    Video: What the classroom looks like the night before class starts!



    I shot this video Thursday night before the first day of our 3-day class. While there are chairs and tables, they are mostly just wasting space as the guys taking this class will not have time to use them.

    Yes, I have a question; can you set up some type of sham of a contest and let me win an all expense paid trip to one of your classes down your way?

    By chance, do you know yet where your classes will be next year as far as being close to Louisville, KY? I know you were at Indy I think last year and Auburn this year. I didn't know if you usually tried to hit around that area every year or not.

    Thanks, Greg

    That's a question for the marketing side of upper management.

    I have a few tentative dates and locations for the first part of next year. What I'd recommend is if anyone really wants to take the 2-day class and it's within travel distance to you - then go to it. The Roadshow Classes may or may not continue.

    For years people tell me to bring the class to their state. Then when we do it's like pulling teeth to get people to sign-up. Most say either the cost is too high or they say they are not pro detailers, thus the class is not for them. I'm sure some people take a free class and assume all classes are the same so they don't need to go to a class like the one I teach.

    Hey... the market will decide. It's easier for me to not do the roadshow classes and enjoy my weekends off.


    So if you're reading this and getting to Stuart, Florida is out of your budget here's some alternatives and they may be the last of the roadshow classes....

    I'm glad I take these types of videos. It shows people all the cool cars and tools they get to use at our classes.

    I NEVER EVER see videos like this for any other class. In fact I never see pictures of the cars and tools you get to use at any other class. My guess is pictures of chairs, or videos of chairs wouldn't be a very good selling point.

    Here's the link to the pictures and comments thread from this class. In my mind, the fact that absolute strangers, some who have NEVER machine polished before, started Friday morning working on 2 bad ass cars!

    There's simply NO other car detailing class where those attending get to do this. No where.


    Next 3-day class here at Autogeek in Stuart, Florida is the last weekend of September.

    Thanks Mike, I'll take it up with Upper Management.......

    The Powell, Ohio one would be within driving distance. But as my luck usually goes, I have to spend my private stash on getting rid of termites and their lovable damage. But, I'll keep an eye out for future Roadshows just in case.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Great set up ! I am sure the “students” will be all pumped up walking into that classroom.

    If the rest of the scheduled locations don't get sign-ups in the next day or two, they will get cancelled and then there might not be any more roadshow classes.

    Too many people talk.... no follow-up with the walk.


    Then we'll just have the three, 3-day classes here in Stuart, Florida and anyone that wants a real hands-on class, working on real cars with yours truly can drive or fly here, get their hotel rooms, rental cars etc.

    Thanks for the reply.
