    Is anyone planning to do the Hot Rod Power Tour this year? Dates are June 6-13. Tour starts in Madison Wi. & ends in Baton Rouge La. I plan to take "Lucifer" my Hellcat on the tour & interested if any other Forum members are planning to attend all or part.

    I've done the tour a couple of times, but this year seems to be well east of me. I like when they take Rt 66, the mother road, runs right through here. So I will probably pass this year...probably won't have my HC by then anyway.

    I did the whole Power Tour last Year as a Long Hauler in my SRT. It was a pretty fun time. I did get pretty frustrated with a couple of the venues though…waiting in a line of traffic over 1-1/2 hours for a couple of them.

    We did the first three stops on last year's power tour (Charlotte, NC thru Charleston, WV) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Just wish we had the time off to do the entire trip. A bit surprised that they aren't heading further west this year.

    I don't think we were ever more than 20 or so miles from a gas station, at least on the legs that we did. A good number of the cars on the power tour were 50's-70's vintage and, in terms of gas mileage, they make the Hellcat look like a Prius.:)

    Agreed. My other Muscle cars average about 10-12 mpg on a good day. That is one reason I'm taking the Hellcat.

    The ride from NC to WV through the 2 lane road in the mountains was probably the best cruising road of the whole tour IMO...

    Actually the Charleston WV value was the longest wait of the entire tour. I must have seen 6 cars overheated on the side of the road to the entrance from sitting in line so long. Then when we finally crept up and got to the entrance...there was no parking.

    Just read the feedback from last year's tour...I'm far from alone on the frustration with that venue.

    Venues for 2015 seem on the surface to be more suited to large volumes of autos. We shall see. In addition to WV last year I've heard that Wisconsin Dells was also a mess. Originally coming from Wi I can believe it.
