RPM show March 30, 2010

RPM Formed for 2010

-The Next Generation Automotive Lifestyle Festival
From the Creator of Hot Import Nights

March 30, 2010 (Huntington Beach, CA) – Keeping his eye on the future of the automotive lifestyle movement, Rich Goodwin, the original founding member of Hot Import Nights will unveil a new car show property targeting today’s automotive enthusiasts, known as RPM.

Goodwin guided the Hot Import Nights series from its inception to its eventual sale in late 2004 when he left the company and the industry. Since that time he has recognized an obvious new trend towards a performance based market that includes imported and domestic vehicles with similar style and associated lifestyle attributes that has gone untapped.

RPM will be a One Night Only Production debuting at Chicago’s Soldier Field on July 10th, 2010. The show will return to Hidden Valley Event Park on Saturday August 7th as a daytime festival. Both events are expected to draw in big crowds and hundreds of performance based show vehicles.

“The industry as we have come to know it has changed over the past few years; however, there are more enthusiasts out there than ever before. The truth is, they are simply growing tired of the same old things and they want something new, something fresh and something that is reflective of the automotive lifestyle trends of the current day,” said Andy Goodman, Car Show Director of RPM “The RPM event series will key in on these new trends and while we understand that entertainment and lifestyle elements outside of the car show are important, our main focus will be on the car show, the car owner and the industry that supports them and that will never change.”

RPM has plans to expand in 2011, but as Rich Goodwin says, “It’s about doing fewer and better events and establishing a brand first. Unlike the shows of today we intend to build one event at a time working with the community, with the local retailers and manufacturers.”

Here’s some DIY mods me and my cousin did with his CF material wrap. Of course taking part the car was fun and wrapping the door arm rest panels, the dash trim, and the center console where the shifter is was a lot of work but theres a sense of accomplishment when you can say you modding your car with your own 2 hands. Sorry the pics aren’t any better but if you go to Destrons Garage there’s better ones there for you to check out.

The material looks great and can be purchases through his website Destrons Garage (links on the side bar-roll call) definitely worth checking out and totally affordable.
