Hot Rod Power Tour 2009 – Day 4

hot rod power tour 2009 day4

We woke once again to grey skies in South Bend this morning. We hit the road early and arrived in good time for the lunch meet and shop Tour at Ididit. By this stage it was starting to warm up and we hadn’t seen any rain. It was cool to tour the shop and I bought a Grant steering wheel for my Camaro. Hot Dogs were provided for all.

We got to the Metro Park area just after one o’clock and by this time the sun was beating down. I’ve stuggled to capture the scale of the show here so I took a picture of the car park around 2pm…

This was the same car park about 2 hours later…

..and that wasn’t the only car park either! We were king and queen of the lawn chairs this afternoon, we found a great spot by the entrance to the park and watch a constant stream of cars come in for a couple of hours in the glorious sunshine.

Then we went back to our hotel in Warren to check in, only to find a local cruise night at the bowling alley right next door. This is the view from the window…

We went to check it out. Nearly all these cars have nothing to do with the Power Tour, just another couple of hundred Rod and Muscle Cars that have come out to play.

Let’s hope the sun is here to stay. See more from today in the flickr set.
