    Re: Detail Fest 2019 - BIG NEWS!

    I've never been to a Detail Fest but back in the day I was part of an online forum called CEG Contour Enthusiast Group and we had a yearly show called Spring Zing. There were activities, autoX or road coarse racing and sometimes guest speakers. That said, the best part of these weekends were THE PEOPLE! No offense to those who bust their butts to put on a show like Detail Fest but the only thing I'd care about would be putting a face to a screen name and talking shop with them. I know if I ever go to one of these things that's my main objective, well maybe to buy some products and maybe even help clean someone's car evenDetail Fest 2019 - BIG NEWS!

Yes times change, but I fear the almighty dollar has taken the throne. I havenít got the slightest idea who works at Autogeek anymore, other than Mike and Meghan. Is Jason still there? Dwayne, Nick, Yancy, Bob, and others have moved on to other ventures. Who am I dealing with? Packer #xxxxxxxx. Whoopty doo. I suppose Detail Fest is dead. Unfortunate, because I loved the ones I got to go to. Meeting guys like Joe Fernandez, Renny Doyle, Todd Helme, Bob Eichelberg, David Ghodoussi, Richard from Solution Finish, PJ from Dodo Juice, and so many others was an absolute blast. Heck, winning a trip to Autogeek back in 2010 (Win a trip to Autogeek and Show Car Garage!) was an experience Iíll never forget. Anybody else feel the same way, or am I just a sentimental sap?
    I feel the same way.I went to them from 2008 to 2018 and enjoyed them all but the people i talked to,that went to the 2019 DF was disappointed.Well i sold my Corvette recently and purchased a motorcycle,so i guess it won't matter much to me anymore either way.

    I suppose Detail Fest is dead.

    I don't know if Detail Fest is 100% dead, it's just we lost use of the HUGE grass field out in front of the Autogeek building where we used to hold Detail Fest.


    For those that had never been to a Detail Fest show AT Autogeek, here's an arial view photos showing the huge grass field to the right of the Autogeek building.




    Here's two aerial views from a drone Yancy took pictures of a Saturday Cars & Coffee car show. You can see how far the grass field extended in width and depth. It as huge and empty and worked PERFECT for a car show.









    And here's a picture I just stepped outside and took. There's a BUILDING where the field used to be and this is why we had to move Detail Fest.





    Autogeek tried holding Detail Fest at the Palm Beach Convention Center and after that the Palm Beach Fairgrounds (timed with the Barrett-Jackson auction) and neither were a good fit or worked well for Autogeek, our vendors, our car owners nor the attendees.


    But there's always the future.

    Also just to note, when I saw this thread brought back from the dead my first suspicion was a Spammer had posted to it.

    So glad to see that wasn't the case.
