    It's the best $10 you'll ever spend. 3 days of information overload ($10 covers all 3 days BTW), the chance to watch the top builders compete for the coveted Detailer's Cup, get your photo taken with any given celebrity...the list goes on! Plus, a big portion of the proceeds benefits the charities outlined in my initial post.

    You'll get to watch Mike talk to himself, you'll see me curse out a stapler, and if you're lucky, you might see Bob blowing his nose.

    All joking aside, you'll get a chance to chat with the vendors while they set up, hang out with the Autogeek crew, and get a sneak peek at new products.

    I am only there if the cursing out of a stapler is a guarantee! Bob blowing his nose I could pass on seeing.

    What about Meghan, does she do anything worthy of seeing other than running around like a chicken with its head cut off?
