I mostly spent my time in Biloxi, Mississippi, but overall 7,043 registered cars visited cities along the Gulf Coast during the week long block party. Palm Trees, hot rods and entertainment in every direction – it was quite a sight to behold!
The team and I met a bunch of amazing people, and southern hospitality was in full effect! The folks putting on the show even raffled off a beautiful 1932 Ford High Boy Roadster and raised over $25,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation in the process – a true testament to the class of the event!
The swap meet held at the Biloxi Convention Center hosted over 7000 attendees during the 3 day event, and it was my pleasure to help folks and answering questions about fuel system maintenance and vehicle care. As with most of my tour stops, a common theme was ethanol and the issues it has caused for the vehicles and small engines it’s been used in.
Having plenty of STA-BIL 360, Protection and Marine Formulas (it may have been a car show, but we were on the coast after all!) on hand was a good move, as we distributed thousands of bottles to attendees who came by to see me and my big blue Engine Answerman truck.
303 Aerospace samples were also popular with consumers, with many folks trying to sneak multiple trips through the sample line. I didn’t mind, as I know car enthusiasts have other toys such as motorcycles, RVs, and boats that they’ve got to care for as well!
Made it! I'm here on the Gulf Coast at night one of Cruisin' the Coast 2014 and I'm already seeing so many cool rides!!
Overall, it was a wonderful few days down south… and luckily I don’t have to travel too far for my next tour stop! This week I’m switching from cars back to bikes as I visit Florida for AIMExpo 2014, the premier motorcycle trade and consumer event in North America.
Watch my Instagram later this week for photos from Orlando – last year i saw some really amazing motorcycles, riding demos, celebrities and more!
