Detailing is my friend

I love getting the Camaro detailed. Seriously....love it! Sure I can wash my car, or my husband can wash her, and that is important. Gotta keep the girl clean, after all. But get her detailed, and WOW...it just adds that extra sparkle to her finish! Cammy (my car, for those who do not know her name) got quite the special treatment last Monday. Since she was going to be in AutoRama, she had to be super cleaned. So I called Russell at Personal Touch Auto Detailing and he did one amazing job. Cammy was hand washed to remove all traces of dirt and grime from all areas, including  the door jams and wheel-wells. She had her interior thoroughly dusted and vacuumed. She was cleaned, polished, and waxed to perfection. And then, even after spending roughly ten hours on her detailing that day, she got a few more hours of attention from the detailer after she arrived at the convention center for the show. Basically, awesome detailing, and Cammy looked super clean. She shined like glass and got lots of compliments.

H-Town Camaro Club car show and meeting

My Camaro Club had a meeting at the Pine Forest Country Club in Houston, Texas on 11-20-11. The location was a nice one for a little Camaro car show, so we went early to show off our cars. Here are some pictures from the event. Enjoy!

AutoRama...here I come!

I have been to my fair share of indoor car shows. It started in my youth and continued into adulthood, first as just an enthusiast and then as a muscle car owner. I must admit, as much as I loved going before, ever since I've had my own beautiful Camaro, I somehow love it even more now.

 It is especially nice during the winter months to have other options besides movies or bowling to go to. And these days there are many options for finding a good indoor car venue. One of my favorites to attend is AutoRama. The very first AutoRama was put on by the MHRA (Michigan Hot Rod Association) at the University of Detroit Field House in January of 1953, with 50 cars. AutoRama continued to expand throughout the late 60s and early 70s, and today is featured in several locations across the United States.

I went to AutoRama last year as just a spectator and enjoyed surveying the wide collection of cars, as well as the many events they had planned (examples include the Automotive Swap Meet & Toy Show,   1:64 Scale Competitive Downhill Racing, Special Guest Appearances, Great Rockabilly Music, and Performance World - showcasing modern muscle, Sport Compacts, Exotics & European Luxury).

Houston's AutoRama runs during Thanksgiving weekend each year and brings in quite a crowd.  This year my Camaro will be one of the cars in the show, so I am even more excited than before. I will be showing with one of my clubs (West Houston Muscle) and will be featured beside a gorgeous '69 Camaro, so we can represent the old and the new.  The other car club I am a member of (H-Town Camaro Club) will also have a nice display as well.  If you are in the Houston, Texas area, you should definitely make the time to come out. And if you aren't in the Houston area, then just check the AutoRama website to find a show closer to you.

FIX for the TROOPS





FIX for the TROOPS was held on Friday, November 4, and it was a great success for their first event.

Painted Doll Creations started FIX for the TROOPS as a non profit benefit to raise money and items year round to keep providing the troops some necessities and fun extras of home while they are away from their families.  All proceeds from the event were donated.
 
The event included a car show, pin-up contest, raffle, bake sale, bands, and so much more! It was nice to see everyone enjoying themselves while raising money for such a good cause.

Supporting a fellow female enthusiast

Hey all! I just wanted to throw this video out there for you. I got a request to share this on my blog, so I am giving props to another female muscle car enthusiast who is trying to raise money for a film project. Check out her video.
