Well the date is near for the Hot Rod power tour to drive though Perry GA.

Mon. June 5 - Perry, GA, Georgia National Fairgrounds

So who is thinking of stopping by to see whats up??? Possibly we could have, as was suggested by Burningsquirrles in another thread, a Steves Nova Site get together...


Perry is about 2 hours, give or take a bit, South of Atlanta on I75....you can actually see the fair grounds from I75. It should be a good time
:) :cool:

ah crap you beat me to it! lol...

we could meet for breakfast somewhere rustic and local in Atlanta and then drive on down to the power tour. That would be cool. "Steve's does Perry" shirts would be funny, too :D:D

i'll probably have to take my volvo. i should get a license plate frame like WFO that says "i'd rather be driving my nova". if i took my nova, i'd probably use up 8 tanks of gas and break down more often than i stop for gas :D

I'm less that 20 minutes from Perry...meeting up in the Atlanta area for breakfast might not be a real option for me:)
BUT for you guys in the Atlanta area that might be a good idea and then you can cruise down to Perry together....:cool:

20 minutes? i thought you lived over on the west-north side over iun the dallas, GA area... or maybe that was tpinova.

what we should do is get a map and put up pinpoints so we know where everyone is, so we can have a place to meet up and drive together. alternatively, we can have brunch in perry after meeting up and cruising from atlanta. hell, we could even do our own thing the day before on sunday.

Naw I'm in Warner Robins...straight south of Atlanta.....I'm not sure that is TPI either...I think he is from the Locust Grove area...somewhere around the place the new Summit store is...I think....

Well as more people come on board for this I'm sure we can figure out the details...we have a little less then a month to work it out...;)

Most of the crowd doing the full tour will arrive around noon. They should all be there by 2 or 3PM. Not everybody travels together. We chose to leave early every morning to avoid so much stop and go. (I wanted to use my cruise control.) Many others did the same. Especially vendors.

You will not be considered part of the tour unless you have one of these. You have to have all of you paperwork in order to get one.



Actually Hot Rod Magazine was theatening to bar rental cars from the tour after so many were entered last year. I don't know if they acted on that or not.

If you want to show a real Stevesnovasite presence at the Perry stop of the tour, I have a few suggestions. First, get a list of who is going and were they are coming from. How cool would it be for the guys from further north (NC, SC, Tenn, etc) to drive in with the group from Atlanta? Talk about a mini-tour. Second, how about a window decal or tag with the site name. Third, a sizable group of Novas parked together at the venue wouldn't hurt.

If you have never been to one of these, it's hard to image 2000 vehicles at one venue. It's impossible to see it all in one day. There were cars & people in last years tour that I never saw or found. If you don't meet up prior to arriving at the venue, you may not find the group at all. Seriously.

big red x in that other post... what's the pic?

and yeah, if we all cruise together we'd have to put something up and weat a common shirt or hat, or a decal of some sort. it'd be nice if we got at least a dozen or so of us.

How about something sooner... Summit has cruises every Monday, maybe we could all take off early and head on down there. Just a thought. Traffic would be a killer :eek: Or how about doing it on Memorial Day?
