Yes, will make the trip again this year. 1994 Caprice Wagon pulling a teardrop trailer.
It' a adventure for sure.

I need to be in Detroit on thursday before Power Tour, have family to see there. Are you going?

OK, I'll look for you on Fri. and Sat. I'm going to Warren to check in early, then go to the Linkenfelter collection.
I will be camping out by the Proving Grounds.
Have a safe trip.

I plan on being there bright and early Saturday morning. At this point I'm not yet sure if I'm going with the wagon or my 79 malibu. depends on the weather.

The long range forcast is calling for rain, so if it's rain I'll be there with the wagon.

Oldguy, Here's a writeup on how to post pictures from elsewhere in the forum. It should help you. The key is that they CAN NOT be loaded directly from your computer, they have to be stored online somewhere, like at Photobucket, then linked.

I'll have to post my pics up when I get the chance. OldGuy, I talked to you for a short bit at the tour. I was the guy who said he had a box wagon. Definitely think I might have to run the Tour next summer if I have the time... it definitely seems like it would be an awesome experience.

Yeah that's alot of wagons! I wonder how many of them know about this forum...
I didn't see Old Guy's or the Blue 59 from Florida either.

Looks like it'd be a great time to go do...

Great pictures of the Wagons from the Power Tour 2012. I just logged on this forum and noticed my 91 White Caprice Wagon. You got some good shots of it. Thanks. It was a great show. The 4th one we have attended. Alot of great rides there.

Maybe as it gets closer I will hook up with you at Woodward so I can check out your wagon...I may not be taking mine though......I would like to have my 73 vette completed by then.

Whats up with the RMW driver's rear door and sail panel, but the Caprice rear door and side glass on the passenger side? bizarre.

Then again, I saw both a Caprice sedan with a 91-94 rear quarter glass on the driver's side, and 95-96 rear quarter glass on the passenger side, as well as a Caprice with a small mirror on the driver's door and a big mirror on the passenger's on eBay today.

not exactly, they spun it out on the track and slapped the driver's side into a guard rail so they replaced the damaged area with roadmaster wagon bits. the owner found the paperwork about that in the car

Got to love a car that leaves you down in the driveway.
After 5,000 miles on the power tour the 94 wagon started
running rough while I was moving it in the yard. Will let you
know what it is once I work on it. Just glad it didn't do it when
we was way out west. Good car. haha
