June 13 – Lamar Dixon Expo Center – LONG HAULERS ONLY*

The official tentative route has been posted - http://www.raceit.com/image...ctions%20EMAILED.pdf

for alternate suggestions to avoid congestion / construction keep an eye on http://www.bangshift.com/fo...015-power-tour-route

For those of you that don't get to Northern Illinois very often, the Pontiac Oakland Museum in Pontiac IL is not that far off the route.

Make your reservations now, I likely will be doing the 1st 4 stops. Watch for more info, it would be great if we could get Fieros together on the tour. We did a pretty good job and had a pretty good time last year ( http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/093583.html )

They screwed up the Dells so badly no one wanted to go back. They had everyone (participants and spectators) going in one entrance to the Chula Vista.

New company doing the organizing this year.

Will be doing the first 4 stops at least too. Hopefully we'll find a passenger or roommates to be able to do more of not the whole thing.

Very tempting. I'll have to mark this on my calendar.
I could possibly make the TN - LA stops. Getting up to Wisconsin for the start would be a stretch.

So I put everything into Google Maps today.

I used Biloxi Mississippi Coliseum as the venue, because Travelplanners has Biloxi as the TBA city. I noticed New Orleans was half way between Biloxi and Baton Rouge... Than got me thinking??? ( i know that can get dangerous)


Would it be worth it to go to the French Quarter the night we are in Biloxi? and meet up with the route the next day?

Anyone else think of this?

I am going to book a hotel somewhere near the French Quarter while i ponder this this a little more, and also figure out if I am going to Long Haul or not. Funds are going to be an issue, whole family is planning a trip to Disney this year, and family first!

I don't know if I'd be up for about a two week road trip in one of the Fieros. Maybe in

a more comfortable driving experience.

If anyone has never done the Power Tour, I highly recommend it. I've been doing the long hauls since '03 and love every single one of them. Other tend to be better and more memorable but thats all in what you make it. I've never do it in my Fiero and scared to but a great experience. Just realize that its 3000+ cars making the same left turn, getting off the same exit, and pulling into the same venue. BUT its also the same people who are out at the hotels partying and having a good time and making you realize why you got addicted to cars in the first place.

Why never in a fiero? Have done long hauls and partials in mine.

But everything else you have said is true, and awesome to see and be part of.

I've done four long hauls 2005, 2009, 2010, 2011 and a partial 2007 in my Fieros. The two Fieros I have taken on them have well over 100K and I'm not as young as I used to be. It is getting harder and harder getting in and out of the Fieros. I did drive my 87 GT up to Warwick, RI in September , then to Maine and back to Florida, 3300 miles + in a week and a half.

I may finally get to make a few stops on the Power Tour this time. I am going to keep an eye on this and re think my plans.

I can see two cities that could make that TBD. Mobile, AL and Jackson, MS. Although a third possibility would be Montgomery, AL.
Mobile and Jackson are roughly half way between Birmingham and Baton Rouge. The addition of Montgomery to my list seems to me to be remote as it would be a rather short trip from Birmingham.
But we shall see what the organizers come up with.

Mobil was the last stop in 2010 and was one of those congested downtown stops and a maze to get into and out of.

Take a good photo of each side of your Fiero then have some decals made up and put them on this one.

The 87 has 150,000+ on the original engine etc. I don't know if I can still survive about two weeks driving in a Fiero any more.

Old Lar is right.......Mobile was an awful stop that year. Downtown venues have never been our favorites. After Phil doing 13 Power Tours and me several, the last one in 2012, we think we are Power Toured out because they keep going to the same cities. We'll remember all the fun we had and all the people we've met over the years and still stay in contact with, which is just one thing that makes Power Tour so much fun. We've got some great memories and seen a lot of the U.S.

I live in Gulfport MS. This is the next town west of Biloxi. You can get to the French Q in N.O. in about 1 1/2 hrs. IF............you don't get stopped in traffic in N.O. If you don't have a hotel in N.O. park at the "river walk mall" Do NOT leave anything in the car to tempt some body to break into it. Do NOT be with out a sober person to protect you. If you get down here, I have a big yard and a tire machine, car trailer.

I have registered and have hotel reservations. No information on Biloxi (June 11) is a go or no go.

I'm thinking of driving up to the Dells prior to the Power Tour and doing some "site seeing" in that part of the country.

I'm taking the Tucson. I'll probably drive up to the Dells, the week before and do some site seeing in that area (Le Claire and Antique Archeology) before driving over to Madison and the Power Tour.

Some of us from NTFC are planning joining the tour. Nothing concrete as of yet just an idea a couple of us are throwing around.
If we do make it where thinking of hooking up in Memphis.

Does anyone know if John Callies will make an appearance at the Memphis stop, would like to see his car again this time not on a lift.

thanks...

I'm thinking about the possibility of doing the Power Tour 2015 run, Gulfport & Baton Rouge. Having said that, I have never done the POwer Tour and really don't know much about it.

A couple of questions: 1. Is it worth it ? & 2. What to expect?

Oh, was planning on taking my '86 GT. It made the Cruz'n the Coast run back in October so it should be god to go come June.
