Happy 70th Birthday Mike!!! Our founder, our friend and a great guy, Mike Thies. People may not know but, what we do at South East Wheels Events, to Mike is not a job, he is not in it to get rich. It is nice when the website pays for itself and he doesn’t have to rob the piggy bank to keep the doors open but, Mike has this free website calendar of automotive related events, because of his love for the car show.
Before I continue a word from our sponsor. Good friends of Mike, who have supported South East Wheels Events for many years. You know I must be talking about the folks at StreetSide Classics, http://www.streetsideclassics.com the Nation’s Top Consignment Dealer of classic and collectable cars. Sell that project car and get $$$ the same day! Call Richard 678-279-1609 Tell them Lee sent you and promised you the best deal in the house!!! and always folks consignment is free, call for details...
One thing that I want to share with you, is how many people Mike Thies has helped. We at South East Wheels Events, list an astronomical amount of car shows for free. Many of those car shows are from churches, car clubs and other organizations who are raising money for their cause. By providing a free listing to car show enthusiasts in the South East, it gets the word out to the people that matter. That person is you, the car owner.
Does it work? I was at a car show in Warner Robins, sponsored by the Freaks of Nature; a young man drove up in a white Mustang. As I was taking pictures I asked him if he was familiar with South East Wheels Events. He told me that as he was driving down the interstate, he checked the South East Wheels Events website and saw that the car show was right down the street, so he stopped, registered and hung out. We all made new friends that day. That my readers, is a true story.
Thank you Mike for everything you do, not just for the car owners who South East Wheels Events makes it easier to locate the best car shows, but also to all the children you have fed, the puppies you have saved and all the other charities that benefit from the car shows you support free of charge.
To my friend to my mentor, Happy Birthday and may the Lord Bless you with many more.
Until next time may the sun shine and the trophies be many-lee
