FROM PAGE A1 Some drivers call in advance to request that Duell have certain types of oil on hand, and he complies. It's grueling work, but Duell loves it. "It's a blast," he said. "The cars are pretty cool. It's amazing the imagination these people have in making the cars. They'll take motors and transmissions from '96 and '97 vehicles and put them into a '52 something and make it operate like the cars we drive today. "It's amazing how they can adapt things and make them work perfectly." Duell started in September restoring a 1976 Pontiac GTO, and he's incorporating many ideas he's gotten from Hot Rod drivers in past years. Come next year, he hopes to drive the GTO to Denver and join the Power Tour caravan to Goodland. Missy Fletcher of Petersen Events in Los Angeles, which coordinates the tour, said the fourth annual event includes many types of cars, from antique cars of the 1930s to 1998 models. In 1994, Purvis said, Chrysler put its prototype Prowler on the tour, two years before the cars were mass produced. Hot Rod challenge The tour started four years ago as a challenge, Fletcher said. Readers of Hot Rod were used to seeing photographs in the magazine of cars Hot Rod editors had rebuilt. But many didn't believe the cars would run. The tour was seen as a way to prove the cars roadworthy. Also, it was a way for the editors to meet readers and to learn of their interests. Thus, readers were invited along. Fletcher said 15 Hot Rod editors, publishers and other staffers are on this year's tour. "They skip from car to car, driving with people," Fletcher said. "That way they can meet and talk to the people who read the magazine." The first tour included 40 drivers who went the distance from California to Michigan. This year, Fletcher estimated more than 450 drivers will complete the trip. But more than 11,000 cars are 7t's a blast. The cars are pretty cool... It's amazing how they can adapt things and make them work perfectly." Stan Duell owner of NAPA Auto Parts store, Goodland expected to join the caravan for portions of the trip, she said. Drivers can join for free at any Interstate entrance ramp. The cars travel about 444 miles a day, stopping every 100 miles for gasoline, Fletcher said. "Muscle cars aren't known for their good gas mileage," she said of the frequent stops. Each evening, the cars park in another town, and spectators are invited to look over the hot rods and talk to the drivers. Fletcher said musical entertainment and children's games are offered, and catered dinners are available for people who've registered. "Every driver is more than willing to talk about his car," Fletcher said. "Ninety percent of them restored the cars themselves." In the first year of the tour, Fletcher said, organizers tried to operate as a caravan, with all the cars together all the time. But with 500 to 1,000 cars, that's almost impossible. Still, every car stops at the same place for gasoline within about half an hour, which Fletcher admits is "nuts." "We usually call ahead and let people know what time we're coming, and we let the restaurants know," Fletcher said. "Otherwise, we just drive people nuts, and they just want to shoot us." How to see the cars Salinans will be afforded the opportunity to see how those 500 to 1,000 cars accomplish the gas-up chore. The drivers are scheduled to fill their tanks at gas stations at Ninth Street and Interstate 70 about 10 a.m. Tuesday, Fletcher said. The station operators hadn't been notified as of Friday afternoon, but Aaron Burr, manager of Bosselman Travel Center at 1944 N. Ninth, is sure his employees can handle the rush. "They hit us, Petro 2 — all of us — on a Saturday last year, and ,• they didn't notify us," Burr said. - ;' "We managed. They just all pulled • (' up to the fuel desk, and we ran-; them through as fast as we could. "•' "They were lined up for the -4 pumps, but they were good about pulling forward when they were done and coming in and paying." . ; ; Burr said the truck drivers who i happened to be at Bosselman at > the time enjoyed taking a gander. • at the cars. • << Lt. Stephen Ragan of the Kansas- Highway Patrol said spectators, ; should be careful where they . stand if they want to watch the-'., show. Pedestrians aren't allowed on the Interstate, but may stand on the grass beyond the exit ramps. ' Standing on the overpass at • Hedville Road, west of Salina, also is a possibility, Ragan said. ' • In Goodland, Purvis said people" line the overpasses and the city streets to see the cars. Purvis expects the tour cars to fill the vocational-technical school's main parking lots, but he invites spectators to park else- , where and join the fun. "They just might have to walk a block or two," he said. In past years, tour participants have pretty much taken over the town, renting all the motel rooms and filling the restaurants. This year is no exception. Callers wanting motel rooms for Monday night are being referred to Colby and Oakley, Purvis said. Purvis said the tour's stop at the school is "a wonderful recruiting tool." Besides that, it's just good fun, he said. So much fun that Purvis plans to join the action. He'll hop in his restored 1960 El Camino and make the trek with the group from Goodland to Kansas City, Mo. "If the car will make it, that is," he said with a laugh. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Municipal court CORRECTION Because of a Journal error, a story in Friday's edition was incorrect in saying that the Rev. Fred Phelps would preach to United Methodists at their Kansas West Annual Conference in Salina later this month. Phelps, a Topekan known for his anti-gay crusade, plans to protest at the conference, where he has no official involvement. T TWIN MURDER Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.

'Evil twin' sentenced for murdering sister By The Associated Press SANTA ANA, Calif. — Rejecting pleas for leniency and a new trial, a judge Friday sentenced a woman to 26 years to life in prison for conspiring to kill her twin sister in what became known as the "evil twin" case. Jeen "Gina" Han, 24, convicted in November with two teen-agers, told the judge before sentencing that she never had any intention of killing her sister, Sunny Han. "I'm deeply sorry for everything that has happened," she said tearfully, adding that she loved her sister. But Superior Court Judge Eileen Moore said, "It is obvious Ms. Han is a danger to society, particularly against her family. She has repeatedly committed crimes against her family." Jeen Han and the two teen-age accomplices were convicted of TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.". — Romans 13:10 conspiracy to commit murder, residential burglary and false imprisonment.
