Back from the Power Tour


Recommended Posts

Made it home safely from a week in car guy's heaven.

 

Saw a few 71-73 Mustangs on the Power Tour. We made the long haul in my original '73 Grande with minimal trouble. We had to change out a master cylinder that blew out the back half during a panic stop in heavy rains on a Houston freeway. Besides mine we saw a '73 Mach, 2 '73 Verts and a couple more 71-72's.

 

Saw a shot of our car in an online article that's on many sites from Hot Rod to MSN to Mustang 360. Also have some video someone shot of us cruising down the interstate, but I'll have to figure out how to post it.

It was quite the trip. 7 cities, 7 days, 2552 miles round trip in a heat wave with no A/C.

Awesome. Good to hear it went well. I want to do the tour once, but my concern would be driving my baby in the rain. Last year the tour started here in Madison and spent some time at the show. It was a good time!

Sounds like a great time, with the exception of no A/C!

I saw a bunch of pics on FB from my friend James Grimes and his 280,000 mile Mercury Marauder. I'll hafta check and see if he has any of your car, too. He's the only parts guy at Advance Auto Parts locally that's worth his own salt.
