    2018 HRPT June 9-15

    Well,
    For those interested, Hot Rod Magazine has announced the 2018 HRPT dates are from the 9-15th of June, starting near Bowling Green, KY.

    No stops or venues have been announced, but at least people now have the dates and can request vacation time.

    This year I am planning on doing the entire tour with my dad who lives in FL and is 77, so you never know how many more times I will get this chance. He is the one that is largely responsible for me getting involved with cars to begin with, so I thought this would be a great trip for him as well.

    Hopefully some more SCCOA/TCCOA/TBU etc; folks can join in.

    Smitty

    Registration List:

    Name--------------Board Name--------Driving From---------Tour Length/Stops


    James Smith (Smitty)---Quik95SC--------Clarksville, TN--------------Long Haul
    Tim Groth ---------------Tim Groth----------Roanoke, VA--------------Long Haul
    Ira Robinson------------- Ira R.-------------Sarasota, FL--------------Long Haul

    That's not so bad. It is awfully close to the EPIC Drive though. I don't know that I can talk the Boss into doing both. Well, there's only one way to find out...

    That's not a valid excuse. I plan on driving my car on the Epic Drive, and its not exactly set up for it. And I've been on 3 HRPTs with the same setup and haven't had any issues other than getting crappy mileage.

    With both events so close to Nashville, there is no excuse for me not to attend both so planning on doing so.

    Epic Drive will likely have some Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky cars join us as Colonel Don Miller was really stoked about our club when he hung around at the 2017 SC-XR7 Shootout.

    It's going to be a great 2018.

    Seasons Greetings,

    I have alot of stuff to do to the car so it does not turn into the epic tow-bill. Everytime it rains i loose a DIS and i have a Mystery trans leak i need to figure out. I have not completely ruled it out but i have ALOT to do before i can make the trip. I have a digital trans temp guage to install also. The bad thing about the epic drive is the fact that i have to go through the mountains just to get there. i can cruise 60mph all day long but it gets rough on stuff doing much interstate with 3.73s and no lockup. I contimplated putting a stock 3.27 diff in for the trip but i am not sure if i'd end up with high trans temps.

    I would love to do this, but not sure I can get a week plus off of work AND escape the family that long! 2400 miles round-trip for me. That's a haul, but probably the closest one to me for awhile. Also means I won't do Carlisle this year. Decisions, decisions.
