The boys are looking forward to a great summer car show season. There are so many choices for going to a car show.
During this show we talk about our dumb luck during the past few weeks. It’s not really super bad luck. Just that things are happening that we can’t explain why. Both of our cars have broken down. And they are still acting like stubborn brats. Bob’s trike is still causing trouble and can’t figure it out.
There are so many topics to fit into a 1-hour show. We will be doing a review from last weekends appearances. The new trend in early morning car shows featuring every make and models – while sipping a great cup of coffee. We will try and fit in all the ev
We will have representatives from two car / bike shows that are trying to earn money to support those in need.
We will have 3 guests – Keven Frank with Milwaukee’s BrewTown Rumble vintage motorcycle show; Jeanette DesJardins with Car Chix women’s racing organization and then Dana Berling with a show by the Fox River.
Dare Devils – A Century of Spine Tingling Spectacular! In the studio we will have the Harley-Davidson Museum’s Exhibit’s Curator David Kreidler and Public Relations Guru Tim McCormick.
This is one of Wisconsin’s biggest car show. The lot of Noah’s Arch can hold over 1500 cars.
Jenifer works the the Wisconsin Dells Area Cruisers Car Club on putting on an excellent show. Each car is parked perfectly with plenty of room. When the gates open to let them all in the Area Cruiser spring into action. They work with such precision that all vehicles are parked in one hour.
The show includes a swap meet, vendor area, plenty of food vendors and all kinds of cool acts.
She also talks about the other car and truck shows happening that weekend throughout the area. The entire area has become a mecca of classic, hot rods, trucks and imports.
Any issues that might rise up in Wisconsin that would have a negative impact on motorcycles would be met with a very large constituency of citizens who would oppose it. They band together under the freedom of the national constitution and their organization known as ABATE. Which is the abbreviation for A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments.
Curt has been an advocate for car and motorcycle enthusiast for over 40 years. In the early 70’s – he, along with others, orchestrated discussions with the Wisconsin DMV and State Patrol that began many of the policies of today.
Wisconsin is proud to be the home state for Greg Steise dream. A famous line from a movie was “Build it and they will come…” and Greg has done just that. And boy do people come!
He built an amazing speed shop, car club hang out, vintage clothing store, restoration area and a unique car dealership.
Greg’s Speed Shop is a complete vintage vehicle repair and restoration services.
The boys will be sharing their plans for summer fun. You know there are plenty of car show events. Just check out Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio’s Calendar. For over 12 years it’s been posting events.
Which one should you go to?
We met Alex at the Milwaukee World of Wheels show. He came up to our Famous Flying Flyer Table and asked why most car shows don’t allow certain cars to join in. After a lengthy discussion – we thought why not put this conversation on the radio.
Guests: Brew City Gassers; Mark Davis, John Reidenbach, Brad Jancarik and Wisconsin Car Enthusiast Club; Alex Martinez
In the 70's Charlie Weddle became known as "The Black Fox" as he drove his 1970 Chevelle. However, he started his career competing in the local race tracks in the early 60's. In 1965 he placed 5th overall in the Milwaukee area Sportsman Stock car point standings at the Slinger, Cedarburg, Hales Corners and the State Fair quarter mile track.
Captn Bob and Arlo chat with Dennis Pittsenbarger from Discovery's Sticker Shock about the future of the show and what Dennis has been up to.
Colby Martin of SEMA Action Network talks about working on laws that can harm the automotive hobby
We thought it would cool to talk with the Ring “sisters-in-laws” and find out how it all works and what they see for the future of the Ring Brothers organization. And not to mention, we might learn some family secrets.
Guest: Jo Coddington and Pete Neale from Pete’s Hot Rod Shop in Queensland, Australia and Jim Tolkan of the Automotive Dealers Association of Mega Milwaukee.
Bob Bennett of Bennett Coachworks will be showcasing his builds at the 2019 Greater Milwaukee International Car & Truck Show presented the ADAMM.
Guests Dave Smith, Factory Five Racing and Bruce Tschida with Milwaukee World of Wheels.
Emily Reeves became popular by creating how-to videos for the weekend mechanics. Her “Flying Sparks Garage” YouTube channel became a huge hit showing how to replace brakes, install exhaust, engine upgrades and more.
We talked with Ricky about his hot rod build. We think the rod is in a class all by itself because Ricky blended cues from the rat, old school, traditional and modern designs. And it all works beautiful. Looking at the vehicle it’s hard to see all the body mods he had to change to make the final product. A true testament of his skills was how hard it was to see where he cut, chopped and bent the top and truck bed. The engineering of the chassis to fit the big block was really cool. The car has air conditioning, power steering and power brakes.
CARtoons Magazine is one of the coolest and funniest automotive magazines. Marc Methot rescued the magazine from the newsstand grave yard. The magazine started in the late 50’s and continued to be published until the 90’s. Where it fell into obscurity due to publishing cost and readers being distracted by that internet thinging.
The comic magazine includes short comic strips, short stories, cool artwork and kookie characters. The artwork is created by a lot of degenerate illustrators who gives the readers relate-able life experiences with cars. All subscribers can’t wait to see the next issue because each issue had a ton of fun to stare at.
Marc is a regular dude that stepped up and successfully obtained the trademark to this magazine. Since then he has been a busy guy. Running a print and digital magazine takes a lot of time.
John Buck is the owner of Rod Shows which sponsors the world famous Grand National Roadster Show. This year the GNRS will celebrate it’s 70th year. This show is considered the Grand Daddy of them All. Over 3 days of hosting over 500 vehicles inside several buildings and on Saturday you will find cool rides parked all over the grounds. It’s a tradition of car club members to bring their unique rides to help celebrate the GNRS. These rides don’t have to be roadsters to attend.
However, to compete for the “America’s Most Beautiful Roadster”, builders from all over bring their latest roadster builds. Each entry is painstakingly crafted because of the prestige of this grand award.
