Default 71 2006 Hot Rod Power Tour Pics

I set up a page on tripod so you can see more of the show and where we went. So take a look and post up any comments about the show it was fun doing part of the tour. Funny thing i did get caught in the rain with the tops off and had to stop and put them on.

I hope you like the pics. here is the link to the pics.

Nice shots!

I think the burnout you got was my buddy Jason blue nova smoking the drag radials through the starting line. If not might have been Kurt Urban's Nova.

Sweet pics. Did you get any of the Yellow Ultima GTR? It's got a twin turbo 402 LSx motor in it! Used to be a N/A LS6. I am curious as to how it is doing with the new set-up and have not seen any pics or stats yet.

That Ultima GTR was staying at the same hotel as me Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. I guess his car was more special than all of the other sweet rides as he decided to park his car under the check-in port all three nights.

I also heard a few rumors at one of the parking lot drinking sessions that a yellow Ultima GTR was pulled over for double the speed limit. Not sure if it was true, but sounds like the same guy.

One of the sweetest ls setups is an LS2 '402' with a Harrop intake. It's a 69 black camaro and I have a bunch of pics I'll upload when I get home. We stayed at the same hotel last night and we were chatting for a while about the car. It's very nicely done.

Yeah, that sounds like him. I got a ride in the car last year when it was still the LS6 and it was amazingly fast then. Now it must be crazy with the TT!

thanks for your comments. I had a blast. this was my second tour. I was only able to got to kissimmee and it rained and i had work. But this time i was able to go to gainsville.

One of my favorite pics was when i took of my side morror of the cruisers behind me coming around the turn. I had no idea that it was going to come out while driving.

Id have to say if the tour ever comes you way GO TO IT. I can thank my sis for getting me the pass for the show she is way cool.

it was nice meeting you in Orlando. was lookin for you throughout the tour but was unable to catch up with you. maybe we'll run into each other at some local events.

I was with Jeff in the GTR.

The TT setup had not been tested so he put the old LS6 back in.

We were definitelty doing 2xthe limit at times, but didnt get busted... 24 hours drive straight Chicago>Florida. I have an international driving licence that doesnt accumulate points so we got on it "a bit" on the way down.

Jeff did get pulled for doing burnouts.... apparently the cops dont like the same sort of donuts we do! They let him off after 2 hours of threats.

He also managed to break and axle on the way home (like 5 mins out of Englishtown) We got stuck in traffic and a car full of guys were calling for a burnout.... he did one and sheared an axle. Lucky Mark Koch dragged his car 4 hours up to us and we took one of his axles off to get home.


Had a blast!! His car is ******* nuts with the 500hp LS6. When he gets that TT 6.6L in there that thing is going to be insane.

Cant wait to get mine on the road now. Gonna try to drag mine over from Hong Kong next year.

I have this one other one of the red one. I wish the owner was around so he could have put the hood down. And here are a few pics of some other old school birds that were there.
