Hot Rod's Power Tour 2003

Each year, Hot Rod Magazine puts together what they refer to as Power Tour.  This is a special event which invites people from across the country and around the globe to bring out their special interest or "powerful" rides and tour across a pre-determined path across a piece of our country.  Not all the cars participating are "old cars", though many are nice vintage hot rods or street rods.  The event usually draws out a good variety of cars and people from every walk of life as well. 


This year, the Power Tour ran from Nashville, TN to Arlington, TX.  Thousands of cars participated in the event along with even more people.   Several large corporate sponsors help to make this a success each year with funding and offer a variety of gifts, give-aways, and special events or meals for the participants.  Towns and people all along the way are more than happy and over-joyed to see the long string of cars cruise through their towns.  A few people from the Valley participated in the Hot Rod Power Tour 2003 and have all passed on how much they enjoyed their time and are looking forward to participating next year and in future years as well. 


Danny and Yvonne Black of Mission, TX were among a few of the locals who participated in the tour this year.  Yvonne kept a journal of events and submitted her pictures and words to us.
