    Pictures: 2nd Autogeek's Cars & Coffee - May 2014


    This last weekend was our second monthly Cars & Coffee with another stellar turn-out of people and cars.

    You never know whats going to happen at Autogeek's Cars & Coffee and this last Saturday was no exception as everyone that attended received a free Autogeek's Cars & Coffee T-shirt as well as a copy of my how-to book "The Art of Detailing".




    The next Cars & Coffee will be held on Saturday, June 14th so mark your calendars to be here and tell your friends.


    Here's a few pictures from the May 2014 Autogeek's Cars & Coffee....


    Here's James directing traffic to keep things flowing smoothing in the early morning!




    You can find a delicious array of pastries, plus cold drink and of course hot coffee in both regular and decaf.






    From left to right are,

    Justin aka Smokinss, then Den aka boomer1649 then there's Nick's gal and Nick who goes by X Gixxer 1000 X on our forum.





    Danielle and Trey...




    Yancy our disc jockey...





    Kelly, Darlene and Meghan...






    The GTO belongs to Earl the Plumber, the 1958 Chevy Belair belongs to Billy, the 1941 Buick on the other side of the Belair also belongs to Earl...




    Earl, Max and Gene....




    My co-worker Jeff took all these awesome pictures!






    Earl's 1941 Buick Convertible has a 454 Big Block Chevy engine and gets a lot of attention when he pops the hood...




    This is the engine inside Smokinss's GTO which has a flawless finish that he created and keeps up himself.




    Billy needed some emergency help with the gangster white walls on the driver's side rear tires and there's not better place to have a car appearance emergency than Autogeek.








    This 1954 Hudson Hornet Convertible belongs to Bill and we'll see this car back for some work here at Autogeek....






    Always time to talk about cars at Cars & Coffee....

    Cars & Coffee Tech Session

    This month's topic for our detailing tech session was how to machine wax your car. Most everyone knows how to wax a car by hand but I went over the benefits of machine waxing using the Porter Cable 7424XP and the Griot's Garage 3" Mini Polisher for tight intricate areas and thin panels.








    This 1939 Chevy 5-window Coupe arrived completely dull with severe oxidation. We used this car in my May Detailing Boot Camp Class to teach the class how to remove oxidation and restore a show car finish using a Flex 3401 Forced Rotation Dual Action Polisher.

    Now the car has a super smooth and glossy show car finish and that's the perfect finish for a demonstration car when showing how to machine apply a finishing wax like Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax.




    With 3.5" foam waxing pads on the Griot's 3" Mini Polisher you can place the pad into the jar of wax, blip the on/off switch a couple of times really quickly to get some wax on the face of the pad and you're ready to machine wax.




    Here's a volunteer from the audience trying out machine waxing for the first time. From his smile I'm guessing he likes it!




    I also went over tips and techniques for carefully removing a wax using microfiber towels while wearing microfiber gloves.




    And of course, machine waxing is not only faster but does a better job of laying down a thin, uniform layer of wax for show car results on any car....






    Next Cars & Coffee at Autogeek will be held on Saturday, June 14th and the topic for this Tech Session will be,


    Tips and techniques for using the Flex 3401 Forced Rotation Dual Action Polisher

    Love the 65' GTO, A LOT! Wish there was more pics of that! Wish I could make it down there but 24 hrs to get there is a "bit" much for a cars and coffee event. Now I've driven back to Detroit to visit friends and family...AND to hit a long time running cars and coffee there, does that count, LOL! Five hour drive and almost 300 miles, well worth it every time as you never know what's going to show up!

    Great pics Mike and Crew!!!

    Good to see everyone there. I had a great time. Can't wait to start reading your book.

    Here are a few pics that I took with my cell phone. There were a few Pontiacs there on Sunday. Nice to see.





    Here is Den's GTO. The paint on this thing is flawless. Black single stage! Awesome car.

    This 1965 GTO will be one of the training cars in one of my upcoming Detailing Boot Camp Classes. Probably not the upcoming September class but possibly the January 2015 class.

    The chance to learn how to machine polish paint on a 1965 Pontiac GTO. Now that's a rare opportunity.





    The 1941 Buick Convertible WILL be in the upcoming September class as it needs a good de-swirling.
