Thousands of muscle cars will be on display at the Isle Casino Hotel in Bettendorf Thursday for the 20th Anniversary Hot Rod Power Tour.

The tour stops in seven cities in seven days and Thursday’s stop in the Quad Cities will be day six of the trip.

From noon to 7 p.m. Thursday, people can check out all the cars for free and take part in other activities planned for the day.

The Quad Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau said it expects about 10,000 people to gather at the Isle over the course of the day for the car show. In all, the event should generate about $1.2 million in economic impact for the Quad Cities, representatives with the QCCVB said. Much of that money will come from people on the tour buying gas, eating at local restaurants and staying overnight in hotels.

After the tour’s stop in the QC, car enthusiasts will continue on to the Wisconsin Dells.

People can still register for the last leg of the trip. Registration is $30 and can be done beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Quad Cities Waterfront Convention Center parking lot.

Even if you’re not officially participating, the QCCVB is encouraging people to bring their own “cool car” to the Isle when you go to check out the others.
