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.

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

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.
