Seems like I just came off the road from the last event of 2018 and here it is, nearly time for a new car show season to begin. I always get cranked up for the car show season—it’s a chance to see some old friends, make new ones, check out some really cool cars, and talk car art—but this year I’m particularly excited because it represents a new direction for me. Instead of the 10-12 shows I’ve done each year for the past six summers, I’m only doing three major events and three regional affairs. Honestly folks, I’m not getting any younger and the travel was really getting to me. Something had to change.
On the big show end of things, the year will start with the Ameila Island Concours d-Elegance in March, then the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix in July, followed by the Monterey Automobilia show during Monterey Motorsports Reunion week at the end of August. Concentrating on these larger, national events will help expose my work to an exponentially larger audience than doing twice the number of smaller regional shows and really help reduce my travel. This doesn’t mean I’m going to discontinue supporting those British car gatherings that are still near and dear to my heart. I’ll continue to support them with gift certificates and framed art.
