hot rod power tour at my home town!

that was pretty cool. rochester is chok full of ricers everywhere... they didnt know what to think about 1000 superior automobiles stomping around their territory. it was pretty cool seeing all these cars, but once you have seen every surviving olds 442 or 69 Camero in America the "wow" factor just kinda fades. one thing me and my buddies were saying was "Oh my god guys look is that a suped up fourth generation Camero?" "wow! really? a fourth generation Camero?" "where?" "over there! quick lets go see it!" "this is so cool I've never seen a suped up fourth generation Camero before!"... its "amazing" just how many people have already stuck a LS7 in their fourth generation camero.

oh yeah....

zero MN12s

I hear you on the 69 Camaro's. See them all the time at shows. Not so many Olds though, might just be the area.

I'm not a fan of the 4th gen. slo-maro, but I do respect the LS7. IIRC, doesn't that motor pump out near 500HP stock? I'd rather stick that LS7 in a 70 Monte SS and drive that, but I'm a bigger fan of the 1st gen Monte's than most Camaro's so I'm probably biased

I don't think the general hot-rod community sees the MN-12 platform as possible muscle car. An 11 year old platform that had an anemic 4.6L doesn't really compare to some of those cars. Don't get me wrong, I love my 95, but it's never going to be a head turner like some of the older muscle unless I drop some serious $$ into it, and even then you'll never see the return on the car or mods if you sell compared to a good restored muscle car.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

LIAR!!!!

I did the whole Power Tour. And in a day or so will have all the pics from it up. But yes, I was the only MN12 that did the whole tour. There was a couple Mark VIII at a couple stops, but that was it.

I pulled in about 2pm and was in the very last paved parking lot between 2 Mustangs. Unless you walked the entire venue at Rochester you couldve easily missed me. Had a bad spot.
