Hey! Click here to replay the show.

Ma Ma Tried Motorcycle Show

We are going to have the founding fathers - Scott Johnson and Warren Heir, JR- on talking about the 2nd Ma Ma Tried Show.

Last year this show came out of nowhere to become one of the most talked about shows of 2014.

The event showcases handpicked variations of anything with 2 wheels. The show will bring in dirt bikes, flat track bikes, ice bikes, hill climbers, choppers and café racers from around the world. The founders will tell you that the owners and builders of these bikes are equally important to showing  the bikes.  The goal is to prove that there are common factors with all 2 wheeler bike lovers.

This year the show will be a two day event. Saturday, February 21st and Sunday, February 22nd. It will be held in a giant warehouse located at 408 West Florida Street, Milwaukee, WI. The event is being held in conjunction with the Iron Horse Hotel and Harley Davidson Museum.

Car Craft Summer Nationals
David Frieburger – TEN Senior VP of Content Strategy, Senior Editor of Hot Rod Magazine and co-host of Road Kill TV.

This year the people from The Enthusiast Network with Car Craftmagazine are hosting the popular Midwest Car Craft Summer Nationals in Milwaukee, WI from Friday, July 17 to Sunday, July 19th.

The Midwest Car Craft Summer Nationals have a reputation of gathering over 6 thousand street machines and muscle cars. However, David will assure us all that all years of hot rods, customs, muscle and super cars are accepted to attend. ( vans are not or other boring soccer toting vehicles)

David will confirm event being held at the Wisconsin State Fair grounds with the Milwaukee Mile.

Calling all Car Clubs in Southeastern Wisconsin

All car club members are invited to a meeting to share what everyone is doing for 2015.

This is the second year for the meeting where the idea is to make sure that each car event doesn’t interfere with others happening during the same time. Competition for car show attendees is getting harder because of the many choices there are in the Southeastern Wisconsin.  So this idea of sharing information is to help make sure every club has a successful show.

Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio has been discussing this event and will be in attendance. It’s always been the goal of Captn Bob and Arlo to assist all car clubs, promoters and most important all car lovin’ attendees.

You will need to RSVP by February 1st by contacting Paul Admec “Gas Guzzler’s” car club. His email is
