So, who all is planning to attend? Thought about doing the Darlington/Raleigh/Charlotte leg, but decided to just attend the two events closest to home, Darlington and Charlotte. TomJ and I are planning on meeting up at least at Darlington. If you plan on attending post a phone number so we can get in touch with you at one of those two... and other attending AMCers can contact each other along the way. I have a shop available between Hampton and Darlington if someone gets in trouble. About 18 miles (20 minutes) from I-20 exit 39 (Fairview Road). So it's not an easy tow, but I have a lift available and there are parts stores within five miles.

If you don't want to post your phone number, send it to me in a PM with your e-mail address and name (not just handle here!) and I'll send an e-mail out to everyone a few days before the 9th.

My name/number: Frank Swygert, 803-604-6548. Call me if you get to Darlington. Might set up a dinner meeting somewhere, but most close-by restaurants are likely to be full.

I would love to attend the Chattanooga show, if I get my rear main seal / oil leak done by then. I have a garage and a decent tool collection at my house in Manchester TN which is half way between Nashville and Chattanooga. If you are traveling from bowling green to Chattanooga on I-24 (which you probably will be) I am only 7 miles from I-24. Will update my attendance status. Call if you need help 908-601-5883 - Scott. . Saz2686@gmail.com

TRAFFIC ADVISORY! Bonaroo music festival in Manchester TN June 7 - 10. I-24 in Manchester will be slam packed on Saturday / Sunday. This is the preferred route from bowling green to Chattanooga. Typically Thursday and Friday are the worst for traffic in this area, and the interstate usually flows fairly well the entire time. Stay away from the town of Manchester the entire event. It’s crazy.

We're doing the whole tour. Leaving early Saturday morning from northwest Atlanta up I75 to head to bowling green. We'll be in a red 70 amx. There are four vehicles in our group but we are the only amc! Jeff and Lynn

I'll send you a pm with our info.

There was also another thread on here about the power tour too

The wife (Jane) and I are planning to do the whole tour in our yellow 67 Ambo if a couple of things work out. We'll most probably be there and we are looking forward to meeting everyone--- specially AMC'rs.

We had to back out due to family issue and not being able to get any road time on the car. Maybe next time.

i'm going. driving out from Los Angeles. visiting friends in Santa Fe NM, so i'll leave for Bowling Green from there. out I40, but i plan on driving through the ozarks area, north-ish OK City.

will do some dropping in on the east coast (HI FRANK) (HI MARK) afterwards, head home from there. i'm considering driving to Wilmington SC so that i can drive the exact and entire length of I40 (it ends in Barstow, i'm often there) and take a stop-action movie of the whole drive. why? i dunno :-)

i figure i'll be on the road most of the month of june.

It's an easy drive from Raleigh to the end of I-40. It's only a few hours. And ony few more from Concord where the end of the power tour is. You end up Wilmington NC though. 😁

Hopefully see you during the tour.

my only excuse is that NC and SC seem like tiny dots on the map, very far away... once i get closer i'm sure they will become distinctly different :-)

likely i'll see you there!

maybe we should work up a way to contact each other for a get together? i know well-intentioned plans tend to collapse in the chaos of an event like this but we ought to try!

Would be interesting seeing a yellow Ambo and a.... multi-hued 62 American roadster convoying over the country...
