After a long Thursday night and Friday night Saturday morning came way to early. I had to get up at the crack of dawn and be ready for Williams final Soccer Game of the year. It was a rainy morning and it didn't seem like it was going to be a fun cruise day at the Alliant Energy Center but I was determined to head in after Soccer.
My friend, Brett, was going to also head in with me to see the cars in Madison after his kids Soccer Game. Thankfully we both coach our kids and we where also going up against each other that morning. Meaning, when the game was done we could both pack up and head out.
A little drizzle as we got to the Alliant Energy Center but it wasn't too bad. Parking on the other hand was a nightmare. My truck registered as #4254 for vehicles parking in the Power Tour Cruise Night area. Now, I don't think there where that many there at that time, but I do not doubt that that many cars came threw the Madison area all day long. It was crazy packed and we just decided to park up on the hill, away from the main area.
The cars where excellent, something for everyone. For Dan, he missed talking with the Factory Five representatives that where there with all of their cars, even the new Coupe they are producing. Pictures of it are below. He will be happy to know that I have a new DVD containing five hours of FFR cars racing and showing off will be coming his way in the future.
Ring Brothers, GM Performance, Edelbrock, and so many other distributors where showing off new goodys. It was nice to actually put your hands on some of the parts that you only see in the catalogs.
About 3-4ish it started to downpour so we got the heck out of Dodge and headed home. I was hoping the rain would hold off, not enough hoods open to see all the fun stuff people had tucked in the engine bay.
Hope for another Tour threw Wisconsin in the future.
