I am kicking myself right now. A friend with a hot rod shop in town is taking "The Special Bus" on the Hod Rod Power Tour and invited me to ride along. I should have went, his posts looks like it's a blast and the tour isn't until Saturday. So far he has driven from Camarillo CA to Madison WI. The tour starts Saturday in Madison and ends up in Baton Rouge LA over a week. If anyone from here goes to any of the stops say hi to Jim, his Bus isn't hard to spot.

Yeah, I was on the fence and decided against it. If you go to the power tour posts on Facebook the Special Bus is already a crowd favorite and the run hasn't even started.

It is cool he drove it 2200 miles to the tour, will do the complete tour and drive it home while passing the trailer queens.

A update on the bus during the tour. Nothing broke, it made the long haul and back home. 5K miles round trip. The only issue was a hole in the AC condenser, that was self inflicted by the owner. He paid the price. If you can find the pictures of it at Camarillo Cruise Night on the page above or the special bus Facebook page you can see my LUV parked next to it Jim does awesome work. If anyone was at SEMA the Cuda owned by McCloud clutches was his build.

EDIT: on the page above the picture of my truck is not there, let me try to find it.

Found it. This is a cruise night we do in my city 6 times a year.
