    Detail Fest Fun Facts 2014


    As we are winding down and cleaning up from one heck of a party last weekend, better known as DETAIL FEST I have a ton of facts and figures landing on my desk so I thought I would share some interesting Detail Fest facts with you.

    Let's call it Fun Facts! And if you have any to add I would love to hear them!


    • Weather in Stuart Fla was fabulous for Detail Fest
    • Saturdays Car Show brought in over 275 beautiful cars
    • Sundays Car Club Day brought in over 100 cars
    • Attendance this year jumped to 12,000 - 15,000 give or take one or two
    • We gave away double the amount of free gifts this year over last year
    • Raised $3700 for Autism Speaks and Max matched it to bring it to $7500
    • By 3 pm Saturday most all of the food vendors ran out of food
    • 45 min was the longest wait on our road to get from the parking lot to the traffic light less than a mile away
    • We sold double the amount of T-shirts than we did last year
    • We sold more black than the light colored shirt that was most requested last year
    • Yancy drank nine energy drinks for Detail Fest weekend
    • Saturday Max bought 44 breakfast sandwiches for the employees from the Petzel Food Truck (yes he really is that awesome)
    • We had a staff of 10 in the parking lot assisting with the parking
    • Two RV's parked for the weekend with us, one of them made the best homemade biscotti and I stole the last of Max's
    • Matt Steele "borrowed" the last of the stock of the Autogeek tervis tumblers and I have photos to prove it, but Matt if you are reading this I take cash payments in exchange for handing over photos
    • Ship Shape TV filmed a segment with John Greviskis in the middle of the parking for the Car Show
    • This was our first year signing the National Anthem and starting with a prayer
    • Dennis Gage and Wayne Carini both have amazing mustaches
    • 25 Rolls of Gorilla Tape
    • Zombie Ice truck was responsible for the water show on Sunday at the end of the event
    • There was over 10,000 square feet in tents for Detail Fest
    • One pallet of water was sold over the weekend
    • Poorboys blow up display is three times taller than me
    • There were two skeletons in the car show and first one to post a photo of them wins a prize
    • Had over 15 people here that flew in from out of the country for the event, and a big load of them fly in from outside of Fla
    • 24 Cans of Paint to mark the parking area
    • Matt Steele wore a tag all weekend that said "Hello I am with Bruno"
    • We had two EMS here and two sheriff, need EMS for one person and it was an employee, needed sheriff for lots of crowd control for autographs
    • We had two people that I can confirm that were here for each of the 9 Detail Fest, and I got a photo of one of them wearing the original Detail Fest shirt.
    • Mr. Skittles was kidnapped again from PJ but this time it wasn't me!
    • Best food truck I have had food from so far is PS561 and he has the best hot dogs, even has one call the Math Wiz!
    • Staff worked 2640 hours the week of Detail Fest to prepare for the event
    • Was over ten demo hoods in action
    • 2500 Feet of extension cord
    • 3 Diesel Generators
    • Saturday I walked 10 miles aka 22,890 steps and on Sunday I walked 9 miles aka 20,667 steps
    • Staff took 1500 photos
    • Fedex drove the Nascar trailer and car all the way down from North Carolina to join us
    • We went through several hundred chicken wings at the social and a big bottle of Fireball
    • Detail Fest bags ran out early Sunday- all 2500 of them

    All I can say is this, first time, I loved it. Seeing how packed up it was an awesome feeling because I knew it was Autogeek at its best. Food vendors really good and yes they ran out quickly, good for them bad for us. lol. Looking forward to next year. Another thing, staying in the hotel it was cool as well, got to talk to Mike and some detailers and finally got to eat some really good chicken wings coupled with some nice drinks. I will tell you one thing, the bartender was really on her game, almost getting me drunk. Good whiskey. lol

    I enjoyed all on the list except this one.

    "Zombie Ice truck was responsible for the water show on Sunday at the end of the event"

    Guess who`s car got soaked and the only one parked there.
    But thanks to Pinnacle water-less wash and an hours labor it`s good as can be.Great show my fellow GEEKS and to all that made it possible.You Guys and Gals are the best.

    Thank you for putting on such a great event. I really enjoyed getting to meet some of your vendors and got some good deals too. Not too mention how badass the car show was.
    Your hard work is appreciated.
