Tony Allen Q & A's

FLHRA - Letís begin with you telling me a little about yourself. Basics. When and where were you born? Where did you study? Etc.

Tony - I was born December 19th in Las Vegas, Nevada. I served two years in the Navy in the mouth of the Mekong Delta - Vietnam. My career has been in marketing, promotions and publishing.

FLHRA - How did you get interested in cars and bikes? And how did you start in the line of putting car shows together?

Tony - My first car was a 1949 Mercury. I've always loved cars and bikes and the enthusiasm shown by young and old when they see cars on display. It's my way of bringing a little bit of history and nostalgia into their lives.

FLHRA - What is it about hot rods, muscle cars and hogs that is so exhilarating and uniting?
Tony - Cars and bikes are works of art and history all rolled up into one. When you're at a car and bike show it brings you back to happier days. Each one is different, expressing their builder's expression and design.

FLHRA - Tell us a little about the Florida Hot Rod & Hogs car and bike show, the magazine and FLHRH Sound Machine.
Tony - Florida Hot Rods & Hogs magazine is a state wide motorsports publication distributed at participating Hooters restaurants, stores and better auto parts and motorcycle shops. Plus we direct mail over 2,000 to motorsport fans. The FLHRH Sound Machine is a one-of-a-kind mobile D.J. studio that can turn any venue into a major car and bike show. We produced all of the Rock Til' You Drop Car Shows downtown Fort Myers. The shows would get bigger and the streets seemed to get smaller. At that time we were drawing over 20,000 spectators and were running out of room. We also wanted to bring in some huge celebrities like Chip Foose, "Big Daddy" Don Garlits, Shirley Muldowney and Buddy Baker. There was no way to pay for it without a spectator gate. This annual event is held at the Lee Civic Center, Fort Myers, Florida the first Sunday in December.

FLHRA - What type of cars and bikes have been at past events? What else will people be able to take pleasure in during the event?
There have been every car, truck and bike imaginable, including vintage fire trucks, a Challenger on display that was custom built by Chip Foose on his television show, Overhaulin'; an Eddie Van Halen truck designed by Chip Foose and built by Boyd Coddington. We also have swamp buggies, drag and air boats.

FLHRA - Share a little about past guests you have had. How did you choose those line-ups and what did each of them bring to the event?
Tony - We have always had world class celebrities that are rarely seen in Southwest Florida. They include Chip Foose, "Big Daddy" Don Garlits, Shirley Muldowney, Buddy Baker, Rick Fairless, Dennis Gage, George Barris, Camee Edelbrock, Billy Lane and David Kindig. We've also produced concerts headlining nationally known celebrities such as The Flamingos, John Davidson, Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, George Galfo's Mystics, The Crests, The Diamonds, The Four Aces, Jo Ann Castle and Bobby Friss. Our goal has always been to bring the very best to Southwest Florida.

FLHRA - Give us the basics about Dec. 6, 2015 date, prices, gate time opening, etc.
Tony - Spectator parking is FREE and general admission to the all-day event is just $15 per adult and children under 10 are FREE when accompanied by an adult.

FLHRH Ė Tell us about some of the charities that you have helped.
Tony - We are very proud to have assisted many great groups and organizations in raising money for such worthy causes such as The American Cancer Society, Lee Builders Care, Harry Chapin Food Bank, Charlotte County Coalition for the Homeless, Progeria, Shriners, March of Dimes - Bikers for Babies, Sheriff Youth Camp Florida, Bishop Verot and many more. We gladly provided the required liability insurance for the weekly Merchant's Crossing Cruise-in and have never asked to be paid for any of the charity car and bike show ads in Florida Hot Rods & Hogs. It's always been donated by myself.
