Alternative Fuels – Hydrogen Booster

July 8th, 2008 No comments

A buddy of mine is gathering all the parts needed to construct the booster. He actually is doing all the work too. He found a video of a booster in operation that is what we are looking to have when done.

July 4th Auto & Bike Show Extravaganza – A LAME SHOW

July 8th, 2008 No comments

I should have known not being sponsored by a major player in the Auto biz that this show was going to be lame, and it was. I think my email to the promoters says it all.

My son and I went to your Auto | Bike | Live Entertainment Showcase | Various Artists Concert Friday July 4th at 1:30PM. Our big draw was to see the Auto/Bike show. So since the schedule indicated that the “Cruise in auto & bike” started at 10:00 am – 1:00 pm with judging @ 2:00:pm we wanted to arrive just in time to see the judging going on. When we arrived the parking lot was near empty! There were few cars in the parking lot and after getting in and going into the stands there were 6 people there.

There were 5 cars and 1 bike to look at in the “show.” One car depicted cocaine on the hood and roof. A bit of advice, when you advertise a family event you might want to keep the drug scene out. There was maybe one good quality car out of the 5 and the 1 bike was nice, but come on! Where was the Auto/Bike show?! I have seen some quality car shows around the United States and even the Dodge Event at the Coliseum (which sucks) was better than your show.

The guy at the front gate had no idea what to do with my ticket/card when I presented it to him. He asked me if I was “on the list.” The security guard had to tell him what to do. I’ve said all that to say this, I want my money back! $20 went to you guys and you did not put on a show worth $20. I just need you to tell me how I go about getting my money back.

I did get a reply from one of the guys I emailed apologizing for such a lame show. (Removed his email address from this post). He was hired to run the Auto/Bike Show during the event but had nothing to do with the event itself. He agreed with me that the show was not as advertised. I’m sure the other “thugs” will not reply and I will not get my money back but I’ll keep trying. Maybe one day Jackson will have a quality Auto show come to town.

July 4th Auto & Bike Show Extravaganza

July 1st, 2008 No comments

My son and I and some of his friends are going to a 4th of July “Extravaganza” hosted at the Smith-Wills Stadium and promoted by Mississippi Live Statewide. The more I read the promoters website Mississippi Live Statewide and the fliers they posted, I certainly hope it is going to be worth-while.

The “flyers” are filled with spelling errors such as “Louxarious” 4 day Carnival Cruise and “Spounge” Bob will be there. They seem to cater to mainly musical artists and are adding the other attractions to draw in the crowds. They promise big money for winners including a softball tournament. They are charging $10 per person/per day when you purchase tickets on-line or at Be-Bop Records. They will be $15 at the gate. Plus they’re charging an arm-and-a-leg for registration of all kinds. We’ll only be going on the 4th and only to see the auto & bike show.

I hope they don’t disappoint as the last Car Show “Extravaganza” was lame. Not many people around here seem to want to put on a good car show.
