Detroit Autorama 2017

Been on the road for two weeks straight, First we did the Kansas City world of wheels show, but thats right in my back yard so i don't count it as an "away trip" but the following week was the Darryl Starbird show in Tulsa Oaklahoma then home for a few hours to do laundry and go on to the Detroit Autorama. I haven't been to Detroit for about 5 years, not since my friend JR passed away , he use to own the show and i must say that the new people are not car people and just care about the buck, its sad. I won't go into the behind the scenes BS and politics cause in the long run what does it really matter. I had the Baja Bndeeto & my panhead chopper in the show and they both won first place trophies in their class. trophies are nice but they don't pay the bills, Im not really and external validation guy. i was happier that everyone was digging the fake cactus I made for my display! the real purpose of the Detroit Autoramam trip was so I could visit with friends and paint slobbering monsters with friends in the artist ally in the basement, thats where the action is gang. now i have two weeks to get some work done and then its back on the road for that last show of the winter season for me. enjoy the pics then get out in the garage and build something -FRITZ
