THE Auto Show!



I'm sitting here at the computer, composing a post about my trip to Detroit this morning to visit the North American International Auto Show, sipping a homebrewed ESB and diggin' on some awesome tunes, courtesy of Motor City Josh. Meanwhile, I'm composing an exam to make the 17 students in my college class just miserable! Life is Goooood!

Anyway, this was my umpteenth time at the real car show, the Motor City car show, having lived in Detroit or near there for most of my years. I had a great time! I took my son, Beerme3, who is just about to turn 20, next week and he seemed to have a good time as well.

Last week I got a cool digital camera so I could take some pics and send them to my other son, Beerme2, who lives in Atlanta. He likes cars alot! So I took a bunch of photos and sent him a few. The pics at the top are of Beerme3 in a Mitsubishi Eclipse and a cool, GM concept car, called the "Efijy". Retro with a twist or two!

If anyone reading this has never been to the Detroit Auto Show, you're missing out! It is lots of fun to check out what's new, what's being planned and what all the newest gadgets are. See ya next year!

I have a companion blog at Multiply, which is kind of like MySpace, but less popular (sorry, that's my style). Anyway, I can post music and photos and videos, there, so if you're inclined, check it out at Brewmiker's Tavern
I promise to post a few more pictures there when I get the chance!

I'm a van man, when circumstances and/or conditions rule out the Harley...but I can appreciate a nice car, from an aesthetic point of view.

BTW "alot" is not a word; it's "a lot"...

I like to chop and whittle on cars!

A (former) buddie of mine once drove a 1950 Ford coupe into my shop and said he'd been thinking about making a pickup out of it. He then announced that he just came by to borrow my restroom---when he came out---he had his pickup!!

I have just completed watching all 4 days (about 38 hours) of Barrett Jackson Car Auctions from Scottsdale, Az.

More money spent there than I could even imagine and enough cars I once owned bringing big bucks that made me cry like a baby.

Oh well, I will watch all of it next year too.

Ms Rightwing,

I see where the Shelby Cobra went for $5.5 Million! Unbelievable!
