Not only do we get free stuff, but the sponsors also have some really unique cars parked around them. I was impressed by a Ring Brothers (big time performance car builders) totally custom yellow and black DeTomasso Pantera. While we were at the Edelbrock trailer, I made sure to thank the Edelbrock guys for convincing me to buy the supercharger for the Corvette (it's been a really fun year with that puppy installed) and we also offered our condolences on Vic Edelbrock, Jr's passing away. He was a Power Tour staple. He would long haul his supercharged Corvette and sit for lengths of time signing autographs. The automotive world will certainly miss him.

After we made our rounds, we checked out some of the cars in the parking lot and then went back to the cars. Pictures cannot begin to demonstrate the sheer awesomeness of thousands of show cars (and a few "Plan B" normal cars) all gathered in one parking lot. Whatever your fancy, it's probably here somewhere.

Camaros of all generations were by far the most plentiful. There are also Vipers, rat rods with wicked turbo engines, we counted at least 4 Mustang IIs. We even saw a 1970's tricked out motor home. This event is an gearhead's dream.

Some of the amazing cars today included a 1971 'Cuda convertible, a Mercury Cougar on a custom car hauler that may once have been a fire truck,

It doesn't look like much...

We spent as much time at the venue today and took full advantage of the great weather. There's a heat wave hitting many of our Tour stops this year and who knows how hot it might be tomorrow or the next day. Tara talked to tons of people about the Acadian. The car draws more questions than Alex Trebec.
|Oh, it's a Canadian car, eh? You're from where?|
