Russo and Steele Tent Collapse

This is what our friends in the Collector Car Hobby were dealing with at Russo and Steele in Phoenix on Friday.

Could this happen to you? Think twice.

Very glad no one was seriously injured and the cars can be repaired. We have all seen similar things happen at a smaller scale at car shows when the wind picks up and all those shade tents take to the air. It was stated by one person from Russo and Steele that the main auction tent stayed in place because it had side walls and the ones that got airborne had no side walls.

The next time I use our shade tent we will put the side walls up!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
