Nashville Auto Fest 2018

Nashville Auto Fest 2018

  For the 27th year the Nashville Auto Fest was held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

2013 Detroit Autorama Ridler Award

Getting Respect

Getting Respect

I have found that most people, car folks or not, respect other peoples property. However, there is a certain portion of the general public that are absolutely oblivious to respecting others’ property; heck they don’t even know what a high quality object is. It is these people who make car shows stressful and leaving your […]

Set Up Day at the 2012 Muscle Car Corvette Nationals

Every year we go to several car shows ranging from local to national events. We go both as spectators and as participants. It is always much more fun when we are showing.

Hot August Nights 2011

Hot August Nights in Reno is one of those big events that has so many vehicles you can never get a good look at all of them but that doesn’t mean you don’t see some great stuff. Such large shows can almost be overwhelming. Our friends Steve and Nancy Whitaker from Ankeny, Iowa made their […]
