These folks are by far the rowdiest, most enthusiastic club members we've ever seen here at Meguiar's!


Barry was cruising by and saw all the Mini Coopers parked outside and stopped in to share some Car Guy Stories about the Mini Cooper too!


More pics on Monday...

How great to learn (from the Master) how to keep our perfect little cars looking perfect...forever. Mike, you're the best!

And how cool was that...our very own surprise Celebrity Guest Star, Barry Meguiar!

Thanks, Mike. I had a great time.

What better way than to spend a Saturday with great friends learning from Mike how to keep the Mini looking like new. I learned so much about detailing, I think I might send him a Christmas card :) . But really, it was a great class and there is more to keeping a car looking great than just washing it!

Hey Mike,

Thanks again for another awesome clinic! This time I took notes! :D But I think I'm going to have to attend a few more clinics before I really know your presentation by heart! :D Which by the way, is next to impossible cause your wealth of knowledge seems to just keep going and going and going!:bow

We had a great group today! It was fun, and too bad the hands on was kinda cut short, but I know everyone had a great time!

Ohhh btw, with your suggestion about using NXT glass cleaner for the kitchen, I decided to use some insane shine on my black "leatherette" shoes to shine/darken them up. Works great!!!

See you soon.

I just want to thank everyone for letting me butt in on your class yesterday. It was lots of fun. It was great getting to hear Mike in person and get 1st hand knowledge - a chance I wouldn't probably have again since I live in Texas.
BTW, everyone's Mini's were awesome! I'd never had a chance to really look at a Mini up close and thought they were very cool. Not to mention I didn't really know what C3 was about - that was even cooler, keep up the good work!

Thanks for all of your advice and enthusiasm. :xyxthumbs The time flew by and I could easily see coming back for more. Of course that will mean ordering even more product. :D

Here's a shot from yesterday in the garage.


BTW, for anyone interested, yesterday was a beautiful morning. On my way down to the Meguiar's detailing clinic, I stopped in long beach and took a couple photos (http://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56370).

Thanks for your great presentation Mike -- your enthusiasm is endless.

Oh I have so much to try. And so much to learn.

Thanks for sharing your passion and knowledge about cars and car care, Mike. It was a great surprise to have Barry Meguiar poke his head in to share with the group.

Many thanks to Meguiar's for the goodie bag too. :db:

Looks like fantastic cars:xyxthumbs

In the "coffee, donuts, and goodies picture", what are the products on the left? Is that the same accessories in new/ old packaging?

I believe those are Marine/Boat care line products.

I had a great time and was suprised to learn from one of the "stories" that we terrorized the same stomping grounds when we grew up. :xyxthumbs

Thanks to Richard for setting it up and to Mike for all the insightful knowledge transfer! You both are Masters! :bow

I know that I'll be attending again in 2006...
