Mike has been on the road with his 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II for 5 days of the tour plus the trip to the beginning of the Tour in Charlotte. Although there are two more days in the Tour this is Mike’s last day and last report. I what to thank Mike for his dedication to supply us with a recap of each of his days on the road. It has been entertaining and enlightening. I hope he can do it again next year! Thanks Mike Callahan for a job well done and thanks to Lou Whitfield for building a Spoiler II many years ago that is as capable and flexible as this one.
Day 5. It’s Wednesday and we are at Indy drag strip. A lot of drag racing history here! The Power Tour has 2 more stops after today but this will be my last stop this year. This was a great HRPT for me. I have talked to hundreds of people from all over the U.S. about my car and Bonneville. Even one guy from Australia was telling be about the salt racing down under. The Mercury did well in the rain and traffic and out on the open road. The old Merc has good bones. Good job, Lou. Thousands of new people have seen and photographed the Cyclone and asked questions about the car. The 25th HRPT was the best.
Thank you, Mike.
