Winter Jam

Wow, as you can tell by the pictures, this thing was huge!  For me it started at 9:00am Friday morning.  Brian Batzel, his brother Jeff and friend Matt (Orchid Euro) all arrive at my place after a 13 hour drive from PA.  After a quick bite to eat and a few charity donations later we’re off to the screen print shop to make a run of the latest O.C.O.D. design by the Wildcard.  9 hours, 5 Skate sessions, 2 beer runs, a couple naps, and 1 O.C.O.D.  screen printed chef’s hat later we’re off too Daytona!

We arrive too late to get in on the Friday nights party action so we head to the hotel.   Saturday morning is the H2O and Bus show.  After I spin a drum in the Notch.   Brian and crew head to the water show as I head off to see all the bus’s and try and find a replacement drum.  As I’m sitting on my box of freshly made goodies looking utterly unprofessional ; ) I see Bradley and he introduces me to Dyno Don.  Bradley explains to him that I’ve spun a drum and being that Don is a type 3 guy he’s all excited to help and says “hold on a minute”!   He runs over to the stage and before I know it, he’s announcing to the crowd my predicament and begging for someone to help me.  As a crowd of 100 or so people all turn and look at me, I couldn’t help but wave.  Literally 30 seconds after the announcement 3 separate people come over to offer help and Eric actually has a drum in his hand!   THANK YOU DYNO DON!!!   Seeing as we were at a “life style event” we thought it best to find a dark remote looking spot in an ally to hand off the VW stuff.  What would people think if they saw you acting like you where at a VW show all out in the open?  The Hilton has a reputation to uphold ya know?  A T-shirt for a brake drum; gotta love the barter system.  Thanks again Erik!

Next up was the Bikini contest!  Jeff was chosen to be a judge and I don’t think he went an hour without referring to it or recounting vivid images of his experience for the rest of the trip. Can you blame him?  With the contest over and Jeff still in heaven we gather up all the necessary equipment to replace my drum and we head to the parking garage.  With the car on an incline, a sketchy jack and no jack stands we proceed to change the drum.  The car back on all fours (thanks to the AKJ crew) and no one with missing and or smashed limbs we head to the sonic cruise-in.  If the Sonic was an Applebee’s I would have thought we were at Bellaire Plaza with so many cars there!  With the parking lot thinning, we decide it’s time to head over to the after party.

Sunday morning we all feel like *ish*, except for Matt.  He’s the only smart one in the bunch.  As we head to the show the Oval’s points finally give up the ghost.  An hour later we arrive at the Port Orange City Center and get great parking spots.  The weather, car’s, people and exhibits where all awesome!  I’m still in aw over the Old Speed Experience.  Hats off to Chadd, Lo’ Cash, the Wolfsburg Kreuzers and everyone else for putting on such a great weekend and for all the countless hours they put in to make it happen.


A BIG thanks to Brian Jeff and Matt for pushing BOTH my cars around all weekend!
