HOT ROD Power Tour is one of our favorite events each year, when we get the chance to hit the road alongside our fellow Chevrolet Performance enthusiasts for seven days of cruising and talking cars. The schedule for next year’s event, the 25th annual, has already been released and we simply can’t wait.
HOT ROD Power Tour is less than two months away and we can’t wait to hit the road to see so many friends. A full schedule is available here. While we wait, we’ve decided to take a look back at last year’s event and some of the incredible engines that are part of the trip. Enjoy this Flashback Friday to a gallery we originally posted in June 2018.
Throughout the 2018 edition of HOT ROD Power Tour, we provided several behind-the-scenes looks at the Chevrolet Performance Motor Medic. In fact, you can even check out a photo gallery.
HOT ROD Power Tour is known as a showcase for some of the nation’s wildest builds. For today’s Flashback Friday, we’re revisiting Michael Richardson’s 1995 BMW E36 M3 from Power Tour’s 2018 edition. Under the hood is an LSA engine. The story is below.
Each year on HOT ROD Power Tour there are thousands of people participating and hundreds of individuals providing support. GM engineer Rich Downing does a little of both.
Welcome to Flashback Friday, also known as #FBF. This is where we revisit the very best articles from years past that are still relevant. We’ll show off some old favorites such as feature cars, racing coverage or even new part releases. We comb through our archives and if we say something along the lines of, “Wow. That was a great story.” there’s a good chance it will make its way into our #FBF series. This week, we take a look at Roberto Berdiel’s 1963 Grand Sport Tribute, built by Superformance. We met Roberto on the 2017 HOT ROD Power Tour (HRPT) and his car still stands out as one of our favorite features we did this year. Keep scrolling and you’ll see why. Also, make sure to watch the video we made with Roberto on the HRPT to hear the LS376/525 crate engine roar.
HOT ROD Power Tour is special. It’s not just the cars, or the driving, or the seven cities visited in seven days. Each of those would certainly be worthy of the trip in their own right. But what makes Power Tour a yearly pilgrimage for so many is the people. Over and over again, that sentiment is echoed throughout the week by folks from all walks of life, who make their living in so many different ways all over the country.
Among the many stunning Chevrolet Performance fleet vehicles making the long haul on this year’s HOT ROD Power Tour is one celebrating its 30th anniversary. Yet while the 1988 Monte Carlo SS is a blast from the past, it’s outfitted with all the modern amenities to perform in the future.
Larry Miyamoto is detail-oriented. It only takes one look at his pristine 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS to know its owner wants things done right.
