    I received this edition of SEMA e-news this morning and figured I would give anyone planning to attend a heads up. Will be nice to see something that hasn't been spit shined for the show!

    SEMA eNews, Vol. 9, No. 43 - October 25, 2006

    ‘DIRTY’ RODS TO BE FEATURED ON THE SEMA SHOW FLOOR

    Six members of the hot rod community—Scott Whitaker, Corky Coker, Kenny and Ray Gollahon, Mike Goodman and Steve Moal—are set to celebrate the grit of hot rodding through the POSIES Driven Dirty Tour. Instead of arriving at the Show with their hot rods on trailers, washed, waxed and ready, these drivers are trekking cross-country from Hamilton, Ohio, to Las Vegas each in a custom hot rod.

    After a five day trip through locations including St. Louis, Missouri and Amarillo, Texas, the trip will conclude in Las Vegas when the rodders roll their road worn rods onto the SEMA Show floor with dirt from the 2,000 mile trip in tact. Automotive journalist Ken Gross, Street Rodder Magazine Editor Brian Brennan, and Powermaster’s Eric Eddleman will join the orders for the journey.

    See the rods in the manufacturer's booths in Hot Rod Alley, North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, throughout the week of the Show.

    The tour sounds like fun. Can you imagine the guys that are in roadsters? I think there's a couple of extra cars tagging along too.

    Uhhh, yeah, but what will they be driving?

    Corky's got a bunch of neat stuff, but I don't know if he owns a hot rod.

    Steve Moal? I don't see him driving any of his stuff cross country- could be wrong.

    They could focus instead on garage builders that drive their stuff cross country ALL the time.

    Just my two cents.

    Rich, check the Coker ads of late...the pickup in the Honest Charlie ad is his. About as hot rod as you can get. There, you can have a penny change.

    Hmmmm.

    I wonder if they stayed in Tulsa for the eve?

    Sounds like they would most likely go through here, down 44 to OKC where they would hit 40 to Amarillo.

    Except for Posie car wasn't driveable, he's trailering his!!:eek: :D

    "He didn’t get the electronics done (wiring) so he trailered his car. He is really catchin some crap over it but being a good sport about it. "Trailering a hot rod on the Driven Dirty Tour….dang…it even sounds bad!"

    "He took a very important picture too of Ken (Dutch) Fenical riding in his wild 46 chev highboy ON THE TRAILER, while Josh Shaw pulled him! I look forward to seeing them in Streetrodder Magazine"

    A cross country hot rod road trip being blogged on the internet....how novel.;) :D

    I have been following along and I do wish them safe travels, and lots of fun.:cool:

    We got in to Vegas on Sunday afternoon. The tour was a blast, first time for me to drive cross country. The joke on the tour was Posie was the Driven Dirty Tour Toad. He took it pretty good. Steve Moal and Bryan Brennan were the troopers, they drove and road the whole way in an open duec roadster, through rain and 26 degree mornings. And if you have never seen a Moal car up close, they are out standing in the workmanship.

    I'm sure you have seen some images of the trip. But the cars were a '32 roadster by Corky Coker and Mike Goodman, '32 Roadster by Steve Moal and Bryan Brennan, '32 Coupe by Kenny and Ray Gollahon, '32 Coupe by Scott Whitaker and Ken Gross, PJ Burchett was driving an original '30 A five window, and I ended up in a hand built car by PJ and his Dad called the TomCat. The TomCat didn't fit in as much with the traditional stuff everyone esle was in but I was just happy to be included.
    We were also join up with by "Jake" Jacobs, in the Grand Canyon, he was in his '29 Panel. I will get some picture posted when I get back home after SEMA.
