It’s time! That’s right, it’s time once again to plan on the two most important weeks of the
year the 1999 Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour!
Your humble and obedient serfs here at the Mothers® world headquarters have been in constant meetings for the past 4 months, trying to decide
what to drive this year. After due and careful deliberation (and a little bit of arm twisting), we’ve selected THE most important ride in our stable of Cool Cars.
Drum roll, please.
. . . our 1959 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery.
You’ve seen it in magazines, at cruises and in our advertising. Now you’ll be able to see it live and in person. Thanks to highly placed sources
(and a subscription to Hot Rod Magazine) we’ve even come up with the latest itinerary for 1999. And, after 4 years of my wife’s whining, the
powers to be at Hot Rod have pushed the start back a few days so we can spend Mother’s Day (or is it Mothers® Day) with our significant other.
I figure this saves me two weeks on the couch.
So, start planning now. Meet up with us for a day or two, or go all the way the idea is have a good time, and forget about sleep. We’re resting
up now, because May will be a month to remember! The sharp eyed amongst you will even note a new direction this year the southern route through the desert Southwest.
We’re charging up the batteries for our digital camera and laptop computer now. Get your rest now, ’cause you’re gonna need it later.
