promotions and publishing.
FLHRA - How did you get interested in cars

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
