I mentioned your website to him and he said he would check it out. I also mentioned the Festival Car Show this weekend and how we are expecting 800 vehicles or entrants, he was impressed with the total cars for a car show down here. Cool or what. Just wanted to share this with you, wow, the President of Meguair's Products on the phone with little old me. Thanks and keep up the good work. Dave Weber
 

 

LETTERS FROM THE MAILBAG!

Date: Thu, 18 Dec 2008  The Pep Boys Cruisin’ Series on Las Olas was a huge success Wednesday night.  Cars were lined up an hour early to get into the event.  In the first half hour we registered 100 vehicles.  By nights end there were classic cars stretched 4 city blocks on both sides of Las Olas.  Pep Boys entered the enthusiast community in South Florida in a big way that night.  Event participants were thrilled when they received PEP BOYS "Cruisin’ Series" tee shirts, don’t touch magnets, sample Mequiars products, stickers, vintage posters and had an opportunity to win prizes.  Many were asking when the next Pep Boys series event was scheduled so they don’t miss it. 
-Scott Stroughton     See Photos!

Next "Cruisin Series" events:  January 10 - Ocean’s 11 on Hollywood Beach, and return to Las Olas - January 14. 


Date: Thu, 18 Dec 2008  Last night, I invited a group of visitors to Ft. Lauderdale to join me at "Classics on Las Olas" classic car show on Las Olas Boulevard.  I was pleased to see that Russ Gagliano of Russ G Events Classic Cars, local classic car restorer and car show promoter, was there. Russ had acquired the sponsorship of Pep Boys who helped expand the show which is planned to be a monthly event.  The long lines of gorgeous, gleaming cars parked along both sides of Las Olas gave the street a festive and exciting mood and many “cruisers” were out to drool over these works of motor art and enjoy the “excuse” for a stroll on the Boulevard. A final count of 125 classics were in attendance.  Music by "Cruisin’ South Florida" and several radio stations who added their own activity booths added more entertainment and excitement.  Thank goodness, for with much of west Las Olas closed, awaiting re-construction, the street has been rather sad-looking and quiet these days.

I would like to commend Gagliano and Pep Boys for taking the time and effort to promote this wonderful hobby and business for many people in South Florida--and I am sure that the retailers and restaurants on Las Olas feel the same.  Adding tourist attraction value, foot traffic and local interest and flavor, the Classic Car Shows are a wonderful addition to our “things to do” list here.  And kudos to all the car owners who shared their beautiful machines with us.  They don’t receive much besides compliments and trophies, but they put many hours and dollars into their passion.  While taking in the balmy December night and sites, one of my visitors said, “No one in Michigan is doing this tonight!” and with the state of the auto business today, these cars are a part of history that is not likely to be repeated!  Thanks to Russ Gagliano and Pep Boys for keeping the old glimmer of Detroit alive in South Florida!

SOUTH FLORIDA'S LARGEST CAR SHOW!


'Festival Flea Market Mall' - Pompano - South Florida's Largest Car Show!
Forum Comments


December 7, 2008:
  What an absolutely AWESOME and INCREDIBLE event!!!  Where do I even start?

Well to start the day, our promoters, vendors, workers, and event staff arrived as early as 5am, in the dark and damp cold, to continue prepping for the arrival of what was to come. The day started out early looking questionable, with fog (and rain in some western areas). Many of the early arrivals showed up shortly afterwards, and by 8am when I arrived to setup sound, much of the lot was almost full already. From that point on, the cars continued to roll in, non stop, all day!

And boy did the cars roll in! ...breaking last years "Holiday" show record, with over 700+ of South Florida's finest show vehicles in attendance!  Every kind of show vehicle was on proud display for this day's mega-event!

By about 9am, the foggy and overcast skies completely cleared, leaving us what we consider the "picture perfect" South Florida holiday season weather! ...cool temperatures and sunny, with perfect blue skies! The weather was absolutely perfect!

Early on, participants were treated to free continental breakfast at the hospitality tent. The classic cars continued to roll in, as well as throngs of delighted spectators!

Added to this year's show, we were treated to some excellent "live entertainment". The live show started off with the Motown rhythm and blues performing talent of Ronny Walker, singing and playing keyboard and saxophone. He was a real treat!

Next up was the singing group 'Joey and the Gigolos' who put on an incredible performance of doo-wop and acappella. Their flawless show really pulled in the spectator crowd, where they had them dancing and hula-hooping in the parking lot!

Wrapping up the live show, as people were coming up for the awards presentation, was the National recording talent of Rachael Brown, who blew us away with her incredible voice and singing talent, doing some favorite rhythm and blues tunes.

As I said, it was and AWESOME and INCREDIBLE day and event! A HUGE "hats off" of thanks and recognition goes out to our promoters Dick Barton of 'DB Entertainment', and our show coordinator Russ Gagliano of 'Russ G Events'. These two guys have poured countless hours, days, and months of effort, preparation, and time, to make this show the successful mega-event that it was!

Thanks also goes out to all the sponsors, vendors, the volunteers and the "behind the scenes" workers who all had a part in the show. Thank you goes out to the "Festival Flea Market Mall" for hosting this huge event, and lastly, a BIG thanks to all of you car show folks who came out in support, as YOU are the show!

It truly was the "perfect" car show day! There were so many show people at this show, vendors, cars, and spectators, as well as great shopping and food in the mall, and great entertainment throughout the day! This show simply "pegged the car show meter" as one of the BEST shows in South Florida ...period!

From my personal place in the show, a lot of people stopped by with hello's, smiles, and compliments, and I thank you all very much for that. If I cut you short or didn't get to talk much with you ...I apologize. The "live" portion of the show kept me quite busy mixing, and unfortunately, I was un-able to get out and see most of the show, or get photos of everyone. I will post what I have, and post links to others as well.

Note:  If you would like to share your comments, there is a forum thread already started at: Festival Show.

Thanks again to ALL involved for a memorable event!  My photos coming soon...

HARLEY CRUISE TO THE KEYS!

"Car Guys Bike Run to the Keys"

We were invited to join the Miami HOG chapter run, with close to 50 bikes total on a cruise thru the Gables, "Old" Cutler Ridge, and back country roads thru Homestead to our final lunch destination in Key Largo.  Photos coming soon...

Doral 2nd Annual Car & Truck Show!
by: DJ Scott the Music Man

Nov 16, 2008:  It was an ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS day Sunday, for the "2nd Annual Car & Truck Show" in Doral.  We had a nice turnout of spectators and about 70 great show vehicles from Dade and Broward Counties. In addition to the awesome cars, we were treated to some excellent "live" entertainment throughout the day on a large show stage. 

Starting off the show was the very talented 4 piece jazz, rhythm & blues band "Cool Beans" who performed some great 70's cover tunes... featuring everything from the Doobie Brothers to Santana. After they entertained us through the afternoon, we brought out Jamie Danger as "Little Miss Dynamite". She blew us away with her incredible singing talent as she did some old classic favorites, and got down with the audience!  What a voice!  The grand finale wound up with a patriotic moment that was enjoyed by all.  In addition to all the great live music, we were also entertained in the afternoon by performances of the local Doral Jazzercise Dance Team, featuring little dancers, teen-agers, and the moms.  It was a fun day for all.  Even Anthony enjoyed the day with us!
There were plenty of great giveaways, food, vendors, spectators, and activates for the kids as well. Congratulations to the winner of the large screen TV, and all the award winners!  We were ALL winners with such a great show!

For me, it was a busy jam packed day mixing live music at the stage, which didn't leave me any time to get out and walk around, or take pictures.  But not to worry, that is where Clem Flanagan stepped up and volunteered his own talent to go out and get some nice photos with my camera. Thank you Clem!  2008 Photos

If you missed it this year, be sure to make plans to come to the 3rd annual show in 2009.  Hats off to Jumpin Jack, along with the City of Doral, for super car show and a jumpin' event!

Scott, I want to share a site with your forum.
http://www.doverdragstrip.com/home.htm

This site represents Dover Drag Strip located in Wingdale, New York. I know we've got a few folks from the northeast down here that must have frequented that track. Long since closed; it refuses to die! The Dover Old Farts Club community is constantly adding pictures and stories to the forums on the site.

Check it out, even if you were never there. Blessings, JJ

Comments:  What a great weekend!

Show #1 @ Pompano Mercedes Benz was a nice show as first time shows go.  Nice cars & trucks, free food and drinks, Scott doing his usual fantastic DJ majic, and Jumping Jack taking care of business.  I hope this show is an annual thing.  The price was right too -FREE!

Show #2 @ Miami Lakes was a Veterans dream come true.  Thank you to all of our service men and women, past and present.  Without them we would not have car shows period.
The cars, the crowd. Scott was the best he's ever been, man is he a great DJ.  Jumping Jack was jumping at this show.  140 or so cars were there and the crowd was awesome. People traffic was nonstop, and a few new friends were made.  Free to boot.  How does Jack do it?

Say a prayer for our service men and women this Veteran's Day.

Cruise Night:  October 15, 2008

Comments: "Webhead" (Dave Weber):  Took a ride down to the Las Olas cruise Wednesday evening for a look see. Man was I surprised by the turnout of great cars. There were people directing traffic and assisting us in parking, smiling and chatting with us. A very pleasant experience indeed. Scott was doing his usual fantastic job (if you can it that, more of a love) playing a tremendous collection of songs that kept all of us happy. All in all it was a nice night out. The weather cooperated and the breeze was splendid. This is something that would be a welcome event to all. Thanks for reading this   Webhead

4TH ANNUAL P.B.S.O. CAR & TRUCK SHOW!


Sun, Oct 12, 2008 - North Palm Beach:  What a GREAT show!  Despite the hot and sunny weather, over 300 show vehicles attended this first class event!  The show was sponsored by the "Palm Beach Sheriff's Office", and they did an superb job! Our host was the incredible "Cars of Dreams" museum!  Words can't describe this amazing collection of some of the world's finest and rare cars, displayed in a most wonderful setting!  It was truly breathtaking!  South Florida's finest street classic's rolled in steady all day, to this annual event.  I saw a lot of familiar faces from Broward County that came up to show support as well.  The show included top in class trophies, as well as an incredible 1st prize brand new 2008 car raffle giveaway, and 2nd prize a 42" large screen TV.  Tens of thousands of dollars were raised or donated for the PBSO charities.  It was my pleasure to be part of this years wonderful event!  A great job by all!  Watch for the photos to be available soon!

When you get a chance, check out www.christianrodders.org specifically the Hot Rod Camp tab. We are organizing a camp for Florida next year! I will send you a video so you can see last year's camp and conference building a pickup and this year two 32 roadsters (one old school and one modern) which debuted at Columbus - Goodguys. See you Sunday!

Jason, it was a real pleasure to meet you, and REALLY GREAT talking with you at the show!  I particularly look forward to seeing more from your great group, the 'Christian Rodders & Racers Assoc'.  It's great to be able to mix your faith with such a good hobby.  I encourage anyone interested to click the website, learn more, and maybe even become involved!  God Bless!

Tattoo Car Show Comments:

Tattoo Expo Car Show:  What a difference ONE day makes!  Sunday's car show weather was beautiful, clear, hot, and sunny all day!  Monday we watched as hurricane "Fay" rolled into South Florida, bringing in non-stop rain for 2 days now.  Summer car shows are always a gamble with weather, but we have been fortunate.  While the "Tattoo Expo Car Show" is typically the "hottest" (and most unusual) show of the year, there was plenty of shade lining a 1/4 mile or more of roadway, making for a nice comfortable setting.  In fact, I would say it is one of the better venues, as shade trees and grCLICK ME!assy areas lining the entire show make for a great setup for lawn chairs and umbrellas.  The tropical breezes and shade kept everyone cool and comfy.  I also have to say that the spectators at this show really enjoy they cars, and are always very respectful.  They are an unusual group, and very nice people too.  The "Cruiser's of South Florida" always do a great job with this show, and awards are always handed out on time.  It was "my pleasure" to play some great requests too!  Congratulations on a job well done by all!  We look forward to next years show!  Also, watch for the Cruiser's "Toy Run" car show in December, which is always a lot of fun too!  -"DJ Scott"   (Photo courtesy of: E.J.Mac, Delray Beach)  CLICK PHOTO!

Scott you did one heck of a job keeping the music going and keeping everyone cool on such a hot day. lol. Steve Schwartz you put on another great show and I commend you both. I just want to say to everyone and including the participants who brought out all their beautiful cars your such a great bunch of people and have a great family going. You guys and gals are such a class act. Alot of you we haven't met but associate your face with your car. We try to go to as many as we can. And after being out of the loop for awhile we can see what were missing. It stands out. Great Fun, Great people. You guys and gals stand alone to none. Having fun with great people and helping charities it doesn't get any better than that. Alicia Robert Chris

 

 

GREAT NEWS!  NEW CAR SHOW FORUM!

Sept 15:  EXCITING NEWS!  CruisinSouthFlorida.com now has an ALL NEW South Florida car show Forum!

This new forum has been in the works for some time now, but I have finally decided to announce it's arrival.  It is a very simple forum to use, and is being offered to our local South Florida car community as a place to chat with your car friends about local shows, issues, and your cars!

In addition to local chat, there is a "garage" where people can swap "technical" ideas and help, and a basement where you can chat about non-car related stuff.  Even more great news... there will also be a place where you can list car parts and "cars for sale" too!  This will be available for "private" use only, and will be available FREE!

As stated. this forum is being offered for "private use" only!  No business ad's, spam, or listing's whatsoever!

This website and forum are "privately owned", and operation of it is at my discretion.  You will need to register with a valid email address.  The forum will be "moderated" by myself and others, and the general rules need to be understood and followed.  Courtesy and respect to each other will be of the utmost importance!

Forum Rules & Guidelines (Please Read!)

It has become too much work to keep up with comment book posts, so this should serve as an outlet for car people to share their thoughts, opinions, and chat with their friends in "real time" on this website.  Since I am offering a place to sell cars too, I will no longer be posting new ads on the "cars for sale section" of this website. 

Adjustments and changes to the forum will be made along the way, as needed too.  The forum is not very complex, and the software has some technical issues, so there may be an upgrade or change needed later. You can read about the issues and see some important info here...Forum IssuesDJ Pic

My BIGGEST hope is that we will all be polite and respectful to each other, and this will be fun, and a "cool place" to hang with our car buds!  You can email me if you have any ideas or issues...or just share them on the forum.

It is also my hope that this new forum will serve as another enhancement to this website, and to our great hobby...CARS!

Check out the new forum here...Forum

Take care...and have a GREAT weekend!  See you at the show Sunday!

Over 150 cars at today's event.  It was hot and sunny, and it was a great show!

Show comments from Dave Weber:  Attended the "World Ford Cars of The World Show" Sunday. 150+ cars ventured out in the sun and heat to participate in the 1st ever show at World Ford. There must have been 60 Mustangs and 60 Corvettes there. If only we had a dragstrip close by !!!!!! Scott wowed us again with his magical tunes, reminding us all of our younger days. I have to say a special note of thanks to the people at Breathless Performance. They invited me to join their group without hesitation, not like the other [     ] clubs that only told me not to park with their clubs cars. Thank you to Scott and Mickey from BP, you so inspired me that I joined your club. Even my friend with a Mustang was impressed on how your club treated both of us. Thank you again.

The comradery was great, the music was invigorating, and being there on-site, was a must see event that couldn’t be matched. Scott the Music Man made sure we left completely entertained! Our host Russ G was most thoughtful to our needs. My advice to all is looking on the upcoming show lists, find out when they are going to be and attend them. Every weekend hundreds of car lovers pull their prized possessions out of the garage and head to parking lots from dusk till dawn rain or shine, 52-weeks a year, this loose-knit community comes together to celebrate cars. Show your passion and excitement that so many in Southern Florida have for vintage/exotic/performance cars.

Comments:  Thanks ! to all of you who attended our first Movie/Cruise Night. Over 75 cars parked in Huizenga Plaza, under star studded clear skies to see "Ghostbusters" (1984)... The city's choice of Movie....not mine. Cars in attendance ranged from street rods to Ferrari's to Cobra's to T-Birds to Muscle Cars to Packard's and a......Duesenberg !!

Several Car Clubs were well represented including the FT. Lauderdale Region AACA, Starlight Cruisers, Mercury Club of South Florida, plus a dormant Club that is now back on the scene, the Pharaohs. A new Corvette Club, the Breathless Performance Corvette Club, under the direction of it's President Scott Argow, were very well represented.

The "Drive In" Movie is 75 years old this month. The first drive in was located in Camden, NJ  I am honored to have been a part of this memorable History in America. A special Thank You! to our own "Scott the MusicMan" for playing the Music we all love, and for the use of his large sound system for the Movie. Movie/Cruise Night was sponsored by Auto Nation, the Downtown Development Authority, and FLIFF (FT. Lauderdale International Film Festival)

Also, special thanks to "Papa Ougots" our food vendor, not only did he have delicious Strombolis, Chicken Wings, Burgers and Hot Dogs, but at the end of the evening graciously donated all the left over food to the needy and homeless.........

Hello South Florida! by: DJ Scott

Mon, July 7, 2008:    GREETINGS FROM SANIBEL ISLAND!  Well... here I am again writing you from another mini-getaway vacation.  I am currently on beautiful "Sanibel Island" at the west coast of Florida spending some "alone time" with Mrs. DJ Dee while the kids are away for the summer.  It is day #3 for us, and it has been very nice.  We have enjoyed the island life, dining, and incredible beaches from Ft. Meyers Beach, and Sanibel to Captiva.  This was our first time here.

LOCAL SOUTH FLORIDA NEWS:
Before we left, we enjoyed a GREAT 4th of July weekend!  Thursday night, July 3, we had a record turnout in Miami Springs for the annual Independence Day cruise.  The free event featured fabulous live performances by Johnny DeRose doing his "Tribute to Elvis".  The streets were packed to capacity with South Florida's finest show vehicles... and awards were given out to vehicles "best decorated" for the 4th of July. The 22" HDTV raffle was won by Joe & Michelle (Blue Cobra).  Show organized by: "Jumpin Jack Productions".

Friday, July 4th, we enjoyed our 1st annual show at "Lauderdale By The Sea"!  It was a beautiful day full of parades, patriotic spirit, and all the festivities.  There were street vendors, BBQ, kiddie rides, and a BIG tent that featured live entertainment by the band "Tucan Blue".  The city came out in full style to show off for one of our favorite holidays.  The weather was great, and the parking lot and street were packed full to capacity with show cars.  It was an excellent first show!  The 50" Plasma HDTV raffle was won by Jim Bauer in the Silver 2-seater Speedster.  He was more than happy to have to make special arrangements to get his incredible winning prize home.  The show was brought to you by: "Russ G Events".

DJ PicThis Sunday Night we will have our 1st new cruse at the Tijuana Taxi in Coral Springs, brought to you by Rockin Rich.  Please come out and support our newest cruise night.

I head back to Ft. Lauderdale later sometime today.  As you can see... I haven't had too much extra spare time, but I hope to be able to finally get caught up on photos in the next week or so.  As I get close to posting them...I will let you know.

Take care all...see you at the next show!   -DJ Scott

Guestbook Comments:

The 4th of July Show at Lauderdale-by-the Sea that Russ G ran was FUN for all. Family kids and car nuts. Not only was there Great Music (Me and Molly McGee) but Russ managed to feed and clothe us (free t-shirts), sand sculptures and a beautiful beach setting. Just wanted to say thanks to Russ, and you Scott for a super fun day. Also wanted to thank Steve Sutherland for driving home in his '40 Chevy, picking up his SUV coming back to help me bring home the 50" Plasma TV I won at the Raffle. Russ keep the good shows coming.

Hello South Florida! by: DJ Scott

June 24:  Hello South Florida!  I just got back from another out of town weekend getaway...a family weekend get together in Gainesville.  We did some boating, skiing, and swimming on the Suwannee River...and just enjoyed a few days of relaxation with family and friends.

I have received several emails & comments regarding photos for the "Festival Spring Show"...  and I'd like to answer you ALL at the same time...

YES... I will be posting the Festival Show photos as soon as I can get them done.  It is taking some time to go through over 700+ photos...selecting, editing, and posting...but they are being worked on and I will post them next.  The little "spare time" I have lately has been spent on getting caught up on chores around the house when I'm not away...or spending my little free time with the family.  I usually find time to do photos at my day job, but lately they are making me work too!

We have a couple GREAT shows coming up for our "4th of July" holiday weekend...

Thursday, July 3, it will be our annual "Miami Springs" event, a FREE cruise night which will feature live entertainment by Johnny DeRose doing his "Tribute To Elvis".  It's an open show and a family event, and there will be awards for best decorated vehicles as well as a Flat Panel TV raffle giveaway.  The show surrounds the Gazebo in the park on the Circle, and is brought to you by Jumpin Jack.

Friday, July 4th, we will have our 1st "Lauderdale By The Sea" Beach Blast Celebration car show on A1A at the beach.  This will be a street festival featuring a parade, vendors, food, awards, raffle giveaways, live entertainment, and of course, South Florida's GREATEST classic cars and show vehicles.  This "open" show is brought to you by "Russ G Events".

Sunday, July 13, will be the opening night of a brand new cruise spot, the "Tijuana Taxi Co" in Coral Springs. This FREE cruise night will run from 5pm-8pm every Sunday night featuriDJ Picng discounts and gift card awards, and is "open" to all.  They have an excellent menu and food.  This event replaces Zo's.  Great oldies music by my buddy DJ Rockin Rich!

There are some new shows, and old ones too coming in August...check them out here...Events.  It's going to be a "hot one" this summer for sure!!

Well, that's it for now...take care...see you soon!

GREETINGS FROM TENNESSEE! by: DJ Scott


Mon, Jun 2: 
Greetings from Tennessee!  I am away for a few days visiting with family and friends.  We are riding Harley's south-west of Nashville, cruisin around the beautiful countryside on long winding country roads through the hills. 
It's AWESOME!!! 

The website won't be updated for a few days since we are on limited dialup service here in the rural area.  Be back soon!!   -DJ Scott

Update - Fri Jun 6:  I'm back.  What an incredible time I had!!! 

While away, I stayed at a beautiful 3-story estate home (pictured upper right.. click to enlarge) on a ranch outside a very small historic town called Leipers Fork, Tennessee.  'Leipers Fork' has no traffic lights and one store called 'Puckett's Grocery', where locals come in to hang out, relax, or have lunch... (click link).  I am told that Williamson County is one of the top ten richest counties in America, and is the #1 richest county in Tennessee.  It was easy to see why, and certainly may be the most beautiful I have ever seen.  The area is home to many famous people and county music stars.  We were neighbors down the road with the 'Judds'.  Southern plantations stretch non-stop from one county to the next.

Sunday we attended a great little local church where some of these famous county singers attend and sometimes sing.  The afternoon was spend in fellowship with friends at lunch that lasted most of the day.  Early Sunday evening we had some powerful storms roll thru, but it was still a delight to just sit on the front porch and watch the rain go by.  Soon after, it cleared into a beautiful evening, where we went riding into the country side... and where we caught the most amazing sunset into the mountains.  We had to stop and hold our breaths for a moment!


All total, it was a bit of heaven on earth.  Now I know why everyone is SO happy and friendly there, and everyone waves to each other on the county roads.  These people love life, and know they have it good!
 


I rode 3 different bikes, a 2003 Harley Fat Boy, a 2008 Harley Street-Glide, and a 2008 Harley Road Glide for 4 days straight!  (click my photo right to enlarge)  The roads wind and go forever, hundreds of miles up and down the hills and around the amazing countryside.  Sometimes you'd just ride for some time, and finally come to a stop sign in the middle of nowhere... left or right turn didn't matter... as the country extends in all directions. There are no straight roads, and very few traffic lights.  We rode part of the 'Natchez Trace Parkway' which winds through several states.  We rode locally past Alan Jackson's estate which stretched about as far as the eye could see, along with seeing many other famous people's homes.  These stars shop and live amongst the locals, and everyone gets along like one big happy family. 

While there, we also rode into downtown Nashville, which was about 40 mile or so east, to visit some of the famous places where the small and big name county singers hang out, sing, and play.  While there we ran into one of my brother John's hot little friends Shea Fisher who was here to be a part of one of Nashville's biggest events, the "CMA Festival".  She has several # 1 hits now in Australia, and was here doing some promotions, and also doing some recording sessions. The 2 big touring buses parked out front of the 'Stage Saloon' were hers.   The nightlife in Nashville is non-stop fun and full of great people!

Tuesday afternoon we all rode the countryside together with more friends on bikes (click here to see brief video clip of our ride).  During our break, we met even more folks in Franklin for lunch at an incredible bed & breakfast type restaurant where the plates of home-cooked food and desserts just kept coming.  Afterwards, we were treated to a brief song at our table, by a couple of almost famous girls in our group.  They have a CD out, and hope to make it big.  It seems everyone in Nashville sings.  Click this link below (or photo left) to share our moment... Christy & Sherry

My time was too short, but I got a chance to visit "real America".  The only thing enjoyable about my flight back was sharing it with my daughter, and replaying the memories.  After riding a Harley for 4 days solid, it took a little getting used to driving a 4-wheeler again on our straight and boring South Florida roads, stuck in traffic with rude and angry people, going from one traffic light to the next.

I am going to try to finally post the photos from the Festival show sometime next week.

It's not so good to be back...  -Scott     Ride Video

FRANK & PATTIES BENEFIT SHOW

May 14:  Dear Car Friends, 10 days ago, many of you attended my Cancer Benefit Car Show at the new Frank & Patties Restaurant in Sunrise. It was a hot day ! not only from the heat of the Sun, but from the overwhelming financial support of you, the car owners. Over $5,000.00 was raised to help battle this illness, that has affected many of our close friends and families. The owner of the restaurant Bruce Horner (that many of you met at the show) contacted me to produce the show for him. He told me that his Wife Debra was suffering from cancer, and that he wanted all proceeds that day to be donated to the Cancer Society. I naturally agreed, as my Wife is also battling this killer illness. My dear friends, Mrs. Debra Horner has lost her battle, and has recently passed on. One of her last wishes was to see her Restaurant open and surrounded by Classic Cars. Thank you all from my heart, for making her wishes come true. Our prayers are with you Bruce. Frank & Patties is located at 3800 University Drive, Sunrise, FL, just North of Oakland Park Blvd. Russ G

Weekend Updates and News

Apr 28:  Hello South Florida!  It was quite a busy and eventful weekend with car shows!

Friday Night, starting off the weekend as always, it was a great evening at "Towershoppes Cruise".  Great weather and crowds were the official order of the night.

Saturday, the great weather continued, and we enjoyed a very nice annual show with over 100 cars at the "Cooper City Founder's Day Show", hosted by the 'AACA Ft. Lauderdale Region'.

Sunday, we took a nice drive to South Miami for the "1st Annual Tropical Park Show".  Once again, great weather and over 100+ cars made this a nice show, especially for a first event!  There was a nice showing of cars by our Broward County car guys too.  Thanks to all who came down.

This weekend, Sunday May 4th, we have a new car show at a new location, the "Frank & Patties "Open" Benefit Car Show".  It's a benefit show for the "American Cancer Society".  As you know, cancer has taken the lives of some of our close friends and family, so this is a worthy cause.  Show brought to you by: "Russ G Events".

I will be working on photos from the Margate show, Cooper City, and Tropical Park shows this week.  This is keeping me very busy... 

UPDATE APR 30:  Photos are available for Margate & Cooper City!

Exciting website news is coming, as this website continues to grow!  Stay tuned for this great news which will become available to everyone sometime very soon.  Some of you already know...

Note:  This website may temporarily go down this week or next week for a hosting service upgrades...

My wife even asks me "Babe when's the next show" making me feel very fortunate that she likes to participate. Even though we can't always win "Best of Show" The sense of comradery and brotherhood can be felt all day cheering on all those who do win those wonderful awards. I also want to acknowledge the hosts, judges & vendors that put forth so much effort to make every show such a success. I wish more events like these were held in Hialeah so that more people could enjoy and hopefully motivate them to participate in future events as was my case....

Comments:  Entered the Cooper City Show this past Saturday. Nice to see Scott the Music Man spinning the tunes, of course he did a superb job. Plenty of cars in attendance, some outstanding beauties that I'd never seen before. All in all it was a fun day to sit in the sun and have a hot dog and a soda. Looking forward to 2009.

Went to the Dania Beach Cruise Night right after the Cooper City Show.  We decided to have a bite to eat at the hot dog stand instead of the restaurant on the pier,(which is overpriced and the service is poor).
To our surprise, the hot dog stand closes at 5:15PM during the winter season.
Excuse me, but a car show night and you close early. We ended up leaving (we were the only 2 cars there at 6:15PM) and went for a bite to eat off of US-1 & Stirling Rd.  We had intended to return, but after eating we decided to just go home.  Maybe the July show will have a better result with the hot dog stand staying open past 5:15PM.
Sorry for complaining, but it was a bust. Thee past shows there had been enjoyable, so eat before you go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comments:  A personal Thank You ! to all that participated in in my two car shows this past weekend.

Saturday's night cruise at Ocean's 11 saw perfect beach weather and attracted over 50 great cars, some having never been shown in our area before. Special thanks to our car friends from Miami & Hialeah who attended to help raise awareness and financial support for ALS.

Sunday's benefit car show in Margate for the Elks Lodge, to raise money for children's charities, had a total of 107 great cars, coming from Hialeah to the South, and Lantana to the North. It was a perfect (hot) day.. and a great time was had by all. A very special Thank You ! to Scott and his music for 2 great shows !!!!!

On Sunday May 4th, I will be holding a benefit car show at Frank & Patties Restaurant in Sunrise, Florida for Cancer. I passionately invite all of you to attend and support this terrible illness that has affected our families and friends. Please check Scott's website for show information.  Thank you again !!!

Comments:  I apologize! I really didn’t mean it! As many may know I do like to experience the 402 horses under the hood of my 1934 Ford Phaeton (that is why I buy the cheep tires). At the same time I do know that, while leaving a show, it is “definitely” NOT the time to burn rubber. I do know that it shows irreverence to the promoters, sponsors and property owners involved. Not to say, that usually there is police at most of the shows in attendance or for control purposes. That said: I must admit, that while leaving the Elks show at the Chevy Chase center in Margate last Sunday, I left half my tire melted and laying on the exit to the parking lot. Again I genuinely apologize; I meant no harm or disrespect towards anyone. I love attending these shows and wouldn’t intentionally do anything to jeopardize that in any manner.

My defense; When building my car they kinda had a “oh crap” moment. They install the brake pedal then installed the accelerator against the tranny tunnel and had plenty of room for both until they went to install the steering column. That is when they said “OH CRAP, THE BRAKE PEDAL IS WHERE THE COLUMN SHOULD GO THROUGH THE FLOOR”! So in their infinite wisdom they surmised that they would cut off the pedal and weld it offset of the actuator shaft going to the brake cylinder. This solution seemed plausible until it was done and was flabbergasted to find that you literally had to wedge your foot between the brake pedal shaft and tunnel. I have dealt with this for years and had adjusted to it.

At least I thought I had adjusted to it, because as I left the show Sunday I unthinkingly had my foot to high on the accelerator and I unknowingly wedged my fat foot between and when I pulled back my foot literally came out of my Boat Docker’s slip on shoe, and with the added factor of turning, allowing the tires to break friction and I left a strip on the road as well as leaving a strip in my shorts. Luckily, I managed to kick the shoe off the pedal before customizing the rear of a red 66ish Mustang that was ahead of me.

Again I profoundly apologize to Russ, Scott, The Elks, the people of Chevy Chase center, along with everyone else involved at the car show.

Jay, your "defense" gave me a good chuckle...but I believe you!  I've actually been in your shoes (no pun intended)...so I can relate!  An unknown broken motor mount once left me spinning circles in the middle of an intersection.  Knowing you are an honest car guy, and in no way would jeopardize any show (intentionally)...you are (at least as far as I am concerned) forgiven!  It was a pretty decent burnout!  Thanks for "owning up" to what happened...I'm glad you didn't have to explain that one to the cops!  LOL!

Comments:  Reading Jay's e-mail got me to remember when I was going to back my daughters T-bird out of the driveway. I had back surgery and my right foot wasn't working too well, so I got in the car, put it in reverse and proceeded to spin the tires the entire 70 foot length of my driveway, out into the street and almost hit my neighbors truck in his driveway. I never realized that my foot was on the gas until the ride was done. It was sure scarey at the time, but we all had a good laugh, and still do even to this day. The hard part was getting those 2 thick black tire marks off of the concrete driveway. Thanks for bringing back some funny moments.

Comments:  Hello Scott, I want to thank you for not only the great show last Sunday, but also for playing "409" for me. I really needed a Beach Boys "fix", and it hit the spot. I'm checking out your site for the first time, its real cool, and has lots of info on up comming shows and events, and the big surprize is that it is current. No more chasing those shows that are no longer running. Looks like I will be making some road trips, see you on one soon, Sal and Pirjo Perna

Thanks for the kind words...I'm glad you "found" us!  See you at the next show...

Comments:  Scott, great show good giveaways we loved the hot dogs and beverages that were supplied all day. My family had a great time and it was nice to see old friends and make some new ones. Next time how about more classes in order to keep from the same people winning. I don't know how you can put an 1984-2008 Corvette in only 2 classes, how about by generation. Again great job, see you on Friday's and at the ocean's 11 show.

The music selection is some of the best anywhere. FREE HOT DOGS & SODA all day long. Top that one!! Maroone Auto Plaza was a perfect host, no pressure or anything. Looking forward to the next show.

Comments:  Hi Scott We had a great time yesterday at the maroone chevy show, as always you did an "OUTSTANDING" job. I would like to hear maybe a little bit more 80's rock if I may suggest. The music format you used at "Cheetah's Show" was definetly down my avenue.... Thanks for everything you do in this great hobbie that we all share.... Albert

HELLO  South  Florida!

April 6:  It started as a stormy and rainy Sunday morning here in South Florida.

I don't have too much to say...  No changes have been made to the website this week, as I have been extremely busy with my "real" job.

Friday night was a good night at Towershoppes.  "DJ Dee" (photo right) filled in for me there (and did a very nice job), as I had another gig providing sound for a major national level corporate gig on South Beach in Miami.  I was able to get back in time to see what a good night it was at Towers.

If the weather is good...we will try to make it to Zo's Cruise tonight for a good night.  I will post updates if needed...

I have finally started working on the "Cheetah Show" photos...they should be up sometime this coming week.

If you enjoyed the "classic rock" format I played at the "Cheetah Show"...I want you to know...so did I!  In fact, this is the music I always play outdoors at HOOTERS for bike night on Wednesday nights.   This Wednesday night at 7pm...we will be hosting our 6th Annual outdoor bikini contest.  The stage is setup outside right on the corner of Pines Blvd and University Dr.  Although close parking is reserved for bikes only...outer parking is available for spectators...who are welcome to attend.  Bring lawn chairs if you like.

This Saturday I will be providing large format outdoor sound for the City of Oakland Park's Youth Day.  There are rides and activities for kids all day, with "live" entertainment at the end of the day.  All kids are invited...and admission is free.  It goes from noon till 9pm, with fireworks as the finale.  Event Setup

"Maroone Auto Annual Classic Car & Truck Show"  is this Sunday, April 13, in Pembroke Pines. This is always a good show...brought to you by "Jumpin Jack Productions".

Have a great week!  -Scott

SCOTT: CONGRATULATIONS ON A WONDERFUL JOB. A CAR SHOW WITHOUT YOU, IS NOT A SHOW. KEEP THE GOOD WORK... P.S. HOW ABOUT MY BLUE GRASS MUSIC?? THANK YOU: JOHN.

 

Posting photos to this website

If you were ever curious . . . this is a general description of the steps taken to post typical car show photos to this website:

  • Stage 1:  Transfer photos from camera card to computer, batch process first level photo pre-processing. This processing stage is performed automatically on the entire show's file by computerized preset templates that  have already been pre-tweaked and pre-designed.  A powerful computer processor is required for this first step.   (approx time: 1hr)

  • Stage 2:  Post initial processing, photo selection, cropping, editing, fixing, and straightening photos.  This is where I scroll through and view every photo and choose the keepers . . . and reject the losers.  If a photo is good, but needs further cropping, enhancing, or straightening, it is opened and fixed in photo editing software.  This manual stage is the most time consuming, and usually takes at least a few hours minimum or more to go through and select or edit an entire file of several hundred photos.  (aprox time: 2-4 hours)

  • Stage 3:  Second level processing, watermarking, sharpening, 3 levels of resizing, finalize.  This is where it starts to happen.  The chosen photos are automatically level 2 enhanced and processed, resized, watermarked, and finalized.  Once again, computer software templates have already been tweaked and pre-designed for specific results.  (aprox time: 15-30 minutes)

  • Stage 4:  Create web pages and links from finalized photos.  Thumbnail menu pages are created here by templates that have been personally designed or modified.  This automation is performed by part software, and part manual operation.  (aprox time: 1hr)

  • Stage 5:  Upload final photos and created webpages to web site, create final links.  Uploading is automatic, but final links and menus still have to be manually created on website.  (aprox time: 1hr)

DJ PicWell, this is how I present and post photos, without going into too much technical detail.   Most of this stuff I had to figure out and learn on my own.  Overall, it takes about as much time, if not more... to select, process, create, and upload it all, as it did to take the photos during the show.  Usually, once I can complete Stage #2... the rest normally happens pretty quickly.  Unfortunately, I am not always able to post the photos as soon as I would like to, as I have to juggle my full-time day job, weekend jobs, rest and relaxation time, and personal life,  with my hobby.  Sometimes, after a very busy weekend, I just need a little time off.   I enjoy sharing, and the nice compliments are always appreciated when offered.   -Scott
 

Note:  If you haven't already heard, the "Cheetah Show" was a BLAST!  I received a lot of positive response during the show regarding the change of music format...and hope that everyone else who attended enjoyed the later classic rock music format as well.  The format seemed to "feel" right for the show.  The "Cheetah Show" photos will probably be available by sometime later this week, or weekend . . . at the earliest.

Dear "Mr Racer":  I am sorry to say...I was unable to get any "quality" shots of "the girl in the checker bikini", or any quality shots from most of the show, from my location behind the stage.  This was my best shot of your "checker bikini" girl (on left).

CAR SHOW ETIQUETTE, RULES & RESPECT!
Common car show rules and guidelines for everyone!

Posted 2/3/2008:  It bothers me to have to write this, but I think most would agree it needs to be said. It appears lately, that a lack of respect and not knowing the rules and expectations at a car show have become more and more of an issue recently.  It seems often that the actions of one, or a few, can really put a damper on everyone else's car show experience and fun.  Typically, these issues are not usually done intentionally, but are more often the result of a lack of knowledge and understanding.

I will attempt to list the basic understood rules and expectations of the typical classic car shows:


1.  NO STEREOS!  They may be encouraged at the "import shows" and "late-model shows", but they are not allowed at most "classic car" shows. This is usually one of the biggest pet peeves of myself and many of the car show guys.  The host of the show has usually paid good money to hire a DJ who will play theme music for the entire show, and doesn't need some fool doing his own thing, disturbing and annoying everyone around him.  The type of music played is determined by the hosts, since it is their event.  Classic car shows, including most of the open shows, will typically feature 50's-60's-70's oldies and "classic rock"...and sometimes a little country, pop, and blues as well. This is the most popular and widely accepted format for general audiences.  "Competing" music (of any type) is not only inconsiderate, it is also not allowed.  If you don't like the music that is being played, then don't come to the show, and find the type of show that suits you.

One more recommendation on the flip side: if you don't like event music loud, don't park in front of the DJ speakers and then complain about it.  This should be a "no brainer".  The sound has to cover the entire event, and will be loud if you park up close.  You can move if it's a problem.

2) NO ALARMS!  This is just plain RUDE and inconsiderate, and totally unnecessary!  Your car is on display at an organized car show!  If you have valuables and need to lock your car, then that should be adequate.  Music from the DJ and noise from the show will set off shock sensors, causing the alarm to sound repeatedly...annoying everyone around!  I'm sure (let's just say hypothetically) "John", did not intentionally mean to disrupt the show and completely annoy everyone around him... but when he set his alarm at the show, we all got to "enjoy" his alarm and car horns going off continuously for hours.  NO ALARMS AT CAR SHOWS...PERIOD!!!

3) NO AIR HORNS!  This is beyond RUDE, and is dangerous, and can be damaging to someone's hearing.  Air horns are only fun for the person blowing them, and may have their place, but not at a car show!

4) DO NOT TOUCH!  I'm not even sure where to start on this one!  Do not touch, lean on, or EVER get in someone's car at a show!  EVER!  Unlike a dealership where you are encouraged to touch and sit in cars, these cars are "personally owned" and are on display for show only!  This applies to ALL cars in the show, regardless of condition...you never lean on or touch someone else's car...PERIOD!!

5) NO THROWING OBJECTS AROUND CARS!  This one always amazes me!  This includes footballs, softballs, Frisbee's, toys, sticks, stones, or anything else you can think of.  These objects can fly or bounce out of control and damage a very expensive car body or paint job.  Do I really need to explain this one??  Parents... teach your kids not to touch or play around the cars.  Please watch your kids around these show cars as the children have a natural tendency to "play"...and don't know better... but you do!

6. NO BICYCLES, SCOOTERS, OR SKATEBOARDS!  This one really only applies in the car show area, but I have personally witnessed too many "close calls".  NEVER ride a bike or other personal transportation between cars... PERIOD!  Your mistake can result in some very expensive damage. These classic cars are quite valuable and irreplaceable, so why should anyone have to worry about an idiot on a bike riding next to their car.  Some responsible adults do bring their bikes... but know where, and where not to ride them...kids don't.  Watch the strollers around the cars too!

7) DOGS!  Be aware that dogs may be allowed at some shows, and not others.  These are "car shows", and NOT "dog shows".  If you must bring your dog to the show, then you are responsible for it!  Be aware if your dog bites someone, you can be sued.  If you dog craps in the grass in the show area where people are walking... then PLEASE, CLEAN IT UP!  Do I really have to spell it out?? 

Just a side note of information regarding dogs at Towershoppes Friday Night cruise...dogs are NOT allowed any more.  This came as an unfortunate result of some irresponsible dog owners with regards to everything I just mentioned above.  This rule has been allowed to be bent slightly though... only for small dogs that are carried. 

8) KIDS:  (same rules as above)  You are responsible for your kids.  Please keep an eye on them at the shows, and keep them off the cars.

9) PARKING:  This one is pretty minor... please park your car in line with everyone else's.  You may think your car is better than everyone else's and may feel a need to pull it out farther, but be considerate and line up with the rest.  The Mustang and Corvette guys usually do the best job at lining them up.

10) LITTER:  It is inconsiderate to expect that someone else should pick up trash that you have left behind!  If we want to keep coming back, we have to leave the area clean like we found it. Please take your trash with you, or throw it away properly!  Don't be a slob!  Everyone help out and do your part.

11) SUPPORT:  Please support the dealerships, restaurants, vendors, clubs, and anyone else connected to the show.  This one is pretty simple...they support us...we support them.  If the show is at a restaurant, then order something!  Don't brag about getting into the show for nothing...it's makes you look cheap. Don't complain about the fees...if the show isn't worth the cover charge to you...then don't come.  Just a side note: vendors have to pay a fees to be at the shows, and count on your support, just like the show counts on their support to help fund the event.  If car shows and cruise nights have any value to you, then show your gratitude and help support it.

12) BURNING RUBBER:  No one loves "burning rubber" (and lot's of it) more than me!  I still have my last set of totally destroyed Mickey Thompson's with big chunks of rubber hanging off of them.  A supercharged big block line-locked in 3rd gear at about 150mph has little mercy!  But there is a right place, and a wrong place to do it.  There might even be a right time at a wrong place to do it, but there is definitely a wrong time and a wrong place to do it, and that would be at the finish of a classic car show.  Your inappropriate actions could jeopardize a repeat show, and could be mis-interpreted as disrespect to the host of the show. Don't burn rubber on your own street, and don't do it at a car show. We can all burn rubber... but the car show is not the place to do it. You won't be impressing anyone, other than making yourself look bad.

13) TROPHY PRESENTATION: It is rude and inconsiderate to leave during the trophy presentation.  If you receive a trophy early, then you should politely wait until everyone else has received theirs too.  It's common courtesy... enough said.


DJ PicThese are some of the things that come mind off the top of my head.  If you can think of anything that I may have missed... please send your suggestion in to comments and I'll add it to the list.  These are not my rules... but rather "unwritten and understood rules" at most shows, guidelines, and suggestions on how we can all get along together as a group at a show.  Basically, just be "respectful" of the rest of the folks around you at a show and the rest should all fall into place.  Can I get an amen??

Thank you all...and see you at the next show!!  -Scott

i concur. ive felt this way for years as most car folks do. i think this should be printed so the NON car people can pick up a copy at towers !!! these are the dog walking, kid rock & stick throwing, skate & bike riding bunch.the baby stroller thing between cars can be hair raising as well, momma got the purse, diaper bag. and a bunch of jewlery swinging around. regards paul


Scott, You are right on the money in your etiquette comments, but I'm sure you already know that. Keep up the good work. Thanks, Dan


WELL SAID!!!!THANK YOU! EVERYTHING YOU MENTIONED IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY! Thanks, Sal


on your car show etiquette & respect editorial, I like to add my biggest complaint ( saving spaces ) how rude, first come first served... (comments edited) ...Tents should be a no no near cars.

 FOUND!! '72 CUTLASS CONVERTIBLE IN HOLLYWOOD


UPDATE 2/25:  I FOUND MY CAR!! I was driving down Federal Highway about a mile from my house and saw it..."she" is back home in my garage and Lojack is on the way. Thank you so much for posting the info on your website. I really appreciate it!!

It was parked at a church parking lot and according to a guy who lives nearby it has been there for about two weeks (right after the robbery) the conv top had been cut but all else was okay. I am so lucky...I did not acknowledge until I saw it yesterday how upset I was about the theft...I could not stop crying when I found my car...guess after 22 years it is like a family member...I was freaked out when I saw it as I was driving and all I could do was yell "MY CAR"   MY CAR"!! They did not catch them but the police know of someone who breaks into homes and also takes the cars so they are looking for him...I am unsure how they started it as it was not hotwired they did not have the keys and the steering column/ign switch is untouched. The cops said maybe some type of universal key? I have learned a lot about cars the last two weeks that I did not know hee hee.
AGAIN, I cannot thank you enough. Going out that Fri nite and meeting you and all the nice people who listed to my tale of woe...it helped. If I can return the favor and support one of your events somehow, pls let me know. I will stop by some night with my car and say hi...course it is no where near the condition of the cars you usually show but perhaps someday when I can afford it...



POSTED 2/18
I have owned it 22 years. It was stolen Mon Feb 10th from my gargage in Hollywood. They hotwired it and drove off...It is green with a white top and black interior...special features...torn front seat, torn convertible top (driver's side rear) and the trunk is original with the words "Oldmobile" and the name of the original dealer "Royal" on the left side. Mileage is about $108M. Any help you can give would be much appreciated..thank you!!  I am offering a handsome REWARD!  Any info contact: maura.whelan@wachovia.com

 GOOD NEWS! and BAD NEWS...

It was a great show Saturday as the "America's Corvette Club" celebrated their 25th Anniversary Event in Boca, along with hundreds of their coolest friends from all over Florida.  A new record may have been broken as the 50/50 girls (a few of the hard workers pictured left) collected over $2100!  Incredible! The winner was quite delighted!  A great day was had by all, thanks to the efforts of all involved.  Watch for this show again next year Jan 17, 2009!

The bad news is an unfortunate technical glitch caused many of the photos taken that day to be lost due to "data corruption".  A lot of GREAT photos were lost forever.  Many of the photos that did survive will be posted very soon.

AT TOY RUN!

AMBER ALERT!  Sunday, while attending the 2007 Toy Run Event, "Soupy", better known as "Soupy" (barely visible in this photo) was abducted again, by a  gang of Santa's "naughty helpers"!  This is the last known photo sighting of Soupy.  The "smile" on his face was clearly forced with tooth picks and scotch tape, and it is suspected he is being "tortured".  Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts, please inform authorities so he can be returned to his "semi-normal" life.  More photos coming soon...

You should also find the photo's coverage to be the most thorough & up to date in South Florida.  Viewing "Photos" typically requires a DSL connection, as photos are displayed at higher than average web-quality.
