Hot August Nights 2012: Adam's Premium Car Care Back At It!


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone HOW THE HECK ARE YA?!?!?!?

 

I arrived home yesterday from an incredibly amazing time at both CamaroFest in Indianapolis, and HOT AUGUST NIGHTS in Reno!

 

I was blessed to be at the Grand Sierra Resort this year once again, as Adam's Premium Car Care was also at the Big Boys Toy Store, The Peppermill, and we had a dealer, Dave Stickland (Red Elk), at The Atlantis. I would like to thank Lynn Matthews, Justin Ege of Swan Creek Auto Care, Greg Mirich, Matt Butcher (Warehouse), Nick McQueen (nmcqueen469), Alan Williams (Our Kiwi), Gail Zent (Warehouse), Eric Bentley (Warehouse), Chris in the Warehouse for getting all that stuff ready and also saving us a few times during the week, Ben the creator of TurboStick, and of course I can't thank enough, Adam Pitale himself. This year was truly Amazing for me! I would like to also thank Weaver Customs, Sydney, Randy, and Len for letting us have The Godfather in the booth, and generally being awesome to the Adam's Crew all week! Pete and V.I.P. Detailing were back and doing better work than ever, doing full details on cars, in the 100* heat all week too!

 

The Adam's Crew were treated very nicely by the Ride and Drive Crew from GM, and we all got to take a hotlap in something extremely fast! I'll post my link so you all can see it below the pictures. It was a pleasure meeting them, and I look forward to seeing them at future events! :thumbsup:

 

Fine! Enough with the babbling! On to the pictures! I'm sure Justin and Lynn will also chime in with pictures. The Cars in the booth this year were in my opinion, a definite upgrade from last year too!

 

Booth

 

I was briefly able to stream Volume 8 on the TV...

Nice little hot rod. Pay attention to the Wheels after. I love Metal Polish in case you can't tell.

Saw this early, wanted it in the booth.

Came in later in the afternoon. Justin and I polished the wheels, then polished the hood in the dark. We killed it!

The next day I had to see the results in the sun!

I saw this, and as I was walking up to it, the nice gentleman and I agreed this was certainly booth worthy!

In the booth, we noticed the hood could use some correction, and of course more metal to polish! Nick joined in after a busy day at Big Boys. Justin also was all over this car. I don't think he stopped all week!

Saturday, this sexy truck was in the booth. The flames were painted so perfect, it was hard not to drool as I was correcting the fenders and hood from some swirling.

There was some great music played all week. My favorite of the bunch was Hermin's Hermits. Paul Revere and the Raiders played, as did Steppenwolf.

 

Here is Kiwi chatting it up with "Hermin" himself!

Paul Revere's Mustang Keyboard my dad warned me of.

The people in the Napa tent were more than great all week! They filled our Porta-Cool's water tank almost non-stop in the desert heat to keep the customers and the team cooled off. Matt, after another hard day at Big Boys and I headed over late one night to polish some wheels on their blown and chopped delivery truck. Here are some pictures of that. The blower only has the right side polished at that point.

Nice.

 

I stopped by the booth on Saturday and talked with Alan (the Kiwi LOL) for a while, and Meet Lynn but Mook was too busy detailing so I decided not to bug him. That Godfather Car was very sexy.

 

I have a million pictures of the show. Should I post them up here?

Seeing all those beautiful pictures you put up Mook makes me wish that I had had time to take some of the cars at the Peppermill. We had some truly beautiful cars come through the booth all week!! Next year I hope to find some free time to come get my hot lap lol!!!

 

Guys it was an amazing show and YOU, all our customers made it possible for us to have an amazing show this year. So I thank YOU!!!

 

20 years I have been here and I hope I don't break that string :)
