Speaking of that number 6 car, I had a chance to watch Cotton personally unload it and drive it on to a show field a few years back, check out the video below!

#HRPT14 Quick Reference Guide

I wanted to put together a quick reference for those going on the Hot Rod Power Tour, something you can pull up on your phone and access easily on the road. There is tons of good information out there, but accessing it in a hurry via a mobile phone could be a chore. So I’m going to put as much important information on one page as I can find/think of.


For ease of access, this will be available all week at the following short link: save this, write it down, remember it, share it, etc, etc!

Car Show Event Coverage

5th Annual Georgia MTN Moonshine Cruiz-in August 8-9-10th

We will be on hand with coverage from the kick off party on Thursday night as well as the event on Friday.

Saturday night, August the 10th we will be in Hayesville, NC for the Annual Jacky Jones Cruise In at Jacky Jones Dodge. If you are anywhere close you need to come to this, its probably the biggest annual cruise in Western North Carolina has to offer!

If I can fit it in I will also be attending the car show and possibly the cruise in the night before at the Mountain High BBQ Festival in Franklin. It’s not high priority because I’m not a big fan of shows that number one, limit the year of entry, sorry to those 1974 and older!. And number two I’m not big on any show that is going to “limit” the amount of cars they take in based on space. If you are going to have a car show you better be able to park as many cars as you have show up. But anyway that is neither here nor there. I’ll still slide by at some point and take a few pictures.

August 16-18th we will be in Clarkesville, GA for the 36th Annual NE GA Antique Auto Show. We will have coverage from all three days!

August 23-25th we will be in Carlisle, PA for Corvette’s at Carlisle. This will be my first trip to Carlisle since 2007 and I have to say I am very excited to be making what used to be an annual trip for me!

August 31st will be the last and BEST show we cover all of August! That is the show that I put on each year for JDRF, the 7th Annual JDRF Charity Car Show in Clayton, GA. For more information on the show be sure and visit our sister site

We also plan to be at several local cruise nights between now and then promoting our JDRF show so look for coverage from those events as well!
