  • Show and Shine locations?

    I have been turned down at 2 Ford dealers for Show and Shine. One dealer I won't mention the name pretty much said, Why would we wanna do that? A car that is no longer made?

    The other one said they don't have the room for it.

    So as of right now I am waiting on a local Mall to get back with me. Other wise another option is in the hotel parking lot as it is HUGE!!!!!! Or I will explore other options.

    Just wanted to pass that along...

    You talked to stoobie?

    I like the idea of having the show and shine at the parking lot myself, less driving... more drinking. Holy crap... if the show and shines at the hotel we can start at noon!

    Who's gonna help pay for a keg this year.... Stoobie promises not to bring that dark beer again

          thats right at the end of bagged's street basically. i've been there many times. im sure they wouldnt mind at all. theres so much parking and it will only be publicity for them. the only thing is, the museum is so cool, i would hate to go there and not go in. they've got things like the JFK limo he was shot in, the rosa parks bus, the chair lincoln was shot in, thomas edisons last breath in a bottle, etc. i highly recommend it to anyone thats never gone.

            Well that's my point. It gives people something else to do once they're done voting and stuff. It's also good for people's significant others that tend to get bored easily.
            A lot of our show and shines have had alternate activities. Lane Automotive gave us tours and also had a store to buy parts/accessories. The Harley Dealership had events going on and also the store for buying cool gear. etc etc
            I'm sure we could work a deal with HFM to get discounted tickets or group tours or something.

            NECO had their show and shine at the Ford Museum one year for Cougarfest.
            I enjoyed it quite a bit.

              The HFM would be cool, of a factory tour, we tried that in 04 but it was sold out already so we saw the Nascar Imax iirc ...

                          That's one of the local malls he's refering to.

                              Ya, but the whole even should be out that way anyhow. Like 04, banquet,S&S, and karting all in the same place in one day. Plus the road course is just down the road . As well as Dave and Busters.

                              Would be nice to have the S&S with the banquet though. Or with something else. The S&S is kinda of a snooze fest
